Using Cynefin for learning design?

Mathemagenic

“On Understanding Software Agility: A Social Complexity Point Of View (.pdf) Eventually I’d like to get further in thinking about designing learning experiences using Cynefin as a framework (thanks Nancy for pointing to an update). I’m not 100% sure about designing learning experience as a term, but it’s way better than instructional design.

Learning is everywhere

There was also a dose of social-emotional development. Yesterday I went to pick up a few things at Viermarken , a little farm close to our house.

Blogging for knowledge workers: incubating ideas

Mathemagenic

Those relations do not appear automatically: it takes time and effort before one can enjoy social effects of blogging. While my Dutch is still far from perfect I am happy with any opportunity to reach local audiences. One of them was writing two articles on blogging for Dutch magazine Informatie Professional – on weblog as an instrument to develop ideas and as a networking tool.

Facilitating unschooling: bridging the gap between interests of a child and external expectations

Mathemagenic

From an unschooling perspective I’d reformulate those points as the following: bridging the gap between interests of a child and external expectations (practices in a society, formal educational requirements, job-market demands); embedding learning opportunities and facilitation into everyday life, daily routines, family activities and practices outside of the house; making sure that contextual factors (family culture, social environment, space and resources available) support learning.

Facilitating learning of our kids

Mathemagenic

From a social perspective we view learning as legitimate peripheral participation. Where are many ways to do homeschooling (and even unschooling :), so it’s often difficult to explain what exactly we do to facilitate learning of our kids.

In search for reflection formats that fit

Mathemagenic

Today, I suddenly realised that I’m starting to miss ‘the other side’ In a contrast with the last three days – busy in a good way – I think I’m starting to miss the ‘digital’, now for the simple reason that the flow in front of the computer allows relatively easy switching between being social and being solo, writing and reflecting. When I stopped working, one of the things I wanted was about doing more non-digital, observable things.

Thuisonderwijzers leren samen: learning with adults

Mathemagenic

This week is National Education Week in the Netherlands and its focus is on learning socially. For me the social is at the core of learning, so it took a while to figure out what exactly to write about.

More blogging, less Facebook

Mathemagenic

In the last hours of 2015 the story on how Social networks are turning the internet into television by Hossein Derakhshan came to me, via Facebook, of course. He writes about striking contrast between internet as a web with its hyperlinked currency before and the television model that it’s becoming now: Even before I went to jail, though, the power of hyperlinks was being curbed.

Do I give lessons at home?

Not bloging, identities and Happy New Year :)

As for the online writing – it feels funny to see how social media is getting picked up by lots of people I know and, at the same time, not to have much of the need to do it myself.

Last years were a great journey into a networked world – living and working “on the network&# , emerging from social connections that defy structure and boundaries.

My dissertation online and in print

Mathemagenic

As other social media weblogs hold the promise to change the way in which work is done. The printed version of my dissertation arrived today. Was fun to run around and give it to the colleagues in the office.

Blogs as boundary objects

Mathemagenic

They have different meanings in different social worlds but their structure is common enough to more than one world to make them recognizable means of translation. The creation and management of boundary objects is key in developing and maintaining coherence across intersecting social worlds.

Being there together via presence and activity traces

Mathemagenic

excuses to be there that are not necessarily involve working towards a shared goal or being intentionally social, opportunities to see what’s going on and to be seen in a non-intrusive way , easy switching between inward- and outward-oriented activities. This list is heavily based on the ideas about conditions for emergent social activities in urban public spaces from Life between buildings by Jan Gehl.

Talk at IBM: Blogging for knowledge workers

Mathemagenic

Today I’ll be talking to social software evangelists at IBM about some of the insights about blogging from my PhD research. While there are many things that I would love to fit in there, most of the presentation is focused on “what’s in it for me?&# questions, explaining how blogging helps to develop ideas and how it supports personal networking, with bits at the end about facilitating blogging.

Reflective learning and weblogs

Mathemagenic

When I was asked to facilitate a discussion on reflective learning and weblogs at the workshop on Informal learning and the use of social software in veterinary medicine I hesitated: while reflective learning is part of my practice, at the moment I’m far from the theories about it or from facilitating reflective learning in educational settings. [This post was in drafts for a while; posted on the actual date of the workshop, so the participants can find it.].

Blogging for knowledge workers: personal networking

Mathemagenic

These days, people almost count on social effects of blogging, however it is not always obvious how exactly blogging helps to build reputation and relationships and what is required to make it work that way. Since it’s easy to read weblogs without making yourself visible, contact that might follow are often asymmetrical: bloggers have to figure out how to deal with socially awkward situations talking to strangers who know them pretty well.

Things I did in the middle of the night

Mathemagenic

Didn’t get into a blogpost writing flow, but instead socialised on Twitter: followed a few links, some social, some with work-related input. [This blog is also a diary]. Somewhere in the middle of the night Alexander woke up for a bit of my attention. Once sleep was broken all kinds of things followed: I kept on returning to conversations at work about empowerment and leadership and drove myself more awake. Got out of the bed thinking that writing things down would help.

