2009 Top Posts and Topics: Kapp Notes
DECEMBER 4, 2009
The ASTD Big question this month is an annual question: What did you learn about learning in 2009? So one of the tasks I will do to answer this question is to see what posts were the Best of 2009 from several different sources. This entry was made because I was doing a presentation on the topics and I wanted to use my blog as the platform for presenting the information and as a "leave behind" resource so that the teachers could reference and find the games all in one place when they wanted to use them for the classroom. Here are my top posts via Google Analytics for 2009.(I'll

TrainingDay: Back on The Blog
AUGUST 27, 2009
So, I have to admit that when I was co-writing Learning in 3D , my blogging was diminished but now that the book is 99% finished (just the permissions and instructor guide to finish), I'm back to almost regular blogging and as part of that I am again blogging at the TrainingDay blog. Here is my latest entry. Letter to Your Boss About Virtual Immersive Environments.

Tool Set 2009
JANUARY 5, 2009
The information in this series has been something I've been presenting, writing, blogging about and more recently doing workshops around. But hopefully 2009 will be the year when that begins to change. Sue's description of a personal learning network is: Personal Learning Networks (PLNs) are all about using web tools such as blogs, wiki, twitter, facebook to create connects with others which extend our learning, increases our reflection while enabling us to learn together as part of a global community. Blogging Inside or Outside the Corporate Firewall ).
Instructivism, constructivism or connectivism?
MARCH 16, 2009
News feeds, podcasts, blogs, wikis and discussion forums. 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. Fast forward to today and connectivism is all the rage. Slippery slope. But is this gradient a fair representation? The real world.
Effective virtual facilitation
OCTOBER 13, 2009
Perhaps other courses, websites, discussion forums, podcasts, blogs etc. As virtual classes rapidly become de rigueur , the need for an effective virtual facilitation framework accelerates. I propose the 5-stage model of e-moderation developed by world-renowned networked learning guru, Gilly Salmon. The Model. This stage is about getting your remote participants up and running.

Marc Prensky Blog. Ulearning Blog. Mlearning Blog. Upside Learning Blog. Derek Bruff’s Blog. The ECAR Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology, 2009. 2009 Horizon Report.

I’ve been doing some research around it and I’ve documented some of the better links I’ve come across. If you’re considering mobile learning in any shape or form, I’d suggest you give these a browse.
Blogging in a Walled Garden
FEBRUARY 1, 2009
One of the features of Sakai that our team was looking for in a new LMS is a blogging tool. However, it does give us the option of blogging within the system. We’re still using those tools for some courses, depending on the content and activities, but we’re starting to integrate this internal blog into our activities. Blog Conversations. Usability.

Elements of a Virtual World/Metaverse
JANUARY 29, 2009
capabilities of wikis or blogs where changes, updates and additions are easily made to web sites without the contributor needing to know HTML or any programming language. Using a virtual world or metaverse for training is not as science-fiction as it sounds. Synchronous learning tools allow for real-time interaction on a computer among learners separated by great distances.
Virtual World Brainstorming Session
JANUARY 28, 2009
One of the great things about what I do is getting to meet and work with really thoughtful and creative people and the other day, I got a chance to brainstorm with a group of great people on the topic of Virtual World Implementations. Instead the in-world training should be " Go to the corner store and purchase a trade magazine from the clerk." It makes it more fun and more engaging.
Workplace learning in 10 years
MARCH 24, 2009
As staff familiarise themselves with blogs, wikis, RSS, YouTube and Twitter, and as more tech-savvy Gen-Y’s & Z’s join the organisation, the demand for self-paced, self-directed learning will accelerate. To answer this question, I’ve organised my own two cents’ worth under six major banners… 1. E-Learning development should be no different.

It is in its early stages but we are looking forward to the unveiling in January along with the Blog book tour that starts on January 11th.

Conflicting personas: social media as an ‘AND’ role (initially titled ‘AND’ job which is entirely inappropriate, even for this blog)
DECEMBER 29, 2009
You can teach people instructional design without having an instructional design blog but I don’t think it’s as easy to teach people ‘business 2.0′ You know one of those brief tweets or status updates that can easily be lifted from bigger, continuous conversations you’re having with online friends and followers? Out of context stuff. Poor partygirl99. Wha???
