How I use social media | Full Circle Associates

Nancy White

I figured it would be good to exercise my memory a bit and unearth some of the key stories that led me to to my social media use today, and perhaps surface some of my patterns. Social media is a great place to fail. Social media enables this.

The Paucity of Intelligent Design

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Re: Why Intelligent Design Is Going to Win This must be comedy Friday at Tech Central Station. Sure, the United States may well turn to a religion-dominated policy and social agenda; it has happened before. intelligent design people! intelligent design people! The point is, intelligent design is a religion-driven anti-intellectual position adhered to (and directed toward) mostly uneducated people, and it is Not Science. Intelligent design and all, you know?

Social Media Strategy Planning & Measurement – What’s Working? With social media, however, strategy is a compass, not a map, because it is a fast changing territory. Social media, however, is like a river you swim in.

change the system, not the leader

Harold Jarche

It puts too much power in the hands of individuals and blocks human networks from realizing their potential. Depending on one person to always be the leader will only dumb-down the entire network. In the network era, leadership is helping the network make better decisions.

perspectives on new work – synopsis

Harold Jarche

The Internet-based firm sees work and cognitive capability as networked communication. Creative learning is the fundamental process of socialization and being human. Work will be described as complex patterns of communicative interaction between interdependent individuals.

Alone Together - An Important New Book by Sherry Turkle

John Hagel

Our networked life allows us to hide from each other, even as we are tethered to each other.   As she relates: I tell two stories in Alone Together : today’s story of the network, with its promise to give us more control over human relationships, and tomorrow’s story of sociable robots, which promise relationships where we will be in control, even if that means not being in relationships at all. Sherry Turkle has been on a journey.

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!

E-Learning Generations

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Another key idea was the design of the gaming space itself.Early computer games (and many early arcade games) were designed likeprogrammed learning: they were like a flow chart, guiding you through a seriesof choices to a predetermined conclusion. During the development of this second generation we saw theconsolidation of computer-based software and content, and the commercializationof the network itself. You can begin to see a pattern developing here.

Consciousness

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It is not the result of some design, nor is it the result of some goal of objective. But "even the mental and cultural worlds were, it turns out, emergent results of such competences rather than consciously designing or designed realities."

Skills for Learning Professionals Part 3 | Full Circle Associates

Nancy White

These three directly address the follow up question Tony left on Part 1 seeking more on what learning professionals need to know how to do to leverage the learning opportunities found in communities and networks. We might also say network weaving may need to be a bit more ego-less.

Organizations aren’t thinking about the ‘networked individual’ – the networking choices and patterns of individual Internet users. They’re still focused on their own organizational information systems and traditional institutional networks. -- William H.

Reflecting on the first half of 2009

Jay Cross

MacWorld : learning infrastructure and social network infrastructure are converging. Agile Instructional Design. Building a learning ecology is a different exercise than building a training program. Hence, I am exploring how well the principles of agile programming might be incorporated into a new framework for instructional design. Learning and social networks and customer communications and partner relations and marketing and sales aren’t islands.

MOOC - The Resurgence of Community in Online Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

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.

I Know It When I See It

Andy McAfee

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 Enterprise 2.0 Recovery Plan

Andy McAfee

It’s logical and natural to think that all the good new product ideas come out of the design department and R&D labs, that the folk in the IT department are the best ones to help you with your computer problem, and that the engineers are the only ones who can figure out why the doors start rattling after 5,000 miles on the road. Weak-tie networks are great places to look for novel information and introductions to valuable people.

Notes from Information Technology Based Higher Education and Training ITHET 2013, Antalya

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

leads to questions about designing learning for the future - reference to the old ''cranking ifo into students'' heads diagram - claims about the future: - work at own time, place, etc - computers will revolutionize learning - along came MOOCs - investment in MOOCs: $100M - will take time but will have a major impact - why things will change.

Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: Hamel on Management Innovation

John Hagel

Hamel is certainly right as a purely logical exercise. In some cases, like certain entrepreneurial companies in China, it is built upon a breakthrough management innovation – global process network management. Innovations in design, engineering, technology and governance.

Presentation to UNCTAD's Advisory Group on "Developing skills, knowledge and capacities through innovation: E-Learning, M-Learning, cloud-Learning"

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Only after this, do we move into the idea, of learning design and pedagogy, which is drawn primarily from the field of distance learning, where courses are rounded up as packages, or what we might call program texts, designed to lead the student through a course of instruction. You begin to think in course packages complete with content, learning design, everything you need for an online course. It is, in many ways, an unbundling of this traditional course design.

Connectivism and Transculturality

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Communities as Networks As you can see we are broadcasting live to a worldwide audience of 27 people. Look at this network up here on the screen. This is a network of western European languages. So culture and discipline and a wide variety of social and community phenomena like that are based not in some sort of essential nature of being, but rather based in connections with other entities of a similar type. It's a big communications network.

Please, Hamel, Don't Hurt 'Em

Andy McAfee

In assembling this short list, I haven’t tried to catalog every salient feature of the Web’s social milieu, only those that are most at odds with the legacy practices found in large companies.&# They blog, tweet, join social networks, and use 2.0 It's about patterns, habits, customs, and people fearing change. This is essentially livable-with in a networked environment, but lacking in sophistication.

The Reality of Virtual Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Laughter] Here’s another exercise and this is in a particularly relevant exercise for this organization. To learn, as the slide says here, is to instantiate patterns of connectivity. So what you’re doing is like exercising. On the new picture knowing now is much more about patterns. We can see how this works from the perspective of a network. This is a network. It’s a very stylized network. They’re like patterns of connectivity.

Education, Technology and Myth

I don't question if e-learning will reach a tipping point," one author confesses, "but what I [find] myself pondering is when e-learning will reach a tipping point and become a social epidemic."
