2010: My blogging year recapped

E-Learning Provocateur

As 2010 draws to a close, I thought I’d take a moment to recap my blog posts during the year. • Theory-informed instructional design tips. • Art vs (Information) Science. Informal learning. • Art vs (Information) Science.

Informal Learning - 2010

eLearning Cyclops

Informal learning (a.k.a. I think there is little doubt that it will grow further in 2010, but I also expect it to find more of a foothold in corporate training departments where its adoption been a challenge. Now I know there are corporate training departments that have embraced informal learning, but those are the more innovative companies. Remember, you cannot truly manage informal learning, but you can facilitate learning along with coaching others to facilitate learning.

eLearning Innovation 2010 – Top 30

Tony Karrer

I had an interesting conversation the other day about whether there’s that much new going on in eLearning here in 2010. That said – I’m still under the impression that my central eLearning Predictions for 2010 is going to come true. At the end of the year, we will be saying: “Wow, 2010 was a crazy year!” But I also thought I’d cheat and use what eLearning Learning is telling me the hotter topics are for the first 3 months of 2010.

2010 in Review Part 3: My year in reflective blogging

Jane Hart

2010 in Review Part 4: Top 100 articles of 2010 2010 in Review Part 3: My year in reflective blogging On December 28, 2010, in Uncategorized , by Jane Hart During 2010 I used my two blogs (Jane's Pick of the Day and Social Media for Working and Learning ) to reflect on the impact of social media on learning,  the changing shape of workplace learning, as well as my own use of social media for professional use. 

2010 Predictions - Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

January's Big Question at the Learning Circuits blog asks for our 2010 predictions. I think the growing popularity of social media apps on mobile devices will assist with a growth of social learning (I consider social/informal learning on mobile devices m-learning too). Tablets will be very popular in 2010 and eventually some will add ability to effectively display reader friendly book text. So, here we go; m-Learning continues to grow.

Open Learning Network vs Informal Learning Environment

E-Learning Provocateur

Mine is the Informal Learning Environment (ILE). Within such a framework, any tool can securely interact with any other tool, passing user IDs and course and role information. It formalises the informal. In the workplace, however, the vast majority of learning is informal.

Filtering, Crowdsourcing and Information Overload

Tony Karrer

The other part of this thought process is that the feedback on my Top 10 eLearning Predictions for 2010 was that I should have Information Overload and Information Filtering as my user chosen prediction number 10.

Information Filtering

Tony Karrer

One of the main points he makes is: In early 2010 it is pretty obvious that nobody needs an other Web portal. We’ve got plenty of information sources already. At the same time, we need lots of help filtering the flood of information. Harold is a master of that and effectively uses twitter, RSS reader and lots of other sources to bring across and filter information. My strong belief is that there is more and more of a need for effective information filtering.

Theory-informed design tips

E-Learning Provocateur

In my previous article , I proposed a Taxonomy of Learning Theories to organise a few of the myriad of theories into some semblance of order, and to assist instructional designers in using theory to inform their work. • Develop an informal VLE to centralise all the resources.

Reflections on ISPI 2010

Clark Quinn

I challenged one of the editors of their handbook, Volume 1 (which I previously complained didn’t have enough on informal learning and engagement) about the lack of coverage of mobile learning, and he opined that mobile was just a “delivery channel&#. Early in the year, I gave a presentation online to the Massachusetts chapter of ISPI (the international society for performance improvement), and they rewarded me with a membership.

Media Design 101 – Presenting Information

Upside Learning

As a learner, I need to understand the information that is presented; or else that information is of no use to me. Media design needs to focus on this critical transformation of information. This post focuses on some basic design principles — specifically pertaining to the presentation of information, detailing what it takes to design a better learning experience. Organize the information on the page clearly and in a logical flow —.

Online Tools for Evaluating Informal Learning

The Peformance Improvement

Learning occurs in "informal" (another term that I don’t like but is gaining traction) settings and online, as well as in the classroom. How can we know what is learned informally and what difference that learning makes to the success of an organization? Some of the methods being used in informal science education could be applied more broadly to informal and online learning in business, nonprofit, and government settings.
