Instructivism, constructivism or connectivism?

E-Learning Provocateur

In a previous article , I provided the following examples of potential information sources that the learner could incorporate into their personal learning network: Social bookmarks. Social and professional networks such as Facebook and Twitter. 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. Fast forward to today and connectivism is all the rage. Slippery slope. The real world.

Twitter for learning

Sticky Learning

Why wouldn't you use Twitter?! I've only been actively participating on Twitter for 4-5 months now. 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. The people I follow find links to articles and research that I'd never come across, I can't always find time to read it on the spot so I save many links to my Delicious page (social bookmarking site) for later (and to provide others with access to all the links and sites I've found interesting). Twitter keeps me current.

I’m going to reflect on what I’ve been up to in 2009 thus far. Winter 2009. MacWorld : learning infrastructure and social network infrastructure are converging.

Some astute companies are exploring how a social learning community can remove barriers separating customer and corporation. Spring 2009.

A few of the tools and methods I use to tap into the social grid. I asked via Twitter and in the session for other tools/methods that people use for Tapping into Your Social Grid.

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. We also have so many more kinds of solutions we can offer. Not sure.

Beware of Social Learning Backlash

eLearning Weekly

I’m finding out that the old adage, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink&# has some major significance when it comes to introducing social learning (specifically, social learning tools) at an organization. In fact, even worse things can happen if you don’t market your offerings correctly… When introducing social learning tools and concepts, it’s easy to get excited and anxious to share our findings. On a sidenote, it doesn’t help that many of the social media and social learning tools have goofy names.

Access = Learning

eLearning Development

Times are changing, people are growing up with Google, Digg, Facebook, Del.icio.us, RSS feeds, and Twitter. Learning is about access to information. The more information people have available to them, the more likely they are to learn. Sounds pretty obvious, right? After all, Google has turned into the greatest job support/learning tool ever created because it gives us instant access to the information we need, when we need it. Why should we treat learning in our organizations any differently? The learning landscape is moving beyond the concept of a course. Remember the newspaper?

Social Media included Twitter, Screenr videos, and Diigo social bookmarks. This time does not include ongoing learner support using social media and Intranet pages.
