What does this mean exactly? 

Blogphilosophy: a plee for appreciating #open academic collaboration - #openscience

Ignatia Webs

The past 5 months have been very exciting thanks to educational colleagues with an interest in mLearning. Without ever having met, and although we only started to exchange knowledge on mLearning from April 2011 onward, this encounter gave rise to several unusual academic collaborations: 2 accepted papers, 2 draft papers in the process of being written, and an opinion paper in the making.

How much learning should be bottom-up?


Throughout 2011 we will be publishing extracts from The New Learning Architect. We move on to the second part of chapter 6: It is conceivable that an organisation could manage without any top-down learning interventions at all, relying on employees who were independent learners, good communicators, willing to share their expertise and keen to support each other. More realistically, an organisation will need to make a judgement about how much will be top-down and how much bottom-up, based on a wide range of factors that will differ enormously both between organisations and within them.

Handy Learning


Last fall Tagoras published an update of its “Learning 2.0 for Associations&# report and I posted briefly on it. Great research is worth more than one look, and this report is no exception. (If you haven’t taken a first look at it yet, stop here and go do that before you do anything else!). couldn’t help making some notes as I perused all of the great examples and the recommendations for various uses of Learning 2.0 options covered in the report.

Steve Jobs steps down: a homage

Challenge to Learn

This week Steve Jobs has resigned as CEO of Apple. Due to his illness he is no longer capable to stay on. I don’t have many heroes but he is one. And not just in his role as CEO. The story of his life is fascinating. Born as an unwanted child of a teen age mother, adopted, college drop-out and then founder of Apple. And he changed my world with his Mac’s, IPod’s, IPhones and IPads.

"Life is too short not to screencast." That was one of my favorite quotes of the weekend at ScreencastCamp by Mark Bly from the New American Conservatory. We just had the first ScreencastCamp earlier this month at TechSmith. ScreencastCamp was an unconference where attendees set the schedule and topics. You can see all the sessions here. It was great to see campers teaching each other and learning.