How to become part of a blogging ecosystem?

Mathemagenic

share links to good stuff written by others (via microblogging, social bookmakring, etc.). connect your weblog to other tools (add link to email signature and social network profiles, add notifications about new blog posts on Twitter , etc.). When I talk about blogging I often tell that it’s individual, but most of the good things that come out of it are the result of being part of a blogging ecosystem. Which often brings questions on how to do so.

#KM4Dev – blogging session

Mathemagenic

It was part of the social reporting afternoon and was supposed to provide the participants with opportunities to get hands-on experiences with various tools and actually do social reporting of the group work done beforehand. It didn’t really work that way: we drifted away from blogging as social reporting tool (I’m not surprised, but that’s a topic for another post) and couldn’t practice as some other groups since wifi didn’t want to collaborate.

CPsquare foundations: themes and questions to explore

Mathemagenic

So, instead, I’ll make a list of themes and questions around communities (and being social online :) that I’m interested to explore (and then see if something of that clicks with others and what else emerges in the process): Communities – networks – individuals, practice and theory. Weblog networks as social ecosystems. Last Monday I started online CPsquare foundations workshop.

Cognitive Edge accreditation and SenseMaker workshop

Mathemagenic

social network stimulation and social objects, role of rewards? Full from all kinds of follow-up thinking from the Cognitive Edge accreditation and SenseMaker workshop last week, so unloading it here… I came across Dave Snowden ’s work on complexity and sense-making a while ago , played with some ideas, but didn’t have time to get into it properly.

PhD is done

Mathemagenic

I want to write a very excited post that my PhD journey is over and share the details of the defense, but too tired from being active and social. So, until I find the time and energy to blog it properly: I’m a Dr. now :). No tags for this post. Related posts. No related posts

Facilitating adoption of weblogs in knowledge-intensive environments

Mathemagenic

Start by helping potential bloggers to find uses of a weblog personally meaningful for them in the long term – these are essential to sustain blogging while social effects of it emerge. Promised to blog this piece from the dissertation in February (together with What pragmatists might want to know about blogging ), but wasn’t happy with it. Still not happy, but here it is (in a slightly updated form).

Blog networking study: establishing and maintaining relations via blogging

Mathemagenic

According to Nardi affinity is achieved through activities of social bonding - touching, eating and drinking together, sharing experiences in a common space and informal communication - that make people feel connected with each other. Three of the social bonding activities appear in the data. Social networks and internet connectivity effects. Large social network imposes an higher attention degree on what goes on worldwide.

Blog networking study: choosing channels

Mathemagenic

Over time bloggers connect in other online spaces (social networking and photo sharing sites, microblogging tools, etc). I used existing connections on a variety of channels, but also added more connections during the study (email addresses, Twitter, Skype, social network contacts). This post is part of the series describing the results of the study of blogger networking practices. Please take into account a couple of things: This is a draft.

Bloggers cited in my dissertation

Mathemagenic

I made a page to include references to the people weblogs of whom I cite or discuss in some way in my dissertation , this post is a shortened version of it. It is here to notify bloggers that quotes from their blogs (or links to them) appear in the dissertation text.

What pragmatists might want to know about blogging

Mathemagenic

Emergent social. It takes time and effort before one can enjoy social effects of blogging. Behind my PhD research is an interest in translating practices of early adopters of weblogs into something that those that come after them might use: an understanding of relative advantage of blogging in knowledge-intensive environments and it’s compatibility with existing practices.

Blog as an edge zone

Mathemagenic

I’ve been playing with city-related metaphors for a long time, heavily inspired by the book by Danish architect Jan Gehl “ Life between buildings “ Now I tie together multiple fragments of it in a final chapter of my dissertation, using it to explain the ‘front porch’ nature of blogging and its impact for emergent social processes. It feels strange now, almost at the end of my PhD work, to come back to the themes and topics from the beginning of it.

Blog networking study: non-personal relations and lurking

Mathemagenic

I like this concept, and this quote formulates very well what I have been thinking about as the liberating aspect of the sorts of instrumental, utilitarian (in the good sense) social networks that can develop in the blogosphere. For me, “community” - in the social as well as learning-related sense - has always had something oppressive about it, like being stuck in a village where everyone gossips about everyone else and where there is a pressure to fit in, to fully participate.

Blog as a nexus of multimembership and accidental brokering

Mathemagenic

When one belongs to different social worlds, being a one person requires what Wenger discusses as reconciliation , the process of constructing an identity that can integrate “different meanings and forms of participation into one nexus&# (p.160). Although usually participation in different social worlds is somewhat separated in time and space (e.g. This is a piece from the current version of final chapter of my dissertation where I discuss blogging across various boundaries.

Sense-making: from blogging to research methodologies

Mathemagenic

As I experienced the flexibility of organising my thinking with the weblog, as well as the fun and added value of the social nature of it, it became more and more difficult to use conventional data analysis methods and tools. The social nature of sense-making with blogging indicates other challenges.
