Delicious, Take Two

eLearning Cyclops

I signed up for Delicious social bookmarking quite a while ago, but it just didn't take for me. Either way, I set-up Delicious and just never really used it beyond the first few days. Let's hope my new job does not block Delicious. Here is what I like so far: Everything can be tagged - easy to stay organized Adding a badge widget to my blog, promote sharing my bookmarks Adding a Delicious tag cloud to my site or blog (see my Delicious tag cloud below) Viewing how many people, and who, bookmarked pages. And here is my Delicious tag cloud.

Where’s your data?

Learning and Working on the Web

Delicious: OPML file downloaded monthly. I wrote about the importance of owning your data for blogging a while back and last week’s Twitter crash coupled with the demise of an URL shortener only reinforce that in my mind. This is a real problem on Twitter where everyone uses URL shorteners and that’s why I write up  Friday’s Finds with real links.

LearnTrends: Personal Knowledge Management

Experiencing eLearning

Delicious: what he uses to save things instead of Bloglines. When you bookmark on delicious, you can also see how others have tagged it. These are my live blogged notes from Harold Jarche’s LearnTrends session on Personal Knowledge Management. My side comments are in italics. Sense-making with PKM. When he moved to consulting and didn’t have an IT department and those resources, he realized he had to do something different. Idea from Will Richardson: what do you do when you read a blog post and come across an interesting few sentences? What do you do with that system?

You can contribute your top tools too.

Beware the cloud

George Siemens

Web-based tools like Google Docs, Twitter, wordpress, delicious, etc. I’ve found personal benefit to moving more and more of my information into “the cloud&#. provide the freedom to access my resources regardless of device. The development of smart phones over the last several years makes this model of data creation/access particularly valuable. With MobileMe and LiveMesh, we get the additional value of being able to store resources - via the cloud - across multiple devices. Good ol’ redundancy. All is not well, however.

Free PD - Focus on your Foundation

As an instructional designer I routinely receive questions around common themes: course design, teamwork vs individual work, assessments, rubrics, best practices in conducting discussion groups, team-based learning, etc. So I am always on the look out for free resources that can be good references when helping instructors in their practice of teaching. There is no need to register whatsoever.

Dealing with Ambiguity!

Delicious ambiguity! Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Gilda Radner I have just written a short post on life being in a state of perennial beta. And the importance of dealing with ambiguity. Why is ambiguity important? Ambiguity is not to be confused with lack of planning.

Folksonomies, memes and misunderstanding

Learning with e's

responded (as you do) with my own version: "A folksonomist: one who organises information in ways that make sense to his/her own community of practice or interest." It was retweeted several times by others and they seemed to like my definition. I was thinking about individuals tagging and organising their own content using tools such as Delicious , and then making them available to others.
