Upside Learning

The Big Question posed on Learning Circuits this time,as always , is thought provoking –. What did you learn about Learning in 2009? I think my learning for 2009 was focused around three primary areas; this obviously derives from my focus on innovation in elearning and is biased, but here goes. We learned that there isn’t one single workable solution for mobile technologies. This year I’ve spent a fair bit of time learning about mobile technology.

eLearning Cyclops

As I am confident we will see informal learning become more prevalent in the corporate environment, companies must also be cautious when jumping into the social media and informal learning stampede.
