Informal Learning Flow

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Professional learning is increasingly driven by demand, not supply. You decide what you need or want to learn and you go get it when you feel like it. Since you chose your topic rather than being told, you’re more likely to retain information you find. In the realm of informal learning, I learn from David Weinberger, George Siemens, Nancy White, Ross Dawson, Mark Oehlert, Marcia Conner, and dozens of others. Need more information?

Jay Cross

While I write a couple of public-facing blogs, Internet Time and the Informal Learning Blog , I spend more time participating in group discussions, writing comments, making online presentations, adding descriptions on sites like Flickr, posting to my wiki , and so forth. Services like FriendFeed , Tumbler , and Posterous are essentially personal aggregators. Everything shows up on Steve’s Friendfeed , including comments and discussion. To fork or not to fork?

Re-orientation

Jay Cross

Now, the torrent of information generated by the ever increasing stream of new developments has rendered this impossible. It pleases me to think of all of the passing information, entertainment, notifications, tweets, blogs, magazines, newspapers, and so on as a never-ending stream. My home page links to my public-facing material: blogs, videos, Flickr, SlideShare, popular articles, several communities, free chapters from Informal Learning, and so on. Feeling lost?
