Create beautiful maps that bring the big picture to life, allowing you to see your data and problems more clearly. We call it 100% problem-solving complexity-busting goodness. See for yourself how Kumu can help you make a bigger impact today.
Map and Connect Elements & Connections. Whether those elements are people, companies, issues, funders, or any other factors in a problem you care about — Kumu has the flexibility to handle it all.
Add Context with Tags & Attributes. After building out your map, you’ll want to add rich context information to both the elements and their connections. Track whatever’s important to you. With Kumu, you’re in the driver’s seat.
Bring Your Data to Life with Perspectives. Now you’re ready to create beautiful and insightful maps. Kumu makes it easy to extract insights from your data by allowing you to adjust colors, sizes, shadows, haloes, bullseyes, patterns, widths, arrows, and more (whew!) based on the underlying data. Choose whether to view all of your data, or add a filter to focus on what truly matters.
We will build an open source distributed network of issue-related learning and collaborative environments incorporating tools that will enable data collection, reporting, curated knowledge base, news streams, collective action, possibilities navigation, deliberation, visualization, social graph, evaluation and reputation/trust-net, as illustrated in this design map.
Catalyst Map (CM) will make use of Google’s open source tools. Google News, Sites, Documents, Calenders, and YouTube will help quest creators and contributors to organize and facilitate the logistics of quests. Users will also sync their profiles with Facebook and LinkedIn to add multiple layers for networking and sharing.
The project builds on the network created through the production of the award winning short film, ‘Coalition of the Willing’. We have 1100+ followers on Twitter and 5000+ on Facebook who are anticipating the CM system.
In this paper we argue that it might be useful for educational institutions to actively explore alternative frameworks such as complexity theory, communities of practice, connectivism, and the underlying threads of emergent learning to inform their planning and strategy. We will attempt to bring together elements of all these areas of research and practice to develop a framework for emergent learning that can be applied across education, work, and social networking, with their increasingly blurred boundaries.
We explore the following:
- What are the conditions that enable emergent, self-organised learning to occur and to flourish?
- What mechanisms of validation are effective, can emergent learning networks be self-correcting, and if so, how?
- Is it possible to link, or even integrate, emergent and prescribed learning, and if so, how?
