The Big Question - What I Learned About Learning in 2009

Upside Learning

The Big Question posed on Learning Circuits this time,as always , is thought provoking –. Having said that, it’s quite evident that the convergence of high-speed networks, powerful and capable personal computing devices (mobile/cell phones) will lead to a point where the need for desktop or laptop personal computers ceases to exist.

Selling Social Media for Learning: ASTD Big Question

Kapp Notes

This month's ASTD Learning Circuit's Blog Big Question is "How do I communicate the value of social media as a learning tool to my organization?" Position Social Media Differently Than It's Intended Use For example, the Twitter question is "What are you doing?" The question then should be "What you are thinking?" Reposition the use of something like Twitter to be a productivity tool, not a social networking tool. ASTD Big Question Web 2.0

ASTD's Big Question for December: New Learning

Kapp Notes

The ASTD Big question this month is What did you learn about learning in 2007? Mostly about the power of the network and Web 2.0 Second, I learned first hand the exponential power of the social network of the web. Look forward to next month's question. __ Recommended Games and Gadgets Recommended Books Content GuideI learn so much all the time from students, clients and colleagues, it is hard to narrow it down to just one or two things, but I'll try.

The Right Place to Find Help: ASTD's Big Question

Kapp Notes

This month's ASTD Big Question on the Learning Circuit's Blog is about Social Networking and finding help and expertise if you have a question or a concern for which you need input and/or advice. The basic question is " If you need input from people, where's the best place to ask?" But, then the question breaks into sub-questions. The assumption seems to be that there is one "best" place for asking a question.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use.

The Big Question: Breaking down the organisational walls to learning

Clive on Learning

In the ASTD Learning Circuits blog this month, they comment on the fact that, in many organisations, learners are reaching outside of the organisation to enhance their learning experience, through social networking and other media. So, the Learning Circuits Big Question for June is: How do we break down organisational walls when it comes to learning? That's at least partly because America itself is big enough that it would take a lifetime to explore and understand.

The big question for December

Clive on Learning

Learning Circuit's big questions for December are: 1. Hopefully at the same time we'll also see a reduced emphasis on formal and packaged content, with an increased use of technology for collaboration, network building and the co-creation of content as an output of learning What will you remember most about 2006? For me, it will probably be my first complete year of blogging.

December Big Question - What did you learn about learning?

The Learning Circuits

We've somewhat lost our fearless Blogmeister, Dave Lee, so we've not been doing the Big Questions the past few months. The Big Question for December is: What did you learn about learning in 2007? To help you get started, you might want to look back at some discussions going on last year at this time with a similar kind of question: December 2006 : Past experiences. Ideally, you would also include the Big Question logo.

Network Skills

Tony Karrer

I personally believe that one of the areas where learning professionals need the most help is how communities and networks impact learning and building individual and facilitation skills around these: Knowing how to individually leverage Network Skills and Communities to help with work and learning tasks Community and Network Facilitation Skills to help others learn and work using networks and communities In my post Networks and Learning Communities , I looked a bit at this topic.

The Big Question: Leading the charge

Clive on Learning

In the Learning Circuits Blog , Tony Karrer poses a whole series of questions related to the role of learning and development professionals in promoting informal learning / social learning / learning 2.0 Perhaps start as a passive consumer of blogs, wikis, social networks and the like, but edge forward by being someone who comments, responds, edits and otherwise joins in.

Impact of informal learning: output learning #LCBQ

Challenge to Learn

The question of the month #LCBQ is: How do you assess whether your informal learning, social learning, continuous learning and performance support initiatives have the desired impact or if they achieve the desired results? So this is an excellent question. So in fact you can ask the same question for formal learning activities. This isn’t an easy question and there is no easy answer (or in any case not one answer).

The Big Question: What will workplace learning technology look like in 2015?

Clive on Learning

The May Big Question in the Learning Circuits Blog is What will workplace learning technology look like in 2015 ? Managers have started to question the money spent on traditional training, the time this absorbs, and to some extent the environmental impact. My first instinct was to pass on this one, because it seems only a few months since we made our predictions for 2010.

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

I was just reminded of the big question while cruising reader.google.com.my Our fearless uber-learning-blogger Tony Karrer points out Dave Lee's concern that there hasn't been much discussion about this month's question. I'm not sure I totally understand the question. It looks like some of us are answering the question by discussing how much training we give to management/leadership programs and, as a trainig department, how we support the middle manager layer.

