Formalizing stories about community leadership

Learning Alliances

I’m working with several meta-communities: communities of practice made up of people who are themselves supporting communities. Jerome Bruner, Making Stories; Law, Literature, Life (New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2002) [link]. Of course CPsquare is very much my “main meta-community&# but I’m a bit surprised at how these meta-communities are turning up. (I

Digital Habitats for project teams

Digital Habitats

When a project begets a community it’s often because the sense of accomplishment that people have sparks that sense of recognition of each other’s expertise and people feel that they need to stay connected to each other.

MirandaNet: Social Networking trivial or mind expanding?

My hope is that if more people learn how to use this facility we will begin to have democratic participation. 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). The exchange of information is two way, as it flows from the wealthy to the less well resourced and back again (Resta, 2002, p. 2002). 2002).

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. It was well-received by the relatively few people then focused on the issue … but didn’t get a lot of attention in the sector despite a mini-campaign.

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.

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.
