The first, the Staffroom is quite public, calling on high levels of communication and high profile, and involves the use of microblogging tools such as Twitter. It will fail if the user does not follow or is not followed by enough other subscribers to enable the benefits of the network effect. It is worth noting that only the first quadrant of this PLN model is actually performed synchronously, that is, in real time.

Teach less, learn more

Or perhaps the presence of the Twitter screens showing #pelc11 tweets live as they happened, or possibly the live streaming of some of the key sessions (219 people were watching Teachmeet from outside the conference at one point) served to create the connections people needed to be able to enjoy the event in a new dimension. I think this is quite profound, that in effect we as teachers can get in the way of a child's progress.

This past week there was an impromptu Twitter discussion about the “70:20:10” notion of learning in the workplace, where about 70 percent of workplace learning is experiential (basically doing the work), about 20 percent is learning from others, and just 10 percent is from training or other formal learning intervention. Others claim that L&D too often responds to performance needs with courses of one form or another.

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.

Three Questions Every Workplace Trainer Should Ask

Mindflash

By understanding how an employee spends his day, the educator can identify whether their performance is a result of being well-matched to their job, or whether they may requires further skills training. And lastly, asking this kind of question can help identify whether the learner has real interest in improving their performance. Tell me a little about an education program that you watched or attended that made a difference in your performance. Follow him on Twitter.

Let Employees Choose Their Own Training Materials

Mindflash

The employee has the ability to customize their learning — to assess specifically what they need to improve their performance — rather than be forced to participate in education that is defined by the organization. Playing a part in identifying and selecting education holds the employee accountable for assessing his performance challenges and owning the process to address and solve them. Follow him on Twitter.
