    As you might imagine, this upsets me.  I work hard to put worthwhile information out.  I expect to at least get credit for it, given that it provides no direct revenue (yep, still ad-free).  To have someone take my intellectual property and redistribute under their banner, without at least providing a pointer back strikes me as less than appropriate.  I note Jeff Cobb is getting credit. He preceded me in the use of Creative Commons licensing, but from his example (and Harold Jarche), I placed a BY – NC – SA license in the side bar. attribution). Why not me? strategy

    This analysis provides 3 meaningful levels of interactivity for defining content, and indicates what is currently feasible and what still provides barriers for mobile as well.  A while ago, I characterized the stages of web development as: Web 1.0: producer-generated content, where you had to be able to manage a server and work in obscure codes. Web 2.0: user-generated content, where web tools allowed anyone to generate web content. Web 3.0: More recently, interactivity has been proposed as a item to tag within learning object systems to differentiate objects.  Fingers crossed!

    And that includes Cross’ informal learning.  We need to go beyond just the formal courses, and provide ways for people to self-help, and group-help. There’s both a top-down and bottom-up component to this.  At the bottom, we’re analyzing how to meet learner needs, whether it’s fully wrapped with motivation, or just the necessary information, or providing the opportunity to work with others to answer the question.  It’s about infusing our design approaches with a richer picture, respecting our learner’s time, interests, and needs. However, it’s not enough.

    [Providers] Stop Pushing Top Talent Out the Door
    Study after study provides evidence that employees perform best and stay longest when their bosses are respectful, listen to employees, and support high levels of engagement. To hang on to those folks, companies will have to provide high quality training, coaching, mentoring, and tools for self-directed learning. The tendency of some managers in a recessionary economy is to revert to a command-and-control style of leadership. This is risky business. Those managers risk creating a suboptimum work environment and driving out their top talent. This is great advice.

I choose to sit in on this session as the combination of integrating multiple contexts into mobile learning design is quite a challenge.

    For example, if we do not provide appropriate redressal of grievances that emerge from an analysis of the data, we are not truly open. I believe we have to seriously think about what open-ness means for Indian education. There are many dimensions to being open that extend beyond merely making data available for public accountability and transparency. The thing about being open is that it threatens to disrupt tightly closed systems. In our schools, for example, the dominant mindset seems to be to stifle and restrict the voice of students and parents; and in most cases even teachers.

    Suppose you’ve only provided enough information at the start of a lesson to help learners ease into some initial practice. By Shelley A. Gable. typical training design is to start by telling learners everything we want them to know about a topic or a task, and then we eventually give them an opportunity to practice. For a training project I recently started, a team member said something that resonated with me: Let’s make sure learners are practicing this stuff as early as possible. That’s not to say we should push learners into practicing a task they’re completely unprepared for.
