This blog will be used to explore, exchange, and create ideas around 21st century collaborative learning and the environments and tools that make this learning possible--with the big goal of helping teachers and those who prepare teachers redesign teaching and learning for success in the 21st century. In response to a recent post by SETH GODIN, bestselling author and agent of change -where Seth said that the #1 job of the future will be that of online community organizer, Peter Gulka started up People Weavers - the community for community organizers.
While perusing his site I came across a clip called The Art of Community - OSCON 2007 which is a panel discussion led by Dawn Foster, Director of Developer Relations at Jive Software.
Community organizers should view their role as part of the community, not feel they own it. The way to get status within the community will be from love and kindness if the community values are structured in such a way that status is gained through good community citizenship rather than showing off.
Brownie point cards are handed out when organizers catch you being good, this encourages people to do nice things for people within the structure. There was push back that Karma points-- reputation points- are doomed to failure because it is based on extrinsic not intrinsic motivation. The only difference beteen building an online community and building a physical city is the infrastructure.

Really interesting post Sheryl, and obviously, extremely germane to what we're trying to do at Schoolnet.

Because communities of practice are voluntary, to be successful over time they need the ability to generate enough excitement, relevance, and value to attract and engage members. Creating online communities with content experts that correlate to the units of study that are driven by student interest and passion that we deliver in our classrooms. If it is too big, you have to think through how to break down areas and build community for the new subset communities. The people dynamics are all still there, only they are amplified, just as a blind person tends to hear better.
My goal is to find ways to bring in non English speakers into my community and those impacted by the digital divide. If it is just the number of times you post, then a person who is a drag on the community might be considered high status because of frequency of posting.

But of course this is your dissertation focus, so I'd expect some deep thinking on this topic! A lot of the clutter is cleared away and we see and hear people more clearly in an online community. I think their voice would be so powerful in helping to extend the conversations we are all having online-- don't you? And members greet someone when they are new and answer questions and do not just point newbies to a FAQ doc.
How good a job does the community do of taking all the information and redistributing in an effort to give something back? Skip Zilla commented something similar over on the Techlearning cross post of this topic, you might want to check it out.
