The grassroots of learning
OCTOBER 22, 2014
I had read a few blog posts by Dave Cormier (the godfather of the philosophy) and I follow the intrepid Soozie Bea (a card-carrying disciple), but unfortunately I missed Dave’s #rhizo14 mooc earlier in the year. Here’s a common scenario: I “quickly” look up something on Wikipedia, and hours later I have 47 tabs open as I delve into tangential aspects of the topic.
There’s an Alternative to Leadership Development
JULY 6, 2016
Bea Carson is the president and director of affiliate development for the World Institute for Action, and president and owner of Carson Consultants.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning
MARCH 3, 2008
Last week I presented a session at ASTD TechKnowledge entitled eLearning 2.0 - Applications and Implications. It could just as easily have been called Web 2.0 Applications in Learning. It was designed to be a small to medium size group discussion, but because the room was large it was very challenging to do that successfully. I discussed a bit of these issues in First Thoughts After ASTD Sessions. I'm writing this post for both attendees of the session to have some notes and for people who were not at the session to hopefully get value from the discussion that happened there. as I expected.

I was reading the collaboration section of a magazine geared to IT professionals when I came upon an article titled Cat-Herding Nightmare. The first paragraph echoes the Web 2.0-is-good-for-you party line I’ve heard again and again this week: Web 2.0 Warning to IT folks: Mayday! Mayday!
