Memory, Reconsolidation and Big Questions…

Orange_no_drawer_2 I am a big fan of big questions. I think that sessions like the Game Design Challenge and its “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” cousin – “The Great ILS Challenge“(scroll down, its #800), force us to ask questions about what we can do. I love the Learning Circuits Blog Big Question of the Month (BQOTM) and think that it has really spurred some insightful discussions that might not have occurred otherwise. I do have to say though that the BQOTM has a big brotherEdge_banner out there and it asks REALLY big questions.The Edge describes it’s purpose as “To arrive at the edge of the world’s knowledge, seek out the most complex and sophisticated minds, put them in a room together, and have them ask each other the questions they are asking themselves.” The main way that Edge gets at these questions is ironically enough, through asking their annual question. You can see the past questions here, and if you doubt the bigness of their questions, past ones have included; What is your dangerous idea?, What’s you law?, What’s your question? and What now?
