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.

What Universities Must Learn About Social Networks

What Universities Must Learning About Social Networks. Increasingly, businesses are looking to more social approaches to employee learning and development. THE ISSUE IS NOT whether you are going to become a socially networked university but how soon. Businesses are being transformed into social businesses. Social business is the flavor of the day in the C-suites of the Fortune 500. Networks are the glue that connects us.

What's Interesting

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Today this translates into an interest in social networks, copyright issues, truth (and ethics) in media, and the practical matter of helping communities communicate with each other and externally. Most recently this includes my newsletter software, an always-under-construction personal learning environment (PLE) called gRSShopper, and a small toy blockchain module for Perl. I prefer to work openly (not in secret) and for the public good

You can access your account data by clicking on Myself -> Social Network -> Options, as follows: Figure 137 - Social Network Options Button This displays a screen with all your account information. Figure 140 - The 'Authorize' button on the Swagger sample API Interface page In Perl I decided to create a Perl Module that would handle all the Badgr API tasks. For gRSShopper I found a way to encode images into Base64 using a Perl module.

I also needed to prove that the web could be used for online learning, so I took a guide I had created for my Grande Prairie students, Stephen's Guide to the Logical Fallacies , and published it on my website, openly licensed, free for all to use (the license was based on similar open licensing I had seen in the MUD community). But it was brilliantly engineered; I learned tons by digging through the source, learning how all the Javascript worked, and adapting it for my own purposes.

A grain of sand: Innovation diffusion

I referenced Cognitive Edge's background in weak signal detection (that grain of sand) in counter terrorism, the philosophy of cognitive complexity, taking a natural science approach to social systems and our development of SenseMaker® (described by one Home Office anthropologist as the first example of a system for distributed ethnography). Here apprentice models, social networks are more effective at diffusion and development of ideas.

E-Learning Generations

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

( version française ) In recent years I have been working on two major concepts:first, the connectivist theory of online learning, which views learning as anetwork process; and second, the massive open online course, or MOOC, which isan instantiation of that process. During the development of this second generation we saw theconsolidation of computer-based software and content, and the commercializationof the network itself. is social software.

Sun Developer Network, 2008)This concept, which in education became the idea of the ‘learning object’, emerged as a result of the idea that reusable software objects could be created.

A day with Dave Snowden

Jay Cross

A system is any network that has coherence. Magnet are modulators. Dave dislikes Open Space because the law of two feet ostracizes dissenters. Social network stimulation. Sensemaker software is open source – different meaning of complexity. Dave Snowden is a compelling storyteller, mad genius, and irascible Welshman who has pioneered the mash-up of complexity theory and management practice.

And, as he notes, ““There is one and only one social responsibility of business – to use it[s]resources and engage in activities designed to increase its profits so long as it stays within the rules of the game, which is to say, engages in open and free competition.” Modern analytics is based mostly in machine learning and neural networks, and these in turn provide algorithms for pattern recognition, regression, and clustering. Another source of error is misinterpretation.
