Twitter: Le triple filtre

Learning with e's

I've been discussing the merits of Twitter as a professional social network recently in conversation with colleagues. One of the regular objections to using Twitter professionally is that there is too great a noise-to-signal ratio. But they should also realise that Twitter can actually save them time if used in an appropriate manner. Happy Twittering! don't blame them.

What does 2011 look like for consultants?

Spark Your Interest

2011 is 1/12th over and thanks to my exalted status as thought leader (!!) for the BQ, I am compelled to write my predictions for 2011. Social learning is still a fuzzy concept.  It’s hard to claim expertise in this area.  It isn’t simply a matter of slapping a blog up or creating a twitter hashtag to gather class discussion.  It is important that consultants treat technology as a tool, and recognize that the secret is to figure out how to engage learners in the use of it and create context. Others have put together a ton of great predictions already.

Twiitering = learning?

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

Sometimes people might say: ' Ok, but twitter is not learning. From a behaviourism point of view, twitter might not be very relevant as a means for learning.

Twitter’s Impact on Your Brain-Same as Bilingualism

Kapp Notes

This is much like what people do when they’re updating their Twitter status, instant-messaging friends, or answering text messages and emails while they’re doing something else. Studies on infant brains have shown that knowledge retention is only possible when accompanied with personal interaction or activity, but this becomes even more important as people get older. Adults must be socially stimulated to learn, which is why language retention is usually only successful for adults when they are immersed with other language-speakers. social media

Unlike Facebook or Twitter where one accesses the ‘firehose’ of data that one subscribes to and is dependent on the Friends/Following, and where users mostly use features like groups/lists etc to sort out noise from the stream, Plus uses a different approach and lets users create ‘circles’ that allow them to separate streams.
