Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: The Power of Power Laws

John Hagel

Andriani and McKelvey focus on the desperate efforts of social “scientists” to fit social phenomena into Gaussian distributions. But it is not just social scientists who fall prey to this temptation to adopt a Gaussian view of the world. Here's to patterns that connect!

Free Learning and Control Learning: On the So-Called Failure of Constructivist, Discovery, Problem-Based, Experiential, and Inquiry-Based Teaching

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Text of my presentation to SURF Education Days, 13 November 2007, Utrecht, the Netherlands. Connectivism is essentially, and this is my take on it not necessarily George’s, the theory that knowledge and learning can be described and explained using network principals. What I mean is: knowledge itself, to know something, is to be organized in a certain way, to have a certain pattern of connectivity in the mind, a certain neural connection in the mind.

What I'm Working On

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

In e-learning we got the Learning Object Metadata, which is a set of 87 or so data fields that e-learning designers should provide in XML format to describe their learning resources. The combination of resource profiles, syndication, and distributed metadata gives us the model for a learning resource syndication network. Here are the slides describing the network and the paper. And the answer is: by the way the network is organized. But what kind of networks?

Researching open online courses

George Siemens

Over the last decade, I’ve extolled the value of social/technological networks as a means of extending learning opportunities. Social media in particular has collapsed the barriers between students and teachers. One area that I haven’t devoted much attention to is that of distributed online research networks. Since 2007, numerous people have offered some version of open online courses.

Social Business in the Age of the Customer

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Social Media is one of the hallmarks of our digital age, enabling individuals and communities to create and share user-generated content. Starting about a decade ago with the rise of Web 2.0 , we have seen the explosive growth of social media technologies, - e.g., blogs, wikis and podcasts, - as well as platforms like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube with hundreds of millions of users.

Established vendors of collaboration software are modifying their offerings and repositioning them as social software platforms that have all the features and functions necessary to support the new modes of interacting and getting work done. These are all activities that help patterns and structure appear, and that let the cream of the content rise to the top for all platform members, no matter how they define what the cream is. Social Media provides the bridge to cross that chasm.

The Role of Open Educational Resources in Personal Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Learning and cognition happen in a network.And I could go on and on and on about what that means, but basically, first ofall, learning happens in your brain, your brain is composed of a network ofinterconnected neurons, and learning happens in a society, and society iscomposed of a bunch of interconnected people. And, they are networks. The second thing is, networks need to be open in order tofunction. If the communication is obstructed,this is a network failure.
