"Utopian Potential of the Internet": Astra Taylor on How to Take Back Power ... - Democracy Now | Networkistas | Scoop.it

We are joined by author and activist Astra Taylor, whose new book, "The People’s Platform: Taking Back Power and Culture in the Digital Age," argues net neutrality is just the beginning of ensuring equal access and representation online. "The utopian potential of the net is real," Taylor notes. "The problem is the underlying economic conditions haven’t changed. The same old business imperatives, the same old incentives that shaped the old model and made it so problematic are still with us. The Internet might have disrupted investigative journalism, but it didn’t disrupt advertising."

Social Mirror « Tablet Tech for Network Surveys | Networkistas | Scoop.it

From the RSA:

Social networks – who you know and are connected to – are understood to reach into all areas of life, yet very few people or organisations are capable of drawing insights from network information.

Social Mirror is a tablet application that you can use to measure, visualise, and see the potential for change in online and offline networks. Starting in January 2012, we developed a prototype for use by social science researchers.

Three types of online facilitation

Three types of online facilitation | Networkistas | Scoop.it

From Ed Mitchell January 2008:

 

This post compliments my earlier post about the three types of community where I described three ways of looking at communities from the point of view of centricity and the login. It is meant to give you an idea about the challenges and opportunities offered to facilitators and community managers in an increasingly distributed online environment.

A brief post in support of email. Possibly controversiall, but am I

the only sceptic that is prepared to challenge the “great myth” that email is the root cause of worker inefficiency and the blight of our 21st century lives?

 

But reducing the volume of unnecessary email is a legitimate strategy, and I offer 7 simple steps for doing this. See the post for details. #email

If you look closely at people who are succeeding in this new digital world of work, you'll notice they have something in common: they're fast learners and they're willing to adapt. If you want to grow as a person and a worker and if you want to gain skills that will help you take that next step in your career, you'll probably have to

One way to grow a networked teacher, is to grow a networked learner, by Joyce Seitzinger

One way to grow a networked teacher, is to grow a networked learner, by Joyce Seitzinger | Networkistas | Scoop.it

"In my new role as Lecturer in Blended Learning, a part of my role is staff development. Staff development has always been a part of my roles, both in how do you do staff development in a networked world?"

Comment: rich essay on how networked learning prepares people for networked working and networked professional development. It not only advocates the use of social media for this, but also lays out a course-like structure that allows in this case teachers to acquaint themselves with these media. That said, what I miss is what I miss in all these kinds of accounts that promote social media for learning, my own included: how do people learn with them in actual fact and how effectively do they learn? There is the hunch that social media offer unprecedented opportunities for learning. But there still is little evidence to substantiate it. (Peter sloep)

Stephen Dale's curator insight, August 9, 2013 2:08 AM

The objective of the book is to make accessible the ways in which social network analysis (SNA) may be used to observe, monitor and analyse systems and relationships in major construction project coalitions. Although this has been an established analytical technique in the US for some time, it is only now being developed in the UK.

Rethinking networks as passionate human clouds

David Wilcox interview Peggy Duvette of WiserEarth in 2009

Three observations stood out for me from our chat: mix face-to-face and online networking, go where people are already gathered rather than expecting them to come to your place, and what makes it all work is passion for an issue. If people are passionate, concerned, and want to meet others then they will make the effort to use the tools.

What Does the Collaboration “Field” Look Like? | Groupaya

What Does the Collaboration “Field” Look Like? | Groupaya | Networkistas | Scoop.it

I've chosen this piece becaue (a) collaboration is a topic very close to my heart as a KM professional and  (b) it provides actual data that confirms something I've long suspected - the gap between technologists and organisational change skills.

 

To quote from the author:

I was disappointed, but not surprised, that “collaboration” as a skill was mostly lumped with technology skills. Folks in the Enterprise 2.0 space, for example, have almost no overlap with organizational development professionals. It’s a troubling trend. Although people are fond of saying, “It’s not about technology, it’s about people,” there’s not much practice validating that mantra.

 

Value: 9/10
