Re-reading A New Culture of Learning

A New Culture of Learning by John Seely Brown and Doug Thomas This short book (136 pages) is inspiring. I just read it a second time, something I very rarely do. These paragraphs lept out and grabbed me: Peer-to-Peer Learning In the new culture of learning, people learn through their interaction and participation with one another in [...]

A New Culture of Learning

Climbing the collaboration curve

Jon Husband sent me the link to short post by John Seely Brown, John Hagel, and Lang Davison on The Collaboration Curve. Everybody knows about network effects: the value of a network increases exponentially with the addition of each new node. (Metcalfe’s Law.) Imagine what can happen if those nodes are people. Each new node gives them [...]

Dispositions of Productive Inquiry

In my last post, I referenced John Seely Brown’s mention of dispositions, and I think it’s worthwhile to try to represent and discuss his point here, as it’s relevant to social learning, organizational culture, and success, topics I’ve mentioned in the past. In The Power of Dispositions, JSB & Douglas Thomas (Ubiquity) argue that we need [...]
