ASTD TechKnowledge 2009 is coming to Las Vegas in January. methods to see examples of where and how tools such as social networks, social bookmarking, wikis, blogs, and RSS readers fit into day-to-day knowledge work and larger learning solutions. Personal, collaborative, and informal learning methods are emerging that leverage tools such as blogs, wikis, social bookmarking, and RSS readers. I'm doing two sessions including a keynote / general session - descriptions below. These changes are continuously transforming the landscape for knowledge work.
TechKnowledge in Las Vegas
DECEMBER 11, 2006
I'll be doing several sessions at TechKnowledge in Las Vegas at the end of January. The sessions are on the use of Blogs and Social Bookmarking as part of Personal and Group Learning. If you are going to the conference, let me know. It's always nice to meet in person. I just saw a post by Jay Cross that discusses possible discounts to TK2007 hotels
ASTD TechKnowledge 2007 - Opening Sessions
JANUARY 31, 2007
I'm at the opening session at ASTD TechKnowledge ( [link] ). I'll soon be doing a session on Blogging and Social Bookmarking for Personal and Group Learning. Tony Bingham, President of ASTD, is doing his introduction, and his content is: Web 2.0, personal learning, easy distribution of software (software as a service), video is here now, push to pull, teaching Gen Y (what he calls the netGeneration). What a great setup for my presentation. Thanks Tony. And, it's somewhat surprising to see a relatively slow moving organization, ASTD, driving this discussion.
Web 2.0 Applications in Learning
MARCH 3, 2008
Last week I presented a session at ASTD TechKnowledge entitled eLearning 2.0 - Applications and Implications. Question 1 - What are the most likely ways / places your organization might or does use Blogs, Wikis, Social Bookmarking, Social Networking or Collaboration Tools? IBM I only briefly mentioned how other organizations are adopting these tools in a big way - The Wall Street Journal - June 18 2007 - social networking at IBM 26,000 registered blogs. It could just as easily have been called Web 2.0 Applications in Learning. Provide the content. Tools?
eLearing 2.0 - Great Response and Some Feedback
JUNE 4, 2007
Most of the audience wasn't familiar with social bookmarking. Applications I did something along these lines (two presentations) at ASTD TechKnowledge 2007, but many people came to the Applications presentation without having attended the 101 presentation. I did my eLearning 2.0 presentation at ASTD 2007. There were over 200 people and it was standing room only. Someone told me that lots of folks couldn't get in. Lots of good energy in the room. The audience was about half very new people to training and eLearning and the rest had varying levels of experience. When and Why?
Personal Publishing - Balance of Blog vs. PPT+Audio â€“ Help Needed
OCTOBER 23, 2006
And this is especially timely for me, since I'm going to be making choices around it as I begin to pull together content for ASTD TechKnowledge and my blog on the topic of blogging and social bookmarking I received a comment from Jesse Ezell that brings up an issue that I've been grappling with and I would love to get some input (comments) from everyone who reads this blog. Jesse saw a post where I pointed to slides from a recent presentation and he commented: A PPT slide deck is a horrible way to convey anything significant. I can completely understand his sentiment.
