Community network mapping: just get going!

Making CommunitySense

Don’t just look at those involved in doing the interaction, but also those participants who play a role in getting the interactions going, and interpreting their outputs and outcomes. Mapping a community network is an art as much as a science.

Creativity and experience on the distributed web

Jenny Connected

Just as multiple authors can edit Wikipedia articles or work on code in GitHub, participatory learning media enables learners to interact creatively without management or direction; the outcome is a consensus determined not by voting but by participation.

Four Things to Remember When "Planning"

Evolving Web

Is it the outcome something you are professionally satisfied with? In 1989 I received my degree in Urban Planning. I have studied how to make plans. In 2007 I received my certification to be part of the American Institute of Certified Planners. I have been recognized for making good plans.

Digital badges and the purpose of education

Jenny Connected

He is rightly pleased with this outcome. We have now come to the end of the sixth topic – Recognition – in Stephen Downes’ E-Learning 3.0 For me, this has been the least satisfying of the course topics so far.

Identity graphs as a ‘source of truth’

Jenny Connected

As Stephen says it is just one outcome of ‘myself’, through which I can recognise parts of myself and others can get glimpses of me, or if they know me can recognise a bit more. Week 4 on Identity in Stephen Downes’ E-Learning 3.0 MOOC has come to an end. It was another very interesting week.

E-Learning 3.0: The Human versus the Machine

Jenny Connected

The relationship between steps and an outcome are different in machines and living organisms. This post is a response to a challenge set, as a result of Task 2, by Frank Polster , a fellow course participant on Stephen Downes’ MOOC, E-Learning 3.0. Here is my challenge to all the E-Learning 3.0

Thinking of knowledge as a graph

Jenny Connected

The graph is at once the ­outcome of these interactions and the source of truth about those states of affairs. This is a response to the E-Learning 3.0 task for course participants created by Matthias Melcher. See [link].

What is Working? A Question of Discovery

Michael Sampson - Currents

The form of every activity or process can be analysed for current performance outcomes – the good, the bad, the challenging. The intent of an appreciative inquiry session is to focus on the current positive outcomes – to create a place for talking and discussing these.

How to Create Live Maps of Conference Connections

Partnering Resources

Have you ever been frustrated trying to find the person you needed at a busy conference? I recently use a new tool called sumApp to map conference connections in real time. sumApp’s founder, Christine Capra , interviewed me about the experience.

Community and organization intertwine

Learning Alliances

Organizations depend on a larger social or economic system, laws, money, and produce “outcomes”. I’ve been thinking about how community and organization are intertwined, especially when they are interdependent like they are in churches, synagogues, or mission-driven organizations like Amnesty International. The formation of a process team that’s focused on governance in Shambhala prompts me to write some of my thoughts down.

Information Theory and Uncertainty in Collaborative Teams

Michael Sampson - Currents

That something additional reduces the set of possible actions or outcomes. Information theory says that new information reduces uncertainty. That as more information is gathered, collected, captured, understood and refined, uncertainty is reduced to such an extent that certainty rules the day.

Towards the idea that complexity IS a theory of change

Chris Corrigan

In my experience, most of the time “theory of change” is really just another word for “strategic plan” in which an end point is specified, and steps are articulated backwards from that end point, with outcomes identified along the way.

Beat the Conference Blahs

Partnering Resources

This kind of format requires an outcome focused on connection. It’s Day Two of the convention and my body aches from sitting in one place for so long. I’ve heard experts tell me what to do and how to do it. I’ve seen ten PowerPoint templates and seven videos.

Goals Not Tools

Michael Sampson - Currents

If you focus on the goal (outcome), process improvements and tools are just implications.

Moving in a direction

Chris Corrigan

Many times when clients contact me they ask if I can help them come to consensus or alignment on their shared purpose or desired outcomes. I point out that in complex environments you don;t get to predict outcomes and you need to look for emergent practices and emergent solutions.

Skills for ‘Being’ in a Digital Age

Jenny Connected

The relationship between steps and an outcome are different in machines and living organisms. I have been puzzling over George Siemens ’ idea that learners need to develop ‘being skills’ if they are to cope with what it means to be human in a digital age. George discusses this with Neil Selwyn in an interview recorded for Monash University, Australia, Faculty of Education.

What do I need to understand before I act?

Chris Corrigan

Dynamical change comes from the world of physics, where small perturbations in a system result in massive changes and emergent outcomes. Things change in different ways.

Working with principles: some thoughts and an exercise

Chris Corrigan

” You can see that there are many things that could be generated from such a principle, and that perhaps an emergent outcome of such a principle might be “aversion to change.”

SharePoint Swoop – The Intranet Makeover Show

Michael Sampson - Currents

We caught it all on tape and are excited to share the learnings, best practices, and outcomes with you. Microsoft published Season 1 of SharePoint Swoop: The Intranet Makeover Show , where three well-known MVPs swoop into an organisation for three days and make some SharePoint and Office 365 magic happen. This is Microsoft’s description: SharePoint Swoop is not a typical reality show — this new, enterprise-focused, five-part web series from Microsoft is jam-packed with fun.

Dealing with resistance and difficulties

Mathemagenic

All these personality traits make learning to use written language particularly challenging: it’s a process with a lot of sequential steps that require automatisation and there is lack of meaningful practical applications for intermediate outcomes. This is something that was in drafts for a while and I hesitated about publishing it – it is personal and about difficult things.

Principles focused evaluation and racial equity

Chris Corrigan

In work that involves social change, poorly designed evaluation can narrow the work to a few isolated outcomes, and leave people with the impression that complex problems can only be addressed by linear and predictable planning practices.

Welcoming you to another Art of Hosting

Chris Corrigan

The Art of Hosting is predicated on the ability of hosts to hold space when we are uncertain of outcomes and dealing with emergence. Its that time of year when we are getting ready to invite people back to Bowen Island for our annual Art of Hosting.

The limits of certainty

Chris Corrigan

Asthmatic patients are classified as being at low risk for pneumonia when in fact their good outcomes on that measure are due to more intensive treatment. An interesting review essay by John Quiggan looks at a new book by Ellen Broad called Made by Humans: The Ai Condition.

Designing nesting thresholds

Chris Corrigan

It’s no exaggeration to say that this is almost a ritual experience, especially if the work you are doing involves creating intangible outcomes such as team building, good relations, conflict resolution or community. .

Struggling to pick up the trash in the face of weaponized evaluation

Chris Corrigan

What constantly surprises me in this work is how much accountability is placed on the plural sector for achieving outcomes around issues that they have so little role in creating. Most of my work lies with the organizations of what Henry Mintzberg calls “The plural sector.” ” These are the organizations tasked with picking up the work that governments and corporations refuse to do.
