Social Bookmarking for Link Sharing

Tony Karrer

Tony Karrer

I've read a bit from ( here , here , and here ) about Jet Blue's use of web 2.0 / social media tools to communicate between their staff of learning professionals. The Awareness platform includes tools such as blogs, wikis and social bookmarking / tagging. This is another great example of eLearning 2.0. Something I talk about all the time

Tony Karrer

Andrew McAfee has posted about Avenue A Razorfish's (AARF) Intranet that uses Web 2.0 tools as part of information sharing: AARF has built interfaces to the bookmarking site del.icio.us , the photo sharing site Flickr , and Digg , a site where members vote on the importance of news stories. AARF employees have learned to add the tag 'AARF' when they come across a web page (using del.icio.us), a photo (Flickr), or a news story (Digg) that they think will be of interest to their colleagues. All three use tags, or something close. Intranet.

Web 2.0 Tools in the Enterprise

Tony Karrer

I first saw Andrew McAffee's post on uses of Web 2.0 I'd also suggest that part of the reason that I always suggest that Wikis will get faster uptake than things like Blogs and Social Bookmarking is that Wikis can be a better replacement for something else without much behavior change. It's just a really easy way for a group of people to put up web pages. approaches inside of corporations - quite good at identifying some different patterns.

I Believe in the Importance of Personal Knowledge Management

Tom Spiglanin

Sharing knowledge, using any number of media that fit our personal needs, work styles, and professional social networks. Much of this happens on social streams on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, or any number of other media where we connect with our PLNs, so it’s important to develop effective social media practices. Our connections are certainly part of the solution.

Web 2.0 Tools, Networks and Community (Individuals vs. Collective)

Tony Karrer

This is an interesting piece that made me think about the new landscape created by Web 2.0 Traditional online community mechanisms (email lists, groups) are joined by a wide variety of publishing mechanisms (blogs, social bookmarking, wikis, flickr, etc.) This forms a big network of people linked first through content and eventually directly (in person or via social networking). What's really interesting to me is that I'm finding in a web 2.0 In fact, if you think of my online identity as being the collection of blog posts, del.icio.us tools.

In my previous post, I examined Personal Learning for Learning Professionals - Using Web 2.0 That post focused primarily on how Social Bookmarking tools such as del.icio.us or Yahoo My Web can be used as part of Personal Learning.

Digital literacy 6: Organising and sharing content

Learning with e's

The very act of creating content, whether it is a video, blogpost or podcast, is often with the intention that it will be shared in some way, usually on the web.

Instructivism, constructivism or connectivism?

E-Learning Provocateur

In the 1990s, constructivism heralded a new dawn in instructional design, turbo-charged by the rise of Web 2.0.

Social and professional networks such as Facebook and Twitter. Instructivism is dead. Gone are the days of an authoritarian teacher transmitting pre-defined information to passive students. Fast forward to today and connectivism is all the rage. Slippery slope. The real world.
