How women organize social networks different from men

How women organize social networks different from men | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Superpositions of social networks, such as communication, friendship, or trade networks, are called multiplex networks, forming the structural backbone of human societies. Novel datasets now allow quantification and exploration of multiplex networks. Here we study gender-specific differences of a multiplex network from a complete behavioral dataset of an online-game society of about 300,000 players. On the individual level females perform better economically and are less risk-taking than males. Males reciprocate friendship requests from females faster than vice versa and hesitate to reciprocate hostile actions of females. On the network level females have more communication partners, who are less connected than partners of males. We find a strong homophily effect for females and higher clustering coefficients of females in trade and attack networks. Cooperative links between males are under-represented, reflecting competition for resources among males. These results confirm quantitatively that females and males manage their social networks in substantially different ways.

Is Collaboration the New Greenwashing?

Is Collaboration the New Greenwashing? | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Collaboration is the new "it" trend in business strategy circles these days. Everyone is talking about it. But, does collaboration deliver on its promise? Or is it at risk of simply becoming a new form of "greenwashing" as companies talk the talk, but don't walk the walk?

Walking Talk = KSF


Walking the collaborative talk is a Key Success Factor. "What do you think," have there ever been 4 more loaded words in the English language? We've all been in the meeting when someone who really doesn't want to know the answer asks that question. 

We get the culture we create. If your company is open, honest and supportive the answer to the most loaded question in the world will be collaboration. Collaboration doesn't mean we always love each other. Collaboration can be contentious and messy, but it beats the alternative. 

Recently I wrote about The Commons Revolution (http://www.atlanticbt.com/blog/the-commons-revolution/ ) and created a Commons Revolution feed on Scoop.it (http://www.scoop.it/t/collaborative-competition-revolution ). Collaboration becomes MORE likely when there are large support systems such as The Commons. We do the right thing because it is the right thing to do.

All that sounds great, but the rubber still meets the road when someone asks, "What do you think". I hope you work in an environment where such a question is matched with messy contentious collaboration since that is when life is most fun and your process most aligned with the future’s undeniable trend.

Leadership is about connecting and collaborating. The number 1 slill identified by IBM's Global 2013 CEO study is collaboration. It is also one of the top five comoetencies for CPAs in the future from the CPA Horizons 2025 report. Sharing knowledge has been my experience with social media as a tool for sharing and collaboration. It has created that "serendipitous insight' that allows me to connect the dots more easily and make great friends in the process.                                                                                                      I like this quote in the article, "As we share our knowledge more openly with each other, our world becomes more connected, which can lead to greater recognition of our diversity and our common humanity – ultimately leading to greater understanding, and hopefully a world of greater harmony."



Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, April 3, 2013 6:14 PM

Does the Internet Make You Smarter?

Does the Internet Make You Smarter? | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
Amid the silly videos and spam are the roots of a new reading and writing culture, says Clay Shirky.

Digital media have made creating and disseminating text, sound, and images cheap, easy and global. The bulk of publicly available media is now created by people who understand little of the professional standards and practices for media.

Instead, these amateurs produce endless streams of mediocrity, eroding cultural norms about quality and acceptability, and leading to increasingly alarmed predictions of incipient chaos and intellectual collapse.

1.8 billion

Estimated number of Internet users world-wide

But of course, that's what always happens. Every increase in freedom to create or consume media, from paperback books to YouTube, alarms people accustomed to the restrictions of the old system, convincing them that the new media will make young people stupid. This fear dates back to at least the invention of movable type.

As Gutenberg's press spread through Europe, the Bible was translated into local languages, enabling direct encounters with the text; this was accompanied by a flood of contemporary literature, most of it mediocre. Vulgar versions of the Bible and distracting secular writings fueled religious unrest and civic confusion, leading to claims that the printing press, if not controlled, would lead to chaos and the dismemberment of European intellectual life.

MGI suggest that by fully implementing social technologies, companies have an opportunity to raise the productivity of interaction workers—high-skill knowledge workers, including managers and professionals—by 20 to 25 percent.

Just finished chapter 8 in High Impact Instruction by Jim Knight.   To summarize:  

 

Cooperative learning is any structured, sytematic learning activity in which groups of learners work together to achieve a common goal.  It is a high impact strategy because it:

 

ensures engagement

facilitates formative assessment

facilitates differentiated instruction

allows students to collaboratively construct knowledge

develops students' communication skills

prepares students for life after school

 

It is most successful when teachers:

 

understand learning structure

create positive interdependence

teach expectations

teach social skills

determine optimum makeup of groups

manage time successfully

use an attention signal
