What is Wirearchy ?

What is Wirearchy ? | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
We all know and understand hierarchy - the enduring principle of the institutions that govern us and in which we work and live.
Jon Husband presents us a new emerging organizational principle, called Wirearchy.

The Internet is connecting customers, employees and communities and empowering them with information in ways never before possible. Taking decisions and managing organized activities are being impacted in powerful ways by interconnected networks of people and technology.

The impacts we're experiencing are creating new dynamics in organizations as well as emergent forms of organized activities that are based on participation and peer-to-peer interaction. As people get used to operating in these new conditions, often (but not always) the results are nimble, responsive, and results-focused networked groups and teams.

The new interconnected environment demands new principles for organizing collaborative activity. Traditional hierarchy does not lead and support networked activity as well as newer forms and principles.

And ... over the last ten years, it has become quite clear that the impacts of these living social networks will only grow, both in depth and reach.

The Future Is about People

The Future Is about People | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it

We are in the midst of a complex, rapidly changing and uncertain landscape where we must consider how society, the economy, and the environment will collide in unexpected ways to shape the future.


Ultimately, the future will differ greatly from today with shifts in society, advancements in technology, and the creation of new forms of government. The one thing that will remain the same is the central role of people in defining the landscape of the future. Whether it is through enabling exploration through a mindset of abundance, enhancing robotics for interpersonal relationships, or connecting virtual and physical worlds for better sense making, any useful vision of the future must be human centric.

Shake up your Point of View: What Online Students Want Compared to What Institutions Expect

Shake up your Point of View: What Online Students Want Compared to What Institutions Expect | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine whether a set of instructional practices commonly prescribed to online faculty in the higher education setting were consistent with the expectations of a group of experienced online student participants. Online faculty performance conventions were collected from 20 institutions of higher learning located in the United States. The collective practices yielded three primary domains related to administrative faculty performance expectations in online instruction: Communication, Presence/Engagement, and Timeliness/Responsiveness. Undergraduate participants representing a cross section of colleges and universities in the United States were surveyed to determine their expectations for online faculty as compared to scaled items derived from the lists of participating institutions. The results of this investigation offer practitioners insight into how administrative instructional guidelines relate to the user demands of an informed group of undergraduate online students.
