Virtual and real stereotypes

Joitske Hulsebosch

I decided to turn myself into a man (wasn't very hard) because some people who meet me online without seeing my picture, think I'm a man (the name Joitske is a strange name anyhow even in the Netherlands, could go for a man and woman).

Technology: gathering on 'online kennisdelen' organised by oneworld

Joitske Hulsebosch

As you can see in the second picture, only few people raised their hands when asked whether they could explain terms like 'w eb2.0' Because of the longer attachment to one domain and with a (growing) group, we are able create more exchanges which build on each other

Patience as a new cultural dimension?

Joitske Hulsebosch

On the collectivist side, we find societies in which people from birth onwards are integrated into strong, cohesive in-groups, often extended families (with uncles, aunts and grandparents) which continue protecting them in exchange for unquestioning loyalty.

Green Chameleon » Blog-Tag - An Internet Party Game

Green Chameleon

As Jeff puts it, people know each other through the blogosphere, but do they really know each other? So the game is the old dinner party game of sharing five things about yourself that your blogomates might not know – and then you tag five other people to be it! I played the part of a scone-addicted English teacher… for free, in exchange for credits to the British Council. And here are the five people I’d like to know more about: 1.

He can also be disturbed seeing how other people do many things at the same time, wondering if they are paying sufficient attention. Liza feels her talents are not sufficiently exploited because the older managers don't understand the different way of working of younger people.

Moderately well worked the government involvement, regional exchanges and linkages to the World Bank operations. Face-to-face interaction was most successful in facilitating interactions at a national level, the videoconferencing inspired less exchange and the e-mail list saw only modest use.

This document gives a summary of the contributions made 22-28 September 2006. And even in smaller markets, such as Australia, symbiotic relationships between commercial providers and local professional groups have sprung up, where thought leaders are loaned to local groups in exchange for promotion of the commercial mainstream events. The original Chatauqua is still going strong and continues to give ordinary people easy access to a full spectrum of thought leaders.

Practical examples: a one-year old community of practice

Joitske Hulsebosch

The e-collaboration community of practice, a group of people working for development organisations in the Netherlands (which started a blog on its domain here) is almost one year old and the 'facilitators' decided to ask an external person, John Smith , to look back and help to design the next steps. I was a little hesitant to ask people to talk about the group at a meta-level (talking more about the process of group development, rather than about a content topic).

Practical examples: Interview with Bill Williams on ILO/CIARIS experiences in lusophone Africa

The point of creating a community of practice from a course situation is to achieve a situation where the learning is going on and there are people who have a tremendous amount of experience and knowledge, which can be useful to people working on similar problems in similar languages.

Practical example: Experiences with communities of practice in India

Joitske Hulsebosch

A wide variety of groups and networks were studied, like a farmers group producing a journal, an exchange programme, a listserv and email discussion group, and information sharing group on livelihoods and gender equity and a group championing women's rights. The example which struck me was the example of the MBTI synergy group: The MBTI Synergy Group was a spontaneous creation of all the people who attended the MBTI accreditation course in April, 2004.

Communities of practice: Naava's example of the role of a facilitator

Joitske Hulsebosch

I liked the story as it demonstrates the role of a CoP facilitator (or weaver as she call it) in connecting people and stimulating private exchanges within the CoP, not only public- for all- meetings or discussions. After lunch, I introduced them and they exchanged contact information. Naava Frank posted a comment on lurkers and I asked her if I could repost it. thanks!).

Technology: RSS, tagging and back to work!

Joitske Hulsebosch

What's very clear is that it's really hard to explain/imagine/dream up for people who have not experienced social bookmarking and/or RSS at work. What happened (and I think this happens to lots of people) was that I subscribed to a discussion list in a crazy mood or because it is recommended by a colleague and ended up going through all these mails in your inbox as a 'to do list', which kills my interest, fun and creativity.

Technology: trust in virtual teams

Joitske Hulsebosch

He states people will have a hard time trusting eachother unless they've met. And further in the article: "it is easier to be suspicious of people when they are out of the line of sight. " is a change of paradigm- it changes trust and the need to meet face-to-face before you can trust someone (even though it might be true for the past and for lots of people, it is not a general truth).

The next interview took place at June 27, 2006 with Camillo Villa from HIVOS. At the moment people use e-mail to do that, but that means that documents are being sent, commented on and returned. The idea behind D-groups was to create a low-bandwidth working space, where people could share knowledge and work together. The most that we can see is the number of messages sent, but the knowledge exchanged and created within the group remains inside the group.

Welcome

I collaborate, e-collaborate, we collaborate

E-collaboration is then about working together, sharing knowledge, learning and communicating over the internet and providing or make use of facilitations to find information or people. In reality people encounter challenges. Boundaries have to be crossed constantly: working with different organisations in different parts of the world and with separate time zones, with people from different cultures, who speak different languages and have unequal access to technologies.

Therefore it is not possible to collate them all together although we can use these stories to highlight the questions people encounter, and the stimulation and starting of the process. What will be made clear there are the problems people sought solutions for or what they wanted to achieve by using e-tools. How did people start looking for the right tool, how did they approach and convince others and how are they planning for the future?
