Ultimately, it’s my belief that social networks are systems that can be intentionally designed, and intelligently managed, to ensure that their primary impact is a positive one for the people who use them, and for the world.

Globalization in Transition

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Companies underinvest in training and skill development,… what if we designed [jobs] to be productive and valuable?…

from enlightenment to entanglement

Harold Jarche

This is the great societal learning challenge today — sensemaking in a networked world. Our existing education and training systems are not designed for this task. We may discern some patterns from the past but our current challenges — as we shift to an electric-digital-networked age — are unique. There are three major differences between our networked age and the era that followed the advent of European printing.

New Issues for OERs

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

the use of content-addressable networks such as Interplanetary File System (IPFS) - is licensing relevant when certain forms of publication are permanently open? Open platforms, analytics, algorithms and adaptive tools to support open learning content. I’m especially thinking here of learning analytics. The true issue here is: how can we design OERs so they can't be enclosed in this way?

19 September 2019. In addition, the judicious application of OER, in combination with appropriate pedagogical methodologies, well-designed learning objects and the diversity of learning activities, can provide a broader range of innovative pedagogical options to engage both educators and learners to become more active participants in educational processes and creators of content as members of diverse and inclusive Knowledge Societies.

#AI4Good: Augmenting Human Interaction

Beth Kanter

Allison Fine, my co-author for the Networked Nonprofit , and I are actively researching the use of AI for Good, in particular to scale giving and to spread generosity. When we think about applying AI to philanthropy and fundraising, we have to ask this question: What data-based analytical tasks are not yet automated or could be done on a larger scale and that would free up time for the nonprofit staff to focus on the human interaction with the donor?

The ethics of learning analytics will therefore need to be developed on criteria specific to education. 2019) Ethical Codes As Standards of Conduct While ethics commonly applies to people in general, there is a specific class of ethics that applies to people by virtue of their membership in a professional group.

My 25 Years of Ed Tech

My contributions included this effort in learning design. s easy to forget the importance of the early instant messaging services, because they played such a significant role in developing a lot of the thinking that would eventually result on social networks and more. By 1993 I had written The Network Phenomenon , which is essentially a post-constructivist post-cognitivist theory of knowledge. For me, 2002 was the year of learning object repository networks.

Educational Research in Learning Technology

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I think the key point here is to note that not everything is designed to increase test scores. Unfortunately, ‘the vast array of literature involving learning technology evaluation makes it challenging to acquire an accurate sense of the different aspects of learning that are evaluated, and the possible approaches that can be used to evaluate them’ (Lai & Bower, 2019). Also aka 'design research', where proving something works is all that it takes) - what's wanted?
