Learning Rebels and the ASTD (ATD) Guest Blog: Learning through Sharing

Learning Rebels

Sharing time with newby L&D people, helping contacts with building their networks and SoMe presence and as you all know, recently I was asked to conduct a webinar with Rick Blunt (@rblunt81 on twitter ) and the DC Chapter of ASTD on Social Media Tools for Learning. Anyway, the last couple of weeks have had me head down writing a two part blog post for ASTD.org. Reading your comments tells me I’m on the right track and I appreciate every one of those comments.

ASTD International Conference Day 1 Wrap-Up

eLearning 24-7

Welcome one and all to the wrap up of the ASTD international conference and expo. Please note that the text might be squished since I am writing from the WordPress app. You can track number of times people open it, use it and even add folks to it. Why hasn’t ASTD figured out how to do things right. Once again, ASTD dropped the ball. Apparently there must be a huge demand for scalping ASTD badges or hood winking ASTD for access into their show.

Excuse any strange text breaks – writing from the WordPress iOS app. Can add your own audio or use one of their audio tracks – which surprisingly were not bad, actually quite a few were good. Thursday: Recap day two of the ASTD TK13 show, including expo. – another blog post.


Design Day and the ASTD Big Question for July

Kapp Notes

I left a comment on Tony Karrer's blog about creating a "Design Day" so that everyone in the blogosphere adds a comment about the importance of instructional design as opposed to focusing on technology. Around the same time, the ASTD Learning Circuits Blog had the July "Big Question" which was "Choosing Tools" which is actually a series of questions: How does the eLearning design process need to change to accommodate such a wide variety of tools?

The LCB Big Question Reframed: Should More Learning Professionals Be Blogging?

Tony Karrer

Out of the original October 2006: Should All Learning Professionals Be Blogging? As Peter posted ( The Learning Circuits Blog: Community Net Worth ): Now that the first wave of bloggers and blog-readers have read the initial results both in the form of serious utterances, straw polls and comic reformulations (thanks, Tony for that refreshing exercise), whither go we? Including the suggestion - blog for a month (Karl Kapp). And where does blogging fit in?

Allison Rossett

ASTD’s 2011 Learning in the Palm of Your Hand report identified the same halting progress, accompanied by little action on mobile strategy or investment. While this mobile app is only a first try that lacks the the richness that comes from assessment and tracking, it is nothing to sneeze at. Blog posting mobile Mobile LearningA faint pulse today.