December's BIG QUESTION!!! Part I

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

I've been planning my year in review post and just noticed THE BIG QUESTION. Podcasting, videocasting, Corporate YouTube, Tagging, folksonomies vs. taxonomies, social networking, are a few of the elements that make up the new ecosystem we called Learning2.0. Stay tuned for my response to Part II and III of THE BIG QUESTION What will you remember most about 2006? 2006 has been a GREAT year!

The Big Question: How do I spend my time?

Clive on Learning

June's Big Question on the Learning Circuits Blog asks a personal question: How much time do you spend and how do you find the time for reading blogs, twitter, social networks, etc.? On the other hand, in the context of a whole load of people responding to the question, some patterns might emerge that affect us all. Not such a big commitment. But, unlike many people, I don't commit much time to social networking.

Separately, Dave Lee ( The Learning Circuits Blog: Throwing a Big Community Net ) has provided a couple of interesting follow-up opportunities including keeping track of conversations across various posts that relate to the original post and a poll. One thing that appears to be different about this exercise than in a discussion group, half of the response posts to any question is a response of "Here's why you are asking the wrong question."

The big question: making a start in e-learning

Clive on Learning

In the Learning Circuits Blog, the big question for October is "I'm interested in a career in e-learning. There are informal ways of doing this, but I'd also recommend joining the main e-learning associations, i.e. eLearning Guild , wherever you are in the world, as well as the eLearning Network (workplace learning) or the Association for Learning Technology (education), if you're based in Europe.

Presenting in a networked age

Clark Quinn

The Learning Circuit’s Big Question this month has to do with the increasing prevalence of internet access during presentations. The context is that during presentations it’s certainly possible that your audience is multi-tasking, and the question is; what are the implications? I monitor it, and use it to ask questions.

The Big Question: How do I communicate the value of social media as a learning tool to my organisation?

Clive on Learning

This month’s Big Question in the ASTD Learning Circuits Blog is ‘How do I communicate the value of social media as a learning tool to my organisation?’ The will only have the means if employers help them to develop the metacognitive skills (the skills you need to learn independently) and provide the right tools (particularly the social networking software that is revolutionising the way we interact with each other online).

The Big Question: What is the impact of the economy on your organisation?

Clive on Learning

The Learning Circuits Blog Big Question for February is What is the impact of the economy on you and your organization? I have to follow my own advice (see Ten ways to thrive in a downturn ) by networking even more furiously and being proactive. Although I generally prefer the roundabout to the big dipper, I'm also aware that necessity is the mother of invention - recessions present many new opportunities and force decisions to be made that would otherwise be postponed.

Network Feedback

The Learning Circuits

This month's question comes out of part of the dialog that occur during the recent Work Literacy course. While discussing social networking for personal learning, the question came up around being able to reach out and get help from people or find expertise in the form of a person / conversation. Thus, for November we are exploring: Network Feedback In Getting Help , I discussed some aspects of the central question being raised.

The big question: What is the scope of our responsibility as learning professionals?

Clive on Learning

The Big Question for March on the Learning Circuits Blog is 'what is the scope of our responsibility as learning professionals?' I don't regard this question as just a topical response to the increased interest in informal learning - it's an issue that has been there as long as we have had learning professionals.

The big question: what did you learn about learning in 2007?

Clive on Learning

The Learning Circuits Blog has started up its monthly Big Question again and the question, perhaps appropriately as we see out what remains of the year, is 'what did you learn about learning in 2007?' You consult your network, you explore available resources, you may even document what you find for the benefit of others.

List to Learn, Learn to List

Kapp Notes

This month's ASTD Big Question is, again, a series of questions. Apparently one BIG question is not enough for the learning and development community. We aim to exceed expectations. If you have a to-learn list and are willing to share, and willing to share how you work with that list, that would likely be helpful information. I constantly have a "to-learn" list. Some of the items are necessary and some are "pie-in-the-sky."

Learning and Networking with a Blog (Deleted Scenes)

Tony Karrer

My article in Training + Development Magazine was just published - Learning and Networking with a Blog. To help with this, it might be worth looking at a discussion in October 2006 on the question - " Should All Learning Professionals Be Blogging ?” Another way to get connected is to contribute to ASTD's Learning Circuits Monthly Big Question. You must launch the reader and then go to page 20 to find the article.
