Local Knowledge

The tacit knowledge is difficult to articulate, can be communicated to others but it is not possible to be transferred, it is not possible to be assured that to the other it will include/understand it person and it will take control of him. It arises from the experience, the personal reflection and the answers that everyone has given to its needs in a specific context. Catalan Peluffo and (2002) describes, it of the following form: the tacit knowledge he is that one that a person, community, organization or country, have built-in or stored in its mind, in its culture and which it is difficult to explain is made up of: ideas, experiences, skills, abilities, customs, values, beliefs, history, knowledge of the ecological context or knowledge like mental skill (understanding of reading, resolution of problems, to write, to visualize ideas, to analyze, to synthesize, etc.) that allows him to accede to another one more complex or to solve new problems. Whereas the explicit knowledge is another form to call to the public or personal knowledge codified, since it travels in the organization through any written expression, can be conceptuar and therefore it can to disclose. The explicit knowledge has been defined as the objective knowledge and rational that can be expressed with words, numbers, formulas, etc.

the previous one can be transmitted more easily that. – Local Knowledge and global knowledge: it arises when it crosses the culture the ecological premises or, which comes to define itself as the knowledge existing and developed around the specific conditions of women and native or original men in a specific geographic area. Whereas the global knowledge is the one that forms by means of networks without having a location, because creates that it they belong to different geographic points. It is constructed from local realities, but of the interchange it is systematized and it is become lost in thought of the premises.
