Cammy Beans Learning Visions: The Real World, SecondLife and FaceBook/MySpace

Learning Visions

Tuesday, July 10, 2007 The Real World, SecondLife and FaceBook/MySpace Over the past few weeks Ive conducted about 17 interviews with current college students and recent graduates. One woman told me that she used to blog in LiveJournal, but there was just way too much personal information that was getting shared with the universe, so she deleted her account. A couple of people also had MySpace accounts. MySpace is seen as being too "creepy".

Social Networking, Informal Learning, Twitter, & Gaming

Big Dog, Little Dog

We are all very familiar with social networking platforms such as MySpace, Flikr, YouTube, Twitter, Bebo and Facebook. Informal learning - the next big thing? Improved collective performance: Investing in Web 2.0 - Knowledge Board.

One degree of connection

Learning with e's

Technology, and in particular, popular social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace, Bebo and Orkut have made connections between people much easier, more immediate, and certainly a lot richer in terms of experience.

Noughties. but nice

If we time jumped from then to 2009, the way we now communicate, learn, search for information, share content and consume entertainment would be unrecognisable. Where else would most of us go though, for quick information.

The Rise of the Digitals

Your Training Edge

These people use the latest technology to gain access to the information on the internet at any time or place. Digitals are constantly surfing the internet in search of the latest information and applications. Sites like Fickr and MySpace are also crowded with Digitals.

She had not used a chat room, IM, Facebook, or MySpace before joining a site called OurPrayer.org. This is another liveblogged post from the TCC 2008 conference.

Using Content Distribution to Market E-Learning

LearnDash

Let’s say the website goes the way of MySpace. You gain a lot in convenience and audience reach, but you lose control of your product, your visitors, and your information. Will content distribution platforms help you amplify your program, or distract from your own site? Have you ever considered writing an article about your e-learning course to a content distribution platform like Medium? If so, you’re not alone.

The term “social learning” – along with “informal learning” – has been bandied about for a couple years. The concepts of social learning and informal learning are intertwined with social tools such as Facebook, blogs, microblogs (e.g.

All This Talk About Reading

These were the days before the interwebs, before twitter, YouTube, MySpace, and Facebook. I had to go to the library or Barnes and Noble to find information. All this talk about reading got me to thinking… It’s been a good month.

Shout Out: Abbey Stahl--All the Rage

Kapp Notes

However, one article caught my eye "MySpace, IM--why so addictive?" The article provides great information about what the upcoming gamer generation is going to demand in terms of learning. Here is some of the article: Yes, these terms --Instant Messanger and Myspace--may seem foreign to your parents, but to us teenagers they're essential to keep up with the lastest ins and outs. Nearly any Myspace or Instant Messenger user will tell you that they are addicted to it.

What Millennials Want from Member Education

Association eLearning

I learned some basic html coding when I was just 11 years old because I constantly wanted to update the backgrounds on my NeoPets and MySpace profiles. However, when it comes to member education there are certainly similarities in how we like to receive information and learn.

E-Learning challenges in vocational education

E-Learning Provocateur

Facebook, MySpace, YouTube, blogs, wikis and other social media have shifted the role of the learner from a mere recipient of content, to an active participant in the production of content. Yesterday I participated in an enterprise discussion panel at the eLearning08 conference in Sydney.

How millennials in leadership are shaking up L & D

Zunos

They browsed the web on Internet Explorer and were just beginning to fill out their MySpace profiles. Millennials have grown up in an environment where information moves fast, and their success depends on staying in the know at all times. Curating available information into useful workplace knowledge. Wading through all of that information is tough and time-consuming. These are the places where the information available just doesn't cut it.

Change Our Traditional Approach to Education

Kapp Notes

They continue to push consumer companies for more connectivity, more ways to create their own content and more access to information through instant messaging applications and voice activated internet search. Friends are made over digital networks and kids who have met one time keep in contact for years via updates to Facebook, MySpace or other social networking pages.

Turning the screws on Twitter

Learning with e's

Neil argues that tools such as Twitter do not replace good teaching, but should be used to enhance it: "Surely it’s about giving students the skills to make judgements on information, to realise what they can trust and to make best use of resources".

Web 2.0 Corporate Access

Clark Quinn

I somewhat understand why MySpace might get blocked (28%) but given how many people are using Facebook for business connections, blocking it at almost the same rate is a little bit of a surprise. This also shows the discrepancy in the perspective of getting information via a resource like Wikipedia vs. getting it from other people via something like LinkedIn. I’ve been working with Steve Wexler and the eLearningGuild on the eLearning 2.0 survey.

Why I left Linkedin

Spicy Learning

By “one”, Tom was referring to LinkedIn’s classification as a “social media” platform, lumped in with Facebook, Twitter, Yammer, MySpace, Bebo, Friendster and the rest. We’re seeing a growth in a movement championing the “right to be forgotten” in the third decade of the age of information.

Social Networks

Clark Quinn

Virginia Yonkers told us - I would like to know how to manage the information flows in social networks. I have been part of Ning groups before, but find it overwhelming, very quickly because there seems to be multiple inputs for information. Here in Brazil, people are more familiar with Orkut or Myspace. Conversation included LinkedIn, Ning, MySpace, Orkut, PLE, Plurk, Utterli, Twitter, Elgg, Xing, Edmoto, wow, there are a lot of these things to consider.

Ninety years on

Clive on Learning

This information went with them to the grave and deprived not only my wife and I but also our children and our children's children of some fantastic insights. But most excitingly, if an audience is what you crave, you can now find one on flickr, youtube and myspace.

In the wake of that innovation the concept of information and knowledge being held by the few and dispensed in structured learning events to the many collapsed. There’s lots of evidence to support the fact that informal and workplace learning should be learning professionals’ prime focus.
