There were organizational accountabilities and performance expectations. It may not have been effective, but it was accessible to a large, geographically dispersed audience.

I Believe in the Erosion of Hierarchies

Tom Spiglanin

In the last several articles , we focused on aspects of the changing workplace and also discussed behaviors that those of us in the learning and development (L&D) role can adopt to help improve our effectiveness. The hierarchy is commonly represented with the org chart, a two-dimensional block diagram showing the authoritative wiring of the organization.

Learning and the Changing Workplace – Part 3

Tom Spiglanin

In this final installment of this Learning and the Changing Workplace series, I address what I see as the most compelling reason for L&D needs to change the way we work, augmenting or even replacing traditional methods with more responsive and effective approaches in the evolved work environment. The nature of how workers interact and network will change with adoption of collaborative cloud-based applications.

Passion for education

Learning with 'e's

We all need inspiration, and many would argue that we perform better as educators when we have passion. Effective pedagogy not only has impact, it's contagious. Often, in my own practice, if I witness a good method or technique, I adopt it myself.

Our immersion in media, he argues, provides us with a myriad of alternative role models we can adopt or adapt. Does wishing to be someone else mean that you actually adopt their identity? Again, this is a far from convincing argument, but even if it were true, would it really so much of a bad thing that we are able to engage in multiple online identity performance? Also, do we really find ourselves forced into performing multiple identities against our will?

Nicholas Carr is another critic of the Internet and its effect on learning. Others are more positive about the effects and influence of digital technology on learning. The web, they argue is capable not only of informing us of any knowledge or content we need, but can also change the way we learn, enabling us to search wider, perform personal research, and engage with the content in a rich social environment where peer learning occurs. Everything is just one click away.

Managers need to win the hearts and minds of teachers if they wish to see IWBs successfully adopted into everyday practice (Wheeler and Winter, 2005).

Five tools for global educators

Recently I have been considering the changing role of teachers who are adopting technology to extend the walls of the classroom. In effect, through the use of social media and telecommunication technologies, these teachers are becoming global educators. Webinar tools include Elluminate (now known as Blackboard Collaborate), WebEx and Adobe Connect all of which have similar screen topographies and perform similar functions, but all have an associated cost.
