The Big Question: Time Spent

Upside Learning

The Big Question posed on Learning Circuits this time is thought provoking - Where is your time spent? Games now have online social components, so it’s no longer an isolated experience. These days, I coordinate Warcraft raids with a hundred or so clan members, go on quests, and create my own levels/maps for others to play - all part of the social game experience. I spend between 3-5 hours on new things, reading blogs, blogging, twitter, social networks.

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.

ASTD's Big Question for December 2008: New Learning

Kapp Notes

The ASTD Big question this month is What did you learn about learning in 2008? Mostly about finding a good "model" for mobile learning course design, how others tend to view immersive learning environments and how Social Media is taking off in the least likely places. The third big learning was that organizations who seemed the least open, most secretive and most regulated jumped into Social Media with both feet while other industries are still floundering.

So, the Learning Circuits Big Question for June is: How do we break down organisational walls when it comes to learning?

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?’ Well one way to approach this issue is to step back from the technology and ask yourself whether bottom-up learning in general (which has always happened, but which social media facilitates) is appropriate for the target population?

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.

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?

NuggetHead

by Kevin on June 7th, 2010 The Big Question at the Learning Circuit’s Blog for June is “What Tools Should We Learn?” Social Networking/Bookmarking This is not so much a tool as it is a cultural shift in how we communicate and share.
