    [2009] Top Posts of 2009
    Predictions for 2009. welcome your thoughts of what made these the most interesting posts of 2009.  Seeing all the top 10 lists, I thought I’d look at what the top 10 posts were for Learnlets (using Google Analytics), and I have to say that the responses were interesting, as some weren’t the ones I thought were most interesting. suspect that they’re the ones that other people pointed to most for a variety of reasons (including me pointing people to the Broken ID series beginning).

    [2009] How do I learn to teach online?
    For some teachers, there are misconceptions about the process of teaching online. Some think it’s exactly the same as teaching in the classroom. Well, as a practitioner of both types of teaching I can attest that they are significantly different processes. So if you have never had the opportunity to be a student in an online course or have never had a mentor who can teach how to teach online then where do you gain the knowledge and skills? There are few different answers to this question. You could go to school to learn this material. That’s what I did. This document is fantastic.

    [2009] Instructivism, constructivism or connectivism?
    Instructivism is dead. Gone are the days of an authoritarian teacher transmitting pre-defined information to passive students. In the 1990s, constructivism heralded a new dawn in instructional design, turbo-charged by the rise of Web 2.0. Students morphed into participants , empowered to seek new knowledge and understanding for themselves, in the context of their own unique, individual experiences. In turn, teachers enthusiastically transformed themselves into facilitators , guiding and coaching the participants to inquire, explore, discover and even generate new learnings. Slippery slope.

    [2009] The Secret Recipe to Delivering World Class Lectures
    And after exploring some of the educators and lectures I have shared above, I believe I need to spend the rest of 2009 to first improve myself. "The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.” – Albert Einstein Firstly, you might get annoyed with the term 'World Class' and I would perhaps, too. But at least it got you to this sentence, so it is working (until now!). Think of 'World Class' in this context as delivering exceptional or inspiring lectures, talks, presentations, etc. With that I totally disagree ! It is about discovering the joy for learning. Why wait?

    [2009] The Big Question: What will workplace learning look like in 10 years?
    Can it be that time again? Another month of my life gone, another Big Question from the Learning Circuits Blog. And the questions don't get any easier do they? The problem with predictions is that they're almost impossible to make with any certainty. And if they cover too short a period, then it's easy for people to check back and prove you wrong. The good thing about ten year predictions is that absolutely no-one will remember that you made them. It's easy when projecting ahead to imagine a future which would be entirely of your liking. Wishful thinking is fun but it's hardly useful.

    So it is high time that I give an update, and Jane has provided me the perfect excuse as she recently announced the final results of the 2009 edition of her survey of Tools for Learning. Here are the top 10 tools for 2009, with the number of votes each received. The growth of YouTube—not just in terms of the number of videos it serves up daily, but in how people perceive it—is evident by its climb from a modest 18th place in 2008 to 3rd in 2009. And another big climb is evident for SlideShare, which went from 31st in 2007 to 20th in 2008 to 7th in 2009. 159 Twitter.

    [2009] Audio in E-Learning
    Audio is a powerful and impactful tool, but it is often used incorrectly within e-learning courses. recently had a discussion with Dan Bliton in his role at the Metro DC ASTD chapter about this topic, here is a small part of the interview. common question is "Should we have audio in the e-learning module that exactly matches the text on the screen?" The general answer is no. It’s not that you can’t learn from audio and text, it is just that the learning is more productive if the two are separate (audio that enhances what is on the screen not repeats it word-for-word). Here are some reasons why.

    No, it is not an Airport! It is more like a space station ! If you ask a true learning professional, he or she will probably articulate Moodle as a virtual learning environment (VLE) , or course management system (CMS) , or worst case a learning management system (LMS). Whatever Moodle is, in this post Moodle is an 'Airport' (figurative speech that is!).

    A recent study issued by the United States Department of Education, titled Evaluation of Evidence-Based Practices in Online Learning found that “ On average, students in online learning conditions performed better than those receiving face-to-face instruction. ” The study is a study of studies (meta-analysis), meaning they looked at many studies comparing online, face-to-face and blended learning and then drew conclusions.

In 10 years’ time, I believe organisations will rely less on external development houses to produce e-learning solutions, and instead bring more – if not all – of it in-house.

    In my presentation yesterday, I was talking about how to get informal learning going.  As many have noted, it’s about moving from a notion of being a builder, handcrafting (or mass-producing) solutions, to being a facilitator, nurturing the community to develop it’s own capabilities.  Jay Cross talks about the learnscape , while I term it the performance ecosystem. The point, however, is from the point of the view of the learner, all the resources needed are ‘to hand’  through every stage of knowledge work. But if you build it, they may not come.

Even if moved from one situation to another very close one, the odds of transfer being made with practice intact is nil.

This sort of fanciful thinking tripped up eLearning ten years ago. Informal Learning 2.0. I n the world of business, the era of networks is crowding out the Industrial Age. Network connections are replacing rigidity with flexibility, penetrating internal boundaries and silos and obliterating the walls that have separated businesses from their customers. In sum, networks are ushering in new ways of doing business.

