Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use.

Does the Big Question Make Sense Anymore?

Tony Karrer

I’ve been facilitating the Big Question on ASTD’s Learning Circuit’s blog since sometime in 2006. Last month’s big question was Instruction in a Information Snacking Culture? The question was all about how we consume and work with information: People seem to be spending less time going through information in depth and less willing to spend time on information.

Moodle Journal

Moodle is certainly being used by staff and students now, I took a quick look at the logs beginning from the first teaching week and we have some 14000+ records, not bad considering we are still only running at 260 users in total.

Its Ok to upload your class documents but that’s not in itself going to exploit the potential of a VLE with respect to addressing the issues of widening participation and extended classrooms.

The Big Question: Breaking down the organisational walls to learning

Clive on Learning

So, the Learning Circuits Big Question for June is: How do we break down organisational walls when it comes to learning? In other cases, there's no motivation to look beyond the organisational walls, because the people in question spend such a large proportion of their time at work that they have forgotten there is another world out there. That's at least partly because America itself is big enough that it would take a lifetime to explore and understand. Big Question
