Knowing isn't Achievement...

Not only the Internet can haunt us with our memories but thanks to social networks nowadays we are not obliged to remember every person we meet. Much of this doesn't even need to be said in Dan Visel words when tries to associate this argument with Plato's Phaedrus. Do we still need to remember names, formulas, phone numbers? Will it be a solution to start showing skills to our kids at early ages such as Dangerous Books for Boys?

Now back to our title. S. Downes says that knowing isn't achievement...It's a continuous act of becoming! Thanks Mr. Downes. It’s the journey and the process and the questions, not the destination or the result or absolute answers.

  1. I agree that knowing isn't achieving. Achieving is something specific which needs us to know, but it doesn't mean that it will be everythings. I think most of us agrees with it based on experience.

  2. I also agree. There seems to be a lot of reason for this statement, but the most obvious one is that it's not our main objective. Experience is something we can't just neglect in learning.
