Share Best Practices - Patterns

Tony Karrer

So, the first thing I did was to quickly search my blog for any mention of "best practice" – whew, I don't use the term much. Dodged that bullet. :) Patterns and Knowledge Work I understand the concern that when you share best practices, you may come out with very different results.

[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.

Big Data Takes Center Stage

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In 2000, only one-quarter of the world’s stored information was digital and therefore subject to search and analysis. The first is what they call n=all, that is, collect and use lots of data rather than settling for small samples, as statisticians have done until now. “The

Creating More Intelligent Organizations

In the second study, they formed 152 groups ranging from two to five members to try to replicate the findings of the first study with groups of different sizes, using a broader sample of tasks. I recently read a fascinating online conversation on Collective Intelligence with Tom Malone.

Thinking in Models: for Design, for Learning… A large part of this talk is about that change. When you look at that, basically it''s like they have this model or design in their head of how we could rebuild the university system, wipe it all out, start over, and we''ll have a new model.

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.

This can inform tag-based search - sometimes you learn the tag, sometimes you learn the gist (this is called the gist-trace). The recommended learnss for each person all the tag assocciations they have done in the past, and then tries to match this pattern to all the different examples. As designers we can do better, online environments that are as engaging as actual games, but embedded in real science.

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. To learn is to instantiate patterns of connectivity in the brain. Rather, it is the development of a pattern of connectivity in the brain. These patterns of connectivity correspond to the skills, abilities, intuitions and habits that we develop over time.

seeing the patterns of those posts then composing a response. 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. Second, I think that multi-membership, head-and-heart, and network sensibilities are more important than pattern recognition scores. How much pattern sensing is learned and how much is part of an individual’s make up?

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

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

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.
