Collective intelligence patterns

Clark Quinn

I happened to meet him again at an event at IBM’s Almaden Research Center, and he was gracious enough to remember me and discuss his work (I challenged him about his ‘guilds’, since they still can’t get reasonable healthcare that businesses can get, don’t get me started ). This is a really nice systematic breakdown into patterns tied to real examples.

Mass Collaboration Workshop, Day Two

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Note that coordination here is not really needed, in contrast to other systemss of mass collaboration. Response: I don''t think it is completely different - when you read an article, I understand some, I don''t understand some, I try to use it - I would lable this a collaborative process. The recommended learnss for each person all the tag assocciations they have done in the past, and then tries to match this pattern to all the different examples.

Six habits for visual designers new to UX design.

Adaptive Path

I haven’t noticed much basic guidance for visual designers new to the UX world. Often these are positions designing for singular needs. Develop an eye for patterns. The more you look at wireframes and schematics, the more you can pinpoint patterns to describe. As your files grow, fast design iteration can spin them out of control, especially on large projects. Siloing yourself strictly to visual design is too isolating. Participate in research.

Complexity and Collaboration

Harold Jarche

Collaboration is the only chance for a solution.&# The Internet changes the patterns of connectivity and makes possible new enriching variety in interaction. Following the thinking presented by the most advanced scientific researchers, the important question to answer is not what should happen in the future, but what is happening now? Our focus should be on the communicative interaction creating the continuously developing pattern that is our life.

University research and industry projects

Harold Jarche

I attended the MonctonConnect business collaboration workshop yesterday. Vivendra Bhavsar presented on semantic matching and Weichang Du talked about his cloud computing research, especially the development of new design patterns for business. The event was sponsored by UNB and started with a presentation by Ken Kent on his joint project with IBM on the improvement of the Java Virtual Machine. They will be hiring 29 students and experienced developers in September.

How Autism can Influence Design: In conversation with Steve Silberman

Adaptive Path

The book, a sweeping history of autism in both science and society, contains some powerful implications about designing for human cognition and what “normal” really means. De-pathologizing is not just a question of being nice, either, because a consistent problem with autism research over the years is that neuroscientists will look at brains of people with autism and if they find any variations from what they’ve described as the norm, then those become deficits.

The Future IMS Learning Design

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The Future IMS Learning Design What is the future of learning design? Joel Greenberg My own personal view: maybe the world is moving on, and maybe the idea of 'design' is a bit old fashioned. Instead of trying to systematize, to sequence, a more appropriate approach is based around patterns and connections. The idea is to lead academics to a lightweight narrative, and having them design around it. So, what is the future of learning design?

Human Learning is Not About to Change Forever

Clark Quinn

I’m all for AR and VR, but saying that it puts learning in the hands of the students is a design issue, not a technology issue. People will learn collaboratively, no matter where they are. The possibilities in virtual worlds to collaboratively create in 3D I still think is potentially cool, but even as the technology limitations come down, the cognitive limitations remain. This seems like long-term research, not near-term plausibility.

Making a Movement: Narratives and Creation Spaces

John Hagel

There must be an intent or goal that provides the rationale for a movement to exist and there must be some degree of organization to help focus collaborative effort to achieve that intent or goal. Here’s the paradox – movements become more and more feasible given rapidly improving technology infrastructures that can help us to connect with each other and collaborate in rich ways across great distances. We begin to see collaboration curves in action.
