Reflecting on the “Narrating Your Work” Experiment

Hans de Zwart, Technology as a Solution…, Jul 21, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Hans de Zwart reports on the results of a practical experiment "to find out whether it would be possible to use a microblogging tool to narrate our work with the intention of making better performing virtual teams." The small survey should be thought of more as a single perspective rather than as a sample. "There was a clear preference for short messages (i.e. one paragraph). People also prefered messages to be as close as possible to when it happened. One final thing that was much appreciated was wittiness and a bit fun." Nobody liked the idea of mandatory microblogging, but they also expressed a preference for some setting of expectations. Time now, suggests de Zwart, to turn the idea over to the academics for study and formalization.
