Personalised learning

Learning with e's

Last night, during a panel discussion for the Plymouth Education Society, I made a statement that the current UK National Curriculum doesn't make a lot of room for personalised learning. I quoted Ken Robinson who has claimed that the current model of school is based on an industrialised or 'factory' model, where children are 'processed in batches' according to their year groups. It may also be premised on faulty assessment methods.

Why your Enterprise Social Network is your most valuable social learning platform

Jane Hart

This is the article I wrote for the January edition of Inside Learning Technologies magazine. Using an ESN brings a number of other significant advantages: It means that your thinking about “learning” is not constrained by a dedicated learning platform that perpetuates the traditional course approach. In other words using an ESN lets you think differently not just about what you do but how you measure the success of your learning initiatives.

This was a big thing for me, not least was how much effort it took to not only keep my diary free of meetings but also to keep the distractions and messages/calls/chat to a minimum so I could concentrate. had the rather huge title of ‘back to what normal?’

Will Richardson Interview of Clay Shirky

Experiencing eLearning

I was very fortunate this morning to see that Will Richardson had rescheduled his live interview with Clay Shirky on U-Stream. A couple of ideas stood out to me: We’re still figuring out the “rules&# for living in a networked society. Focus on assessment as the way to bring change in schools–what you assess is what you will teach. Most of the questions are from Will; questions from the chat should be indicated as such.

Three Practical Ideas for Using Twitter in E-Learning

Rapid eLearning

I’ll have to admit, I have mixed feelings about Twitter (and much of the other social media). On one hand, I really love to play around with all of the new social media tools and am excited about what’s going on and the potential for learning. On the other hand, much of their value is exaggerated. A lot of this social media stuff can be distracting and a waste of time. I like to focus on the more practical information that I can use. Build a Community.

Synching feelings

Learning with e's

A lot of time has been spent studying the impact of user generated content. Some of the best content is often provided by amateurs - people who are not necessarily specialists or qualified in their field of interest, but who are never the less passionate about their subject. This is also the ethos of sites such as Wikipedia, which rely heavily on 'the people' and 'wisdom of crowds' to create and maintain the content held in its pages.

PDR Design Model Supports Shift to Learning Design in the Work Context

Living in Learning

The concept of a learning shift represents a course correction by the USS Training Department. We are under full steam and headed into the shallows, and are in danger of running aground. We are trying to fight an insurgency with an army equipped with tactics and weaponry that do not fit the field of battle. Our tactics need to shift because we no longer serve the expanded scope of the knowledge worker’s environment. Expanded Scope of Discovery.

Through the Workscape Looking Glass

Jay Cross

It’s the biggest frame of the big picture. I don’t use the word learn with executives, who inevitably think back to the awfulness of school and close their ears. The Workscape is a systems-eye view of the workplace. In the same vein, I talk about Working Smarter instead of informal learning, social learning, and so forth. The problem is that the learning processes are haphazard, often a paving of the cow paths. Scope of the habitat.

Product Review: Plateau TMS (Talent Management System)

eLearning 24-7

I’ll be the first to admit, that I was not a big fan of the previous versions of the Plateau system. Plateau LMS is a Talent Management System, made up of four modules. After logging into the system a pop up window appears with four option, under the title “How to Get the Most out of the Plateau TMS. On the top of the screen, four labels are visible (you can change the label names, remove if you so choose, etc.). Thus lots of options.

Decisions, decisions. Business decisions.

Jay Cross

Jay Cross examines decision making on learning at work, and gives the lie to some myths about the use of business metrics. To “earn a seat at the table” where the business managers sit, you must: Speak the language of business. Behave like an officer of the corporation. It is equally vital to understand that different officers of your corporation will approach decisions about learning in very different ways depending on their circumstances. THE ENVIRONMENT OF BUSINESS.
