LOOOL....  Peeragogy in Hacktion!  As you will see from our CVs,” the group writes, “we are eminently suited to fill this position. Indeed, we believe that by job-sharing this position, we would be able to do a better job than any one person could do—and the salary is certainly ample enough to meet the needs of all four of us. Indeed,” they continue, “for many of us one-fourth of your proposed minimum salary would double or triple our current wage.” They are quick to point out the advantages of a four-for-one deal, quipping: “We will even share one academic gown.”

Taking it a little further, apparently that rate of pay ($368,500USD) would also cover tuition fee for students to take 753 courses.  Or, say, 150 students at five courses each.  http://www.registrarsoffice.ualberta.ca/en/Costs-Tuition-Fees/Undergraduate-Tuition/FallWinter-Tuition-for-Canadian-Citizens-and-Permanent-Residents.aspx   One wonders whether the 150 students in question view this as money well spent or not.

Let's revise the Peeragogy Manifesto we've been working on into a letter to send to people who are likely to be interested in what we're doing.  This will force us to clarify the message.

Questions?  - 
 
Relevant to my own interests - and perhaps to that of others here, like newcomer +Kurt Vega.  Actually, that's a good question - who else here would self-identify as a developer?

+Joe Corneli I identify as a "developer-in-the-making". I've spent a solid 3 years gaining all of the skills I would need to be a developer. I probably still have another 5-10 years to go to actually BE a developer, to gain more of the required skills, knowledge, and experience, but when I started learning computer programming and theoretical computer science, that was what I had in mind. I actually want to go back to school to do a degree in Electrical Engineering, to be quite honest.

Haven't had time to read this, but it looks worthwhile. Thanks to +Giorgio Bertini for posting.
 
Metacognition is a required cognitive ability to achieve deep and meaningful learning that must be viewed from both an individual and social perspective. Recently, the transition from the earliest individualistic models to an acknowledgement of metacognition as socially situated and socially constructed has precipitated the study of metacognition in collaborative learning environments. This study presents the results of research to develop and validate a metacognitive construct for use in collaborative learning environments. The metacognitive construct was developed using the Community of Inquiry framework as a theoretical guide and tested by applying qualitative research techniques in previous research. It has been tested in this research by way of developing a metacognition questionnaire. The results indicate that in order to better understand the structure and dynamics of metacognition in emerging collaborative learning environments, we must go beyond individual approaches to learning and consider metacognition in terms of complementary self and co-regulation that integrates individual and shared regulation.

+Alex Gagnon I'd be happy to work with you on this!  The best foundational reference in my view is Schoenfeld's "What's all the fuss about metacognition" http://www.colorado.edu/physics/EducationIssues/T&LPhys/PDFs/Schoenfeld_metacognition.pdf - I do indeed have some of my own ideas here but not much written down yet.  Maybe we could start by discussing that paper?

... the flexibility to make teacher employment decisions driven by the needs of their students ...
 
Los Angeles Superior Court judge Rolf M. Treu has ruled that California's teacher tenure laws represent an unconstitutional violation of the California Constitution's equal protection clause guaranteeing each student equal access to education.

It's virtually impossible to find any neutral coverage of this story; the LexisNexis story below is as close as I could get. Some overtly partisan sites include:
http://studentsmatter.org/ (plaintiffs)
http://www.cta.org/ (defendants)
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/03/16/1284248/-Vergara-v-California-The-most-dangerous-lawsuit-you-probably-haven-t-heard-of (biased, liberal viewpoint)
http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-California/2014/04/29/Vergara-Case-Challenges-Teacher-Tenure (biased, conservative viewpoint)

My concern is not for public school education; that's an important battle, but a separate battle, which lies outside of my expertise. What worries me is that, simply put, this is a sneak attack against academic tenure. If teachers unions lose this round, you can be sure that David Welch and his friends will go after public universities next. And while private universities are probably immune to this particular constitutional challenge, these guys are persistent and I'm sure they'll think of something. Moreover, the institution of tenure itself would be greatly diminished if it were restricted primarily to private institutions.

Tenure isn't perfect, but it has served us educators well for over a century. I'm not willing to throw the whole system out just because it isn't 100% perfect.

About this community

What does any group of peers, or self-learners, need to know in order to self-organize learning about any topic? The answers are in our Peeragogy Handbook (peeragogy.org) a volunteer-created and maintained resource that individuals can use to bootstrap peer learning and peer educational projects. "Peeragogy in Action" is devoted to improving the handbook -- and helping YOU develop and apply successful peer learning techniques. Welcome! #peeragogy #edtech #education #connectivism #edutech #onlinelearning

I can think of a fourth step, also very simple. Can you guess what I'm thinking, or so you have a tip of your own?

I was also thinking of 4) teach someone; or 5) learn with peers (friends).

