Connective Knowledge & Learning

Connective “knowledge” is not a “thing”, it could be sensed, recognised (as patterns) by individuals, but might be interpreted or perceived differently under different contexts/digital media by each of us. It might be new and tacit knowledge, and so might not be “transferred” as a thing, but could emerge and be understood upon communication, engagement and interaction – which relates to our capacity to navigate and immerge in the networks – learning and thinking with reflection in action with Personal Learning Network (PLN).

How about your interpretation of knowledge?

Power of Community

The power of community is growing, and is based on the interaction of its networkers, where relationship and connections are emerging, with cooperation and collaboration amongst networkers developing, co-creating new communities. Such an ontological phenomena is omnipresent.

Is that the testimony of the wisdom of the crowd, or the collective intelligence?

It’s what the networkers could contribute to the business, the organisation, the community and society that would eventually count. And we are the witness of this era of truly global community based on real and virtual networks.

CCK09 Do you sit or stand when presenting online?

1. Simple questions, but very important for us! I think.

Do you sit down/stand up when conducting an online (Elluminate/UStream) session? Unless you are presenting in an f2f/online conference, I bet you will sit down to do so 100%, correct? Do you sit down/stand up when conducting F2F facilitation/teaching session? Unless it is an activity, I bet you will stand up when explaining a topic.

2. Which one is better for your thinking? Sitting down/standing up when presenting online? For me, I sit down in front of the computer 100%, and so do my thinking 100% when sitting down. How about you? Have you thought about any difference in your thinking when sitting down/standing up?
 3. By standing up, you will get tired/become fatigued within a shorter time than sitting down, is that part of the reason when doing online session (by sitting down) is better? Are there any research done on this? There should be!  But it sounds “common sense”, right?
