Learning Organizations, eLearning 2.0 and Edupunk

Clark Quinn

The questions she raises are: Is the edupunk ideology saying that the use of social media in commercial learning management systems is an assault on the very philosophy of learning 2.0? Adoption. If you have a population of learners who have already adopted tools (such as blogging and social bookmarking) for themselves that are different than the corporate tool (the LMS) do you ask them to move?

Web 2.0 - Consumer vs. Enterprise Use

Tony Karrer

acts in the consumer space as opposed to when it's adopted in the enterprise. And there certainly is an issue of adoption inside corporations. I've talked about adoption of web 2.0 tools in the enterprise before in this blog: Adoption of Web 2.0 Facilitating Adoption of Web 2.0 Adoption in the Enterprise - It's Personal The main points across these posts are: Adoption is first and foremost based on personal value (or more accurately perceived usefulness ).

Existing Adoption At the very start I asked the audience for examples of where they were currently using these tools as part of learning solutions. I discussed the fact that there was a common Adoption Pattern that went from personal adoption to work groups to organization. So while the session focused on organizational adoption, it likely was the case that you should look for targeted adoption opportunities.

Models for Learning Questions

I recommend adopting their tools and their security mechanisms. Yammer (internal twittering) is almost impossible to explain to someone who has no experience with any social networking (and probably not with anything more than email lists).

Social media - Right now I am in the midst of encouraging staff to use social media as a learning and teaching tool. Social media provides access to an immense amount of informal learning and direct access to experts outside the organization walls. My advice, be patient, keep encouraging its adoption, tout the positive results and give it time to catch on. Start selling the powers to be on the benefits of more open access to social media. eLearning Cyclops.
