Reflecting on #socialartists and #change11
Nancy White, Full Circle Associates, November 9, 2011.

You won't want to miss this retrospective post from last week's guest, Nancy White. The post is a rich tapestry of links to blog comments, background readings and discussion of last week's themes. She reflects first on the process of participating in the #Change11 course, and then expands on the idea of "social artistry" that caught out collective imagination during her week. She traces the concept back to its origins in the work of Etienne Wenger and quotes on the topic at length from David Wilcox. She also draws out the closely associated concept of habitus, drawing from Vanessa Vaile, who said, "I see strong traces of habitus in Digital Habitats." According to Wikipedia, habitus is "the set of socially learnt dispositions, skills and ways of acting, that are often taken for granted, and which are acquired through the activities and experiences of everyday life." But if you really want more, you'll want to see Bourdieu's The Logic of Practice. See also this post on setting norms. [Comment]

Ριζωματική γνώση: πως μεγαλώνει αυτή η ρίζα;

Learning that doesn’t suck
brainysmurf1234, Connecting the dots
                On my drive home tonight, I saw an ad for a radio station that said “”turn up the rock…turn down the suck”.  What a perfect way to describe Dave Cormier’s live session during #change11 today.  Dave continued Nancy’s example from last week and cranked up the rock [...] [Link] Wed, 09 Nov 2011 01:36:46 +0000 [Comment]

One course ends, but the cooperation is just beginning
rolandlegrand, MixedRealities
Imagine you explore in group wild and exotic lands. After six weeks the journey is over, and it’s time to say goodbye. Often that is a sad experience – just sharing the same experiences creates a bond between people, and when they leave, one feels a void. This was what I felt after six [Link] Tue, 08 Nov 2011 22:07:28 +0000 [Comment]

Social Artist doubts - process and "feel-good"
brainysmurf, 120 - Educational Technology - Insights, November 8, 2011.

Thanks for sharing a counterpoint to the 'feel good' comments that have blossomed after last week. I hope others who didn't enjoy it will share their thoughts as well. Personally, I'm glad that Nancy shook up the format and didn't "share a paper" or present a standard deck. Rather, she shared herself and she created a space for all anyone who wanted to observe and/or pick up a digital pen and participate. She also created a period of silence that was so rare in the age of web conferences that it has stuck with me for over a week. I'd like more of this approach, [Comment]
