Instructivism, constructivism or connectivism?
MARCH 16, 2009
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. 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? Conclusion.

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.

For example, the Articulate twitter page is a good resource for Articulate users since it provides news, tutorials, and links to helpful tips and tricks. With all that said, Twitter is a useful tool. And Twitter is great for that. today.
I Don’t Care What You Had For Lunch: Finding Professional Value in Twitter
JULY 4, 2011
Of course, Twitter was on the list of tools we were nudged to start using on a regular basis. In my mind, at the time, I considered Twitter to be for celebrities to keep fans up to date with their most recent apologies (who cares?) So I dug up my Twitter account information…I had signed up back in early 2009, but never used the account…and started tweeting.

Narrowing Gap between Face-to-Face and Online Presentations
SEPTEMBER 30, 2009
If your audience is already on a laptop and connected wirelessly, then you can use techniques such as Twitter Conference Ideas with twitter as a back-channel or twitter to post links to the audience. However, because of the dramatically different characteristics of Online Conferences and In-Person Conferences and because of the narrowing gap between face-to-face and online presentations – we will see a shift towards more online conferences such as LearnTrends 2009. Are people noticing this? It seems that face-to-face and online presenting are becoming more similar.

LinkedIn Guide for Knowledge Workers
JULY 6, 2009
I do a lot of presentations where one of the topics is how to use LinkedIn more effectively as part of your knowledge work. In most cases, I will ask for a show of hands: How many of you have a LinkedIn Account? Generally 50-70%. How many of you actively use LinkedIn? Generally down to 10%. How many of you get really high value from LinkedIn? - Now down to 2-5% I am continually surprised by this result ( Getting Value from LinkedIn ). I can't remember how I could get things done without LinkedIn. And I consider knowing how to effectively use LinkedIn to be a core Work Literacy.
Adult learning shminciples
SEPTEMBER 28, 2009
Just like you know only Gen-Y Americans are interested in Second Life and only spammers and corporate cowboys use Twitter. In the global game of Corporate Bingo, the term “adult learning principles must be one of the most abused. It’s a convenient abstract that can whitewash a range of unsubstantiated claims and half-truths. But what exactly are adult learning principles?
Conflicting personas: social media as an ‘AND’ role (initially titled ‘AND’ job which is entirely inappropriate, even for this blog)

But first…in case you’re not up to speed on Twitter hashtags, here’s a little explanation. Out of context stuff. Poor partygirl99.

Here’s Why You Need an E-Learning Portfolio
JUNE 16, 2009
The good thing with blogging and other social tools like Facebook , LinkedIn , and Twitter is that you connect with others in the industry. A few weeks ago I announced a job opening. I got about 1000 inquiries and ended up looking at over 200 portfolios. I could have looked at more but I got a lot of emails from people who didn’t have portfolios. They tended to fall into one of two camps.

Learning with e's
DECEMBER 10, 2009
It became a phenomenon in 2009. No, not Twitter. I'm talking about the use of Twitter as a weapon of mass detraction - as a means of heckling keynote speakers at conferences.
