On the Difference between Knowing and Knowing about.
This essay explores the characteristic failure of traditional formal educational methods to teach the learner much which will remain for long in that person's memory. It discusses a physiological model of learning/remembering and compares it to some other models and metaphors of cognition. It distinguishes between learning and remembering, and identifies two ways of knowing and two kinds of knowledge. The paper concludes with a discussion of laboratory learning as a way of reinforcing cognitive learning with experiences which involve the learner on more than one level of learning and knowing.
