[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.

Even more striking, during the economic crisis, Standouts’ revenue growth was six times higher than the rest of the sample. The other side of that coin is that in a world full of social networks, blogs and other ways for people to express themselves, poor customer service may be the fastest way for a business to not just alienate its customers but do perhaps irreparable damage to its brand. IBM recently released the 2010 Global CEO Study.

New Technology Supporting Informal Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

This work, in turn, is suggesting and supporting the model of learning described in the first section, that of a course network supporting and informing an ever-shifting set of course episodes. The intent of such systems is to to facilitate the conversation and interaction around episodic learning events in a distributed environment, transforming them from elements in a linear flow-based design to free-floating objects in an environment.

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.

(My presentation will appear separately) Collective Knowledge in Social Tagging Environments Joachim Kimmerle, KMRC Even though it is hard to find good definitions of knowledge, most psychologists would agree that knowledge is an internal mental representation of external environments. An example is social tagging networks. So in our work we examined the potential of social tagging, and the impact of individual and collective knowledge on social tagging systems.

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.

Before we took the leap to design, the team felt that validating our proposed design was important, especially for a redesign that fundamentally overhauls a system’s structure. During user research for Changemakers, we found that Changemakers.com serves as an important social network for change-minded people and that users were interested in finding other people through two important lenses: location and issues.

We also have a more recent theory, constructivism, which has so many varieties I cannot count and won't try, but it's based essentially on the idea of social interaction, negotiation of meeting, finding a common ground, and a model of learning where learners construct their own model. Learning design was an attempt to emulate what was called programmed learning in the course packages, a way of leading the student through the materials one step at a time. They create this network.
