#40years of educational technology: Social media

Learning with e's

Other tools such as wikis, blogs and podcasts also began to be used in education, at first tentatively, and then as embedded features in various programmes of study. I also conducted research into the use of blogs in a number of educational contexts, which also yielded several publications.

The changing Web

This is number 4 in the series of blog posts entitled 'Shaping Education for the Future.' has spawned concepts such as folksonomy, ‘Darwikianism’ and the ‘wisdom of the crowds’ (Kamel Boulos et al, 2006). More on this in future posts on this blog.

The architecture of learning

Learning with e's

Blogs rely not only on content, but on users, and ultimately on the dialogue that ensues between all those who read the content. The emergent properties of content organisation are folksonomies, and are the product of loose organised that is bottom-up rather than top-down.

Learning theories for the digital age

I blogged about some of the new theories that seem appropriate as explanatory frameworks for learning in a digital age. I pointed out recently that many of the older theories of pedagogy were formulated in a pre-digital age.

Folksonomies: A User-Driven Approach to Organizing Content - UI. Folksonomies, a new user-driven approach to organizing information, may help alleviate some of the challenges of taxonomies. Sites with folksonomies include two basic capabilities: they let users add "tags" to information and they create navigational links out of those tags to help users find and organize that information later.

eLearning Topics

Tony Karrer

For example, when I view my blog's content through the eLearning Learning lens , it shows me that relative to other sources of content in the system, I tend to talk about: eLearning 2.0 (130) Folksonomy (11) Knowledge (233) Off-shore (7) Leadership (44) Creative Commons (16) Back when we still had hope that folksonomy (tagging) would make sense of the flood of content. I've done a few posts in the past that take a look at the topics that are Hot Topics in Training.

Remember when people thought that stuff like folksonomies and tagging and wikis and blogs and micro-blogging and activity streams and GAMES would NEVER get inside the corporate firewall? I think I have a Pinterest account. I may have pinned something at some time.

Bottom-Line Performance

Our blog topic for the month of January will be Web 2.0 Instead of one expert categorizing information in taxonomy, lots of people can contribute to that categorization with folksonomy. Welcome back! I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year, and is feeling ready for 2010.

Tags, Search Effectiveness, Personal Benefits

Tony Karrer

I personally have found that because I've switched to Yahoo MyWeb that has full-text search across my bookmarked pages, I've come to use tags mostly to represent two things: Actions - I tag items with "blogthis" if I plan to come back an write it up in a blog. So for me, it's not quite the folksonomy effect that most people talk about, but based on these articles, I'm starting to think that's what other people are finding as well

Tom Wambeke's (KATHO, Belgium) session entitled 'Educational Blogging: in search of a general taxonomy', concluded that folksonomies were less hierarchical and more appropriate measures of blogs. I followed as the third speaker, with my session on wikis and collaborative learning, and the session was capped off by an overview of social software from Antonio Huertas (Open University of Catalonia, Spain) who dealt with 'Wikis, blogs and tagging in education'.

Why RSS and Folksonomies Are Becoming So Big. An RSS feed is a blog distilled to its core essence. It's the better blog. If you look at the output of an RSS feed in a reader, you'll see no comments, no trackbacks and (for the most part) no design. It's pure data. Deep, Dark Secrets of His and Her Brains. Sandra Witelson had studied scores of brains looking for gender differences. Then she found one that made a difference: Einstein's. Google vs. Yahoo: Clash of cultures.

Clive on Learning

In fact Peter wrote what was probably the definitive book on the subject, Information Architecture for the World Wide Web , which I vaguely recall reading some time back (I find that now I blog a review of any book I read, I remember much more, which for me is an invaluable side effect of blogging). The alternative, of course, is a bottom-up effort whereby users apply their own tags to online content, evolving in the process what are now commonly known as folksonomies.

Of course, what I write on my blog is not institutionally checked, which is different to a publication in a scientific journal which may go through two blind peer reviews.

It was very interesting to watch as people joined the group, shared their profiles and blogs, and then began to link to other like-minded people they didn't even know existed. We want folksonomy not heirarchy.

And this, recently from Mike Prokopeak talking to Lance Dublin about a third domain: Formal learning typically refers to structured learning events and programs, while informal refers to unstructured learning that happens outside the bounds of traditional learning events, whether it’s over the water cooler, in the field or through a blog or discussion forum.

but what struck me as worth blogging about was that i rediscovered this resource through practicing one of the first forms of informal learning that the internet spawned - web surfing. before rss, news aggregators, blogrolls, technorati tags and folksonomies, most "webbies" would wander around from site to site, following whatever link caught their imagination. i just had the experience that i'm sure happens to many of us. i was reunited with a long lost favorite website.
