Beyond Institutions Personal Learning in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The talk is called "Beyond Institutions Personal Learning in a Networked World" and I want to begin with a story that came across the wires recently and I thought was very appropriate for this venue. Thinking in Models: for Design, for Learning… A large part of this talk is about that change.

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

David Weinberger

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. She uses a Mark Twain story [" Was the World Made for Man? "] about an oyster’s point of view to remind us that online design isn’t really all that evolved. She came back from Japan trying to design a more useful display.

A Framework for Building AI Capabilities

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In the 1960s and 1970s, IT brought automation to a number of discrete business processes, including transaction processing, financial planning, engineering design, inventory management, payroll and personnel records. Just about every process can become digital aware, networked and smart.

The future of higher education and other imponderables

Took a sample. My phone tracks me and my social network. The more we know, the more we can design policies to keep power in place. And now hardware in computers is being designed to detect your every keystroke, leading some Americans to be wary of Chinese-made computers, but the US manufacturers are probably doing it better. But it measures down to the apartment level, which could be useful to the police trying to establish your personal patterns.

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.

An example is social tagging networks. The tags establish a network of connections among the resources and the tags, and among the resources themselves, and the users who read them. A socio-cognitive approach for studying and supporting interaction in the social web Tobias Ley We want to talk about how we can make massive social network data work for us. This leads to the exploration of the potential for modeling collaborative knwoledge through its networks structure.

Think anew, Act anew: Scenario Planning

Dave Snowden

Their reports of the sessions appeared to most of us, to confirm with the sample outcomes we had been shown rather than the spirited and diverse discussions we had engaged in. The diversity of participants in the process is also an issue and there are inherent dangers of pattern entrainment in workshop processes. Managing future uncertainties was fundamental to its design. A small number of people in a workshop are too easily subject to pattern entrainment and cognitive bias.

Czech Course Followup Questions

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

In an open communicative environment, where people depend on each other for ideas and inspiration, and where a mesh-like network of connections between these people develops, a form of organization emerges of its own accord. This phenomenon is well known - look up 'clustering' in the network literature. But in a network-based cooperative environment, the self-serving communicator is unable to obtain success.

A good community manager must be able to skip around, see patterns, scan the whole and then discern if and where to intervene in the system. Social network mapping and analysis skills. Today we are not often working in the confines of boundaried communities (see Post 2) so being able to see and understand the larger network is critical.

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.

How the Net Works

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The purpose of this paper is to describe how network learning works and to show how an understanding of network learning can inform the design and evaluation of online learning applications. Models The title of this paper does not refer to the Internet or Internet technologies specifically, but rather, at the use of networks and network theory generally in support of teaching and learning. To learn is to instantiate patterns of connectivity in the brain.

The 2010 IBM Global CEO Study

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Technology is a second major factor contributing to growing complexity: “… creating a world that is massively interconnected, with broad-based convergence of systems of all kinds, both man-made systems like supply chains or cities; and natural systems like weather patterns or natural disasters. Even more striking, during the economic crisis, Standouts’ revenue growth was six times higher than the rest of the sample. IBM recently released the 2010 Global CEO Study.

Education as Platform: The MOOC Experience and what we can do to make it better

What this talk is about - it's called "Education as Platform" - is the idea of exploring some of the experiences we've had with massive open online learning, and exploring some of the criticisms that we've experienced, some of the criticisms that we've seen, and trying to understand what elements of the design are working and what elements of the design are not working, and to use this understanding to try to advance our perspective on the way online learning is proceeding and should proceed.
