    [2009] The Ten Commandments of eLearning
    We discovered ‘The Ten Commandments of eLearning” as elucidated by Cath Ellis and Clive Shepherd. We’ve decided to follow in the same vein and list our commandments. First off, we thought ten is too many to remember, so we cut it down to five. There are some similarities to Cath and Clive’s commandments but that is to be expected given the nature of this post. Pedagogy First, Technology Second – Cath put it first on her list, we do as well. Use technology, leverage it, but always remember it’s a means to an end. Remember, technology can’t replace learning, only augment and support it.

    [2009] Empathy and Collaboration in Social Business Design
    To get to the main point quickly, let's do what few people offering thoughts about collaboration actually do. Let's explicitly discuss what it is. First off, collaboration isn't just about people sharing information to achieve common goals. Collaboration is about people working with other people to achieve common goals. Advocates of Enterprise 2.0 sometimes make the fundamental mistake of arguing that collaboration is really only about achieving goals, leaving the implication that incorporating social software into the workflow of organizations is sufficient. It requires shared experience.

    Yesterday I talked about the seeding, feeding, and weeding necessary to develop a self-sustaining network. referred to supporting the activities that we find in natural learning, for both formal and informal learning.  The goal is to align our organized support with our learners to optimize the outcome.  In thinking about it (and borrowing heavily from some slides by Jay Cross ), I discerned (read: worked hard to fit :) 7 C’s of learning that characterize how we learn before schooling extinguishes the love of learning: Choose : we are self-service learners.

    On the SLQOTD on Twitter today, I am asking “What is the difference between a Web 1.0, CMS, Web 2.0 and Social Media.” Here is my take: Web 1.0 is a push from one ‘person’ to many people. To make a change or add, it often has to go through a process if internal to an organization or the person needs to know HTML (I am making some generalizations here, but go with me…) There is one person who owns the content and who is the authority. It is focused on the information or document and the user cannot customize what they want to see. Others can go get it. call it a 1:portal:1 model. Web 2.0

    E-learning in the workplace used to be the preserve of the large corporate or public body. Only they were able to afford the necessarily substantial investments in learning platforms and content development and had the large audiences against which these investments could be amortised. And only these major employers had the specialist technical skills and large l&d departments needed to support these investments. Smaller organisations were essentially priced out. But this year we have seen a major shift. Many of my colleagues are doing the same.

    I get lots of requests for list of "best practices".in e-learning, in the virtual classroom, in instructional design, in classroom presentation. Here's the deal: there's no such thing. A "best practice" is best only in the precise, specific context in which it exists. don't recall who first offered this analogy, but think of it this way: what works in my marriage won't necessarily work in -- and may even damage -- yours. Even if moved from one situation to another very close one, the odds of transfer being made with practice intact is nil.

    [2009] Seed, feed, & weed
    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. Networks take nurturing.

    [2009] Business applications of Twitter
    Earlier this week, I attended a Twitter Camp billed Twitter is not for dummies. had the privilege of facilitating one of the breakout sessions, which focused on the business applications of Twitter. We discussed a range of issues around this topic, and we generated some really bright ideas that I feel are worth pursuing in the corporate sector. Some of the ideas specifically relate to e-learning, while others may fall more comfortably into other portfolios. In a nutshell, I see the business applications of Twitter falling into three main categories: 1. External. Internal. Personal. Scanning.

    [2009] Twitter Brings Lower Quality Clicks
    Richard Hoeg points out that for his blog Twitter = High Visits But Low Conversion. Basically, he shows his "referring sites" from Google Analytics for the past two weeks: His conclusion: Folks who visit from Twitter don't visit as many pages and spend less time of the site. Of course, that made me wonder if twitter really was bringing lower quality clicks than other sources. That's contrary to what I would expect. You would think that someone who gets a link referred by someone they know would visit and then look around. It should be pretty qualified. Bloglines also has better numbers.

This sort of fanciful thinking tripped up eLearning ten years ago. Informal Learning 2.0. n the world of business, the era of networks is crowding out the Industrial Age.

    [2009] Warmth and Competence. How our Learners Perceive.
    Susan Fiske, who was awarded the 2009 William James Fellow Award, is one of the world's leading social psychologists, often working with Shelley E. If social cognition comes down to just two dimensions, Warmth and Competence, might our learners also rely on these two categories in deciding how much to engage in our learning interventions? AND, if so, do we need to ensure that all our learning events exude both warmth and competence? got thinking about this while reading a review of Susan Fiske's keynote for the Association for Psychological Sciences.

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.

    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.

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.

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.
