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.

The social Web before social networks: a report from 2003

David Weinberger

The Web was social before it had social networking software. It just hadn’t yet evolved a pervasive layer of software specifically designed to help us be social. a new class of application, unsurprisingly called “social software.” But what sort of sociality were we looking for? The two talks, especially Clay’s, serve as reminders of what the Internet looked like before social networks. We’re getting RSS.

My 25 Years of Ed Tech

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

My contributions included this effort in learning design. s easy to forget the importance of the early instant messaging services, because they played such a significant role in developing a lot of the thinking that would eventually result on social networks and more. By 1993 I had written The Network Phenomenon , which is essentially a post-constructivist post-cognitivist theory of knowledge. 1998 – Wikis Also: CMSs, RSS I didn't bother with Wikis.

Open Education, MOOCs, and Opportunities

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

These were designed originally by organizations such as the Open University, in Britain, and Canada''s Athabasca University. Technological systems based on these designs were first developed by the aviation industry, in the form of the AICC specification (Aviation Industry Computer Based Training (CBT) Committee). Content Syndication Networks The concept of content syndication originates with the newspaper industry. which is essentiallythe cMOOC design).

Replacing Email?

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

My Facebook friends, meanwhile, which peaked at 3000 or so, have *dropped* to 1800 - many people don't want the newsletter in their social networking. RSS as well remains strong, with something like 5000 (or it could be 10,000 - I don't have a good count, just Google Reader stats). There may be a lot of traffic in social networks and instant messaging, but it's personal traffic, replacing what used to be accomplished with a quick phone call.

A new way to work

Harold Jarche

A network economy can retrieve artisans and guilds, distributing power to those who do the work, and reconnecting thinkers and doers. Corporations, as we know them, are obsolete for a network economy. Knowledge artisans not only design the work but they can do the work. To ensure that they stay current, they become members of various Guilds, known today as communities of practice or knowledge networks. Networks are not markets.

Social Media: An Interview

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I was asked to contribute my responses to interview questions on social media for a new journal called The Future of Learning and of course I was happy to send some thoughts along. When did you start getting interested in the potential of social media in education and why? It all depends on what you call social media. Most of what we would call the 'social' in social media wasn't there - there weren't any friend lists, zero cat pictures, and no tweets.

Personal Learning MOOC

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

We will examine how connectivist MOOCs employ social networks to facilitate and encourage multiple perspectives to emerge around a single subject or area of enquiry. He is a leading voice in online and networked learning. Downes is perhaps best known for his daily newsletter, OLDaily, which is distributed by web, email, and RSS to thousands of subscribers around the world.

Analysis and Support of MOOCs

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

My contributions to the Network Learning 'Hot Seat' addressing the question, "How do we analyse and support the networked interactions of thousands of people learning together?" With respect to the analysis of the networked interactions, it's not clear to me that we should even be doing this, at least, not in the sense suggested by the question. I'm sympathetic with his view, but his work has no influence on the development and design of either connectivism nor the MOOC.

I met a lot of people who were just as qualified as I was to attend post-secondary education but who were not able to for social and economic reasons. In the 1990s, working at Assiniboine Community College, I drove around in a van filled with a computer network to remote communities and First Nation reserves in Manitoba introducing them to what the internet could do. The other part of that explanation addresses networks and connectivism directly.

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.

E-Learning Generations
