Intelligent Crowds

Groups, Networks and Collectives

Once upon a time... teacher content learner (after Terry Anderson)

There is a new view of learning teacher many learner content

What kind of Many? collective network me group

What is a collective? algorithm feeds crowd behaviour drives influences or controls interface

play time! • think of/visit social sites you know • identify collective processes • algorithm • interface

Ten Design Principles Adaptability 1. Sociability 6. Stigmergy 2. 7. Constraint Evolvability 8. Context 3. 9. Connectivity Parcellation 4. 10. Scale Trust 5.

Adaptability • build from small parts and mash-up • rapid development methodologies • use standards like OpenSocial, RSS, FOAF, OpenID, OAuth, JSON etc.... • Control with individuals, not teachers/ administrators/programmers

Stigmergy

Stigmergy • It will happen - use it • Signposts, not fence-posts

Evolvability • Deferred design • Different scales • Exaptions • Replication with variation • Death as a great teacher

parcellation

play time! • how can we put texture in our learning landscapes?

the problem of evil

trust and privacy

Trust • Soft security vs hard security • Systems security • Controllable security • Who’s who? • How does it work?

Sociability • Awareness of others • Multiple channels • Not necessarily in the same piece of software

Pedagogy • Meaningful signposts • If you design a mountain you will get mountain goats • If you design an ocean you will get fish • What is the shape and physics of an educational environment?

Context • A truly self-organised environment can evolve into anything • Institutional contexts • The broader environment • People wishing to learn

Meta-principles • Scale • connectivity • Connectivity

Big and things small

Things that change context

Things that come first

Cool tools but...

del.icio.us is cool but... • single dimension of metadata • limited interoperability • commercial monolith • limited parcellation • very limited trust model

del.icio.us is cool but... • single dimension of metadata • limited interoperability • commercial monolith • limited parcellation • very limited trust model

Facebook is cool but... • single layer of hierarchy (the group) • extendible but not very interoperable • simple one-dimensional metadata • limited trust model • everyone is a friend or not • commercial monolith

Ning is brilliant but... • not distributed - single site • relatively coarse privacy/trust control

Elgg is a bit better... • richer trust model • educational context • institutional control (?) • why does everyone have to be your friend?

Using them all... • NetVibes • Sniperoo • Grazr • iGoogle • Widgets and Gadgets
