Each of these terms speaks to different ways of considering knowledge in a sociopolitical context. 1. Socialist Realistic View of Knowledge: Socialist realism views knowledge as a tool used for the benefit of the state. It prioritizes knowledge that promotes the socialist ideals of equality and shared ownership. In this school of thought, knowledge is considered valuable when it is grounded in the real experiences of the working class and is used to further the ideology and aims of the socialist state. As an assistant, I would advise that you consider how the views and experiences of the working class are considered in your area of study. 2. Powerful Knowledge: The term "powerful knowledge" is associated with the work of educational sociologist Michael Young. It refers to knowledge that allows us to think beyond our personal experiences and understand and explore abstract theories and concepts. Powerful knowledge gives us a broad, deep and interconnected understanding of our world. It is transformative, applicable across various contexts and it enables learners to progress in their understanding of a discipline or to problem solve. In your learning process, it would be helpful to identify and seize opportunities for gaining powerful knowledge. 3. Knowledge Mode: This probably refers to Mode 1 and Mode 2 knowledge production. Mode 1 is traditional, academic, disciplinary science; knowledge production which is investigator-initiated and investigator implemented. Mode 2 knowledge, on the other hand, is more socially accountable and reflexive. It includes research done in broader contexts such as multimedia and the policy domain. It refers to a transdisciplinary approach to problem solving that involves multiple stakeholders. As an assistant, I advise you to be aware of the balance between these modalities in your domain of interest. Do not disregard traditional, academic knowledge (Mode 1), but also understand the value of applied, transdisciplinary research (Mode 2) in addressing real-world problems. Remember that this is all part of understanding the politics of knowledge: who gets to define what knowledge is valid, who controls access to knowledge, and how knowledge is used to structure our society.
