Digital Culture, a peeragogy project based on


learning via designing and making artefacts

making a digital culture handbook?

design a seven week course?

make an introductory video?

organize a(n) (un)conference?

personal learning networks (PLNs)

intoduction to PLNs

social media dashboards, RSS readers, Netvibes, Twitter lists, Yahoo! Pipes, Social bookmarks, Diigo, Delicious, Curating tools,, Pearltrees,, Forums, Online networks, facebook, twitter, google+, quora, reddit, blogs, Wordpress, Blogger, Typepad, Tumblr

PLNs:, PLNs are the collections of people and information resources (and relationships with them) that people cultivate in order to form their own learning networks

individual support & guidance

helping to build a personal learning plan (PLP), What do you most need/want to learn about in the time ahead?, What are the best ways you learn, what learning activities will meet your learning needs, what help will you need and how long will it take?, What will you put into your personal portfolio to demonstrate your learning progress and achievements?


as games are an important part in digital culture, should we incorporate gamification elements?, quiz?, badges?, ways to visualize activity (forum postings, blog posts...

does it work?


Which activites have the biggest payoff for learners

Is the learning model a good model?

Which interventions have the biggest payoff for our system?

convening the group

using Twitter, Facebook, Google+, online communities...

initial division of labor (to determine: time commitment)

setting up basic infrastructure, social media classroom model?, aggregator tool?, blog?, social media accounts?, synchronous meeting places?

suggesting topics, course schedule, formats

explaining the project

guiding individual participants

reaching out, telling the world and recruiting new participants

helping new participants

how to help new participants

provide ways for them to orient themselves quickly

providing individual support

dipping in and out

not everybody will be constantly active, solution: archives of raw material, constant updates of the project

pre-existing narratives, workflows (rather different strategies! )

the making of the peeragogy handbook

RheingoldYouniversity courses

MOOCs by Stephen Downes,George Siemens

nature of the project

What skills are required? What skills are you trying to build?

building a PLN and establishing a PLP

connect with others

read, watch, listen and discuss various layers of meaning of texts, audio and video

communicate, establish networks about trends, new developments

learn to look for new stuff, innovation, where few others look, literature, history, youth culture, protest culture

recognize and analyze patterns, new trends, disruptive developments, how to become a futurist?

Who is the audience?

students, computer sciences, literature, history, engineering, education, marketing, design

professionals, trend watchers, designers, fashion people, New node

everyone else

structure of the learning

weekly topics

each co-learner hosts a topic each week, will it become shallow?, organize a panel to enter into an in-depth discussion, milestone based structure, add gamification elements, post a first introductory article, get responses, summary article

establishing a reading list

facilitators suggest topic list

ask to comment, suggest additions, changes (use Google Form)

interview experts (use Google Hangout)

useful outputs

a group blog? a wiki? an e-book? a video?

Charter (Google Docs)





the law of the 'market', will the wiki, blog, etc be visited by others? get comments?, people define success for themselves, this is not a school.

distributed learning

use tag and hashtag to collect individual posts, tweets

use an aggregation tool like gRSShopper

publish weekly overviews of the activities

the facilitators

must be more than one

have face-to-face meetings

use paragogical action reviews

what was supposed to happen

what is happening

what is right or wrong

how should it be done differently in the future

share notes
