In this class, we try to answer the question How do we improve our lives. The Answer the class offers is: an improved life comes from good decisions, good decisions come from good information, and good information comes from good communication and good communication is build on good listening.
@lantis Collaborative Learning Participation Guidelines.
The goal of this class, and all other @lantis Classes, is to answer specific questions.
In this class, Improved Communication Improve Your Life, the question we are trying to answer is: How do we improve our lives?
This class works best if everyone takes what they know and what they learn in the class and share their ideas, thoughts, and creative suggestions with each other. This means practicing active listening and participating skills.
Your peers can provide a new perspective, valuable insights, and guidance for you as you work through your learning. And you can provide new perspectives, valuable insights, and guidance for others as they work through their learning.
However, please remember you MUST BE A @LANTIS LEARNING NETWORK MEMBER TO ADD CONTENT TO THIS CLASS.
We wish for as much diverse content as possible, but the content has to be vetted, and that starts with the vetting of the creator of the content.
The author and date of creation are the two foundational pieces of “meta-data” that start the @lantis Educational Blockchain.
Remember that all your content and your name are protected by the use of “Avatars” and “Tokens.”
@lantis Class Structure:
@lantis classes are unlike traditional classes.
The goal of any @lantis class is to have the learners add learning back into the class.
This learning is added to the @lantis Network Library in form of structured “Learning Packets (LPs).”
The Class should represent the “Best Learning Packets (LPs)” to teach something. Those LPs should be dynamically updated as new information is processed. The new information would either confirm the LP is, in fact, the “Best” LP or suggest a change to the LP.
If the information suggests a change, there should be a suggestion as to how the LP should change.
At any given time there should be a list of suggested changes to the LPs. Those changes are discussed in the Class and voted on by the Class. Any Class member can vote yes or no. Supermajorities are required to make the changes.
Non-members of the @lantis Learning Network (ALN) can take the class and learn from it, but have to be a member of the ALN to add or change a class LP. The reason for this is simple, the more we know about the source of the LP the better we can value the learning.
Only ALN members can add Learning Packets to the ALN Library because only they have a “vetted” profile. A “vetted” profile is required to optimally value the LP.
The ALN profile is an “Avatar” to others on the network. Every member’s personal information is completely separate from the information in the library.
Ways to Add Value to the Network
- Agreement/disagreement with the LP – Meta-Data
- Create New Learning – Create a “Base Learning Packet.”
- Create a “Fork Learning Packet” – Add additional Content or change existing content in a LP.
- Add, Change, Delete LP Meta-Data – Increase the “transparency” of
The goal of @lantis Network Members is not to simply to be taught an answer.
The goal is to learn how to apply what we’ve learned in realistic situations in a competent, considered manner as a means of reaching reasonable and supportable conclusions and then teach others what we’ve learned so they can learn even more. Then, they can teach the new stuff they’ve learn back into the Network.
Once the Network reaches “critical mass” the learning should be exponential.
The goal of the @lantis Network is to help the Community thrive in our 21st Century Hyper-connected Digital world by helping each of us to learn how to thrive in our 21st Century Hyper-connected Digital world.
