Can I be a member?

Yes, anyone that is interested in Respectful discussion and learning can be a member.

All Members are “vetted” to some extent to ensure that they are essentially who they say they are. We do this to ensure the Learning Network gives members opportunities, to be honest, and frank in their additions to the community.

We are dedicated to protecting this space by making sure all members are vetted as appropriate.

I’m not in the US. Can I join?

Absolutely! Just as the internet is global, so is our Learning Network.

However, until we can figure out a great “translation” process, all content will be stored in English.

Are there Standards of Behavior Imposed on Members.

YES!

 The key foundational element of the @lantis Learning Network is the imposition of very detailed Communication Standards all members agree to follow.

Violation of the Standards is sufficient reason to be removed from the Network.

This is done for a couple of important reasons:

First, a key element to effective communication is a shared code.  By having strict communication standards everyone that plugs into the network can be assured the connection would consistent.

Second, the goal is to communicate in ways that make learning easier. So any communication that makes learning harder is counter-productive and to be discouraged.

What are Learning Questions

Learning Questions are specific things the community or individual wants to learn more about in order to thrive in the 21st Century.

Learning Questions can be very narrow like “What is the best way to cook chicken on a grill.”  Or learning questions can be very broad like “What is the best Healthcare system for the US.”  

Learning questions could also be very technical, like, “What is the best Wi-Fi Router should I buy?”

All Courses start with a question and an answer.  The community then adds value by suggesting facts, conclusions, and recommended actions that either support the answer to suggest a different answer.

Learning questions, answers, and value added information is fully editable by the community via a “Wiki” approach.

Learning questions start with questions, like, “What is the best way to lose weight?.”  Then one or more answers are proposed, like 1) The best way to lose weight is to exercise, or 2) The best way to lose weight is to eat less.

Then the community offers facts, conclusions, and recommended actions that support or counter a particular answer.  Each individual community member can then evaluate the questions and answers and either agree, disagree, and/or suggest why they agree or disagree.

The reason this can work is that all learning communities agree to use a communication standard that allows better valuation of the content.
