In the 1990s, constructivism heralded a new dawn in instructional design, turbo-charged by the rise of Web 2.0. Fast forward to today and connectivism is all the rage. Slippery slope.

Twitter for learning

Sticky Learning

Why wouldn't you use Twitter?! I've only been actively participating on Twitter for 4-5 months now. I'm also interested in how design thinking impacts upon learning and the use of visuals to communicate ideas and knowledge.  In the few months that I've been active on Twitter I have been exposed to more ideas from more sources than in whole years previously. Twitter keeps me current. I can go to university and complete a course, but after a VERY short while that knowledge is dated. Twitter is free, always available and keeps you up to date with the very latest ideas.

Models for Learning Questions

Tony Karrer

Yammer (internal twittering) is almost impossible to explain to someone who has no experience with any social networking (and probably not with anything more than email lists). As a side note, I think selling Twitter/Yammer is harder than selling social bookmarking and wikis. Twitter/Yammer is something new. Social bookmarking and wikis are often a smart replacement with obvious side benefits. We wrapped up our free elearning webinar on Models for Learning in a New World.
