The River Diagram: Strategic community change management

The Bumble Bee

Chris Collison has introduced me to The River Diagram - a great strategic tool for moving a community of groups forward via common initiatives and best practice sharing.

The example diagram below is taken from an Evaluation of the UNAIDS/UNITAR AIDS Competence Programme.

Connectivism and ‘Ah-Ha’ moments

Jenny Connected

But then someone raises a question like what is the difference between constructivism and connectivism – as John Mak did and even being familiar with George’s diagram - I begin to question my understanding all over again and doubt it. This is where I have surprised myself in finding Matthias’ diagram/map so helpful (I usually cannot relate to these types of diagrams – Matthias knows this so I am not insulting him). Do you understand what connectivism is?

Messy

Viv Mcwaters

Forms, flow charts, matrices, systems diagrams, models – all are designed to help us make sense of this complex, messy world we live in. We assume that messy can be ordered, that wild can be tamed, that we can predict cause and effect. Sometimes we can. If machines are involved, usually. When humans are involved, everything changes. Messy is normal. Get used to it.
