Beyond Free ? Open Learning in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

They are however designed to be standalone talks as well so hopefully you will not be as unfulfilled after the talk as you might be afraid of being. What I want to examine in this talk, is not the problem MOOCs solve at the moment but the problem MOOCs were designed to solve.

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.

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.

Social network mapping is a skill that people need to learn.

What is thought to be is rarely real

Decisions are at the heart of human activity and mapping gives you the basis for lots of other understanding and intervention design. The map is transcribed into concept mapping software which optimises the representation and you end up with something that looks like an extended network model.
