[liveblog] Judith Donath on designing for sociality (“Social Machines”)

David Weinberger

Judith Donath is giving a book talk to launch The Social Machine. I read it this weekend and it is a rich work that explores the ways in which good design can improve our online sociality. Judith begins by saying that the theme of the book is the importance of online social interaction and designing for it. Our interfaces may look sophisticated but they’re primitive when it comes to enabling social interaction. It slowed down a lot of social design.

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. I have been looking at the world of social networking, and my mind is moving away from the model where we are the experts and package the knowledge and sequence it. The idea is to lead academics to a lightweight narrative, and having them design around it.

Corporate Learning Trends- What Endures During Recessions

Kevin Wheeler

Most corporate learning remains traditional, formal, and follows patterns laid down decades ago by firms such as GE and IBM. Instructional designers and professional presenters spend thousands of hours designing training that should, in theory, transfer the needed skills to leaners as fast as possible. They also tap into their social networks such as Facebook or LinkedIn for advice, guidance and practical information. They don’t cost much.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

To me, the theory is and always has been ‘learning networks’. This is a play on words: it is in part a theory about using networks to support learning, and in part a theory about how networks learn. It led me to propose content syndication networks in education, and to embrace social media in education. I outlined my theory in the paper ‘Learning Networks’ in 2004 [link] and George wrote his important paper also in 2004.

Hence, a MOOC is to my mind, defined along the following four dimensions: [slide 3 – massive] Massive - here I mean not necessarily the success of the MOOC in attracting many people, but in the design elements that make educating many people possible. In practice, what this means is a system designed so that bottlenecks are not created in any of the four attributes: modeling, demonstration, practice, and reflection. but also to be involved in the design of these.
