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.

January's Big Question at the Learning Circuits blog asks for our 2010 predictions.

This will include better search functions, a mobile app that actually works (yes, I went there), and a TweetChat style app (increasing its ability to function as a social learning tool).

Howdy and October's Big Question

The Learning Circuits

Driven as I was by this view of the future, it perhaps should come as no great surprise that my area of interest resides firmly in Social Learning Games - a whole buzzphrase, let alone buzzword. We've been researching, experimenting and implementing solutions that embrace both social and game-like behaviour for the last couple of years and we've seen some stunning results. it's time for the Big 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.

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.

Learning Circuit's Big Question this month is "How do I communicate the value of social media as a learning tool to my organization?"

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.

My response here is not so much an answer to this question, but rather, further musings on this endless topic that Ive been rambling on about of late. The question (particularly in the realm of the medical example) has to do with scope. Perhaps it is a question of scope for IDs?

The Big Question: Keeping up

Clive on Learning

The April Big Question in the Learning Circuits Blog is simply ‘how do we keep up?’ Will we be forced to chase hot tools and social platforms to stay competitive? At one level this question can be answered very simply, because keeping up has never been easier. Perhaps the more important question, then, is ‘do I really need to?’ It responds to this plea from a reader: Isn't this an ever-expanding universe of tech goodies?

The Big Question: how to assess informal learning

Clive on Learning

The Big Question on the ASTD Learning Circuits Blog is long enough to fill a post all by itself: How do you assess whether your informal learning, social learning, continuous learning, performance support initiatives have the desired impact or achieve the desired results?

The Big Question: How to assess learning initiatives…

Jay Cross

How do you assess whether your informal learning, social learning, continuous learning, and performance support initiatives have the desired impact or achieve the desired results? Why single out informal, social, and continuous learning? Furthermore, asking open-ended questions yields a lot more meaningful information than check-boxes and rating scales.

The big question: predictions for 2010

Clive on Learning

The Big Question for January in the Learning Circuits Blog is, rather predictably, what are your predictions for 2010? In 2009 I predicted : Most of the cool stuff (informal learning, social media, games and sims, mobile learning) will have to stay on the back burner, because management will simply not be interested in experimenting. There will be enough exceptions to keep those already active in these fields going, but no big shift in corporate learning practice.

Big Question for June - Where are the Examples of eLearning?

The Learning Circuits

So, this month I wanted to ask a slightly different kind of question that hopefully can produce something of value. The Big Question is.

One of the things that has always been somewhat surprising to me is that there seem to be relatively few examples of different kinds of eLearning available out there.

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?

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 ?

They are not bothered about social media, games and sims or iPads, but they are interested in the efficient use of resources.

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.
