Tips for learning that sticks

Viv Mcwaters

Use models wisely. There’s two types of models. Yeah, yeah – I know there’s way more models than just two. I want to concentrate of the type of models and how we react to them. The first model is drawn on paper (or whiteboard, or flip chart, or screen). The most common of this type of model is the humble map – whether it’s maps on your device or a humble mud map drawn on the back of an envelope (does anyone use envelopes anymore?)

I’ve been asked to design and deliver a short session on communication skills (2 hours) as part of a longer training for a group of mentors. It’s much harder to design a short session than it is to design one or two days, or even a whole week’s worth.

OpenSocial In The Enterprise

Collaborative Thinking

We need to start designing and implementing social networking platforms that have capabilities to span internal and external audiences. And to be fair - developers from the consumer side of the market, need to embrace the need for robust permission models, audit, and other capabilities that are critically important to many organizations - especially if they are in regulated industries. But the symmetric friend model makes less sense within the enterprise.

Community vs. Social Network - Lithosphere Community

John Tropea - Delicious Community

With this knowledge, it should be obvious why Facebook , MySpace , and LinkedIn are social networks as opposed to communities. It is actually very difficult to fake a Facebook or LinkedIn profile, because your friends (or who you connect to) will collectively identify you. But social network services are also developing community-like interactions, like Groups in FB and LinkedIn.

Redesigning Civil Society, collaboratively

Some of you are into virtual guidebooks, others into Linkedin-like tools, local e-competitions, unconferences, or digital storytelling. It also gives me a nudge to do some joining up with guides I’ve written on participation and partnerships , and dig back into some entries on my old blog Designing for Civil Society. I’m expecting to re-inforce ideas about being open and human, generous … co-designing, learning from others, connecting across boundaries.
