Joining a learning community

10 March 2009

Well, I have selected my online community and now I just need to see whether it matches Kilpatrick, Barrett and Jones’ definition of a learning community.

And the winner is …

Museum 3.0 – a Ning community started by museum audience research Lynda Kelly

One initial box checked on the learning community definition is that of purpose: the subtitle of this community is “what will the museum of the future be like?”. Could I suggest that the work this community is doing is collaboration in the sense of shared creation of knowledge, rather than sharing an existing model?


Museum 2.0: “Museum 2.0 explores ways that web 2.0 philosophies can be applied in museum design.” – but it’s a highly-commented-upon blog by Nina Simon, rather than a community space.

National Museums Online Learning Project 2006-9: “The National Museums Online Learning Project [brings together] 9 national museums (British Museum, Imperial War Museum, National Portrait Gallery, Natural History Museum, Royal Armouries, Sir John Soane’s Museum, Tate, The Wallace Collection and the Victoria and Albert Museum).” – but it’s not live yet.
