Folksonomies, memes and misunderstanding

Learning with e's

I responded (as you do) with my own version: "A folksonomist: one who organises information in ways that make sense to his/her own community of practice or interest." Taking issue with it in his blogpost he says: "A folksonomy loses its qualities as a folksonomy once you have someone 'organising' it, and will quickly become a taxonomy." The Holistic Web blogpost Taxonomy vs Folksonomy says it all really - a taxonomy is predictable, whereas a folksonomy is flexible.

Museums and Folksonomies

Skilful Minds

A folksonomy results from distinct ways of organizing cultural categories developed from the tags, keywords, people use to describe specific content, or services, on the web. The emphasis in folksonomies is on organizing data, not making friends. Tags: Customer Communities Social Networks Web 2.0 social networking

It has led to the development and evolution of web-based communities, hosted services, and web applications. Includes social-networking sites, video-sharing sites, wikis, blogs, mashups and folksonomies.

Theories for the digital age: Postmodern perspectives

Learning with 'e's

The community decides what is important to learn, so in effect, the community becomes the curriculum (Cormier, 2008). The colonisation of knowledge spaces by communities is self sustaining, and in Deleuze and Guattari’s terms, we see individuals assuming the roles of nomads, maintaining a constant state of becoming and transformation. 2008) Rhizomatic Education: Community as Curriculum.

Learning pathways

Instead of imposing his own ideas onto the community, the architect had crowd sourced his design. The same might be said about the way communities form, create their preferred ways of communication and decide their priorities. Dave Cormier - one of the foremost contributors to rhizomatic learning theory - takes this concept deeper into digital territory by equating rhizomatic learning to 'community as curriculum'.

I hope to explore some of the possibilities and potential of tools such as blogs, wikis, microblogs and aggregators, and will also explore mashups, social tagging, and concepts such as 'wisdom of crowds' and folksonomies. I'm going to try to place all of this in the context of higher education, student engagement and communities of practice.

Challenge to Learn

After all when it comes to computers and the web most of the learning community are still non native speakers. And if that is not enough they connected these two to Ontologies, Taxonomies, Folksonomies and controled vocabularies. Today was incredible, my best conference day ever (and I have been to a few conferences). In the morning I attended 4 great sessions, the conference ended at noon. After that I walked to a mall and did some shopping.

Next generation learning

Social media are enabling learners everywhere to connect and work together with each other, forming convenient communities and networks of shared interest. has seen as shift toward user generated content, and the emergent property of folksonomies. Here I do not refer to any hard artificial intelligence model of computation, but rather a description of the manner in which networked, intelligent systems respond to the needs of individual learners within vast communities of practice.

The architecture of learning

Learning with 'e's

This content is generated not only by the experts, but also increasingly by the learners themselves, and tends to be organised by the community rather than by the experts. The emergent properties of content organisation are folksonomies, and are the product of loose organised that is bottom-up rather than top-down. One of the characteristics of Web 2.0, according to the man who coined the phrase, is to be found in its architecture. As far as Tim O'Reilly is concerned, Web 2.0

Parabolic learning

Learning with 'e's

We have previously explored a number of learning theories, new learning technologies, concepts around crowdsourcing, wisdom of crowds, folksonomies and user generated content, Web 2.0, I then tweeted (and encouraged the students to do the same) a few messages to the online educator community to ask them their views on the question of whether MOOCs would eventually replace traditional forms of education.

Twitter ye not

Learning with e's

Even if you want Twitter groups, Twitter is working on this "feature" as a top priority after stabilization, so it would be better to wait until the official implementation arrives rather than Balkanize the Twitter community with a plethora of Facebook-style groups. We want folksonomy not heirarchy. This time yesterday I searched Twitter Groups to see if anyone had created an Edublog group I could join. I didn't find one. So I created one myself called Edubloggers.

The Learning Circuits

the collaborative learning environments sourcebook was one of the first resources i use when i began learning about communities of practice. 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.

Schultz and Leonard discuss how Premier achieves its mission, “to analyze and share knowledge nationwide to improve the health of communities,” by sharing clinical knowledge and experience across 1,700 not-for-profit member hospitals and health services experts. Within the government and military, Communities of Practice have proven to be a highly effective way to drive social learning for organizations.
