Peer Learning Handbook | Peeragogy.org

"The editors of the Peeragogy Handbook are delighted to announce that the revised, second edition of the Handbook (“Version 2″) will be published on Public Domain Day 2014 (1 Jan. ’14). The Handbook is the world’s first book to present Peeragogy, a synthesis of techniques for collaborative learning and collaborative work. Itself the result of the techniques it presents, this version features a new Foreword from the Internet pioneer and collaboration thinker, Stanford University educator, and founding editor of the Handbook, Howard Rheingold.

 

The Handbook has drawn praise from leading Peer-to-Peer theorist Michel Bauwens, Research Director of the Free/Libre Open Knowledge Society (a project at the Instituto de Altos Estudios Nacionales (IAEN) national university in Ecuador, with support of the Ecuadorian Ministry of Human Resource and Knowledge): “Rheingold and a great team of collaborators have preceded the rest of humanity in exploring the new dynamics of technologically-enhanced peer learning,” said Bauwens." -- From Source: http://peeragogy.org

ghbrett's insight:

It was an intense and exciting project to be part of the editorial team. This Handbook is an outstanding resource for any one interested in using existing and emerging online technologies for peer and collaborative learning. It is online now at Peeragogy.org

Learning by p2p networks is important for disruptive innovation and also accelation of innovation. We live in exponential times!

"With YouTube, Wikipedia, search engines, free chatrooms, blogs, wikis, and video communication, today’s self-learners have power never dreamed-of before. What does any group of self-learners need to know in order to self-organize learning about any topic? The Peeragogy Handbook is a volunteer-created and maintained resource for bootstrapping peer learning.

This project seeks to empower the worldwide population of self-motivated learners who use digital media to connect with each other, to co-construct knowledge of how to co-learn. Co-learning is ancient; the capacity for learning by imitation and more, to teach others what we know, is the essence of human culture. We are human because we learn together. Today, however, the advent of digital production media and distribution/communication networks has raised the power of co-learning to a new level." -- from the source: http://peeragogy.org/
ghbrett's insight:

  This project / living document for co-eLearning will be a site worth participating in or a the least reading periodically. Howard Rheingold, under the "Resources" section has a post about "How to use this Handbook" at http://peeragogy.org/how-to-use-this-handbook/ ;  So be sure to check this out. BTW there is an initial YouTube! video clip by Howard introducing Peeragogy at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SDuSpOUtyJE

"I (Howard Rheingold) also discovered, through a co-learner in a Rheingold U class, about "Paragogy" -- the nascent theory of peer to peer pedagogy. The co-learner, Charles Danoff, wrote a paper about it with Joseph Corneli: Paragogy: Synthesizing Individual and Organizational Learning. Searching on the word "paragogy" reveals more resources -- but not so many that they can't be surveyed quickly. The field is just beginning to grow.

I've been invited to deliver the 2011 Regents' Lecture at University of California, Berkeley. I intend to expand the paragogy universe by instigating a peer-created guide to pure peer-to-peer learning. I'm calling it "peeragogy." While "paragogy" is more etymologically correct, "peeragogy" is self-explanatory. In my lecture, I'll explain the evolution of my own pedagogy and reveal some of what I've discovered in the world of online self-organized learning. Then I will invite volunteers to join me in a two week hybrid of face-to-face seminars and online discussion. Can we self-organize our research, discover, summarize, and prioritize what is known through theory and practice, then propose, argue, and share a tentative resource guide for peeragogical groups? In theory, those who use our guide to pursue their own explorations can edit the guide to reflect new learning.

It's not exactly a matter of making my own role of teacher obsolete. If we do this right, I'll learn more about facilitating others to self-organize learning." http://dmlcentral.net/
ghbrett's insight:

Recently there has been great interest in massive open online courses (MOOCs) as collaborative online learning experiences. This reviewer has been hearing, reading, listening, and talking about collaboration for education, training, and research for a couple decades now. Moving beyond the MOOC concept, Howard's article is a thoughtful piece on his and other's view of peeragogy. It contemplates the where and the how "peeragogy" will be a convergence of collaboration, self-learning, organized learning, MOOCs and other online collaborative resources. There is great potential here for advances in how to use technology. This will happen in a way that improves communication between and among students, teachers, and others.  Plus "peeragogy" will engage people to become participants in these processes rather than silent observers.
