FEBRUARY 5, 2012 The 21st Century Curator
Whether we depend on others to provide us with curated content or wedecide to become curators in our area(s) of expertise or interest, the need forcuration as a sense making and PKM activity is undeniable. If Web 1.0 was aboutonline access and Web 2.0 is about social nets, Web 3.0 will be coring down tocontent that really matters. How we put our curation skills to use iswhat makes us unique.

JANUARY 1, 2011 2010 in Retrospect: Top Few Blogs and Books
This is a quick recap and a list of the posts, articles, and books that have shaped my thinking, provided me with insights and supported or challenged my assumptions. This post should have made its appearance a few days back—at least a day back—but procrastination sometimes overtakes me. This time, it was compounded by the lure of spending more time with my daughter (since I am in Mumbai after quite a few months) and the writing of the post just never got done. But I have promised myself that this year I will turn more ideas into actions and will not let procrastination rule.

DECEMBER 27, 2011 Content Curation: One More Role for an Enterprise Community Manager
This in the context of a social business platform like Jive requires--among other things--consistent tagging, proper aggregation, enabling quick search options, providing guided navigations for frequently accessed pieces, and grouping of similar groups and content in an appropriate manner. Faced with the tsunami of information, we are all floundering to find our way to content that actually matters. From setting up filters--both of the automated and human variety--to trying to make sense of what we find, we are in a fix, so to speak. The scene within an enterprise is not much different.

DECEMBER 18, 2011 The Seventh Hat of a Community Manager: UX Design
Provide visual cues to help users navigate. Allow users to provide feedback easily, perhaps via aneasily accessible feedback link from the Home page. "Nothing important should ever be more than two clicksaway", said Steve Krug in his classic Don't Make Me Think ! This is anexcellent thumb rule for designers--and as I got into my role of a communitymanager--I learned the value of this rule for community managers as well. Ihave recently blogged about The Six Hats of a Community Manager , and here isthe seventh one. Does a community manager need to become an UX expert?

DECEMBER 28, 2010 21st Century Workplace Challenges
Passion: Our internal engines provide the fuel that spurs us to action. The paragraph below taken from Harold Jarche’s post Success depends on who we work with reminded me of a post I had written some time back, the Molotov cocktail = Weak ties x complicated knowledge. have pasted the quote below: 1. Uzzi found that teams made up of individuals who had never before worked together fared poorly, greatly increasing the chance of a flop. These networks were not well connected and contained mostly weak ties. This has been extensively discussed by Morten T. What is required is diversity!

AUGUST 6, 2010 Mobile Learning: e-learningnext
Duke University made headlines when it provided all incoming freshmen with their own 20 -gigabyte iPods. Why Mobile Learning The strongest Value Proposition for mobile learning comes from connecting people with ideas, information, and each other—anytime, anywhere! Ten years back, Clark Quinn’s statement about mobile learning seemed wishful thinking. It has arrived. Some of these include: 1.

ID REFLECTIONS Learned vs. Learners
| SATURDAY, DECEMBER 25, 2010
More importantly, are those the kind of work that will provide
us with the indispensable competitive edge? I have been deviating from the key themes of this blog, i.e., learning, performance, training and collaboration, for some time now. However, the deviations have been topics that moved me deeply, and I did not want to write about them in a separate blog. They are as much a part of me as all things learning. In the future too, I see this blog being intermittently peppered with posts unrelated to organizational learning but delineating experiences that are of personal import. My Aha! MORE >>
ID REFLECTIONS The Adventures of Developing an e-learning Course!
| SATURDAY, MAY 15, 2010
Who can provide
assets like logos, images, and documentation? have added some questions that I have found useful to ask Who provides
the final sign-off? Whose buy-in do you require to ensure that there is post-rollout support provided
to the learners? Mistake #1: I forgot to verify with the stakeholders if the SME who had provided
the content would also be the same one reviewing and providing
feedback on the storyboards. What insights has the task analysis provided
about performance, hitches faced during on-the-job performance? Who are the SMEs? MORE >>

ID REFLECTIONS Love-Hate Theory, Learner Motivation, Connectivism and Other Such Thoughts.
| SUNDAY, AUGUST 23, 2009
Supporting Theory : An understanding of Constructivism and Behaviorism helps in designing training solutions using instructional strategies that leverage the existing knowledge, provide
feedback at critical points to reinforce the correct “learning” and act as deterrent for the incorrect behavior. Preamble I missed IDCI session yesterday but am thankful for the tweets from @gargamit100 and @sreyadutta. These followed by Sreya’s post gave me some idea of the discussion. You can read the post here: Business-driven Learning and LH Theory (Love-Hate Theory). MORE >>
ID REFLECTIONS Adaptive Thinking, Deliberate Practice, and Complexity
| MONDAY, JANUARY 3, 2011
Focused feedback : Coaches/trainers are at hand to provide
corrective feedback and help the learners model their behaviors. In military parlance, the term Adaptive Thinking has been used to describe the cognitive behavior of an officer who is confronted by unanticipated circumstances during the execution of a planned military operation. It refers to the thinking a leader must do to adapt operations to the requirements of unfolding events and is thus a key component of competency in battle command. Adaptive Thinking is a behavior. In short, this helps us to deal with complex situations. MORE >>
