The equation for change

E-Learning Provocateur

Guns don’t kill people. People do. It’s a well-worn saying that Americans in particular know only too well. And of course it’s technically correct. I don’t fear a gun on the table, but I do fear someone might pick it up and pull the trigger. That’s why I don’t want a gun on the table. Like most extremism, however, it’s an absurd construct. branding? profit?

Quiz Design: Recognizing Types of Learning

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

by Jennie Ruby  Many of us start writing a quiz when we are sitting in front of our quiz-making software, and the software asks us whether we want a multiple-choice question or a true/false. We then go on instinct to make up a question that we feel relates to the topic just covered in the training. But this method, although it will arrive at a functional quiz that our learner can click through, may not be accurately doing what a quiz should do. And what should a quiz do? Well, measure the learning, of course. What's that you say? You didn't write objectives? that is a skill.

Learning subverts business entropy

Learning and Working on the Web

When Harold Jarche says work is learning and learning is the work , I think he’s suggesting that for a business to thrive, it must place learning at the heart of everything it does. Purposeful learning. Learning that is not “training” as we have visioned it up till now. Any training that is disconnected from the people is not sufficient. Learning that is not about the work is not sufficient.

Negating the learner in the learning process

George Siemens

Yesterday, a Coursera course was closed after the first week of delivery. 40,000 students were left somewhat confused. posted a few thoughts on this on our xeducation site. The interesting stuff is in the comments and that’s what I’d like to emphasize here. Sarah Pravitra states: Wish they could at least have left the forums open for a limited period so we could have grabbed our group members, found a new tribe home elsewhere to keep talking and working together and been able to share [o]ur whereabouts with other groups. have never worked so hard in my life. Up till 4am every night.

Posted in SKETCHNOTES Planning a drawing by sketching it out in pencil first and finishing it in ink later is quite different than live sketching with a pen.

Emotional Business

Jay Cross

D R A F T. Some of you have inquired about my research into happiness and well-being. I paused the project for six weeks. Upon return, I realized there’s a lot more to it. Emotional business (which I will christen EB right here and now) concerns precisely the same thing it takes to replace 19th-20th century management with Management 3.0: treating people like people. It takes trust to tango.
