Mapping the social innovation ecosystems around public libraries together: the Czech connection(s)

Making CommunitySense

In the meantime, as you know if you have followed my work, the main focus of my fundamental R&D and practical consultancy has become the CommunitySensor methodology for participatory community network/collaboration mapping. Public libraries are cornerstones of civil society.

Tinkering with the system won’t help reinvent the purpose of education

Jenny Connected

I am recently retired, so a bit out of the loop, but from my perspective not a lot has changed between 2006 and 2019, in the sense that education has not been ‘reinvented’ – notably there hasn’t been, at government and policy-making level, a change in philosophy.

Meet Beau, a reflection chatbot

Joitske Hulsebosch

chatbot elearning reflection reflective practiceWorking in a small group to design a blended training I felt very annoyed. I had the feeling we were investing too much energy in defining the goals and was worried that the team was not going in the right direction. Usually I can put my finger on what we need to do, but this time I did not know exactly where it had gone wrong. I decided to use our own " Beau the reflection chatbot ".

Listening to and Learning from the ‘Other’

Jenny Connected

But what does this mean in practice? For a few months now I have been struggling to understand the idea of the ‘Other’, i.e. the capitalised Other. Why is it that so many people write about it and make such a big thing of it?

Using personas in design of online and blended learning

Joitske Hulsebosch

It can lead to a stereotyping of the practice. Why I believe in the power of personas The main design challenge is to make sure your design suits the needs and practices of the participants. Why would you work with personas when designing online or blended learning?

Teams, communities and networks: a case of our homeschooling group

Mathemagenic

We had a meeting in our homeschooling group yesterday to discuss what do and how do we actually want to do together after a period of “let’s see where things go by themselves” Over last few months I almost gave up on investing in our local homeschooling community.

Unschooling myself: traces through time

Mathemagenic

Like I forgot everything I knew from theory and practice under the weight of the responsibility of helping my own kids to learn. Something I find amazing every time I experience it – how unschooling as an educational choice for the kids turns to be a personal learning trajectory for us, as parents. Over the years it made me face my worst fears and imperfections, to see and accept things as they are and to learn from that point.

My personal year of learning about evaluation

Chris Corrigan

And it has equipped to confront people who abuse evaluation practice by using it to hide bald faced power grabs and subtle colonization. For a number of years I have been studying and learning about evaluation.

Archeology and legitimate peripheral participation

Mathemagenic

But it was a chance for follow-up for the excavation and an opportunity that provides a window onto practice of people doing real work, so I went. Observing somebody else doing that and practicing youself across different contexts and situations gets you much further. In October I went with the kids to join as volunteers for recent excavation in Katwijk. Yesterday there was a follow-up opportunity to join the team, this time to help with identification the findings.

“But what if our people dominate?”

Chris Corrigan

Furthermore they are founded on good dialogic principles, which you can point to and practice, such as, speak from your experience, listen to learn and be aware of your impact. Inviting a group into these practices helps them focus on each other as as potential experts. In my practice of chaordic design, I call this the Architecture of Implementation.

Open web, newcomers and community tools

Mathemagenic

Could you share which tools and practices do you use to grow trust, communicate and prepare for actions in small scale groups? Over last years I made many attempts to return to blogging, but couldn’t quite get the feeling of how it was before. That feeling of belonging. To the idea space. To the tribe of people connected by the intricate network of invisible stories and traces of digital artefacts.

Growing ideas and PKMastery workshop

Mathemagenic

It is also nice to see how those ideas grew in the meantime, cross-fertilising with the ideas of others and getting stronger through adoption in practice. Harold also did a lot of work to spread ideas of Personal Knowledge Management in practice, renaming it somewhere on the way into PKMastery. The workshop was interesting not only to meet Harold and to discuss the possibilities of working on PKM ideas and practices further.

The Value of Community Ecosystems

Online Community Strategy

My first taste of what might be possible with communities of practice was volunteering to be one of the first Fast Company Company of Friends organizers in Louisville KY in 2000. It seems we missed something along the way in developing best practices for communities.

Three musketeers, time and knowledge gaps

Mathemagenic

Then came reading practice for some, talking about expressions and words meaning of which kids didn’t know, testing how much their Russian their father actually understands and translating into Dutch for him. I wanted to share with the kids D’Artagnan and Three Musketeers movie of my childhood, an iconic musical of its time. So we set into it, spreading three series over three evenings. And then, as usual, it became watching a movie turned into a learning experience.

Capacity building and scaling a participatory approach

The politics of translation and the role of staff in Sudbury schools

Mathemagenic

So I asked about existing translations of terminology and got into a chat with Russian-speaking people doing a lot of translations of SDE materials and putting those ideas into practice locally in different forms. Looking at the terminology already in use and the future “usability” of the term in practice in Russian democratic schools. And once you start practicing the devil is in the details.

Parkours and pyjamas

Mathemagenic

During the party 11 kids were building three different obstacle courses, inside and outside, and then practicing going through them with their own bodies and remote controlled vehicles. Yesterday was Alexander’s parkour birthday party with his homeschooling friends. He was the one responsible for preparing it and this added a lot of extra tasks to the planning in the days before.

Helping kids learning to move around confidently

Mathemagenic

Next to a lot of practice and scaffolding what helps here is learning to use calendars, schedules and alarms and smart organisation of the gear needed. Reading maps and schemas comes naturally as part of our lifes, but once the kids start travelling more by themselves we pay more attention to practice. We discuss possible emergencies and what to do then and we practice together if needed. Being able to move around without an adult is part of growing up.

“But what about naysayers?”

Chris Corrigan

However, getting sued for a racist hiring practice is complicated. Perhaps I need to curate a series of posts called “The Whatabout Chronicles.” ” When I’m teaching participatory leadership or sharing complexity tools, folks who are wedded to traditional linear mind and tool sets often raise objections. “Complexity would be nice, but we haven’t got the time. We have to get this problem solved now, and we need a plan to do it.”

In 2019 there will be a migration option for customers based in Canada (their tenant is homed there), and by extension, this will apply for Australia and Japan too. But for all practical purposes right now, this announcement is just a signaling device at this time that a change is coming.

A decade of living and learning, hosting and harvesting

Chris Corrigan

That retainer - for which I will always be grateful - gave me a start in the freelance world that was all I needed to build a pretty solid little practice. I have worked with people from various communities of practice, including Open Space, World Cafe, Genuine Contact and most deeply, the Art of Hosting. And who can know what I’ll be writing about on August 31, 2019, in my 51st year, as I catch myself surprised at all that has happened.
