Performance Support

Clark Quinn

Great post by Jay Cross that uses the history of performance support to set up the need for what Jay calls Learnscapes. That’s how we use Google and corporate wikis and instant messenger. Learnscape architects have implemented miniature versions of the internet behind corporate firewalls that provide all of these things, from peer-rated FAQs to wizards, on-line help desks, and best practices repositories.

Strategies for Implementing Gamification in Your Training

Your Training Edge

Massive open online courses (MOOCs) and gamification hit the corporate training world at roughly the same time. MOOCs started to make their way into the mainstream in 2012, and while the idea of gamification has been around for more than a century , and the value of games in learning has been recognized for several decades, it is only recent advances in technology that have made both MOOCs and gamification viable training options.

PWLE Not PLE - Knowledge Work Not Separate from Learning

Tony Karrer

concepts and technologies (mashups, widgets, aggregation, OpenID, RSS, etc.) Flexibility and extensibility Web browser platform Aggregation/Mashups Ease of use Several thoughts jumped out at me: The concept of a Personal Learning Environment (PLE) exists, but actual PLEs only exist as theoretical combinations of skills, methods and tools. The concept of a Personal Learning Environment Framework gets it even farther from some actual system.

Learning with people, not technology

Jay Cross

This morning I revisited the delightful story of how people learn to do their jobs at New Seasons Market , a chain of nine natural food stores in Portland, Oregon. New Seasons exemplifies taking a non-training alternative to workplace learning. That New Seasons is a people-oriented business echoes in their approach to learning. New hires receive a brief orientation and are then let loose to learn by walking around and asking questions.

Informal Learning 2.0

Yesterday on video I heard myself stumbling to describe the April 21 session of Corporate Learning Trends & Innovation. I said our theme is improving performance with “natural/informal/web 2.0/connected/social learning. This new learning is strategy, not support. The focus is shifting from the workshop to the workplace, from courses to conversations, from classrooms to learning environments, and from events to on-going processes. Informal Learning 2.0

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

As I rewrite Working Smarter, Boosting Brainpower for Fun & Profit , I’m gathering up sound beliefs and best practices from a variety of disciplines to inject into corporate learnscapes. My search for innovation finds me mashing up concepts from corporate culture with those from other disciplines. If kids in a classroom splinter into several opposing groups, their learning experience is less coherent.

Top 10 eLearning Predictions for 2010

Tony Karrer

When I say that, keep in mind that 90% of what workplace learning is all about will be basically unchanged this year. But when I do these predictions, I focus on the stuff that’s part of the bigger trends and the potential that these trends have for impacting workplace learning professionals especially around the impact that technology will have. During 2010, this will actually have much more impact outside of learning solutions and particularly workplace learning solutions.

Innovation comes from mash-ups of ideas from parallel universes. I learn things at Gnomedex, reflect on them, and try them on for size in the world of corporate learning and development. I have just started here but already have half a dozen experiments I’d like to run behind corporate firewalls. learn your camera: shoot everyday, get feedback. I’ve spent the last 15 hours in the company of geeks. Not just any geeks.

Learning apps. Branon Learning Management System App Stores Bob Little Apps, Not Courses Inge de Waard Augmented reality moves towards augmented learning with easy tools: Wikitude , Layar , ARToolKit. Situated learning (learning within context in a community of practice) grows thanks to augmented mobile reality. Virtual classrooms and smart-boards are used in a more student-centered way (not putting all the attention to one person up-front=bad).
