In praise of cooperation without coordination: Clay Shirky at TEDGlobal 2012 Amy Cuddy must be proud: Clay Shirky walks on stage and promptly strikes a power pose. Then he tells us of a 9-year-old Scottish girl who lives about 50 miles from here. Martha Payne started the foodblog NeverSeconds, for which she took her camera into school to document her lunches, using metrics such as “pieces of hair found in food.” First, she acquired dozens, then hundreds, then thousands of readers.
Sensemaking In information science the term is most often written as "sense-making." In both cases, the concept has been used to bring together insights drawn from philosophy, sociology, and cognitive science (especially social psychology). Sensemaking research is therefore often presented as an interdisciplinary research programme. Sensemaking and information systems Dervin (1983, 1992, 1996) has investigated individual sensemaking, developing theories underlying the "cognitive gap" that individuals experience when attempting to make sense of observed data. Because much of this applied psychological research is grounded within the context of systems engineering and human factors, there exists a strong desire for concepts and performance to be measurable and for theories to be testable.

We’re often doing things that are automatic, that require very little cognitive processing. Teachers Training International – Helping you motivate, manage and engage your students One of the downsides of teaching is that in the process of educating our students about facts and figures we are also teaching our students how to think. For most teachers their initial response would be to not give this a second thought. However I wonder if this might be one of the greatest long term problems that education is facing right now.

Simply put, Web 1.0 represents the web in the early nineties and the even through early 21st century. It was all about publishers.
