How to Learn from a Conference You Aren’t Attending

Mindflash

Continuous professional development is a critical part of a trainer’s work. We often think of it from the perspective of our learners, but need to think of it from our personal perspective as well.I think of this now as I prepare to attend the ASTD International Conference and Exposition next week in Denver.

Did Cavemen Use Social Learning?

Living in Learning

The discovery of fire sparked [.sorry] sorry] the first social learning moment and the true application of learning. Two knuckleheads, Igg Nyte and Puut Emowt, made the discovery on a Thursday many years ago. Back in those days there was not a lot of dialog exchanged, and as such, there were not a lot of labels to confuse or skew what something might be. What mattered about learning was reduced to its simplest form - what could you DO with whatever you learned. Maybe we need a little more simplicity in our search for effectiveness. Igg and Puut figured it out, and they were both knuckleheads.

The Next Generation of SCORM

Learning Developments

I first heard about SCORM when I was working for a software company that created collaborative learning tools for higher education. We were using Microsoft Word to create SCORM compatible content. This was back in 2006 and I remember a lot of folks did not understand the value of converting content to SCORM because it seemed so outdated and there were much more current development projects that needed to get done. It wasn't until I got a job in corporate learning that I realized just how important SCORM was. SCORM itself is outdated. It is pretty boring and uncreative. LMS SCORM

What I’m doing here is not that, but instead reporting on three books, only one of which has an explicit discussion of implications for both education and work. Still, valuable insight comes from all three. meta-learning
