The Peeragogy Handbook has drawn praise from leading Peer-to-Peer theorist Michel Bauwens, Research Director of the Free/Libre Open Knowledge (FLOK) Society, a project at the IAEN national university with support of the Ecuadorian Ministry of Human Resource and Knowledge. Rheingold and a great team of collaborators have preceded the rest of humanity in exploring the new dynamics of technologically-enhanced peer learning., said Bauwens.
Med Kharbach, editor of Educational Technology & Mobile Learning, also wrote, [the] Peeragogy handbook is now online and for FREE. I highly recommend that you download and keep it with you. It contains a treasure trove of tools to help you in your learning. Last year, the Peeragogy Handbook was selected as one of the Peer-to-Peer Foundations best books of 2013. If a group of people want to use online media and networks to learn together (co-learn), this Handbook will help to self-organize peeragogy.
wrote EdTechReview. A portion of the first edition handbook was selected for inclusion in The Open Book, which explores the social and technological manifestations of this emergent movement. It was built by the community, with thanks to The Finnish Institute in London and the Open Knowledge Foundation and in honor of the first Open Knowledge Festival in Helsinki. On January 1st, 2014, the PDF e-book version was available for free download from http: //peeragogy.org and interested readers were able to sign up for email notification of the print version availability.
About the Peeragogy Project: Peeragogy.org is administered and edited by a group of peers who also publish the Handbook, maintain the accompanying social media communities and experiment with their own case-studies in Peeragogy via the Peeragogy Accelerator. Joe Corneli and Charles Jeffrey Danoff began researching peer learning theories in late 2010 calling it Paragogy. The following year, Rheingold amended the term to peeragogy and in 2012 launched the Peeragogy Handbook project with the aim of synthesizing widely collected peer-learning techniques into a practical guide.
Open to contributions from anyone in the world, the first edition was published on January 1st, 2013 and over the past year the editorial board comprising Corneli, Danoff, George Brett, Kyle Larson, Charlotte Pierce, Paola Ricaurte and Fabrizio Terzi worked with other contributors to produce this second edition. The online edition is constantly updated at peeragogy.org.
