Social Media for Trainers: Filled with Great Ideas and Techniques

Kapp Notes

So this is wild for me, first time I am a tour stop on a blog book tour! I've been an author on blog book tours but now I get to be a stop on a tour and I couldn't be happier to be a stop for my friend and prolific author, Jane Bozarth. She starts with a basic description of social media and then covers all the biggies, Twitter, Facebook(online communities), Blogs, and wikis.

Buzz without the munchies

Janet Clarey

So I sit down at my desk this morning, opened up Gmail as I always do and noticed Google Buzz. read like 61 trillion tweets about  Google Buzz over the past few days so, of course, I was fatigued with it to begin with. Tweets, blog posts, RSS feed just loaded with it. I was expecting someone to say at breakfast,  &# hey, did you try Google Buzz…what’s that about?&# (no one would ever say that to me at breakfast though… make me eggs!

The Learning Generalist

Teams are quick to adopt tools like Media Wiki or Google Sites to create collaborative workspaces. Wikis and cloud computing using platforms like Google Apps are making this almost an out of box exercise.

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Take blogs, for example. Blogs were geeky lists of pointers and commentary. Then the public embraced blogs. There are more than 100 million blogs.

Answering the Question: How Do We Keep Up

Kapp Notes

For example, Google's Wave was all the rage a while back and, while it is interesting, I am not that engaged with it. This Month's ASTD Big Question is simple and comple x--"How do we keep up?" Being in the field of instructional technology and teaching it to others--my students, consulting clients and others--it can be a real struggle to make sure I am on the cutting edge of what is happening.

The Learning Generalist

It was a great week at the Agile 2010 conference and it's very exciting to see that we're almost moving to an age of Agile pragmatism - what some will call post-modern Agile. I've used tools like Google Wave (soon to be discontinued) and Google Moderator for this. It's often surprising to me how many misgivings and naivety gets attached to Agile. I'm no Agile guru.