    What a difference one letter change makes to that old term “knowhow”. KnowHow meant retaining knowledge in your head so you could apply it at some undefined point in time in the future. While clearly there are basic skills and knowledge that we need to retain internally it is often a fallacy to think that short term, event driven training will be retained long enough, and in a good enough state, Tags: education Memory KnowNow UPS performance support

    [2009] Ultimately it’s line managers that determine the success of learning and development
    A week or two back I attended an interesting presentation, Great employers need great line managers , by John Purcell, Strategic Academic Adviser, Employment Relations for ACAS and a part-time Research Professor at Warwick University. Here are some notes I took: There is a gap between intended policies and actual practices. What matters is not the policy, but what employees actually experience. There are big variations in employee perceptions of the quality of line management behaviour in terms of people management. The lesson from all this evidence is quite clear.

    [2009] Social Media Conversations
    This post is just a quick reminder of the beauty of interesting new social media conversations and social media relationships. Ken Allan and I have had several interesting exchanges via our blogs and around the eLearning Learning site. I'm not even sure what I would call Ken – it's somewhere in the peer, colleague, friend space. I've never met Ken and I don't think we've had a real-time conversation (apologies to Ken if that's not true). And the list of these kinds of relationships that I have is fairly long. But it's a beautiful relationship with wonderful conversations. Good luck with that.

    [2009] ePorfolios Blogs and Audience Response Systems at Back to School Night
    I must say that many back-to-school nights are a bit painful. For those of you who are not familiar with this, it's an evening where you go to the school (without your children) and the teachers tell you a little bit about how they will approach the year. This year, I attended three different back-to-school nights for my three children (elementary, middle school and high school). Most teachers hand a sheet with all the information they plan to present (which is good because there are often lots of links and other helpful information). And then they proceed to walk through it. Any pointers?

    This week's Economist carried an interesting article about the use of video games at school. The article, Games Lessons , describes how Katie Salen, a games designer and professor of design and technology at Parsons The New School for Design, in New York, has taken the initiative in setting up Quest to Learn , "a new, taxpayer-funded school which is about to open its doors to pupils who will never suffer the indignity of snoring through double French but will, rather, spend their entire days playing games." It will be extremely interesting to see how they get on.

    [2009] Does Deliberative Practice Lead to Quick Proficiency?
    In Social Media Conversations , I posted the story of how this post came about. Briefly, I sent Ken Allan the following question: Any thoughts on how deliberative practice relates to becoming something less than an expert. It seems like it should be applicable to all levels of achievement, but everything I'm reading is the study of becoming an expert. Is that just aspirational, or is deliberative practice also studied for quick attainment of proficiency? And he responded with Proficiency and Deliberative Practice. In this case, I'm going to create a post out of it. Jack of all trades.

    [2009] What is a Learning Technologist?
    Learning Technologists are not always involved in purely online, distance, eLearning or mLearning, we are used to help improve and update face-to-face materials to either introduce a new technique or just to update a presentation, make it more 2009 and less 1999. The question "what is a Learning Technologist", I've finally realised, can be answerd differently based on who you ask, where they work, and what day of the week it is. We are also sometimes referred to as an Educational Technologist, but never as a Demonstrator. Does that make it any easier? No, how about this.

    [2009] Best Practices for Creating Online Courses
    There are many things to think about when creating eLearning. There’s no way that I can mention all of them in this post but I’d like to mention a few that come to the top of my mind. Course Outline / Storyboarding. Know the audience. Find good SMEs. Always create an outline of the course. Storyboarding allows you to structure content flow. Decide what knowledge/skills need to be taught first. SMEs can take a glance at the flow and content. Content creating will go more quickly. (it’s faster than creating content and then starting over). Learners scan, they don’t read.

    Bentham developed the idea of the panopticon , a prison design that provided a single central point from which all prisoners/cells/activities could be observed. Many American shopping malls adopted this as a design guide, too.)Foucault Foucault wrote at length of the pervasiveness of the idea -- the need to observe and regulate -- as it extended to other institutions such as hospitals and schools. And it extends to a new realm, now. While the Dean could always drop by the traditional classroom, he/she didn't do it very often, and when it happened you knew he/she was there. That's it.

    Screencasting can be useful in distance education. Recently, I met with colleagues who are designing a distance course in physics.

When they deliver the course in class, they spent the first 15-20 minutes of each lecture thoroughly going over solutions from previously assigned homework problems. Students report that this investment of time in problem solving in the classroom really helps them master the subject matter. Remote screencasting was the front runner in the discussion.

    Other Posts in the Series Tool Set 2009 Work Skills Keeping Up Top-Down Strategy Better Memory Information Radar Networks and Learning Communities Collaborate Twitter as Personal Work and Learning Tool Search Browser Short Cuts Work Literacy Workshop Browse eLearning Content at www.elearninglearning.comFor people new to the concepts of social media and reviewing their tool set, is Twitter a good choice as a tool?

    [2009] Working around the LMS
    I was at a local learning/technology conference yesterday and one of my peers (who I'll keep anonymous) did a great presentation on some short, just-in-time videos/screencasts that her department had done. thought one of the most interesting points she made was that at this time, they aren't bothering to put them in their LMS, because they're just interested in people getting the training (which they want to make as easy as possible). they aren't interested in tracking it. We have done some similar projects and we have taken the same approach. Do you need reporting?
