How to Save the World

The Mushroom King Speaks Out: A rambling and fascinating interview with Paul Stamets , so famous for his knowledge of mushrooms and their mind-boggling uses they made him into a Star Trek character. Na Pali coast, Kaua’i — photo by me, taken two weeks ago.

Planning meetings? Can visuals help? Learn the basics at our 2018 Graphic Facilitation Workshop

Michelle Laurie

When looking at ways to think and write together, I surfed through the list serve of one of my favourite networks ( www.km4dev.org ) which is full of people who help bring knowledge beyond the individual.

Thinking of knowledge as a graph

Jenny Connected

Thinking of knowledge as a graph. This is the real challenge, i.e. moving from thinking and seeing knowledge in a linear way to thinking and seeing knowledge as a network/graph. The state of my knowledge can then be represented by the map.

Data, personal learning and learning analytics

Jenny Connected

The first shift allows us to think of content – and hence, our knowledge – as dynamic, as being updated and adapted in the light of changes and events. AI in Education Symposium – Introduction : Oct 24, 2018 Arti?cial This week’s topic for Stephen Downes’ E-Learning 3.0

Security, identity, voice, opportunity and agency on the distributed web

Jenny Connected

Learning therefore demands more than just the transmission or creation of knowledge – it requires the development of a capacity to define and instantiate each of these four elements for ourselves. The topic for the final week of the E-Learning 3.0 course is Agency.

Truth in a Post-Truth Age

Jenny Connected

If you think knowledge is expensive, try ignorance. Last week BBC Radio 4 broadcast a series of 15 minute podcasts over five days on the topic of Truth.

Consensus and community in the distributed web

Jenny Connected

As of August 2018, about 1000 pages are deleted from Wikipedia each day. This is a better fit with my knowledge of Etienne Wenger’s work on communities of practice. HolonIQ, Nov 30, 2018 Though dated last June this market map appeared in my inbox from Holon only today.

Improving Things for Knowledge and Information Workers

Michael Sampson - Currents

Knowledge and information workers don’t produce physical product. They are paid to use their brains – leveraging a domain of knowledge, ways of thinking, ways of approaching a problem, ways of creating solutions to problems, and so on.

Blog>> Method Knowledge

Green Chameleon

One of the knowledge types we take pains to highlight during a knowledge mapping exercise is method knowledge - the type of knowledge that a team builds up over time and that which makes them effective. It is knowledge that is seldom captured because people are either unaware of how valuable that knowledge is, or they do not see capturing it as a priority. To mitigate the risk, we embarked on a programme of documenting their method knowledge.

Cambridge Analytica vs Beacon – Facebook Australia Quantium

Laurel Papworth- Social Network Strategy

This would occur even when users were not connected to Facebook and would happen without the knowledge of the Facebook user. But it is very much like 2018. Ancient history? From Beacon to Cambridge Analytica, and Quantium.

Blog>> Knowledge Manager Lifespans Getting Longer?

Green Chameleon

In 2008 I ran a global survey on knowledge manager professional development and experience. It found that only 29% of knowledge managers had been in their role for more than 4 years, and only 25% were confident of moving on to another KM role. Nick Milton recently surveyed his KM contacts on LinkedIn and found that knowledge managers average lifespan seems to last about 6 years – which shows progress!

E-Learning 3.0 : some initial thoughts

Jenny Connected

In this model, knowledge is pattern recognition. This is the topic of a 10-week MOOC being offered by Stephen Downes, which started this week. For the course outline see – [link]. Stephen said somewhere that he was trying to create an elegant site for the course.

Understanding ‘Betweenness’ – seeing beyond the parts

Jenny Connected

For example, in his article ‘An Introduction to Connective Knowledge’ , Stephen Downes has written ‘Connective knowledge requires an interaction. More to the point, connective knowledge is knowledge of the connection.’.

2018 174

The Quantified, Qualified and Connected Self

Jenny Connected

We are the thread that runs through an otherwise disconnected set of data, and knowledge about ourselves, our associations, and our community will create an underlying fabric against which the value and relevance of everything else will be measured. It is data reflecting self-knowledge.

What is uniquely human?

Jenny Connected

As George said, that first MOOC, CCK08, The Connectivism and Connective Knowledge Course came at a time of mass explosion of technology, extensive innovation and the emergence of shared intelligence. In this first week of the E-Learning 3.0

Community network mapping: just get going!

Making CommunitySense

Social networks are about relationships, interactions, and connections between people and act as a resource for knowledge sharing and problem solving. Mapping a community network is an art as much as a science.

E-Learning 3.0 : Graph

Jenny Connected

In the last three paragraphs in this synopsis he writes: In connectivism we have explored the idea of thinking of knowledge as a graph, and of learning as the growth and manipulation of a graph. In your model, consider how knowledge about the changes in states in the graph might be used.

2018 161

There are No Things. There are patterns.

