    [Examples, Practice] Learning is Connecting
    For example, there are how-to videos on YouTube, learning-oriented chats on Twitter, study groups on Facebook, and professional communities on LinkedIn. The nature of professional education is shifting away from business schools and towards communities of practice. Change Agents Worldwide , composed of free-agents and salaried professionals in large organizations, is an example of this new kind of learning community.

    [Examples, Practice] Tinkering and Playing with Knowledge
    I love the idea of tinkering and find it central to the practice of stewarding technology for ourselves, our communities and networks. It is for me a deeply ingrained practice of learning both by myself and with others, particularly in my communities of practice. . The geodesic dome is a great example of a technology whose meaning was defined– and redefined– by users.). . Should we be paying more attention to our tinkering practices and patterns?

    We have talked throughout this series on communities of practice about “content.&# From a communities of practice perspective, it is important for two reasons. “Members of a community of practice need to interact with each other as well as produce and share artifacts such as documents, tools, and links to resources. There is also the value of the content to other learners and communities of practice. Let’s look at tagging as a specific example.

    Let’s break this down by using an example. Based on the example’s objectives, the key metrics could be maintaining the amount of data being processed, and decreasing the number of “inaccurate information” reports. In this example, volunteers must be able to ask accurate questions, know how to fill out data reports, and do it all pretty quickly. Knowing how to accurately fill out a form is a knowledge-based task requiring a limited amount of practice.

    Just as actors have a repertoire of frames, they have "multiple, sometimes conflicting, interests, only some of which [in the CommCorp example] were relevant in a particular decision context. Where frames about a decision dont align within the organization, actors engage in framing practices to increase the resonance of their own frames and mobilize action in a desired direction.

    The core themes in this workshop were around social aspects of learning at work: narrating our work for others; communities of practice & understanding networks. For example, when I learn informally in a social network, it is social learning as well. A major difference between communities of practice and work teams is that the former are voluntary.

    [Examples, Practice] adapting to perpetual beta
    Trust emerges when these principles are put in practice. Emerging practices need to be developed while staying engaged with complex systems. Many traditional management practices assume the business system is complicated and understandable, given enough time to analyze it. Knowing what is complicated, and what is complex, can help the organization develop the appropriate work practices. Practices such as working out loud help build trust.

    [Examples, Practice] From hierarchies to wirearchies
    My experience is that communities of practice can help make the transition from hierarchies to networks, or as Jon Husband describes the resulting structure; wirearchy. Communities of practice, both internal and external; can be safe places between highly focused work and potentially chaotic social networking. Communities of practice can link collaboration and cooperation, and help weave the organization and its people into a wirearchy.

    To make a learning experience engaging, you need some additional things: knowing why this is of interest and relevance to practitioners, and putting that into the introduction, examples, and practice. With practice, that’s going to come with only a marginal overhead. Second, the practice is distributed across more intriguing contexts. This means that the practice will have higher motivation.

    Most best practices are self-evident, whereas the problems that consume our time and efforts are usually complex. Instead of looking for best or good practices, we should take the time and money to invest in an experiment. However, examples of emergent practices can inform us, as long as we see them as guide posts, not rule books. What works for one organization often will not work for another. There are too many variables, and the environment keeps changing.

    This lack of understanding is a major barrier to adopting social business concepts and practices. We need to constantly develop emergent practices. The examples of how to support informal learning do not require expensive technology or detailed needs analyses. The five informal learning methods described in yesterday’s post on Learning in the Workplace have one thing in common. They are all relatively simple.
