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.

Social Networking: The Benefits Outweigh the Constraints

Nigel Paine

If you sit in the average conference room with, say 40, executives from both the public and private sector and enthuse them about the power, speed and, indeed, empowerment of social networking, you have all the heads nodding in seconds. There are few people out there who think this is all a flash in the pan, and fewer still who fail to recognise the real shifts in communication patterns which are occurring. Social networking slots neatly into this model.

Engaging Knowledge Artisans

Harold Jarche

Every organization today is trying to address the changing nature of work, driven by rapid technological change, and made more complex by global changes in economics, politics, and resources. Pattern sensing becomes all important. Practices like network weaving have to become natural.

Harold Jarche

Building a network of colleagues is helpful in this regard. Good curators are valued members of knowledge networks. Sharing includes exchanging resources, ideas, and experiences with our networks as well as collaborating with our colleagues.

OMG, its culture change time

Dave Snowden

Such cultures are tacit in nature: networked, tribal and fluid. Millington does pick up on this with a reference to Schein's third layer of culture: tacit assumptions, or the deeply entrenched patterns of thought and perception that drive behaviour.
