Open Source Scholarship - Next Steps

Open Source Scholarship - Next Steps | Agile Learning | Scoop.it
The concept is Open Source Scholarship.

Excerpts:

I find it challenging to figure out how to really 
be a practicing open source scholar. To me, Open Source Scholarship is not just about our research, but about our practice as academics–a practice of research, inquiry, teaching, learning, dis/un-covery, and engagement. Practically, politically, ethically, and socially, we face many barriers in opening up our processes as scholars.

___________________________

It is about...build[ing] a commons, while ...dismantl[ing] the histories of oppression...used to promote and the limited knowledge systems we’ve propagated. 

___________________________


As a teacher, I’m limited from opening up my syllabus and course online because it is owned by my school, or owned by my department, and is therefore proprietary.

As a graduate student, if I begin to publish my half-baked ideas and thoughts as I work and invite criticism as I go, I am breaking out of standard academic norms, and am therefore “endangering my future career.”

Open Source Scholarship is a massive attitude and orientation change change for scholars. ... It is about transforming a history in academia of using secrecy, privacy, and private ownership of ideas into one of shared, participatory, co-designed and developed, public, and free work.

It is about...helping to build a commons, while simultaneously attempting to dismantle the histories of oppression that knowledge generated in universities has been used to promote and the limited knowledge systems we’ve propagated.

Open source scholarship is a radical transformation in the universities relationship with ideas, in scholars relationships with students and colleagues, in relationships with communities. It is an explosion of the concept of “inside” and “outside”, of “expert” and “lay”, of privileged knowledge and everyday knowledge.

Whether or not academics and universities want it, this is the coming world. More and more people will be empowered to use and conduct research, ....the state of knowledge will be opened up in new ways we can’t yet even predict

Learning Design Perspectives: SAM and ADDIE

Learning Design Perspectives:  SAM and ADDIE | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

The author pointed says that no model (old or new) will prevent ‘boring, lifeless training.’   Can the [classic] ADDIE model be enhanced?  Absolutely. 

Excerpts:

The essential differences in these models, including what’s captured in Allen’s SAM process, is to make the model less linear and to include feedback loops within the process for regular look backs, particularly to the data from the analysis phase. 


The problem with these models, including SAM, is that they seem to require redundancy.  There are certainly instances when such redundancy is not necessary. 


... the ADDIE model was [not] designed to be a strictly linear process anyway...

[The author]  ...prefers this cyclic visualization of ADDIE to better show the interactions between the phases.


From the comments:  " Is SAM similar to Agile and ADDIE similar to Waterfall, as in software development?

What Can Swarms Teach Us About Teams and High Performance?

What Can Swarms Teach Us About Teams and High Performance? | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

"Do you want your organization to behave in a more collaborative way? For better results, try taking some cues from nature."


The notion of “swarming” to assemble a cross-functional or cross-departmental team, could be considered a key factor in an organization’s ability to develop and thrive.


Gartner described a work swarm as a “flurry of collective activity” to deal with non-routine workplace problems or opportunities. Without this option, organizations can fall short in their quest to respond to stressors (or opportunities) in quickly changing internal and external environments.


....Building a pipeline of talent is imperative with swarming – but this should be developed in a manner that is meaningful. Mapping the skills and strengths of potential team players within relevant industries, becomes a critical goal.


Furthermore, teaming applications (like Jostle), can also help document the evolving skill sets of potential contributors.

Why "Learning Agility" matters & how to increase it

Why "Learning Agility" matters & how to increase it | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

"What is Learning Agility?  “The ability and willingness to learn from experience, and subsequently apply that learning.”  


Excerpted by a post by Paul Thoresen:

 It is this application of learning which differentiates those who have high potential from those who do not. Using this definition of Learning Agility includes a five factor multi-dimensional construct with several sub-factors (or dimensions). This description of the five main factors is adapted from Korn/Ferry International:

  1. Mental – The ability to think critically and be very comfortable with complexity.
  2. People – A skilled communicator and adept at perspective taking.
  3. Results – Achievement oriented and builder of productive teams.
  4. Change – Comfortable with change and seeks continuous improvement.
  5. Self-Awareness – Knows strengths and weaknesses; actively seeks blind spot information.


Lombardo and Eichinger estimate Learning Agility is high in 10% of the population. .... evidence suggests Learning Agility can be developed. It is not a trait you are stuck with; it can be increased with practice.

