Peer Learning Handbook |

"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:

What are the aims and motivations of this movement’s pioneers, and how do concepts about digital transparency, open data and the Commons impact society? Based on contributions from a variety of thought leaders working in fields as diverse as sustainability, design, business and development, THE OPEN BOOK will serve as a platform for discussion and a launching pad for new ideas about the future of a global open knowledge movement in a time of rapid technological and societal progress" from source:
