James Fowler on the Power of Social Networks - Science Rockstars | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it

"Your book Connected has introduced me to the science behind our social networks. It is a mind opening book. I even made my wife read it (and she loved it). After that, people like Duncan Watts and Sinan Aral also did a great job in pushing the science of social networks further and at the same time popularizing it.

 

For those who are not familiar with your work, what are the main insights you gained on networks, and why should businesses bother themselves with these insights?'

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, August 23, 2013 6:46 PM

Augmented Collective Intelligence always involves a technology component and a human social component. Digital media such as personal computers and smartphones can augment the ability of individuals to think, problem-solve, and communicate. At the same time, digital networks enable people to form new kinds of publics and to work together in ways not previously practical or possible. A key to understanding the way augmented collective intelligence can emerge or even be instigated is an understanding of the way human social networks work.

We Just Can't Keep Up...

We Just Can't Keep Up... | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it

TED is awesome…  I recently watched a TED talk by Eddie Obeng  who spoke about our fast changing world.  His central focus was the idea that the pace at which the world is advancing is exponential 

whereas the pace of learning and education is and has been consistent.  Schools are improving – we just can’t keep up.

 

Consequently, educators are feverishly looking for ways to make schools once-again interesting for kids.

 

One of my favorite progressive educational leaders and thinkers is Sir Ken Robinson@SirKenRobinson.  He gave a TED talk in 2006 that has since been viewed by over 16 million people. 

 

He is an advocate for fostering creativity in children because in the end, it will be creativity that solves the problems of tomorrow. 

 

His concern (shared by many) is that our school systems and institutions are designed around conformity, greatly reducing the ability of educators to foster creativity.

Elahe Amani's comment, May 15, 2013 7:16 PM
Yes, I think Moocs are great for making learning possible for those who don't have access to good classrooms here in US and also globally. But we, in higher education will continue to face the challenges regarding engaging students in learning ( curricular and co-curricular ) and the challenge of institutions shifting their paradigm from a teaching institution to a learning institutions.
Brad Ovenell-Carter's curator insight, May 16, 2013 10:55 AM

We like a magic bullet, a one trick fix to complex problems. Hence our conversations about STEM, CORE etc. HR has a more nuanced assessment. Some of the tech we're playing with, MOOCs for instance, open another path that some may want to take. 

 

This is a good reminder not to let the means become the end. We've already been down that road and look where we've ended up.

Absolutely Brad - "magic" but the "cure" remains elusive.
