Until the shift from industrial to network dominance, corporations could compensate for crummy learning by hiring experienced people and managing ingenious command-and-control structures. It’s learn or die. Jay Cross.

When Stephen Downes laid down his manifesto for e-Learning 2.0 in 2005 , he tapped into the zeitgeist of emerging social technologies and theorised a number of possibilities. Four years on technology is moving ever more rapidly, and a reappraisal of learning within digital spaces is overdue. Learning 3.0

Fish are the last to recognise water = informal learning?

Sticky Learning

I just twittered a thought - 'The benefit of Informal learning is that fish are the last to recognise water' - and then I started thinking. This is the real essence of informal learning. People become so engrossed in what they are doing that they don't see that they are learning - until they have learnt (if this makes sense?) So what does this mean for workplace learning?

E-Learning Debate 2009

Clive on Learning

Today saw a tremendous gathering of the who's who of UK learning technologies in the historic debating chamber of the Oxford Union. Many thanks must go to e-learning developers Epic for putting together this event and allowing their own industry to be placed under the microscope. The motion was as follows: "This house believes that the e-learning of today is essential for the important skills of tomorrow." As a result, much of the debate was about what e-learning should be rather than whether it should be at all. Today's e-learning is marginally useful.

Learning 2.0

Learning Journal

If you read some of the predictions for 2009  that were compiled by Lisa Neal Gualtieri at eLearn Magazine, you may have noticed that people foresee a resurgence of informal learning, especially in new, e-mediated forms.  While I agree that many people have developed some savvy with really cool tools, using those tools for learning is a different skill set.  One of the challenges I think we need to address is the need to teach people a new way to learn.  Here’s what I mean: Learning Skill.

The Secret Recipe to Delivering World Class Lectures


"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. Secondly, you might argue that we should get rid of lecturing all together to revive University learning to be relevant to the world beyond, as its' learning effectiveness is being questioned by many. Why wait?

2009 Predictions

Viplav Baxi Meanderings

PLEs will be shareable – tools shall arrive on the web that shall allow entire learning experiences to be sliced and shared between users. Any learner wanting to learn about a topic will take a PLE slice of a person who the community says has mastered it and follow the learning path. Some notable attempts such as Twine helped in some way, as did others, but the concept of shared learning experiences seemed to be too futuristic or useless for 2008. Better luck in 2009 perhaps. Some luck here as major LMS vendors started putting in 2.0

Stop Hovering over Learners

Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning

It has been argued that too much hovering sometimes backfires, because kids learn their values backwards: they feel entitled to things that they must earn, they lack empathy where it is needed. Such excesses have their parallels in the learning world. Take e-learning design, for example. Yes/No) I mix informal learning experiences in the structured learning path.

Top six business (learning) books of 2009 (so far!!)

Sticky Learning

6 months of 2009 have already passed me by. I've reviewed some of these in others places on my blog, however I'll quickly explain what each book has provided for me (with an emphasis on learning). The Designful Company For me, a learning designer, it gave me a greater sense of the importance of the design process in strategic planning within business. As a result, learning within business must be designed as an integral part of the business strategy, rather than as an added extra.
