Book #2 Description
Peeragogy is a collection of techniques for collaborative learning and collaborative work. By identifying and implementing effective patterns for working together, we hope to leave the world in a better state than it was when we arrived.

Indeed, humans have always shared knowledge with each other. But for a long time, until the advent of the web and widespread access to digital media, traditional systems have effectively monopolized the pursuit of learning.

Now, with access to open educational resources and free or inexpensive communication platforms, groups of people can learn together outside as well as inside of formal institutions.

These developments prompted us to reconsider the meaning of “peer learning” and to co-create the
Peeragogy Handbook.

“Howard Rheingold and a great team of collaborators have preceded the rest of humanity in exploring the new dynamics of technologically-enhanced peer learning.” Michel Bauwens, Foundation for Peer-to-Peer Alternatives
