1) No PLEs, but informal learning in Real World communities en FLOSSE Posse Free, Libre and Open Source Software in Education
Pauliina Seppälä just published a great presentation telling the story of the Refugee Hospitality Club in Punavuori, Helsinki. It’s a nice example of using digital social networking service (basically Facebook) to organize people to change their own living environment, the Real World, to be a bit more human, pleasant and civic. Check the presentation:
My second example of informal learning in a Real World is a Master Thesis work from our MA in New Media program. Linda Kronman’s Killer Fashion Revolution is a project that uses fashion hacktivism to promote human rights. Check the video:
2) The Ping Pong Effect en T N T — The Network Thinker
This network map shows the key roles played in the recent mortgage meltdown. We start on Main Street and connect the dots out to Wall Street. The links in the network show the exchange of money and value. One of the unanswered questions of the meltdown is: who is at fault? who is responsible for the meltdown?

5) 15 Ideas to Make Your DIY Social Media More Successful en Brainzooming
Introducing a coordinated, vibrant social media effort into an organization depends on more than an “official” group creating content. Ideally multiple and varied people throughout an organization are functioning almost as beat reporters and sharing their individual perspectives on topics relevant to targeted audiences.
How do you get do-it-yourself (DIY) social media support from people already contending with more than full job responsibilities?
Here are 15 tactics you can use to pave the way for success in implementing your social media strategy:
Develop a role description for what a social media team member does in your company.
Provide realistic estimates of how much or how little time a team member will have to use to participate on the team.
Develop and share a social media policy for your company.
Create an internship and recruit a university student to participate in the effort.
Ask people what their talents and areas of interest in social media are and give them appropriate assignments.
Provide step-by-step instructions or basic guidelines to encourage new social media participants.
Have more experienced social media practitioners mentor those just getting started.
Develop your own wiki, blog, or social network community to post reference materials, FAQs, and other relevant information for the team.
