The ripple effect

Learning with 'e's

Anyone who is interested in the social media phenomenon would be very interested to read this from Abday Adhikari, writing in the Guardian : Every time we publish information on the internet, we are effectively starting a conversation, because people can respond or react to it. We are susceptible to the ripple effect, but direction changes can be made if the network requires them. We are essentially performing our ideas to a vast and unseen audience.

Learning Visions

Monday, June 18, 2007 Visual and Auditory Multi-Tasking From the Eide Neurolearning Blog: Voluntary Control of Attention - Visual and Auditory Multi-Tasking There is a yin and yang effect between visual and auditory attention. Mixed visual-auditory stimuli have an underadditive effect, so that if you have to do both at the same time, total brain activation goes down. Maybe the "underadditive effect" occurs when a multimedia presentation does all the thinking for you.

ATD Learning Technologies

Some LMSs offer advanced features that support performance management and social learning opportunities. Free webinar are Section 508 and WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines). Common with higher education institutions, a MOOC has an instructor, includes beginning and end dates over a series of weeks, and all participants start together and go through the learning experience together. MOOCs are typically free and often do not award any college credits.

I Believe in the Value of Sharing

Tom Spiglanin

I’m not talking about the monetary value of a social share (which business people are keen on doing ), but rather the less tangible value that comes from sharing knowledge, making an individual more productive, effective, and efficient. In other words, the value that is manifest in the form of improved personal performance in the workplace.

13 Tips for Recording Your iPhone, iPad, or iPod

If the content you’re recording has its own audio—like the sound effects in a game—you will want to unmute your device so it is captured. If you’re recording a game or app that has both background music and sound effects you should turn off music within the game settings. Instead of recording the music in real-time, you can record the sound effects and import the music later into your video editor as a separate track. Free up resources.

I attempt to summarize here, but feel free to go back to the original post and read all the comments: Clive Shepherd hates when learning objectives are the first thing you see. He suggests a list of potential outcomes with check boxes , effectively allowing the learner to create his or her own objectives.

Learning and the Changing Workplace – Part 3

When an organization’s data, information, platforms, and services are housed in the cloud and outside the corporate firewall, employees have more facile access to their information and will be more free to work at times and places of their choosing. Illustration of both the hierarchical workplace network and the public network from the perspective of a single connected worker, who is effectively a node on both networks.

Some of the best learning experiences I ever created were those in which we had people perform their real-life, everyday work in a high-support environment. What could be more effective than that?

Our digital future 11: AI enhanced course design

Learning with 'e's

However, replacing some aspects of what teachers do is both effective and inevitable. "AI Where it is implemented, AI will rapidly transform the design of courses, providing educators with vast amounts of new insight into what students do, how they study and what is most effective. This frees up course developers and administrators to be more strategic and plan their portfolio roadmaps in close collaboration with business and community partners."

The games we play

Learning with 'e's

For a start, there are an impressive array of transferrable skills to be acquired, especially if the games played are designed effectively. Many scholars have researched the effects of games on learning, but perhaps one of the most prolific and profound games theorists is James Paul Gee. Gamers are free to take risks in spaces where 'real world' consequences are negated. Next time, they improve their performance and avoid the same errors.

In smaller organizations, where fewer people are responsible for all aspects of the training program, including budgeting, Excel can help you track down training-related expenses, course effectiveness (e.g. by tracking grades vs other job performance metrics), and even organize time schedules (for instructor shifts, ILT courses, etc.). Flickr’s Creative Commons image search is a good place to look for such pictures, as is Wikimedia Commons and archive.org.

Design for life

It can also be present in the design of the objects you use to perform the skill. How it can be applied in education As Norman suggests, when information to perform a task is present within the design of an object, the need to learn it is reduced. The payoff for all the practice, says Norman, is not only increased typing speed and accuracy, but also a reduction in mental effort, freeing up the mind to process other things. This is number 30 in my series on learning theories.

How complex is learning?

Learning with 'e's

The common view from this camp is that computers and other technologies either distract from the real purpose of education, cause undesirable changes to the structure of our brains, or undermine knowledge and learning by trivializing it. For example, is online learning, especially free and open offerings from MOOCs , a threat to contemporary education? Teachers perform roles that even the most powerful computers could never replicate. Learning is highly complex.

The drama of Facebook

Learning with 'e's

One social anthropologist in particular might have had a great deal to say about the Facebook effect. It is a kind of ''performance'' where we conceal unpleasant or undesirable aspects of our personae, whilst emphasising desirable and more attractive attributes to our ''audience'' of others. Never the less, they are performing a role, and are unwittingly engaging with an audience of others.

The big switch

Learning with 'e's

If you subscribe to a kind of pedagogy where you believe that facilitating learning is more effective than direct instruction, you will probably recognise the potential. The list goes on: Faceoff, All of Me, 13 Going On 30, The Hot Chick - all deal with the same issue of switching roles/bodies, and having to perform in very unfamiliar territory. Most teachers by now will be aware of the concept of the flipped classroom.

Teach less, learn more

Learning with e's

Was it perhaps that Day 1 was a free day, to which anyone could come, to pitch in, watch the robot show, take part in the open workshops, and generally share their ideas in a very friendly and open environment? I think this is quite profound, that in effect we as teachers can get in the way of a child's progress. We have a wealth of exciting things, but if we don't try them and use them effectively, then they go to waste.

Could AI really spell disaster?

Learning with 'e's

Usually, technology performs very well, and we hardly notice it is there, making our lives easier, giving us more time to do other things while it gets on with the mundane stuff that used to be so tedious. He argues that computers could effectively put an end to mankind. Secondly, computers blindly follow code, and have no free will to decide not to follow it (unless they are programmed to do so - which thereby defeats the notion of free will). Could AI spell disaster?

Where is the road map?

Some go all the way through secondary school, still unable to effectively express themselves in writing. He performs poorly again, doesn't want to do any homework or put any effort in, and struggles to catch up. His performance drops further and the school and parents react negatively again - it's affecting the school's reputation and may even influence their league table position if the child's performance is reflected in poor exam grades. Warning - this is a rant.
