Book review: the new social learning

Joitske Hulsebosch

I read 'the New Social Learning' by Tony Bingham and Marcia Conner. There was actually less new information than I had hoped for, I missed a deeper layer of understanding how social media changes learning processes. And the relationships built through that stream.

We live in relationship with all things and all people. This is why reason arises out of the face-to-face relationships we have with other people. Do we try to listen and learn from the ‘Other’? Interdisciplinary Science Reviews, 43(2), 146–155.

The information below builds out a scholary foundation that will evolve into a Literature Review and then a "mock thesis" report as part of my Masters in Media Studies (first year). . Instead, it should be examined as one of many different types of communication models and how media affects interpersonal and societal relationships.

Learning from mistakes versus learning from feedback

Joitske Hulsebosch

On the knowledge management for development list there was a discussion about learning from mistakes. I decided to join because I was curious to understand whether you can really learn from mistakes. And can we only learn from our own mistakes or also other people's mistakes?

Teaching and Learning in #FSLT12

Jenny Connected

Without exception these have been impressive and as one of the course conveners it is humbling to work with learners from whom I learn such a lot. No matter how experienced or confident we are in our teaching, there is nothing like being peer reviewed to make us take stock and critically reflect on what it is we are doing. I feel a strong sense of resonance with Carl Rogers’ ideas about facilitation and the importance of relationships in teaching and learning.

Collaboration Is Misunderstood and Overused - Andrew Campbell - Harvard Business Review

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

Harvard Business Review. Unlike a customer-supplier relationship, collaborators cannot walk away from each other, when they disagree. So a collaborative relationship is necessary when you cannot use a team or a customer-supplier relationship. It is a form of customer-supplier relationship in which the participants have all the difficulties of contracting with each other without the power to walk away if the other party is being unreasonable or insensitive.

Treat Your Employees like Neighbors - Art Markman - Harvard Business Review

John Tropea - Delicious Community

Harvard Business Review. This tension between the players desire to get paid his worth and the fans hope for loyalty is at the root of a key insight into human social relationships. In a classic 1992 paper (PDF), Alan Page Fiske describes four elementary forms of social relationships, basically: families, neighborhoods, hierarchies, and markets. This kind of relationship can go bad when one neighbor consistently asks for things from others without giving back.
