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.

Formal learning & social networking

Clark Quinn

is about informal learning, but the organization was moving to using social networking tools to scaffold their move from face-to-face to more online learning. So I was asked to talk about social networking and formal learning. tools (their environment in particular had blogs, feeds, wikis, discussion boards, portals, and profiles), and to talk about some case studies of successes. Each of these can be accomplished well through social networking tools.

Wikis and Learning – 60 Resources

Yesterday evening, my time, I attended a rather interesting webcast with Sandy Carter , IBM’s Worldwide Sales Vice President, IBM Social Business, Collaboration, and Lotus Sales and Evangelism, along with Jeremiah Owyang , Industry Analyst at Altimeter Group , on the topic of Why Be Social? Will Social Software follow the same trend? Will social networking tools become our next Pandora’s Box, just like email is today for most of us?

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.

The Future IMS Learning Design

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The Future IMS Learning Design What is the future of learning design? Joel Greenberg My own personal view: maybe the world is moving on, and maybe the idea of 'design' is a bit old fashioned. I have been looking at the world of social networking, and my mind is moving away from the model where we are the experts and package the knowledge and sequence it. The idea is to lead academics to a lightweight narrative, and having them design around it.

Enterprise knowledge sharing requires trusted relationships

Harold Jarche

As the economy gets more networked, open organizations are becoming a necessity. Businesses are increasingly dependent on complex social interactions. Internally, work teams that need to share complex knowledge require tighter social bonds. But the major barrier to encouraging informal social relationships at work often comes down to a question of control. Blogs and wikis, and later tools like Twitter, were created to “scratch the itch” of new organizational models.

Learning as Artifact Creation

George Siemens

Today, information is networked and digital. In 2004, I tried to respond to the network/digitization alpha trend by describing the new actions and experiences that were available to learners: Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age. Connectivism was presented as a theory that described how learning happened in networks, complex ambiguous information spaces, digital environments, and the increased opportunities of the participative web.

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.

Ensuring knowledge flow through narration

Harold Jarche

As with knowledge artisans , many learners now own their knowledge-sharing networks. Today, content capture and creation tools let people tell their own stories and weave these together to share in their networks. What started as forums and wikis quickly evolved into more robust networks and communities. Since few people work in the same room as all their co-workers, they rely on online networks to offer them a common space to find and offer work narration.

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.

Harold Jarche

Are knowledge workers the new artisans of the network era? Today, knowledge artisans of the network era are using the latest information and social tools in an interconnected economy. Look at a web start-up company and you will see it is filled with knowledge artisans, using their own tools and connecting to outside social networks to get work done. They can be programmers, designers, writers, or any other field requiring complex skills and creativity.
