in his new blog connectivism, george siemans puts forward his hypothesis on the role of exclusion in learning. simply put, he believes that when learning we have some sort of mechanism which excludes information that we have no need for or interested in. we can, of course, choose to learn information we'd normally exclude, but doing so takes a great deal of effort. i agree with george completely regarding the role of exclusion. (see my comment on his post.)
one idea that I have after being inspired by george's thoughts is that the difficulty in learning to change our way of learning is often one of the major reasons why workplace learning professionals need to exist.
