    [2009] Blogging for Personal Branding: Your Best Advice?
    We had our first webinar today for the folks at Career Commons. One of the questions that came up was how to use a blog for personal branding, particularly during the job search.  As Jesse put it in our call, "there's a broad blank canvas of possibilities when you start writing for your professional blog,  so how do you get started?" Jesse had a great idea--he plans to start responding to the Learning Circuit's blog Big Question. also shared some follow-up ideas and resources in the forum.  I'm wondering, though, what advice you have for the job seekers over at Career Commons.

    [2009] Wearable computing
    Information confined to a physical space may be a thing of the past. Watches, books, newspapers, and even computers are physically constrained. To access information, we must have the physical object (duh). What if it weren’t so? What if information was simply “there&# when we needed it? What if software (and, at least for now, a small computing device) was able to recognize context and provide us with information that we needed? What if information was stripped from physical objects and instead was available to us in a myriad of contexts?

    I recently engaged in a conversation with someone who suggested I was way behind the curve in adopting a better notetaking tool. They picked up on my comments in Better Memory about still using notepad for taking notes in lots of cases. There are a lot of tools out there in this space. I've looked at EverNote and OneNote quite a bit, but I'm not convinced yet that they fit well enough for me to adopt.

    This is a BRILLIANT point and quite possibly the most important one in the realm of implementing Enterprise 2.0. McAfee talks about getting requests to evaluate specific products for their 2.0-newness.he rejects that as an empty exercise and instead checks the deployment environment for how it maps to measures of "freeform, frictionless and emergent." This also rings too true; "Too many corporate collaboration environments that I’ve observed, in contrast, come up short on the frictionless and freeform criteria. Oh yeah. Sheesh. McAfee

In the first study 180 people were presented with new material in one of three alternative forms: With simple linear navigation. With random access to the material through a menu. With a combination of 1 and 2. Subjects were tested for recall immediately on completion and then again after two weeks. Why should this be? Work that out.

    [2009] Would anyone notice if we stopped training?
    How much of what we call training is actually just ticking boxes for someone else's report? What would be the real impact if you called a halt to all training activity in your organisation? Would anyone notice? When people come to you and say we need training, do you ever ask them why? Keep saying "Why" until you get back to the real heart of the problem, then, and only then, can you suggest a possible solution. That might include training, but it also might include: changing systems & processes. providing performance support (eg. like Google does so well). encouraging sharing of knowledge.

You could use Odeo to find podcasts; you could use it to listen to podcasts; and you could use it to make podcasts. Unfortunately for Odeo, two things happened. First, podcasting didn't take off as much as some had hoped; it was then (and remains) a niche interest. So things were not looking good for Odeo. So what was Odeo's response?

The point is not to say ‘bad designer’, but instead to point out how to do better design. One of the first things learners see is the introduction to the content; it’s the first place that they can be disappointed, and all too often they are.  Which is a wonderful way to start a learning experience, eh?

    I'm taking yet another online course in designing online courses. So far I'm not learning anything, I'm just going through the motions. What struck me tonight though, is this about the 10 th course I've taken using the Blackboard system. So you can imagine my familiarity with it. Last semester I actually got to create and teach a short course through it to my fellow students. Again, you can see it's not my first time using the platform. YOU'D THINK THOUGH. the way I have had to ask for clarification again and again about submitting assignments that I'm completely NEW. Do they say hit or click?

    I have to write an eLearning module for my eLearning class.  Gladly accepting any suggestions… The topic is going to be : How do you identify and interact with an adult with Executive Functioning issues? Two learning objectives: The learner will identify behavioral issues displayed by adults with executive functioning issues. The learner will identify strategies to diffuse situations brought on by an adult having problems with one of the executive functioning issues. Learner Characteristics : Anyone who may interact with an adult with Executive Functioning issues. What do you think?

    [2009] Social Media Dead Ideas
    In a comment on my post about the tyranny of dead ideas , Shannon Turlington left me a link to a great post she did exploring some of the dead ideas that surround the use of wikis. She sees three (but go read her post to get the full explanation): The need for permission. Someone "owns" the content. Everything must be "perfect". This got me wondering what are other dead ideas that people can't seem to let go of in terms of using social media. If we don't have "rules" then people will go nuts. Social media is a waste of time. If anything, I think social media is more of a timesaver for people.

    [2009] Learntec
    Yesterday morning I flew from Bilbao to London, changed terminals at Heathrow, and flew from London to Rome. Twenty minutes after landing, I was online from the back seat of Robin Good’s car, taking part in Learntec in Karlsruhe, Germany. Robin interviewed me while we waited for my session at Learntec to come alive. Once we got going, I engaged in an online conversation with Nancy White, Dave Cornier, and Heike Philp as if we were in adjoining rooms, which felt odd since I was actually in short-term parking at the Rome airport.

    I picked up a used copy of The Fourth Turning (1997) as I had read some reviews, positive and negative, and for the price figured it was worth it. won’t go into the entire premise of the book, as the reviews on Amazon give a good overview, but I find the recommendations from 1997 to prepare for the predicted crisis in the first decade of the millennium (now) most interesting: Once the Crisis catalyzes, anything can happen.

Anything with per-learner, strict tracking requirements. Content that's associated with the course content. Should not go in the LMS - Content that doesn't need strict tracking.

    [2009] The Collective Effect
    Why should our principles, beliefs, creeds, raison d'être as trainers and educators, be dislocated because of a global financial crisis? It seems illogical that just because things have got tough financially, even on a global scale, our fundamental ideologies as educators should have to be reviewed and turned around. Is it logic? We do not rush to review our theories of Mathematics, or of Science, or of Computer Logic Theory, just because we can’t afford to buy the software. So why should pedagogy and training theory be any different? It beggars logic. Could this be what happened?

Chicago, Denver, Rome, Venice, and Abu Dhabi have since hired “starchitects&# to design striking museums or dramatic makeovers. They won’t see the same results, for what makes the Gehry piece striking is the contrast to its surroundings.

    An activity stream is a mash-up of an individual’s or organization’s feeds. For example, my FriendFeed pages show activity from this blog, the Internet Time Blog, my Flickr account, bookmarks I put on Delicious, and my entries from Twitter. Tumblr operates similarly although it does a better job displaying photos and is a bit more spartan. As people use various different web sites to blog, update their status, post their location, or photos, sites and tools have emerged to aggregate these various actions into a continuous eclectic stream of activities.

    The November 2008 issue of Harvard Business Review contains an article by Nick Morgan entitled How to Become an Authentic Speaker. In brief: Instead of rehearsing gestures to make a speech feel authentic, you should tap into four fundamental aims, or “intents,” of a good presentation: to be open with your listeners, to connect with them, to be passionate about your topic, and to listen to messages from your audience, whether spoken or unspoken. Note the paradox here. This method is designed to achieve authenticity through the mastery of a calculated process. Related. To be rather than to seem.

He broke those tools down into three--albeit loose--categories representing "ways of empowering people individually and collectively to: Think. Create. Share and do.".