Hi. Some of you might actually know Harlan T. Wood. I haven't seen him around lately, but in any case, a while back he wrote this piece. It truly changed my life, it seriously was a life-changing, life-altering moment for me. And so I have to ask, What if we checked the Commons into Github? This is very serious. How many participants in Peeragogy have Github accounts? Instead of writing here on Google-Plus, we could be "checking" it all in Github or other similar git-based system/service/site. Think about it. http://www.harlantwood.net/pub/What_if_We_Checked_the_Commons_into_Github/

+Helene Finidori  Basically, what I see, with regard to any 'Commons', is the rules/rulesets that go with them, that have to do with its preservation, conservation, maintenance, stewardship, etc. What I see is more and more people talking ABOUT the Commons, but rare are those who actually talk about the practicality of preserving it.

Also, in my book, there IS no 'Global Commons'. There is no 'Commons' that has 7 billion people 'entitled parties'. I can't think of a single thing that would be a commons with 7 billion entitled parties, unless you want to say that 'oxygen' is a Global Commons?

That wouldn't make any sense, at least not to me. Oxygen is an element, it would like trying to put a copyright on helium.

So to me there are countless 'commons', which always apply only to limited groups of individuals I call 'entitled parties'. Even the 'Documentary Heritage' of humankind is NOT a Global Commons. The history of Mesopotamia does NOT belong to ME. My history, the history of my family lines, the history of Québec, its culture and language, now THAT Documentary Heritage BELONGS TO ME - to me and all my compatriots.

Boundaries have to be drawn. There is no 'Universal Human Commons' except maybe our very humanity itself, which is an intangible. Commons are real physical things, not metaphysical concepts. The rules and rulesets that we set up to preserve 'common ground' is the most important thing, more important than the 'common ground' itself.

That's where it gets technical. You can't call the Internet a 'commons', or call the electromagnetic spectrum a 'commons'. These things are not 'commons' in my book. Technologies too are not 'commons'. Only a very limited number of things can be considered commons. They have to essentially be 'Common'. Sounds redudant, and it is, but that's how it works. There is nothing 'common' to ME and some guy living in Afghanistan.. We're not living in the same communities, we're not using the same resources or witness to the same resource flows.

That's the most important part, the setting up of proper boundaries. Otherwise, all commons will continue to be lost forever.

The 'common human population history' that goes back 7 million years is not necessarily a 'Commons' either. It has to be something living and physical and Right Here / Right Now, that we are using. A museum collection might be a 'commons', but anyway, I think I've tried to make my point.

The hard part is remembering the rules. I swear to the Lord Almighty, that's the hard part. It's a problem of SUCCESSION that I hope to start writing about. The problem is with the SUCCESSION through the ages. Humanity has its own 'Cultural Continuum' if you will, a continuous succession of individuals... through locations, through resource use, through political, economic, and social organization.. Our task is to help mend two ends together when a 'cut' or 'break' occurs in the continuum...

The ancient wisdom literature helped us survive. It's all about Survivance, and what I call Succession, i.e. preserving the documentary heritage, the age-old wisdom, the 'inner light of wisdom', Prometheus' 'Fire', for those that succeed us. It's always about those that succeed us, and often we are even succeeding one another... and must be careful to mend the cuts in the cultural continuum... which we haven't done for the most part.

So a work of history is required, of archaeology, of related sciences and philosophies. I'm doing my part. What is your part, and what is the verse you would like to add to this ???

"Heart of Gold" is a song by Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young. Released from the 1972 album Harvest, it is so far Young's only U.S. #1 single.

This Monday's meeting went "pear shaped" (hate when that happens).  Trying again on Wednesday!

Introduce yourself  - 
 
Hello! I watched a talk by +Joe Corneli at the Elinor Ostrom Workshop on the Commons, and am excited to find this group. I'm currently leading an initiative to develop data standards and open platforms for community resource directory systems -- see: openreferral.org -- and it's only in small part a technology problem. It's much more of a challenge of education and collaborative learning.

Here's an essay I wrote on this topic - beyondtransparency.org/chapters/part-5/towards-a-community-data-commons/ 

And here's a tool for a different kind of technology project that I've used and now want to adapt for our context (hopefully with guidance from the materials and people I find in this network): https://commotionwireless.net/docs/cck/planning/design-your-network-every-network-tells-story/

Looking forward!

Hi +Greg Bloom this reminds me of the idea from +Paola Ricaurte Quijano and +George Brett, that Peeragogy should be used to make a collection of handbooks, rather than just one handbook.  Already the Beyond Transparency book is an example (or quite close to an example) -- and the "Every Network Tells a Story" game is very squarely in the How-To genre.  There are probably a ton of other great resources we could (and should) collect into a nice meta-How-to.

(The Handbook series is mentioned here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1DbRS9y51qZMOJ8-TSDToKU_4opuLh9CdUQWXYHEeEUY/edit by the way, a short brief we wrote for the FLOK project, although we ended up submitting something different.)
