8:45 PM Quinnovator @avanbarn definitely the egg first! #lrnchat
8:45 PM mizminh @hjarche @lrnchat and connect new-to-new #lrnchat

8:45 PM vidyakumar A1) Metaphors help establish a connection between the old and the new. #lrnchat
8:46 PM kmarranzino @Quinnovator I had a teacher who called this “having a hook to hang it on.” I still use that, um, metaphor. #lrnchat

8:48 PM write2tg RT @perrinia: Metaphors, like a good joke, require an understanding of culture and an awareness of context. a2) #lrnchat
8:48 PM MrKMaston @lrnchat A2) It relies on communicator’s ability to convey the correct and relevant kind of metaphor as an aid to communication. #lrnchat
8:48 PM CynnamonStelly A2) It depends. Sometimes they may have to be explained in order for the point to be understood. Other times, easy to understand. #lrnchat
8:48 PM Quinnovator a2) reckon metaphors can be a) extended too far, b) wrong, c) bring emotional baggage #lrnchat
8:49 PM Quinnovator a2) may need multiple metaphors to fully refine understanding #lrnchat
8:49 PM Minimologist I’m late, but I’m here. I’ll just lurk on the sideline until I catch up… #lrnchat
8:49 PM CandiceCPLP A2) they can be a problem, esp with other cultures, or when others aren’t ‘in the know’ #lrnchat
8:49 PM write2tg A2) Not all metaphors are helpful. Some bad ones stick around and hinder further learning. #lrnchat
8:49 PM Quinnovator @CandiceCPLP good point; metaphor base may not be shared! #lrnchat
8:49 PM Quinnovator RT @perrinia: Metaphors, like a good joke, require an understanding of culture and an awareness of context. a2) #lrnchat
8:49 PM DrJessupS A2) Context is important. I may not understand the metaphor or the new idea. #lrnchat
8:50 PM c_clavin A1: Metaphors are thought-provoking. #Ineverthoughtaboutitlikethat #lrnchat https://t.co/gzBSqW07Lf
8:50 PM vidyakumar A2) Metaphors help when used well and appropriately. #lrnchat
8:50 PM JD_Dillon A2) If relationship between concepts is lacking or not based on existing knowledge, can add to confusion. #lrnchat https://t.co/3olVRjaOKM
8:50 PM carlakarijolich a2) metaphors can fail when we assume shared understandings #lrnchat
8:50 PM mizminh Metaphors emerged in an oral context. Listening!Connecting would have lead to learning. Metaphors/learning – ancient. #lrnchat
8:50 PM eLearninCyclops Q2) Metaphors don’t work if they are not cross cultural – Assuming your audience is culturally diverse #lrnchat
8:50 PM kmarranzino A2) Can hinder if the assumed existing knowledge isn’t known at all; like culturally- or regionally-specific knowledge. #lrnchat
8:50 PM write2tg A2) Metaphors need context and culture provides this context. #lrnchat
8:51 PM write2tg RT @eLearninCyclops: Q2) Metaphors don’t work if they are not cross cultural – Assuming your audience is culturally diverse #lrnchat
8:51 PM JD_Dillon A2) But then if you accidentally use a simile instead of a metaphor … #lrnchat
8:51 PM Quinnovator a2) we can assume folks will make the right inferences from metaphors, but context, biases can interfere #lrnchat
8:51 PM CandiceCPLP @fugu13 Gotcha; interpretation is elastic, tho, as just demonstrated! #lrnchat
8:51 PM JD_Dillon RT @kmarranzino: A2) Can hinder if the assumed existing knowledge isn’t known at all; like culturally- or regionally-specific knowledge. #…
8:51 PM JeremyDBond I am as late as an airplane during a snowstorm. #lrnchat
8:51 PM avanbarn A2: how to we ensure that all can relate to the metaphor? Is it individual or cultural or other? #lrnchat https://t.co/zkgERNQF5d
8:52 PM Minimologist @lrnchat A2: Metaphors can distract my more literal-minded clients. A concrete example works better for them. #lrnchat
8:52 PM perrinia there we go. I expect many of these, #lrnchat https://t.co/zZP62cWRcM
8:52 PM fugu13 A2) metaphors can absolutely hinder understanding, from the ‘obvious’ ones making it difficult to grasp, say, wave-particle duality #lrnchat
8:52 PM vidyakumar A2) Metaphors can hinder understanding if they are not relevant to the audience. #lrnchat
8:53 PM avanbarn A2: Metaphor may not work if transmission and reception do not have similar base…maybe? #lrnchat
8:53 PM jsuzcampos RT @lrnchat: Q2) Do metaphors always help, or can they hinder, understanding? #lrnchat
8:53 PM jyoti__gupta #lrnchat a2) An accurate metaphor probably doesn’t hurt but an inappropriate one could do damage.
8:53 PM kmarranzino @JD_Dillon Duuuuude. You just blew my mind! 😉 #lrnchat

8:53 PM jmarrapodi Q0) Jean Marrapodi, Applestar Productions, Providence, RI. I learned the cool thing Google Analytics tracks. #lrnchat
8:53 PM write2tg A2) Some metaphors are good but hinder new thoughts or new ways to understand a concept – aka iceberg metaphor for culture #lrnchat
8:54 PM c_clavin A2: Both. All teaching methods should be used with consideration for your audience. #lrnchat #metaphors https://t.co/AtdlLN4LW1
8:54 PM carlakarijolich a2) some metaphors oversimplify a complex system. Can be good for an overview but not the details #lrnchat
