The Peeragogy Handbook is a resource for self-organizing self-learners that draws many ideas and inspiration from Wikimedia communities. This workshop seeks to formally introduce the book and project to the community, recount our 2012 work, share 2013 efforts (including a translation on Italian Wikibooks) and seek contributors and case studies we can use to expand and improve our efforts. We want to make peer learning as efficient and replicable as possible. In the workshop we ask participants to share their current peer projects and we hope out work can help them reach their goals.

Detailed proposal

With this workshop we would like to spread awareness of our peer learning resource and involvement from Wikimaina community. In addition to helping anyone who attends the workshop with their peer projects and peer learning goals! The First Edition of our Handbook describes itself as:

This book, and accompanying website, is a resource for self- organizing self-learners. With YouTube, Wikipedia, search engines, free chatrooms, blogs, wikis, and video communication, today’s self-learners have power never dreamed-of before. What does any group of self-learners need to know in order to self-organize learning about any topic? The Peeragogy Handbook is a volunteer-created and maintained resource for bootstrapping peer learning.

This project seeks to empower the worldwide population of self-motivated learners who use digital media to connect with each other, to co-construct knowledge of how to co-learn. Co-learning is ancient; the capacity for learning by imitation and more, to teach others what we know, is the essence of human culture.

Additonally I will touch upon:

  • Progress on the "Peeragogy Accelerator" as detailed in our Roadmaps to Peer Learning paper submitted to Wikisym 2013.
  • Updates on translation efforts into Italian, French, Spanish, Russian, Chinese and more hopefully!
  • Thoughts on a "Distributed University" of peer learners built on existing free software ecosystems like the Wikimedia Projects, Planet Math, the Free Techonology Guild and the like.
  • Using the Peeraogy lesson plan published in the Open Book (Cf. http://theopenbook.org.uk/)

Overall; however, following the introduction to our progress, the focus of the workshop will be on constructively assisting those in attendance to execute peer learning and peer projects better!
