Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use. You can never keep up with it all, but access to many experts who are also finding and sharing the lastest tech tools make it much less daunting. So, I browsed "Tools" by keyword on eLearningLearning.

This was the first time I presented on this topic and the first time I led a session using Saba’s Centra platform. The “younger” generation does not have a high level of use of collaborative knowledge creation tools (“2.0”) and don’t adopt radically different patterns of knowledge creation and sharing. Here are the slides from an online session I did yesterday on Multi-Generational Learning in the Workplace.
