In a multicellular creature (a society), cells (individuals) are specialized by functions (eg. bone/ building construction or oxygen / gasoline transport)

Specialization reduces the ability of individuals to survive outside of the system containing all components. within an organism under which the members best fit for a specific task (according to their natural aptitude, location, skill, or other qualification) assume responsibility for the execution of the task.

It is initiated by individuals

Self Organizing is human nature Forms of participation incredibly diverse

Many different kinds of obstacles to full participationMany different degrees of access to information, technologies, and online communitiesMany different ways of processing those experiences.

Risks, opportunities, and competencies are spread unevenly across the social and cultural landscape.

Differential access to online experiences, practices, and tools

Consequence in their developing sense of their own identities and their place in the world.

New media have introduced novel and unexpected kinds of social differences, subcultures, and identities. Young people's digital media use is tied to basic social and cultural competencies needed for full participation in contemporary society.

The ubiquitous impact of digital experiences on learning, civic engagement, professional development, and ethical comprehension of the digital world. Participatory cultures

Multiple forms of expertise, connoisseurship, identity, and practice

Foster complicated relationships to pre-existing categories such as socioeconomic status, gender, nationality, race, or ethnicity. Far too simple to talk in binaries

the need to take responsibility for one’s own life,

and the question is—how can one convert apparent failure into a learning opportunity? archaic : training in the What do my students learn intuitively from the class interactions designed by ME? Fostering civility in the classroom is

Managers standardized processes so that they could hire the least qualified and most replaceable workers... so in practice they actually encouraged generalization (often confused with interdisciplinary) of skills AGREEMENT Cross Culturalization How Specialization became bad It's NOT about exotic folks over there
Anyone outside of own primary group is cross cultural. a multidisciplinary manner: merely adding disciplinary insights interdisciplinarity :
work that integrates knowledge
AND modes of thinking
from two or more disciplines. The disciplines, (despite reductionist tendencies, narrow perspectives) are appropriate for engaging in integrative learning, thinking, and research Others of Knowledge
the knowledge of workers
(e.g., carpenters, mechanics, website designers, farmers),
the knowledge of parents gazing into the eyes of infants.
