Within the framework of the 11th ZEMOS98 Festival, with the Expanded education Symposium at its core, in March 2009 Platoniq carried out a pilot Bank of Common Knowledge (BCK) experience at Antonio Domínguez Ortiz secondary school in the Polígono Sur neighbourhood in Seville, also known as Las 3000 Viviendas. The school structures its educational approach around the Educational Compensation Plan, which forms part of the Commissioner's Comprehensive Plan for Polígono Sur, an area whose social, economic and cultural characteristics call for new educational models and...

Platoniq interviews Michael Linton (1) 1. LETSplay!  In our experience with the Bank of Common Knowledge, collective games make for perfect setups to teach a particular idea. And although LETSplay is pretty different from today's computer-based games, it uses the game format as a vehicle to spread certain ideas and raise awareness about the user/player's own economic reality. Can you talk about your intentions with that particular strategy and your own perception of that format as a medium? Early in our development and propagation of LETSystems, and ever since with community currencies (cc) and Open Money, we have found that people are very careful in the beginning, like youngsters opening up their first bank accounts....

Platoniq interviews Gregor Gimmy, from (1) 1. What are the origins of SCLIPO? When did it start? What were the main goals? Sclipo started officially in Jan 2007. I launched a prototype in Nov 2006, which got great feedback from the internet community. I had the idea, built the first prototype and wrote the business plan. I have been involved over many years in internet and education / knowledge management. E.g., I founded a web-company in San Francisco in 1999 which helped Biotech researchers share knowledge. With the emergence of internet video, I saw that knowledge exchange via web will change the way we learn. It will not substitute today's "physical, off-line" learning, but... Read more

Platoniq interviews Teemu Leinonen (1) 1. M-learning-related projects such as MobilED, ShareIdeas and others are operating in pretty much uncharted territory, as the present of mobile communication technologies evolves every few weeks/months. Have you conducted any previous studies on similar enterprises before starting your project or do you prefer to focus on this particular reality?   In our research practice we have several stages.These are: contextual inquiry, participatory design, product design and implementation of software and/or social/technological system as hypothesis. The process is iterative and we understand that in the later stages of the process we always gain more understanding of the topics and activities central in the earlier stages. During the contextual inquiry we... Read more

Platoniq interviews David Wilcox, from Designing for Civil Society (1) 1. What are the origins of your project? When did it start? What were the main goals?   In 2003 I was thinking about starting a blog, and went to a workshop called Designing for Civil Society, at a conference. I suggested we blog the workshop... And afterwards I kept it going. 2. What needs does it address, what sort of problems does it try to solve? I have worked as a print journalist, and as a consultant in regeneration, community engagement, and partnership organisations. The focus of the blog -and my current work- is on how to mix face-to-face and online communication for collaborations. I continue to work as a consultant, helping people develop processes for collaboration.   3.... Read more
