Introduction to Social Networking

Harold Jarche

Introduction to Social Networking. Online social networks facilitate connections between people based on shared interests, values, membership in particular groups (i.e., They make it easier for people to find and communicate with individuals who are in their networks using the Web as the interface. Note you can learn more about the concept of ego-centric vs object-centric networks here ). It is also the network of choice for most professionals.

Learning through social networks

Harold Jarche

Training – an external intervention, designed only to address a lack of skills and/or knowledge. Education – a process with its main aims of socialization, a search for truth and/or the realisation of individual potential. Learning – an individual activity, though often within a social context, of making sense of our experiences. All value is created by teams and networks. Furthermore, learning may be generated in teams but this type of knowledge comes and goes.

Why your Enterprise Social Network is your most valuable social learning platform

Jane Hart

In the workplace, social learning comes through social collaboration. Social learning is a natural everyday phenomenon; simply put, we learn from our colleagues as we work with them. It is not just about managing the interaction but also being part of the social interaction.

SCoPE: Seminars: Managing Multimembership in Social Networks: Oct 27-Nov 9, 2008 How do you track and keep up with blog conversations? How do you manage your time as you engage in social networks? Many of us confess to fumbling along and we engage in multiple networks.

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.

Leadership for the Network Era

Harold Jarche

The TIMN [Tribes + Institutions + Markets + Networks] model shows how society grew from a collection of tribes, added institutions, and later developed markets. The network era began with the advent of electric communications, though it is by no means completely established.

How large professional service firms are shifting to networked services and open innovation

Ross Dawson

During the evening I had a very interesting conversation with one of the regional directors about how professional service firms are tapping external networks. For over a decade I have written and spoken about the rise of networked professional services, looking at the trend for independent professionals to collaborate in order to compete with large firms. Another is that large firms need to shift both culture and processes to become better at external networks.

[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.

Beyond Assessment ? Recognizing Achievement in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It''s interesting to think of culture in this perspective, as a type of language ?? It''s the basis for instructional design. You start with what you want them to learn, design an experience, cause them to learn it, build in some checks, and see that this has all happened in the end. ALT, the Association for Learning Technology, in Britain, is designing and creating badges as part of its ocTEL MOOC. The Achievement Standards Network is offering “open access to machine?readable

The Personal Network Effect

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The presumption in the design of most networks is that the value of the network increases with the number of nodes in the network. This is known as the Network Effect, a term that was coined by Robert Metcalfe , the founder of Ethernet.

Online Learning Course Design

Tony Karrer

Here are some thoughts on the course and the implications for design of similar kinds of online learning courses. Social Network as Course Platform Like social networks generally, Ning, unfortunately feels a bit scattered. I believe that many learning experiences designed to reside in a social network will inherently feel more scattered. There's a certain amount of learning curve to get into and going on the social platform.

Linkages matter

I think one of the reasons for this is the dominance of individuals, or more precisely social atomism in the anglo-saxon with its change the individual to change the system mantra. Working in complexity you soon get a sense of which ideas and concepts are causing (sic) people problems.

What Else can Work at Scale? and Techniques from Social Media

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

My contribution to the Networked Learning Conference 'Hot Seat' discussion. And I think that the answer is inherent in the nature of life: that we are autonomous, and interactive, so we create a distributed network of diverse activities, adapting to local conditions, and scaling naturally. Too dense a network and society fails. Too sparse a network and society fails. But where autonomy is extended to point where it disrupts the network, society fails.

With increasing complexity in most aspects of a network society, the way that we support organizational learning must change. This type of knowledge is nuanced and dependent on the context and situation. The essence of social learning in an organization is giving up control.
