Learnnovators

While the title of the post specifies MOOCs, the skills and mindsets I have explored in the post are, IMHO, required by all to survive and thrive in the digital and connected world. And participating in MOOCs could well be one of the ways to inculcate and hone the skills.

Using Social Media to Improve Workplace Learning

Janet Clarey

I had uploaded my slides an hour early and took care of all the necessary details – shut off cell phone and house phone, banished children from my immediate area, let the dog out, shut the windows, and…special bonus this week…asked my contractor not to run the power saw or pound sheet rock from 1-2 pm. I forgot to tell him the part about me needing electricity and, of course, at 12:55 I lost power. Most of us reported moderate usage social media.

Taking Stock and Making Choices: Working from home and other such stuff

ID Reflections

I have come back to blogging after a hiatus of almost 5 months. I didn’t realise how deeply this constant tussle and tug of war have been affecting me at a sub-conscious level till I had to sit down and weigh some of the choices. We just need to bring back the human spirit into all of the interactions we keep getting involved with. To strike a work-life balance, work from home as much as possible (most of the time). Are you a knowledge worker working from home?

Excerpts from the Best of T+D | 2007 - 2009 Harold Jarche in Skills 2.0 : As knowledge workers, we are like actors--only as good as our last performance. Professionals are anyone who does work that cannot be standardized easily and who continuously welcomes challenges at the cutting edge of his or her expertise.

Class is over; now what? Informal learning in the workplace

Interesting statistics sort of related to learning

Bottom-Line Performance

For years, I abided by the rule that users (aka learners in my setting) liked reading text that was formatted into lines of about 4 inches in length. Turns out a really long line length of 10 inches may be better than the 4 inches I thought was best. People’s eyes have to switch back to the next line less often if the lenght is longer, which decreases the number of momentary losses of concentration as their eyes go from the end of one line to the start of the next.

Informal Learning - Harold Tells Us Where To Put It - Now What

His post is the kind of reasoned thinking that helps make sense of different approaches. And realistically, we are beginning to see all of these be parts of the solution mix. And realistically, this is part of the challenge today, the broadening to look at a broader solution mix.
