Transforming your staff's potential

Sunday, May 31, 2009 Tidbits: Social Design

Here is the periodic sampling from my favorites list. This time I chose the tag "Social Design." This is what I found I have:

Social Architecture: A definition and other basics, from "Incredibly Dull."

Future Learning Landscapes -Transforming Pedagogy through Social Software: From "Journal of Online Education," an article by Catherine McLoughlin and Mark J. W. Lee which discusses the "new pedagogical landscape' made possible by the emergence of Web 2.0 social software, which allows users to become active contributors. Through a discussion of emerging learning scenarios enabled by social software, McLoughlin and Lee posit that future learning environments must capitalize on the potential of Web 2.0 by combining social software tools with connectivist pedagogical models. The combination produces what the authors call Pedagogy 2.0, a model of learning in which learners are empowered to participate, learn, and create knowledge in ways that are personally meaningful and engaging.
