Remove 2019 Remove Change Remove Design Remove Patterns

Cynefin St Davids Day 2019 (2 of 5)

Dave Snowden

In my last post I explained the change from ‘Simple’ to ‘Obvious’ in the ordered domain. In the post I want to look at the different types of practice or knowledge use in each domain and explain why I changed ‘Emergent Practice’ to ‘Exaptive discovery” in the complex domain and added the stress condition to Novely in the Chaotic Domain. In both these cases there has been little change since the Cynefin Framework first appeared in something close to its current form.

Liminal Cynefin & ‘control’

Dave Snowden

It’s why I like to tune into a conference before speaking and I’m generally changing and adding to the slides (or notes if I am going without slides) right up the point where I arrive on stage. I always emphasis that Cynefin was designed as a conflict resolution framework as much as for understanding decision making – all aspects of sense-making. The former are focused on compliance the latter on checking if its time to change.

Templates for good

Clark Quinn

Merriam-Webster defines it as “a gauge, pattern, or mold used as a guide to the form of a piece being made” In terms of software and business, templates are forms with some of the elements already completed. With them, it’s easier to do design. How does that change for learning? For instance, we can ask that the objective include elements of measurable evaluation, and carry that forward through the final practice design.

from enlightenment to entanglement

Harold Jarche

To change our systems, first we have to understand them, and where they came from. Our existing education and training systems are not designed for this task. We have to figure this out together, outside the ‘system’ About 500 years ago a new communications technology came along and changed the face of Europe — print. We may discern some patterns from the past but our current challenges — as we shift to an electric-digital-networked age — are unique.

Narrative: paying the piper

Dave Snowden

Those reflections themselves arise from conversation is smaller groups and the whole thing is designed to keep ideas open for as long as possible: avoiding premature convergence. It is a complex facilitation technique and as such is designed to facilitate emergence rather than engineer an outcome. There are many ways to achieve change but its all about seeing what you can change, or rather where change is acceptable and in what form.

The impacts of Data Science, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence on Learning and Development

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

These areas help is in upskilling, instructional design, instructon, coaching, more. There are three main types of machine learning: supervised learning, where you provide lables or tags with the data, and the computer learns to identify unlabled data unsupervised learning, where we don't have lables in the data we provide, where the machine tries to find patterns, clusters or similarities in the data, which it then uses to classify everything else reinforcement learning - eg.

Artificial Intelligence for Good: A Few Good Articles To Read #AI4Good

Beth Kanter

The author, Eirini Maliaraki, an interaction designer, argues for more precise definition of the emerging field “AI for Good,” with a focus on outcomes, not the technology. I shared a few more examples of AI-driven fundraising here ) 3) Campaign Content: Examples of nonprofits using Quilt.AI , which takes every organization’s digital imprint and lets a nonprofit to better understand data patterns in large amount of data to predict changes in human behavior.

AI for Nonprofits and Social Good: Link Roundup

Beth Kanter

AI can do this faster than humans to identify patterns. These insights can be used to solve social change problems. The platform is described as a “Slack-first” HR platform designed to help managers proactively combat abuse by fostering collaboration, teamwork, and inclusion. Allison Fine and I have been actively researching and writing about AI for Social Good and Nonprofits.

learning in complexity and chaos

Harold Jarche

Most of our current work structures are designed to address complicated situations, such as constructing a building, launching a campaign, or designing a piece of equipment. Whenever people are involved, within a global context of climate change, the situation is likely complex. Today one must cease to be a passive spectator but an actor in this fast-changing world.”.

The Social Network Is the Computer

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

This ecosystem has been designed to stimulate and manipulate the human psyche, “to draw us in and persuade us to change how we shop, vote, and exercise, and even who we love.” and how does it change our behavior?

Culture 6 of 7: Adjustments

Dave Snowden

In any art work the final adjustments mean that we are nearing completion, in cultural change I want to argue, it is the sign that the process is only just starting. An initiative is designed to start a journey rather than complete a goal. In an ideal world managing culture would be a constantly evolving process; multiple small micro-changes with a feedback loop in near real time that allows the process to be navigated. Its a structure that we can’t change but we can use.

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?

Ethical Codes and Learning Analytics

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

And, as he notes, ““There is one and only one social responsibility of business – to use it[s]resources and engage in activities designed to increase its profits so long as it stays within the rules of the game, which is to say, engages in open and free competition.” 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. 2019).

ut I think it's fair to say that most every response expects the role of training to either diminish or to change significantly in the next 10 years. Supporting Concept Workers In The Future of the Training Department by Harold Jarche and Jay Cross, they discuss how work models are changing. This is very similar to what I discuss around Concept Workers and Work Literacy but they attack the change based on complexity – which is truly why concept workers are so important.
