A shift to focusing on more process in our classrooms will inevitably have some risk, that is why it is essential that we create an environment that builds trust.
Trust is necessary because of the unavoidable fumbling that occurs as we try to express and share tacit knowledge. Without it, we may lack respect for the other needed to stay with them as they fumble.
MORE IDEAS FROM bloom's taxonomy
Tacit Knowledge is defined as the "know how" (process) rather than "know what" (content). A part of it could be codified into explicit knowledge. However, it is often difficult to explain just by writing it down. It is something you learn by doing.
Explicit Knowledge, on the other hand, refers to information we see on the books or the internet.
Although there's a difference, one is not dependable without the other.
We have to realize that content and process binds each other. For us to be successful, we need to have knowledge, but more importantly, know how to put it to work.
And even though "knowledge" is at the lowest end of Bloom's Taxonomy, it is still an essential component of how we start learning and realizing things.
A lot of people feel that learning "content" in schools is not as valuable as it once was, they often refer to the "doctor analogy"
"I want to know that my doctor did really well in school and thoroughly understand the practice of medicine.."
People would be rest assured knowing that their doctor knows how the process works than know what the process is.
“Any education environment that only emphasizes one form of knowledge or the other [tacit or explicit] is failing the human brain."
We mostly learn by doing, yet school mostly replaced apprenticeships as a form of learning.
One reason why schools replaced hands-on learning is that apprenticeship is suitable for smithing and weaving, but modern work is mental and needs dedicated training inside the classroom. However, this answer is false as many knowledge positions need some apprenticeship. For example, doctors must complete a residency, lawyers need to article, and grad school for scientists is really an apprenticeship.
Formal discipline theory led to views that learning Latin and geometry were important, even if few students would use these skills in their lives, because by their formal character they acted as the ideal dumbbells for mental strength training.
Training on one task didn’t help much with training on dissimilar tasks. Identical elements theory suggested that in order for training in one skill to apply to another, the two problems must share common elements.
