2008 Predictions: The Pressure is On!

Kapp Notes

Stephen Downes has upped the ante on predictions for 2008 by creating a report card on predictions of 2007. But I do thank him for the time and effort and it has made me more careful with my 2008 prediction which will be released soon. Here is his post. think he should have submitted the grades for the other bloggers and then let the blogosphere grade his prediction.

A Grand New Magazine

Marcia Conner

I'm old enough to be a grandparent and I spend a lot of time with a special 1-year old so it shouldn't surprise me so much that I'm enjoying the website for a new magazine, GRAND. It's described as the magazine that celebrates the vital role and lifestyle of today's young

Are we nearing entrance to The Matrix?

Kapp Notes

Last month, Brookhaven National Laboratory computer scientist Michael McGuigan told New Scientist magazine he believed a “Matrix”-style virtual world, in which one cannot always distinguish between what's real and what's not, could be up and running in just a few years. The ideas and concepts of the widely popular movie The Matrix are closer than many people think.

Shout Out: Rachel Troychock

Kapp Notes

Speaking of alumni (see yesterday's post ) This month ASTD's magazine T&D featured one of Bloomsburg University's Instructional Technology alumni, Rachel in their article FUTURE LEADERS 2020. Here is what the magazine said about Rachel: Rachel Troychock is technology based learning manager at KPMG. If you'd like to read the article yourself, you can click on December T&D Magazine here. The article is about up and comming folks and what they are doing in the field of learning and e-learning. Currently, she is leading an initiative to incorporate the use of Web 2.0

Do we really need to design differently for the so called "Digital Natives"?

Kapp Notes

For example, someone born in 1994 was born the same year that Newsweek Magazine named the Internet "Person of the Year." This month, I worked with Tony Karrer to help create the ASTD Big Question (which always seems to be multiple questions under one big theme.) The main question is Learning design differences for Digital Natives? Let me rant first. Yes, yes and yes. the answer is "Yes."

Cost Consious Corporate Gift Idea

Kapp Notes

Here is what ASTD's Magazine, T&D had to say about Gadgets, Games and Gizmos for Learning. It is always so hard to determine what type of corporate gift is appropriate for clients, co-workers or your boss? What do you get them that is not too expensive but not too inexpensive, that is business-focused but not too business-focused. With these tough economic times, such decisions can be difficult. However, I think the perfect answer is Gadgets, Games and Gizmos for Learning. , it is fun but serious, informative but easy-to-read, insightful but not overly academic.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: The Value of Instructional Designers

Learning Visions

Monday, January 07, 2008 The Value of Instructional Designers Ive been having on ongoing conversation with other instructional designers as to whether or not we need to have the technical skill sets to actually build the courses we design. My Predictions for 2008 Instructional Design and Market Sector Differences. The programming skills should be left to the programmers. And I agree.

Summer Reading List 2008

Kapp Notes

The first, Tom Peter's book-- Re-Imagine --has a great, magazine-style layout (consider adapting a similar layout for your training materials) and, although it was published in 2003 it is as relevant today as it was in 2003. Ok, I know this is a little late but I have actually been away on vacation using Blogger's advanced posting function for the past two weeks. It is great for vacation by the way. Any way here are some interesting books for summer reading. Because of its unique layout, you don't need to read cover to cover, good to causally pick up from time to time. slight bummer.

Making the Most of Attending a Conference - Ideas Needed

Tony Karrer

In comments in the post Death of Magazines - Broader Deeper Coverage , Virginia Yonkers commented: I have to wonder what you expect to get out of a conference. have never gone to a conference with the expectation of learning anything (although it would be a nice aside) but rather to network, discuss issues, and market (myself, my institution, my discipline, my theories/philosophies). and later I just had two papers accepted at the AERA conference in NYC this year and am dreading it. also contacted some of the people whose papers I found interesting. somewhat agree with him on this.

Training Magazine's Fave Reads of 2007

Kapp Notes

Recently, the book reviewers of Training Magazine provided a list of all their favorite reads of 2007. I am happy to say that Gadgets, Games and Gizmos for Learning made the list as one of Jane Bozarth's top 5. Here are some of her other picks: Here are the picks of the other two reviewers, Skip Corsini and Melissa Thompson.

Death of Magazines - Broader Deeper Coverage

Tony Karrer

In particular, I say that since I've begun to shift my scanning behavior to blogs (scanning is how you stay up-to-speed on a topic) - my rapid fire skimming of blogs via a Skim Dive Skim approach has meant that magazines have mostly become pretty irrelevant to me. will bring copies of magazines on a plane to flip through, but rarely do I read articles in any great depth. But Rick and Donald got me thinking that the reality is that Magazines and Conferences continually must aim at introductory, novice, overview level content. They simply are not worth my Limited Attention.

Here’s How to Measure ROI in the Real World

Rapid eLearning

Magazine has opened up voting for best elearning software. It never fails. Fill a room with instructional designers and you’ll always have someone ask, ‘How do you measure your return on investment." To which I respond, "What are you? An accountant?" As the great elearning pioneer, Dr. Werner Oppelbaumer says, "If you want better ROI, hire smarter people who don’t need training." Here’s the deal with return on investment (ROI). It’s tricky. And considering our economic climate, that’s not a bad idea. Customer Satisfaction = Success.

The big question: What are your predictions for learning in 2008

Clive on Learning

In addressing this month's question on the Learning Circuits Blog , I was tempted by an observation made by Stephen Downes in his review of last year's eLearn Magazine predictions : there are two major types of predictions: one, which identifies a current trend, and says it will continue; and the other, that identifies something novel or unexpected. I'm sorry, but nothing startling there.
