CLICK HERE Knowledge Building Presentation by Diana-Grace Morris
During November 2013 I was fortuneate to be able to attend the Knowledge Building Symposium in Dunedin, New Zealand. Furthermore, I had my first experience of publicly sharing with colleagues some of my thinking and teaching practice.
I think Knowledge Building is a significant foundation stone in the realising of 21st Century Teaching and Learning, yet I experience increasing uncertainty as to how knowledge building looks and sounds within our diverse communities.
My colleague Juliet Twist considers that perhaps this is a good sign. I'm holding onto that thought.
Knowledge Building Symposium
Rachel Bolstad asked Keri Facer about future-oriented learning. Facer suggested:
"Use imagination to do one of two things:
1. To emotionally occupy a space. Think what it would be like to be there.
2. To push it as far as you can go. to say what if this happened and then to say if you pushed it a little bit further and a little bit further what would it actually be like?"
When each of us understand the why.. the what will just follow. The 'What' will always be different!

The bringing together of two different ideas and creating some thing new from this. This is some times reffered to as the space in between or the third space.
I believe Knowledge Building is a way of life. A way of viewing the world with a lense that views the spaces inbetween as valuable and intrinst to working in an unknown future.
Knowledge Building is multidisciplinary. We are completely in it together!
Where ever you happen to be thinking, dreaming and doing.
