distributed cognition and supporting learning@work

Taming the spaces

There are two main ways in which, distributed cognition may be framed – epistemic distributed cognition and collective distributed cognition, which are mutually interrelated.

#fslt12 MOOC Distributed Learning Spaces

Jenny Connected

But on this MOOC we are expecting people who are not only new to learning and teaching in Higher Education, but might also never have done an online course, or might not have worked in distributed online spaces, like we will be doing for this course. Working across distributed spaces does require some self-organisation. Over the weekend I prepared a video presentation to provide a brief overview of the learning spaces we will be working in during this MOOC.

Gossip, Collaboration, and Performance in Distributed Teams

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

What do you think the typical manager might say if you told them their employees don't gossip and engage one another in non-work related tasks enough? Most managers have heard of the watercooler effect without ever having the meaning of the concept sink in to their understanding of how it relates to performance and collaboration. A couple of studies released this summer dealing with performance and collaboration in teams merit consideration.

Community as Curriculum – vol 2. The Guild/Distributed Continuum

Delicious/choconancy/community

rhizomatic learning distributes the channels of knowing outside traditional hierarchical models and into the social realm, allowing for help in sifting through the flow of information and knowledge. The other, the distributed model of community, i.e., multiple membership roles in multiple communities, offers far greater flexibility , though less control. It can be seen as a gateway to a more distributed, more flexible view of learning communities. Distributed Community.

Distribution

Engineers without Fears

Moving from centralised to decentralised to distributed basically means moving from managing via boundaries to managing via attractors. The centralised community is held together by common protocols whereas the distributed community is held together by social objects. For the distributed model to work, you need a way of tagging (or literally branding) your social objects and making their movements between members at least partially visible.

#PLENK2010 Assessment in distributed networks

Jenny Connected

I have been struggling to clearly identify the issues associated with assessment in PLEs/PLNs – which are probably similar to those in MOOCs or distributed networks. Is it desirable/possible to assess learners in course which takes place in a distributed network? Is it possible/desirable to accredit learning in course which takes place in a distributed network? Both assessment and accreditation are possible across distributed networks if the numbers are manageable.