Guest blogger Paul also cites 7 learning agility resources for additional depth.  ~  Deb

How We Use Social Media for Informal Learning - Less trainers, More curators

How We Use Social Media for Informal Learning - Less trainers, More curators | Agile Learning | Scoop.it
Vendors talk about social learning like its something revolutionary, but I'm here to tell you its not. Informal learning is an everyday thing.


Excerpt:


WHY SOCIAL MEDIA CHATS WORK FOR LEARNING

We’ve found social media chats to be the perfect way to get even the most skeptical participant at least a small amount of exposure to social media as a learning tool.

I identified some of the common objections people have to social media for learning above, and now I will show how social media chats meet each one of those challenges:
 

  • It takes very little work to participate: People are able to take a 30 minute break from whatever task they were completing on a Thursday afternoon and spend time chatting with co-workers about topics of general interest. Since the articles are curated for them, it is easy to participate...
    
  • The weekly chat is a regular reminder to participate: #TalkTech is a recurring weekly event on everyone’s Outlook calendar. Everyone in the company knows it’s happening and the chat serves as a constant reminder to take advantage of social media tools for personal learning, even if that just means logging in for 30 minutes a week.
   
  • It’s easy to chat, or just read: People start to feel more comfortable participating in the chat when they see co-workers doing it. Since the topics are posted in our blog and we create a transcript of the chat afterwards, even people who prefer to absorb the content at a slower pace can access the information and benefit from the learning.
    
  • The chat provides structure: It’s easier to know “what to say” on social media when everyone is discussing the same topic for a set period of time. Instead of trying to figure out what to post about, the chat provides direction… and a clear start and stop time.

Inquiry Learning Vs. Standardized Content: Can They Coexist? | Agile Learning | Scoop.it


"Increasingly, any standards-based curriculum is at odds with the outside world.  Is sticking to content standards still appropriate?"


Beyond the core literacies of reading, writing, computation, and research, the world-wide culture of innovation, discovery, multi-polarity, interdisciplinary thinking, and rapid change depends on the explosive potential of the human mind, not entombed truths from the past.


....how can you, as a teacher, help move the dialogue forward? First, you can focus on becoming a highly-effective project based learning (PBL) teacher.


But PBL is the near-term solution. The ultimate destination is to align education with the requirements of a process-based world.

Avoiding 3 Blended Learning Mistakes and the Future of OnLine Learning

Avoiding 3 Blended Learning Mistakes and the Future of OnLine Learning | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

"Adapting a course to a blended learning format is not difficult.  Avoiding these three common errors helps."


1) Simply using an existing segment of the course for the live component.

    

2) Reusing existing content unedited
  • If students don’t see the connection between both the online and in class components, their level of participation tends to decline.
    
3) Using the wrong medium for the content

In a recent report, the National Education Organization (NEA) stated that by 2019, researchers predict that 50% of all high school courses will be delivered online.


It’s easy to discount these figures as they are representative of education, not the corporate training environment. But keep in mind that these students will be fully conversant with blended learning concepts and applications having received a good part of their education in a blended format. 


In five to ten years, they will be competing for the same training dollars as you.

The Nature of the Future – Education & Change, Review by Harold Jarche

The Nature of the Future – Education & Change, Review by Harold Jarche | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

Marina Gorbis identifies unique human skills [that] should be the core of any public education program.


  • Sensemaking
  • Social and emotional intelligence
  • Novel and adaptive thinking
  • Moral and ethical reasoning


As Gorbis write... “Learning is Social”.


We need to learn how to work better with machines, letting machines do what they are good at.


Gorbis shows how machines and average people can outperform experts at playing chess. 


“Weak human + machine + better process

was superior to a strong computer alone

Presentation Zen & Learning: Sir Ken Robinson Gives Best Talk Yet, TED & Education | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

Creativity and education expert Sir Ken Robinson delivered two amazingly popular TED Talks prior to his newest, and what could be his best to date in 2013.


Excerpted from a Garr Reynolds post:

     

_________________________
   
Good presentation is a balance of information, persuasion, and inspiration... [to] light a spark and point the way.

     

_________________________

   

His first talk http://bit.ly/1fjhkH6 —presented sans multimedia in the true Sir Ken Robinson style — was made in 2006 and is the most viewed TED talk of all time.

   

His follow-up talk given in 2010 http://bit.ly/1f6zZp2 also has been downloaded millions of times.

      

I have seen Sir Ken speak many times and he is always inspiring and engaging, but his latest TED talk, http://bit.ly/IEXH0Q presented at TED Talks Education in April of this year, is my favorite yet.
    
