The getting of wisdom

Knowledge wisdom information Image: Nelio A/B testing

I love the internet. I found the first picture and looked at it for a while and wondered whether it depicted wisdom properly. I then discovered we have diagrams and explanations for the Intelligence Hierarchy and they seem to apply to financial management. I was so impressed with Barry Ritholtz’ blog I subscribed. Here was someone who had a real clarity in explaining things and the comments which came under the post only opened up that discussion and explanation further.Intelligence Hierarchy As a teacher I am thinking this has to apply to education. Where do we place data, data collection and what do we do with it? As teachers we have to be creating the information trail memes so students always access good quality information and can see why some information is not worthy of serious attention. We are trying to give our students knowledge and a capacity to manipulate all this data and information into a life where they can contribute and thrive. So where do we stand on wisdom? Do we know what it is? Do we want to achieve it ourselves and encourage our students to achieve it? How do you do that in a world driven by big data and swamped by information good and bad? One of the people who commented said it was insight. We ought to be looking at insight as a significant component of wisdom. That is why I like the first picture. It says it clearly. You can be launched into the vast array of data and information but you can sort it out into components which can be used or discarded and you have the capacity to drive through all of that and have good outcomes. The first picture spells out clarity of thought and focus. What do you think?
