Collective intelligence patterns

I had the good fortune to get to meet Tom Malone way back when he was working on what makes computer games fun (cited in my book ). 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 ).

Ensuring knowledge flow through narration

Harold Jarche

As with knowledge artisans , many learners now own their knowledge-sharing networks. Today, content capture and creation tools let people tell their own stories and weave these together to share in their networks. Narration of work in social networks is flow.

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.

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.

organizing for the network era

Harold Jarche

The network era, with digital electric communications, changes this. Organizations today should be designed more like the internet ( small pieces, loosely joined ) and less like attractive prisons. The network era needs new structures, not modified versions of obsolete models.

E-Learning 3.0 Course Synopsis

Getting Ready Connectivism is based on the idea that knowledge is essentially the set of connections in a network, and that learning therefore is the process of creating and shaping those networks. The MOOC environment is designed to support both types of learning.

Knowledge and Recognition

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Using 'domains' allows us to recognize that *any* network, appropriately constituted, can be a learning and knowing system. I should have said 'entities' instead of 'people', where 'entities' refers to *any* set of entities in a connective network, not just people in a social network. And is the nature of this quality based in the physical properties of the network in which it is instantiated? We &recognize* a pattern in the other network.

Alone Together - An Important New Book by Sherry Turkle

John Hagel

Sherry neatly summarizes her core thesis on the first page of her book : Technology is seductive when what it offers meets our human vulnerabilities. Our networked life allows us to hide from each other, even as we are tethered to each other.   Here are just a few examples: "There but not there" (describing how we present ourselves in social situations). Sherry Turkle has been on a journey. Sherry joined the faculty of MIT 30 years ago.

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.
