Social Intranets Enable Knowledge Management, by Connie Crosby – Slaw

Social Intranets Enable Knowledge Management, by Connie Crosby – Slaw | Fatima Alessa | Scoop.it

A few weeks ago I was fortunate to see Gordon Ross speak on a panel talking about the social intranet and KM for legal knowledge management practitioners in the public sector. Ross is a partner with the Vancouver-based consulting firm Open Road and the Vice President responsible for strategy and professional services for their social intranet platform ThoughtFarmer. He has written a blog post outlining his thoughts from that talk: How Social Intranets can Support Legal Knowledge Management.

[...]

In other words, the social intranet is easier to use, so more people will use it to share what they know."

Will MOOCs open elite universities to excessive corporate influence? (essay) | Inside Higher Ed | Mark Edmundson

Will MOOCs open elite universities to excessive corporate influence? (essay) | Inside Higher Ed | Mark Edmundson | Fatima Alessa | Scoop.it

"It’s possible that the incursion of the Internet market into the universities will be something like the incursion of big-time college sports. There are any number of American schools that appear now to have been swallowed by their sports programs. ... Something similar may happen with Internet education. Certain colleges may become addicted to the revenue that Internet courses draw and they will deform themselves in the attempt to make more and more money. They will adulterate their intellectual goods for the marketplace and perhaps those goods will sell briskly. "

 

Comment: Yet another pebble in the pond of opinions on how MOOCs might affect education, and a good one at that. The piece ends in an optimistic note: "The quest for truth will always collide in time with the quest for profits." I hope with the author that this is how the story ends. But once you allow money to dictate academic values, there's no real going back, I fear. Look at the film industry (the author himself mentions Hollywood), the music industry. Financial gain is the great homogeniser, we should never allow it to even aspire to that role in academia.  

Note: For now, the bleak scenario applies to the USA in particular, but ever more countries in the world seem to be wiling to organise themselves in such a way that financial arguments are the ultimate and only judge of the policies they choose to adopt and ignore. If that is true, nobody is immune to the scenario sketched here. (peter sloep, @pbsloep)

Nancy Duarte notes the Dr. King spoke in short bursts more reminiscent of poetry than of long-winded lecture-speak and highlights his most powerful rhetorical devices — repetition, metaphors, visual words, references to political documents, citations from sacred texts and spiritual songs.

We will need to read Dewey about play and community. A couple of others who might want to read are Habermas, Gadamer, and Montessori.

Gamification isn’t enough: we’re missing something big here ~ Innovation Investment Journal | Fatima Alessa | Scoop.it

Video gamers do not only 'play a game'. They also rely intensively upon developing and using ‘tacit knowledge’ to play a game. Affinity space is the place where all that tacit knowledge can be made explicit, where the in-game experiences can be described, where relevant insight, capabilities and skills can be shared, debated and imparted within a ‘community of interest’.

No wonder wikis are sometimes these 'affinity spaces'...

How do we transfer knowledge through everyday meeting talk? - Lesley Crane study asking for participants

How do we transfer knowledge through everyday meeting talk? - Lesley Crane study asking for participants | Fatima Alessa | Scoop.it

"Lesley Crane is a final year PhD student investigating organizational knowledge work - knowledge transfer and sharing. Her study focuses on how such work is accomplished in everyday meeting talk. This seems to me to be an original approach in that it locates the study of knowledge in talk and text, and it is this discourse which she is analysing to investigate how and with what effect people share and create knowledge. 

She is looking to engage with organizations who would be willing to take part in her study. It is unobtrusive - she doesn't even need to be present! All she needs are good recordings of any type of organizational meeting. The only proviso is that participants need to be English speakers! Confidentiality and anonymity are guaranteed. 

If you would like to help please get in touch with Lesley via email @ l.crane1@unimail.derby.ac.uk. 

If this approach intrigues you as it does me then you will find two of her past papers here

Social Technologies: A Catalyst to the practice of Knowledge Management — Knowledge Sharing — Medium

Social Technologies: A Catalyst to the practice of Knowledge Management — Knowledge Sharing — Medium | Fatima Alessa | Scoop.it

"Social technologies are a catalyst to the practice of knowledge management.


Engaging in an active social network speeds the access to the 3 types of knowledge: (1) Personal knowledge (tacit or experiential), (2) knowledge at rest (consumable knowledge, informational assets) and exponentially expands access to (3) knowledge in motion (knowledge that is processed and exchanged as a result transformed and updated).


As a result, if one has access to social technologies, our access to these types of knowledge increases, the speed at which we can transform that knowledge increases and thusly we are personally transformed faster by it."
