Applying Wearable Technology to Facilitate the Transmission of Tacit Knowledge for Practice-Based Learning

Abstract

The 10,000-Hour Rule, the key to success in any field, is simply a matter of practicing a specific task for more than 10 thousand hours (Gladwell, 2008). The ability to speak a language or knead dough requires to a lot of hours practice to accumulate tacit knowledge. Whether the wearable technology can facilitate the transmission of tacit knowledge in specific skill learning remains an interesting and critical research question. The objective of this paper is to apply a wearable technology with Electromyography (EMG) and Electroencephalography (EEG) to detect body information and examine how wearable technology facilitates the transmission of masters' tacit knowledge in the knead dough skills learning process. This paper designed a practice-based learning system with EMG and EEG to record hand movements and the change of brain wave when the bread apprentices make breads. The findings of this paper contribute to the practice of wearable technology applications and tacit knowledge transmission in learning.
