From the ashes of our technology-plagued Dec. 1 session rose an amazing interaction with a Korean language translator, +Elaine Bucheger! She's now on the Google Drive folder and proceeding to work her way along in understanding what Peeragogy is "all about." And she's actually read the whole book! How many of us can say that? 

So on Monday, Dec. 8, we'll again dive in for hive editing on the Quick Start Guide for the Peeragogy Handbook! which you can find for free online at http://peeragogy.org and purchase on Amazon.

HINT: Purchases help  fund our work, so please consider buying a copy. And if you've read the book, please consider writing a review. We presently have NO reviews on the Amazon site, and though we've had plenty of kudos for the books and even an award, that looks bad.

In the meantime, please view Handbook illustrator  aMAZEing visual notes from the the Nov. 3 session (11/3/14) http://goo.gl/opWiad

And you can always contribute to the Version 3 brainstorm/organize doc: http://goo.gl/hoJXKH

We'll be hive-learning the art of starting a Google+ Hangout from a G+ page, promoting it, inviting people, and locating it on the YouTube channel.

Operating Principles for the Peeragogy Accelerator

A living project
~~ We build living projects that can continuously evolve. 
~~ We measure our progress by things actually done, and the process by which they are done.  
~~ Although we can, and do, adopt concrete goals (for example, to write a book or collaborate on this paper), we do not expect our work to be final. Every contribution leads to improvement.
~~ In the Accelerator, people can branch, fork and merge other projects, as they might with source code in a Git repository.  Each version and thread will have its own life.

In this Accelerator, we'll be exploring the MIT Media Lab's Unhangouts platform where we have a beta testing account. For this exercise it would be good to have a healthy number of participants - like dozens - so please invite others. Developer +Srishti Sethi will be participating.

Let's hope the magic works. Here's what to do:
1) RSVP for this event. Make sure you have circled and +1'd the +Peeragogy Handbook page.
2) If you want to be on the panel, RSVP two hours prior to start time. Arrive 30 minutes prior to the event and wait for the panel invite notification.
3) To participate in just the breakout sessions, go directly to https://unhangout.media.mit.edu/event/peeraccel. Invite others who might be interested. Listen to the live intro video in the lobby at start time.
4) Jump into a breakout room and choose a facilitator. Take notes if possible. If there are enough people participating, feel free to jump from one room to another. 
5) Our hangout will broadcast in the Unhangout lobby at that URL from about 1-1:15 EST.
6) Participants can go into the breakout rooms when the HOA ends, at about 1:20 EST.
7) At about 2:00 pm EST, the breakout rooms will close and participants gather in the lobby. We'll reopen the Hangout and invite facilitators of the breakout sessions into the panel to report on each session. 
8) The Hangout and the Unhangout will end at 2 pm EST.
9) At least we hope it works like that. The lobby seems stable, so return there when in doubt and give a status in the chat.

From the Unhangout website:
Unhangout is an open source platform for running large scale online un-conferences. We use Google Hangouts to create as many small sessions as needed, and help users find others with shared interests.

Think of it as a classroom with an infinite number of breakout sessions. Each event has a landing page, which we call the lobby. When participants arrive, they can see who else is there and chat with each other. The hosts can do a video welcome and introduction that gets streamed into the lobby. Participants then break out into smaller sessions (up to 10 people per session) for in-depth conversations, peer-to-peer learning, and collaboration on projects. UnHangouts are community-based learning instead of top-down information transfer.
