Skills for Learning 2.0

Learning with 'e's

I have been thinking and writing about ' Learning 2.0 ' for some time now. This is the argument that there has been a paradigm shift in the way students learn - from 1.0 from passive to active, from individual to social and from consumer to producer. This shift seems to run parallel to the development of the web over the last decade, and resonates with many who observe 21st century, digitally mediated learning in all its forms.

Quotes and excerpts on the need for Learning 2.0 from the Best of T+D: 2007-2009

ID Reflections

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. Shaffer in How Computer Games Help Children Learn (quoted by Harold Jarche in T+D) Creativity is a conversation--a tension--between individuals working on individual problems, and the professional communities they belong to. In a flattened learning system, there are fewer experts and more fellow learners on paths that may cross.

Informal Learning 2.0

Jay Cross

Published in Chief Learning Officer, August 2009. Informal Learning 2.0. Corporate approaches to learning have to change, as well. Until the shift from industrial to network dominance, corporations could compensate for crummy learning by hiring experienced people and managing ingenious command-and-control structures. Organizations that don’t learn can’t keep up. It’s learn or die. Increasing customer loyalty though learning.

Informal Learning 2.0

Jay Cross

Yesterday on video I heard myself stumbling to describe the April 21 session of Corporate Learning Trends & Innovation.

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

An Autodidact is Social

Web Tools for Learners

Seems like a contradiction in terms, but autodidacts are social; we have to be. When I learn from the web, I access websites, support people, books, friends, and the wonderfully generous denizens of the web. Even autodidacts are, by necessity, social learners. It must be even more so for those who learn differently than our schools teach. So that’s my current learning struggle, which I will continue on with, after I get some work that I’m good at done.

Stop Hovering over Learners

Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning

It has been argued that too much hovering sometimes backfires, because kids learn their values backwards: they feel entitled to things that they must earn, they lack empathy where it is needed.

Beware of Social Learning Backlash

eLearning Weekly

I’m finding out that the old adage, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink&# has some major significance when it comes to introducing social learning (specifically, social learning tools) at an organization.

I, too, have found myself in the matrix trying to explain the difference between the above terms and, in addition, “social media.”

So what does this mean for workplace learning? design informal learning opportunities to meet the development needs of workers.
