Sausages and mash(up)

Learning with e's

For their project, one of the groups of bright young things has come up with an idea they have called Wiki ++. it is an extended open architecture in which several versions of a wiki page exist simultaneously, so there is potential for endless mash-up, ? I need to find out more about how this will develop, and at first glance, it appears to be an overcomplication of a simple idea.

Learning Space Mash-up: Toward a Collaborative Personal Learning Environment

Learning with e's

One of the papers I will be presenting in September is entitled: "Learning Space Mash-up: Toward a Collaborative Personal Learning Environment". Secondly, I will want to reinforce the idea that PLEs, which are developed by individuals rather than through institutes, can be optimised through mashups - combinations and aggregations of tools and services that suit the individuals approach to learning.

Incredibly Cool! Vision of Future of Application and eLearning Development

Tony Karrer

Now go visit my previous article: Authoring in eLearning 2.0 / Add-ins & Mash-ups. Last week I moderated an event on Web 2.0 where we had speakers from IBM, Google, Microsoft, Sony and others talking about what it really means (especially for corporations). One of the most interesting things was the Enterprise Mashup demonstration by Rod Smith at IBM. He basically showed how a business-user would be able to wire together an application.

These kinds of participation entail affiliation with the online platforms like Facebook, or games; the activities where participants are able to develop new kinds of expression through fan-fiction writing, zines, mash-ups, collaboration, where learners are able to work with one another to complete tasks or develop skills and knowledge, like when using gaming, Wikipedia and other activities and where users shape the flow or distribution of media via forms like blogging and podcasting [1].

15 essentials for successful learning

Jay Cross

While cleaning up my office this afternoon, I came up this list of essentials for effective informal learning I wrote a couple of years ago for the ASTD Handbook. Set high expectations, and people live up to them. Learning is for everyone, not just novices and up-and-comers. Innovation is born of mashing up concepts from different disciplines. The list appears in ASTD Handbook: The Definitive Reference for Training & Development , 2nd edition.

With the ability to easily create learning applications that seamlessly mash-up the best content, and with the tools available, it is no wonder that some innovative vendors have already seized on this new opportunity. This is an exciting development and one that can truly make an impact on the quality and flexibility to create individualized learning experiences. There are adoptions, and districts are standing up systems that enable individualized learning solutions.

Great post by Jay Cross that uses the history of performance support to set up the need for what Jay calls Learnscapes.

Why Your Organization Needs Collaborative Learning

NovoEd

The “lone wolf” figure is all very well for Westerns and Jason Bourne movies, but when it comes to learning and development, a classroom — whether physical or virtual — full of enthusiastic participants is always a better bet. By pooling individual contributions, teams can achieve their objectives faster and enable participants to develop new skills and expand their knowledge along the way.

Using Data from Online Learning to Fuel Association Growth

Association eLearning

According to CIO.com , “The new cornucopia of public and private data is providing a new opportunity to mash up multiple big data sets to gain new insights beyond what a single big data set allows. Debbie King of DSK Solutions developed an exercise to determine indirect and opportunity costs associated with wasting time on activities that do not add value to an association. Is this something that provides value but takes up more of your time than it should?

Content as a Service

Xyleme

For better or worse, the development of learning content has been a one-way push process. As instructional designers, we create our learning products, package them up with all the content and media, wish them well, and ship them off to the LMS’s – never to be seen again. And the possibilities for highly specialized apps for learning, performance support, and content mash-ups is nearly unlimited. Mash-ups and on-demand publishing.

You’ve Been Learning All Wrong or What I learned from “Make It Stick: the Science of Successful Learning”

Pract.us

Make a mash-up of practice. You might have to look it up. Just as spacing out recall adds challenge to study, mixing up different topics or “interleaving,” stresses the brain and improves learning results. So we’re developing a high-order “conceptual knowledge.”. In addition to these various delusions, we also hold common assumptions that have not held up under research. Make learning stick with challenging study techniques.

This is due to the social context in which they are growing up. They are growing up as more than passive consumers of media. For example, my daughter has set up a Finsta account. They are also growing up while the Internet of Things is changing how we live. So how do we learning and development leaders welcome this generation now reaching our companies? That is fine, why should learning and development be any less fun? Who are these people?

The debate about global warming still rages, but few of us would argue against the idea that things seem to be heating up, and it is affecting everyone’s behavior. ” Sometimes to their peril and sometimes to their benefit, animals are “packing up and moving,” as well as shifting the timing of seasonal events such as breeding, migration and coming out of hibernation to coincide with earlier springs and autumns.

Personal Learning Knowledge Work Environment

Tony Karrer

Personal Learning These would seem to be summed up pretty well by Graham Attwell in Questions and Answers on Peronal Learning Environments: Yes, I do have my own PLE, comprised of a 'mash up' of different desktop and web based applications I use for my everyday work and increasingly reliant on local and web based services. It isn't particularly efficient and it has some pretty big gaps at the moment - but I hope to develop it further over the next year.

Remix culture and education

Learning with 'e's

Sometimes several works are combined or 'mashed up' to create new versions. Vidding, modding, sampling and hacking are all techniques developed in the digital age to modify, remix and repurpose existing content. In my last blog post I illustrated a new model of digital literacies in the context of age of remix. Since then, several have asked me what I mean by remix culture, and how it applies to education.

Informal Learning 2.0

Jay Cross

Today’s learning is a mash-up of performance support, internal communications, collaboration, social software, real-time feeds, organization development, what’s left of knowledge management, collective intelligence, search, nurturing communities, and traditional learning. Top-down formal structures won’t be able to keep up with work-driven needs.

Battling the employee training time excuse

Zunos

According to industry expert Josh Bersin, employees spend one percent of their workweek on training and development. If your leadership isn't taking time for learning and development, then why would other employees? If you want training to be effective, you must start developing a culture that promotes active learning from everyone. If leaders see value in investing in personal development, it will naturally trickle down to those they oversee.
