Things are different in Alaska

Chris Corrigan

When i was here in 2002 I was up in Fairbanks, working largely with non-Native people doing peacemaking work in the school system. Anchorage is a different beast. What pieces of interesteing difference there are - the Namaste Shangri-la curry house for example, or Ray’s Vietnamese - lie hidden away in cold suburban plazas surrounded by divided roads, equipment dealerships and super stores. On the stepe of the Chugach Mountains north of Anchorage.

Formalizing stories about community leadership

Learning Alliances

How do we get into the nitty gritty of making comparisons between practices and experiments of different members — so that we dig in enough without getting too personal? Jerome Bruner, Making Stories; Law, Literature, Life (New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2002) [link]. I’m working with several meta-communities: communities of practice made up of people who are themselves supporting communities.

That got me thinking about the difference between a project team and a community as far as their digital habitat is concerned. But there are are also differences between the two. 2002) proposes these differences: Communities of Practice.

Is social housing (still) sleepwalking into a digital nightmare?

Social Reporter

Back in 2002 a group of us co-authored a book for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation about why social landlords, and their residents, should be concerned about joining the online world both for its benefits and because of the way public services were going digital. The initiative for the 2002 publication came from the Joseph Rowntree family of charities, who included both a social landlord and research foundation.

77% of learning = Informal

Joitske Hulsebosch

Nevertheless, I guess other people with different learning styles may get more out of it. At a company, Sara Lee, 20 employees were asked to list work-related learning activities (the exercise took place in 2002). Jay Cross states that 80% of learning is informal (in his book informal learning ). Well, that's a nice figure that I've seen resurface in many places and articles (I even like to quote it myself!). The 80% is backed-up by various sources.

The Riddle of Online Resonance (first installment)

Jenny Connected

Learning through connectivity is not a new idea; there is a long history of research into networked learning (Steeple & Jones, 2002; Goodyear et al., technologies and networked online learning for autonomous learning in an increasingly diverse environment (Downes, 2009) have led to many authors (Krebs (2002), Haythornthwaite (2002), Granovetter (1973, 1983), to name but a few) exploring how connections are made and developed in online environments.

MirandaNet: Social Networking trivial or mind expanding?

Community Capers

Some members act as e-facilitators or braiders who help to shape the argument, provide interim summaries and change the direction of the discussion (Preston, 2002; Preston & Holmes, 2002; Cuthell, 2005). In the second stage, braiders demonstrate meta-learning by constructing braided artefacts , which re-interpret the online debate in different styles for different audiences, e.g., newsletters for their local communities and reports for their school senior management team.

Business models for communities

Learning Alliances

The tubodudes in Wenger, McDermott and Snyder (2002), for example, had a business model that was just assumed as a norm in the book: the organization (Shell) provided all the resources and captured most of the value that the community produced.

NLC2016 Hotseat notes: Boundaries and Limits of Networked and Connected Learning

Jenny Connected

The point made by van Dijck and Sonia, which was significant for this discussion, is that there is a difference between connectedness and connectivity. Further risks of connectivity were thought to be risks from unknown default settings and terms of use and the risk of context collapse when people try to maintain connectedness in different online spaces. Barry Wellman (2002).

Notes on CUST119 Prudential: Thinking about Social Business Adoption? Don't Forget Enterprise Social Governance

Michael Sampson - Currents

PROFS in 1982, Notes from 1994 (60,000 users, 6400+ applications), Sametime in 1999, WebSphere Portal in 2002, and Connections in 2010 (about 25,000 users currently). The big difference between small and medium/large, is the addition of a community manager / content manager (rather than an intranet manager), and who does the moderation for comments. The local governance roles very clearly states the number of FTEs for the different roles. - It wasn't separate and different.
