Beware who's selling informal learning

Clive on Learning

There is no doubt whatsoever in my mind that historically we have underplayed the importance of informal learning, whether that's experiential, on-demand or social. I'm equally convinced that, with the proliferation of great social networking tools and the ever-increasing confidence that learners are displaying when it comes to managing their own learning, informal learning should rightfully play a central role in our future learning architectures. informal learning

Doctoring the Informal Learning Environment

E-Learning Provocateur

Recently Anne Marie blogged Location and Learning (which I have reproduced here) and she asked me whether or not I consider her central idea an example of an Informal Learning Environment (ILE). On the contrary, I believe formal and informal modes of delivery complement each other.

Over-engineered for information transfer, under-engineered for learning

Clive on Learning

First when I sat in for a day judging for The E-Learning Awards and second during the Demo Fest at DevLearn 2011 here in Las Vegas. We over-engineer for information transfer and we under-engineer for learning. Mostly, the developers of these programmes are going to these lengths because they know that they're really just passing over information. But surely all that matters is that the information is relevant and useful.

Wiki, although one of the most powerful sources of information, is one of the most under-utilized and underestimated feature of an LMS. January was a month of varied topics.

Reflections 2011

Clark Quinn

Another area of excitement is social and informal learning. On this, the shortest day of the year here in the northern hemisphere, it seems like a good time to reflect on the past year and look forward to the coming one. It’s certainly been an interesting year, and a good one personally. I feel there are lots of reasons to hope for good things to be coming too. The opportunities are big. First of all, mobile really has taken off.

Can Bill Gates Lead the Informal Learning Revolution?

Dashe & Thomson

This organization will build a set of game-based pedagogical tools and game-design curricula that can be used within both formal and informal learning contexts. It appears the informal learning push is making its way into schools as well.

2011 Predictions

Clark Quinn

The second part is a bit of evangelism hoping that more organizations will follow the path foreseen by my Internet Time Alliance colleagues, and move beyond just training to covering informal learning. For the annual eLearn Mag predictions, this year I wrote: I think we’ll see some important, but subtle, trends. Deeper uses of technology are going to surface: more data-driven interactions, complemented by both more structured content and more semantics.

How Much Does Informal Learning Actually Cost?

Dashe & Thomson

Current research indicates that 20% of learning is formal and 80% is informal, yet 80% of training budgets are spent on formal learning and only 20% on informal learning. Of that amount $30B is spent on formal training, and $180B is spent on informal and on-the-job training.

Evidence-Informed Practice

The Peformance Improvement

Some nonprofit organizations, in an effort to improve outcomes for their clients and to be more accountable for results, are applying an “evidence-informed practice” approach to their work. Both of these common ways of thinking are barriers to evidence-informed practice.

Just enough information to permit practice and no more

Clive on Learning

We were discussing the all-too-common tendency to over-teach and under-practise in formal workplace learning interventions.Here's how one of the participants in the meeting summarised how the principle should read: Provide just enough information to allow the learner to practise and no more I'm really taken with this. I was at a client meeting the other day at which we were agreeing principles that would act as a foundation to their l&d strategy.

Learning Faster through Electric Shock?

Something like this reminds me of the Matrix when Trinity needed to learn new information and it was downloaded into her brain. Or is the future of learning plugging in our brain to a library and downloading all the information we need?

The Storytelling Element of Instructional Games

Kapp Notes

Stories have been used for centuries to pass information from one person to another and to guide behavior and thinking. While not all games have a story narrative behind them, storytelling is an essential part of the gamificaiton of learning and instruction.

Feedback Essential for Video Games and Learning

Kapp Notes

It is designed to inform the learner in two important areas. Feedback immediately informs the learner if they did the right thing, the wrong thing or if it was somewhere in the middle. The second is to provide information to the leaner to help guide them toward learning the content.
