Social Media for Trainers: Filled with Great Ideas and Techniques

Kapp Notes

Social Media for Trainers is a great book for understanding the ways to leverage social media to extend training beyond the traditional four walls. She starts with a basic description of social media and then covers all the biggies, Twitter, Facebook(online communities), Blogs, and wikis. Instead she continues to describe other tools from Google (Wave and Docs), YouTube, TeacherTube and a half a dozen others. And even though Google Wave is no longer supported, I have a number of students who are using it for group work, so I have found the information useful.

eLearning Cyclops

January's Big Question at the Learning Circuits blog asks for our 2010 predictions. think the growing popularity of social media apps on mobile devices will assist with a growth of social learning (I consider social/informal learning on mobile devices m-learning too).

The Learning Generalist

The clamour for social and informal learning is getting louder each day if you believe the Internet Time Group.

Madness with method: Shakespeare on social media

eLearning Predictions Further Thoughts

Tony Karrer

I recently posted my Top 10 eLearning Predictions for 2010 and did a presentation on the topic. Social Learning Communities It was interesting that ASTD DC / Todd Slater has created a Ning community. That certainly goes along with what we’ve done with LearnTrends and what’s going on with social learning. If you are working for a company that falls in the first category (no social media please), its better that you install a Twitter mobile app on your cell phone and not use the office computer at all for tweeting.

eLearn Magazine’s 2010 Predictions

Jay Cross

Four members of Internet Time Alliance submitted their thoughts to eLearn Magazine’s 2010 Predictions. Wave Crests. Google Wave is already set to become a very popular tool this year, and I think it represents the way that tools are going to evolve in the near future, that is that the social functionality found in standalone tools is going to merge and become amalgamated into more integrated “learning&# tools.

Can't collaborate without being colocated? Maybe you're not 'Agile enough'

The Learning Generalist

Dinesh and I recently submitted a proposal to Agile 2010 to demonstrate how we're seeing teams adapt their way of working to ensure that distribution doesn't mean disaster! Using a combination of enterprise social software and tools on the public internet, teams can actually make distribution seem much easier than we've traditionally made it out to be. Tools - How?

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! However, being a student of the social web, I jumped right in. So my point is, I was not enthusiastic.
