Talented Learning

So why should we celebrate technologies that enable social learning experiences? Maybe the answer lies in the beauty of a simple human truth: “Everyone you will ever meet knows something you don’t.” After a decade of affordable high-speed internet access, smartphones, mobile apps and social networks, it’s easy to take our digital connections for granted.

I spent the greater part of the weekend mulling over the practice of working out loud, what makes some folks adopt the habit with ease while others struggle, and what could be some of the possible enabling factors that support working out loud.

Value of Investment (VOI) vs. Return on Investment

Kapp Notes

Perhaps the constant effort to find the ROI of higher education or even training programs is mis-placed, should we be asking ourselves if an alternative exists?
