Tony Karrer

ASTD TechKnowledge 2009 is coming to Las Vegas in January. methods to see examples of where and how tools such as social networks, social bookmarking, wikis, blogs, and RSS readers fit into day-to-day knowledge work and larger learning solutions. Personal, collaborative, and informal learning methods are emerging that leverage tools such as blogs, wikis, social bookmarking, and RSS readers. I'm doing two sessions including a keynote / general session - descriptions below. These changes are continuously transforming the landscape for knowledge work.

Tony Karrer

I'm at the opening session at ASTD TechKnowledge ( [link] ). I'll soon be doing a session on Blogging and Social Bookmarking for Personal and Group Learning. Tony Bingham, President of ASTD, is doing his introduction, and his content is: Web 2.0, And, it's somewhat surprising to see a relatively slow moving organization, ASTD, driving this discussion. personal learning, easy distribution of software (software as a service), video is here now, push to pull, teaching Gen Y (what he calls the netGeneration). What a great setup for my presentation. Thanks Tony.

First Thoughts After ASTD Sessions

Tony Karrer

I'm on the flight back from ASTD TechKnowledge and thought I should try to capture some initial thoughts from the conference and sessions while it was still fresh and before life clouds my memory. Almost no one was familiar with social bookmarking. I'm going to do a similar presentation in June at ASTD ICE in San Diego. Oh, and I just saw that Kevin Jones posted his thoughts around the session: TK08 - Tony Karrer and Implementation of Social Learning. I did two sessions and face time at the conference. I also had some really good lunch conversations. Yikes.

Consider alternative instructional strategies, like adding social media technologies and informal approaches. Check out many of the groups on LinkedIn and Facebook as well as professional organizations like The eLearning Guild and ASTD. Share this on del.icio.us.

and the rapid rise of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other communications platforms have made one thing abundantly clear: Everything is social. As the workforce grows to include more Millennials – digital natives who spend nearly four hours per day on social networking sites – the social impact on training cannot be overstated. According to a 2011 ASTD report , social media enables learning by providing platforms for people to exchange information, facilitating communication, personalizing the learning experience, and supporting informal learning.

Conference Session Breakout

Tony Karrer

The session will be workforce learning professionals (an ASTD audience). I'm trying to get them to think about the question "How might you use Blogs, Wikis, Social Bookmarking, Social Networking, Collaboration Tools in your organization?" I was pulling together my slides for ASTD TechKnowledge and had planned to do a small group breakout and then have each group contribute to the larger group. Update: 12/19/2007. There has been great discussion in the comments. I wanted to provide a bit more context for this. Original post. It's a tired old fossil of a format.

eLearing 2.0 - Great Response and Some Feedback

Tony Karrer

presentation at ASTD 2007. Most of the audience wasn't familiar with social bookmarking. Applications I did something along these lines (two presentations) at ASTD TechKnowledge 2007, but many people came to the Applications presentation without having attended the 101 presentation. Out of ASTD TK 2007 and the eLearningGuild, I know at least a few people have taken my presentation to heart. Let's see if that's true with ASTD. I did my eLearning 2.0 There were over 200 people and it was standing room only. Lots of good energy in the room. When and Why?

During my presentation last Thursday that was an introduction to eLearning 2.0 as part of an online event for the eLearningGuild, I mentioned a few common ways that I've seen eLearning 2.0 approaches. One thing I really like about the list is how tactical they are. These make sense.

eLearning 2.0 Random Thoughts based on Chat

Tony Karrer

presentation were much more sophisticated that audiences at ASTD, ISPI and even the eLearningGuild. Social Bookmarking and Wikis and Blogs are a form of social networking I never said this, but several people pointed it out in the chat. The same thing can be true with social bookmarking, wikis, flickr, etc. Using social bookmarking or meme tracking works okay. Going back through the back chat / back channel during my presentation was really interesting to me. That's multitasking! how can more hear about participating? Very good point.

And this is especially timely for me, since I'm going to be making choices around it as I begin to pull together content for ASTD TechKnowledge and my blog on the topic of blogging and social bookmarking Jesse saw a post where I pointed to slides from a recent presentation and he commented: A PPT slide deck is a horrible way to convey anything significant.
