Reflections on Twitter and social networking

Clark Quinn

I’ve been using Twitter for a number of weeks now, and that, combined with several recent social networking activities prompted this reflection.  The Work Literacy one on Learning 2.0 Twitter is a different story; described as micro-blogging, it’s more immediate, more a pointer.  Many of the people to track are sharing their interesting discoveries.  Sometimes it’s just personal things, which gives them richer dimension.  That’s cool, as it provides more ways for interaction.  I like seeing what people are up to, as well.

The most common question at these is, 'so what have you been up to lately?" I respond, 'well I'm becoming more and more interested in the use of social media and microblogging for learning', I then get puzzled looks that say, "too much time on your hands", "what is he talking about?" For me though I see a real role for social media as a platform for business learning.

Fish are the last to recognise water = informal learning?

I just twittered a thought - 'The benefit of Informal learning is that fish are the last to recognise water' - and then I started thinking. This is the real essence of informal learning. People become so engrossed in what they are doing that they don't see that they are learning - until they have learnt (if this makes sense?) So what does this mean for workplace learning?

Learning 2.0 Formal Methodologies – More thoughts

Viplav Baxi Meanderings

The author takes the formal dimensions of traditional learning – objectives, time, measurement, improvement and content or knowledge – and maps them to Learning 2.0, defined loosely as a combination of social networks, collaboration, and the rest. Blogs aren’t a teaching tool, and you shouldn’t just expect to use Web 2.0 tools to do Learning 1.0 Learning 2.0 My main assumption was these are generic to learning – whether traditional learning or learning 2.0 – and I want to test that assumption.
