4 Ways to use Curation in Learning
DECEMBER 16, 2013
Here L&D looks beyond providing highly structured courses and towards individual resources. BP adopts this approach. I’m getting very excited about the possibilities of using more digital curation in learning. The trouble with curation is that I’m seeing it everywhere. Aggregation is the same thing, but done within a formal learning context. Aggregation. Integration.
Open Badges; issuing with the xAPI
MAY 25, 2015
What we need is a modern recognition system for learning that can tap into the evidence provided by the xAPI and provide context for all that activity. Online learning is becoming more complex. It’s social, gamified, blended, active, synchronous, informal and all the rest of it. Bryan Mathers; CC BY-SA 2.0 But this data is often too granular to be meaningful on a wider scale.
5 learning tech buzzwords worth defending
DECEMBER 1, 2014
Where badges can go beyond certification is in providing the evidence for why a badge was issued. Again, Mozilla Open Badges provide the framework. This post first appeared in the October edition of Inside Learning Technologies. Perhaps it’s time to change our framing. We’re very good at saying what won’t work, but we’re less good at highlighting what might work. Big Data. Badges.

The trouble with owning your own learning data
JULY 16, 2013
How can we do this in a framework that is open enough to provide free-choice, but scaffold so that you actually know how to begin. In the next couple of weeks we’ll release our beta version of Learning Locker.

Learning Locker: it’s your data
MAY 23, 2013
In a nutshell, Learning Locker provides a destination where users can create a personal locker housing their learning data that they can then put to work for them. To provide deeper analysis we store the full JSON object in a NoSQL database, so, over time, we can drill into the data exposing insights that we hope will lead to useful services for learners; helping predict learning paths, highlight areas of strength, topics needing addressed and so on. We are currently testing an early prototype and will shortly solicit volunteers interested in providing feedback on the service.
The Ubiquity of Informal Learning: Beyond the 70/20/10 Model
OCTOBER 25, 2011
The EDC research is often cited as providing the corroborating evidence for suggesting that 70% of workplace learning is informal in nature, but it makes no reference to the 20% or 10% part of the model. This post first appeared at Learning Solutions Magazine. So I’ve had a bit of a bugbear for a while and I’m starting to feel that I’m not alone. It’s 70/20/10, the oft-quoted model from which we derive that the majority of learning happens from on the job experience, as opposed to learning from peers or in a formal learning environment. Learning Styles “seemed to fit.” References.

The former is more concerned with meaningful relationships which we build with other people and how they help to provide the context for our learning. Of course, you don’t want to get together to take on a challenge and find some other group already in the dungeon (how often does that happen at work), so each challenge has the ability to provide a unique instance of itself for your group. Much fuss is made of class-size effects in schools, but I often get blank stares when I talk about the dangers of putting 10,000 people together in an online learning environment.
FutureLearn MOOCs; the future of learning?
OCTOBER 15, 2013
FutureLearn looks like it knows this; if it set out to deliver highly usable and highly accessible learning, it has. If it set out to provide a revolution in online teaching, it has not. This week saw the launch of FutureLearn’s first course, The Power of Brands. FutureLearn is the UK’s answer to Coursera, EdX and the like. It is good to finally see the UK coming to the party with MOOCs in a coherent manner, something that has been sorely lacking over the last 12 months. I’d signed up a while ago, so I was keen to get stuck in…. The discourse is an after-thought.

Managing the Social Learning Mess: Auto-curating content
MARCH 15, 2010
Curators also go beyond these functions and use learning objects to tell us a story, providing deeper insight into what would otherwise be just a collection of ‘things’. Let us suppose that we’ve created a social approach to online learning, where-by our users not only take content from our Learning Environment, but actively add content to it as a part of their participation. One of the biggest problems facing those tasked with administrating such a platform is going to be information overload. What is required is a method of ‘Curating’ the content that your learners contribute.
Your organisations next Facebook policy
NOVEMBER 12, 2009
Currently, in order to get close to any of the benefits that a website like Facebook could provide your company, you first have to jump over all of the associated ‘risks’ that get thrown at you. So then let’s look to embrace the opportunity that providing access to Facebook will give us. I’m going to go beyond the normally recognised benefits (of which there are many) and move the discussion to one key area of objection: Time-wasting. Do this until more work arrives. It’s a mindset, one of a previous generation. Recent UK figures have shown nearly 2.5 This sucks.
