  • The 12 Principles of Collaboration. This is an archived version - there does not appear to be a current version.
    All communities, on or off the web, adhere to basic principles in order to thrive. Mongoose Technology has codified these tenets into the 12 Principles of Collaboration which form the sociological basis of community. The 12 Principles function as a hierarchy. The chief principle, Purpose, is supported by the other 11 principles.
    This seems like a pretty good "test" for a community. How does WikiEducator stack up to these criteria?

WikiEducator articles - access and adoption

-- 13 October 2008 (UTC)

I don't know if this is something new that is needed or something that already exists.

What I would really like to do is "browse" or "graze" through WikiEducator - like flipping through a magazine or a journal. I'm sure there is lots of great stuff, but I have yet to find a good way to see the broad spectrum and stumble upon stuff.

Search isn't the answer, because I don't know what I'm looking for but I'll know it when I see it.

What would be even better would be some over layer / meta data layer - sort of like social bookmarking but just for WE content (at least for now). I would like to hop "sequentially" through all the WE content - start anywhere - see the high level pages or a map that showed number of links, child pages, last update, creation date, tags, categories.

I want to just scroll or click through the list in some orderly but quick way - browse! Like scanning the Sunday New York Times. If I see something of interest, I'd like to note and "rate" it against my criteria - my subject/ classification, remember to revisit, and some general site wide criteria - completeness, readability.

There are a couple of frustrations with WE now, as I see it. I'm not aware of any good, quick way to see everything that is out there. Finding the "good stuff" that is complete enough for consideration as an OER or Learning object is way too hard.

There are also some general WE housekeeping issues - I know, I'm part of the problem. Personal notes, brain dumps, kernels of future projects or topics of interest, or worse - tried it and abandoned pages. This is all interspersed with fine materials that really should be seen and promoted, both within WE and the WE community and to a global audience.

It would be nice if this were easy. I hope there are tools available or forthcoming to address some of these needs. Some of us see ourselves as noders and linkers - reviewing and classifying entries in this great WE resource but lack the tools to be effective.

Are there tools available now? I did review the WE 3.0 page, but I didn't come away with too much on questions like this - too process oriented? Too far down the hierarchy of issues? Are they part of the plan?

Lindeman - adult education, group work, progressive social action - Adult education specifically aims to train individuals for a more fruitful participation in those smaller collective units which do so much to mold significant experience. (Lindeman 1926a: 38)

--Vtaylor 15:05, 1 October 2008 (UTC) This website is for the Society for Computers in Psychology. Their mission statement is to "increase and diffuse knowledge of the use of computers in psychological research."

Jenni on adult learning - frustration with the live session, managing participation, Lindeman 1926

"Adult education specifically aims to train individuals for a more fruitful participation in those smaller collective units which do so much to mold significant experience. "(Lindeman 1926a: 38) -- just a lovely way to put it - yup, that's all I want to do here...

..."This means giving more attention to small groups; it means as much decentralization, diversity and local autonomy as is consistent with order. Indeed, we may well sacrifice order, if enforced externally, for valid difference. Our hopes flow from the simple conviction that diversity is more likely to make life interesting than is conformity, and from the further conviction that active participation in interesting affairs furnishes proper stimulations for intellectual growth." (Lindeman 1926a: 89)

adult education as: A cooperative venture in non-authoritarian, informal learning, the chief purpose of which is to discover the meaning of experience; (Lindeman 1926b quoted by Stewart 1987: 12-13).