Jenny Connected

For me, this brings to mind Stephen Downes’ work on the theory of connectivism and an early article that he wrote on his blog in 2009, where he wrote: [Knowledge] is not an object (or objective), it is not discrete, it is not a causal agent.

2018 206

Creativity and experience on the distributed web

Jenny Connected

And so much of education continues to rely on indirect methods depending on knowledge transfer – reading, lectures, videos – rather than hands-on practice and knowledge creation. The topic for the penultimate week in the E-Learning 3.0

Digital badges and the purpose of education

Jenny Connected

At some level, which I am finding it difficult to identify (I am hoping that writing this post will help), I have not been able to align my own knowledge and understanding with this week’s course content.

‘Betweenness’ : a way of being in the world

Jenny Connected

Mariana Funes & Jenny Mackness (2018) When inclusion excludes: a counter narrative of open online education, Learning, Media and Technology, 43:2, 119 138, DOI: 10.1080/17439884.2018.1444638.

E-Learning 3.0 : Identity Graphs

Jenny Connected

In the event, it became obvious that not only is it possible to create the graph without referring to me, but also that doing this clearly demonstrates that knowledge of my identity is in the network rather than any specific node. We are now in the fourth week of this E-Learning 3.0

Badges are not sufficient

Jenny Connected

Connectivism and connective knowledge: Essays on meaning and learning networks. Further questions must also be: What is knowledge and how do we recognise it? Will a certificate or a badge accurately represent a learner’s knowledge? Knowledge as Recognition .

You can stimulate curiosity for self directed learning

Joitske Hulsebosch

The innovative thing is that the focus is on exchange and learning from each other and not on learning new knowledge, more "how do you do that in your class and what can I do better?" Epistemic curiosity is a desire for knowledge and knowing, the driving force behind science.

My takeaways from OEB18: communities, AI and 3D-smarts and some very practical stuff

Joitske Hulsebosch

However there are also many other situations which call for learning, like interdisciplinary learning, learning from mistakes, driving innovation, making use of tacit knowledge, reflection. NB: Again something I missed: I heard few people talking and the important of domain knowledge.

E-Learning 3.0 Task 1 completed!

Jenny Connected

I did know this, but I don’t think it is necessarily common knowledge). In the E-learning 3.0 MOOC being run by Stephen Downes, we have been given two tasks to choose from for this week.

My experiences of the E-Learning 3.0 MOOC to date

Jenny Connected

I am grateful to Stephen for being so willing to openly share his knowledge, experience and expertise. The last time I had this feeling was in 2008, in CCK08 The Connectivism & Connective Knowledge Course (the first MOOC of this type). First a bit of background. The task for this week in the E-Learning 3.0 MOOC is related to the topic of Community in the distributed web.

Building “networks of communities” for a civic intelligence movement with impact

Making CommunitySense

It is exactly for identifying such (potential) linking pins that community network bridge-building processes like knowledge weaving and participatory community network mapping can be so powerful. We live in an age of confusion, stagnation, and crisis.

Living in an Algorithmic World

Jenny Connected

Two recent conferences, re:publica 18 in Berlin (May 2-4) and Theorising the Web 2018 in New York (April 27 th /28 th ) have featured the influence of algorithms on today’s world. Epistemological warfare – how doubt is fed into the system about how we produce knowledge.

Natural and non-natural information and smart niches

Taming the spaces

Particularly smartness is created by a loop – from self-organised individuals’ meanings, values and actions the data are aggregated and patterned using algorithms to form collective knowledge, and […]. The distinction between natural and non-natural information is highlighted by Laurence Kirmayer, that on my opinion helps to define the smartness concept in modern artificially enhanced systems.

How is learning organized in a self-managed organization?

Joitske Hulsebosch

Knowledge versus management hierarchy A self-managing organization has no hierarchy. This creates a knowledge hierarchy instead of a hierarchy based on function. Learning and knowledge creation in working groups If there are new challenges, a voluntary working group can be set up of professionals who will investigate, experiment and start building expertise. Anyone can make a decision, but must seek advice from anyone who has an interest or has relevant knowledge.

Human Existence is Difficult. Existentialism and Phenomenology.

Jenny Connected

She brings these philosophers, and many more, to life, sharing her knowledge of their strengths and weaknesses. What does it mean to live an authentic, fully human life? What distinguishes us from other animals? Are we truly set apart in some way? How should we think of ourselves? What are we?

Bookreviews Kevin Kelly: mind artificial intelligence, attention and quantified self

Joitske Hulsebosch

I have read these two books because I want to know how technology is going to influence my field of work: learning and knowledge. Ideas and knowledge travels with generations through language. My question was: what will be the influence of technology on learning and sharing knowledge?

Information Protection: The What

Michael Sampson - Currents

Some information doesn’t need to be protected at all, such as when it is common knowledge (2+2=4) or easily available (the name of the current leader of a country).

Even Microsoft Struggles With It

Michael Sampson - Currents

And just because you are a global admin of a tenant does not equate with you having the right business knowledge to be able to judge between valid and invalid requests by Microsoft engineers during support incidents.
