Re-Thinking Follow Models Within The Enterprise

Collaborative Thinking

One of the “hot topics” related to micro-blogging, activity streams, and social networking in general has been the concept of “following”. Past incarnations however were perhaps so subtle and housed within a particular use case scenario or application context, that we never really thought about how the model could be leveraged in a very broad and compelling manner. Two models have become popular: symmetric following and asymmetric following. Social Networking & Collaboratio

Designing for a family learning: meaningful activities for adults

I am trying to articulate what are the important ingredients here – a lot of it comes from the reflection on the practices in our homeschooling network and experiences of organising various learning activities there. Working on a project together or doing something of your own when kids are present allows them to observe “parents in action”, as role-models and not only as caregivers or facilitators of kids-centric learning and activities.

Beyond Institutions – Personal Learning in a Networked World

In this presentation I look at the needs and demands of people seeking learning with the models and designs offered by traditional institutions, and in the spirit of reclaiming learning describe a new network-based system of education with the learner managing his or her education. A particularly challenging point that Stephen made was ‘Do away with models’ – learning models and design models. The right model is no model.

Our experienced designer frames these relevant models of social search and walks though how to think through the problems to get to a more optimal solution. There is a problem with this approach since personal networks may be narrow.