Good presentation is a balance of information, persuasion, and inspiration.

      

Presentations related to leadership must necessarily light a spark and point the way.

   

Sir Ken does not scream or jump up and down but he nonetheless ignites, provokes, and inspires his live audience, and anyone else who cares to listen to his presentation on line, in a meaningful and memorable way.

   

Millions of people have seen his latest talk, but just in case you have not, please set aside about 20 minutes to watch this outstanding, short TED talk.

"...automation is replacing most routine work...[leaving] customized work, which requires initiative, creativity and passion."

Valued work, and the environments in which it takes place, is becoming more complex. Professionals today are doing work that cannot be easily standardized.


______________________________

...the optimal way to do work is to constantly probe the environment and test emergent practices...[which] are dependent on the cooperation of all workers [and]... the free flow of knowledge.

______________________________

 

"In complexity, we can determine the relationship between cause and effect only in retrospect. ...[This] puts into question most of our management frameworks that require detailed analysis before we take action. It also shows that identifying and copying best practices is pretty well useless.


"In complex work environments, the optimal way to do work is to constantly probe the environment and test emergent practices. This requires an engaged and empowered workforce. Emergent practices are dependent on the cooperation of all workers (and management) as well as the free flow of knowledge.

 

"Work in complex situations requires a greater percentage of implicit knowledge,...Research shows that sharing complex knowledge requires strong interpersonal relationships. But discovering innovative ideas usually comes through loose social ties. Organizations need both, and communities of practice can help to connect tight work teams with loose social networks.

    

...this new world of work needs individuals who are adept at sense-making. One framework for this is personal knowledge management."


The most effective learning in the new world of work will be when engaged individuals, working out loud, share their knowledge. Training and education will remain inputs, but minor ones.

Companies ...have to trust the learner to do this,  by incorporating more opportunities for peer reviews and peer-to-peer dialogues into the course.

    Me as an infographic! Christina's Bio Illustrates It. | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

    To illustrate the previous full video on teaching, learning and doing research via social media in a university setting, here is an Infographic on Christina Costa.


    The website also links to her PhD thesis:  

    The participatory web in the context of academic research : landscapes of change and conflicts



    I just developed an infographic on my experience using easel.ly


    It doesn’t look as great as I’d like – need to improve my design skills!! – but this was pretty easy to create.


    A great way to illustrate one’s experience.

    Not The Same Old Garden Path - How We Can Literally Think Differently - TanveerNaseer.com | Agile Learning | Scoop.it
    Best-selling author William A. Donius shares what neuroscience has revealed about how we can learn to literally think differently to be more innovative.


    The process of using the non-dominant hand, considering a question and allowing an answer to flow forth from that hand without consciously thinking about it, is in effect, walking yourself down a new garden path – a truly amazing experience. 

    Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

    How to think differently, using your body in a different way, is VERY helpful to agile learning.  ~  D

    Drawing on both sides of the brain particularly the non dominant side opens one to new experiences and ways of thinking.

    Breaking through our patterned thinking is essential to adaptive and agile learning, esp. when we don't know what we don't know." Getting out of that comfort zone is a challenge, books like this help.
    Free Your Mind's curator insight, July 31, 2013 1:00 AM

    Neuroplasticity has proven that we can really re-train our brains for just about everything.  Given the right amount of effort and time you really can train yourself to react differently and be happier.  It's worth trying!

    12 Paradoxical Reasons Why Creative Limitations Are Not Limiting

    12 Paradoxical Reasons Why Creative Limitations Are Not Limiting | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

    Does the ideal creative situation feature options that are wide open with no limitations. Nope!
     

    In actuality, this scenario would stifle most creative people. Here’s why…


    1. Too many options cause paralysis

    Limits tell us where to start, when to stop, and perhaps most importantly, what to ignore. 


    2. A roadmap provides the clues that lead to solutions

    Defined parameters act as guideposts that help channel creativity in a focused way...


    3. Give a creative person a box and they will find a way out of it    ... it is simply amazing how often it transforms into a pleasurable, stimulating adventure in otherwise unchartered waters.

    30 Incredible Ways Technology Will Change Education By 2028


    Take a look at   2018


    Technology to promote early literacy habits is seeded by venture capitalists. This is the start of new government programs that start farming out literacy and educational programs to start-ups, entrepreneurs, app developers, and other private sector innovators.


    Digital literacy begins to outpace academic literacy in some fringe classrooms.


    ...Open Source learning models will grow faster than those closed, serving as a hotbed for innovation in learning.
