I do not play golf

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

It was again Andrea who led me to think. This time the starting point was the reference she made to Amartya Sen’s capability thinking in economics.

Lately I have become more aware of my sometimes rather weird way of making connections between different ideas, having a train of thoughts. What is weird is that these chains clearly and completely make sense for me, and I often think this is the case with others, too. I seriously believe that people will get them without me explaining them anyhow.

Here is the latest course of thoughts:

Amartya Sen’s capability approach

Capacity building
(why not capability building?)

Wikiversity’ s Potential In Global Capacity Building
(and all the other open and free wiki-projects potential)

National broadcasting companies role as enablers

What all this mean for education and learning?

Is the real issue anyway the time horizon? 65 years?
165 years? 1650 years?

I do not play golf.
