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".

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.

Trending Sources

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.

eLearning Trends That Will Fizzle, Sizzle, or Simmer in 2014

Bottom-Line Performance

Is gamification going to go the way of Myspace and Foursquare? BUT – we are seeing that people use their phones for tons of stuff – in short chunks – and they love to use phones to find/locate information. Our industry is notorious for chasing after trends.

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

Learning with e's

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.

MyFace or SpaceBook. or MyFaceBo?

Learning with e's

Which is the best, MySpace or FaceBook? I tentatively gave that information only to have a list shoot back that had every name checked in the list. NightMonkey (who is apparently a cat sat at a desktop) closed down their FaceBook account immediately, but maintains a MySpace account to keep in touch with their students. Well, I shamelessly admit that I keep Bebo , MySpace and FaceBook accounts for similar reasons. Still the debate goes on.

Using social media for eLearning (a look at the top 6 social platforms)


A huge part of our social lives already happens online rather than in the “real world” And while individual social media networks might rise and fall (remember MySpace?), Social media have become an indispensable part of modern life.

Global digital tribe

Learning with e's

Membership of digital clans can be volatile, as has been demonstrated in the sharp rise and decline of once popular tribal online spaces such as Bebo or MySpace. Many of our digital tribal activities are performed on an informal basis. Charlotte, NC: Information Age.

The (Eventual) Downfall of MOOCs


Fast forward to today and we have corporations begging people to “like” them, ads on every page, our personal information being leveraged for advertisers, and parents everywhere asking: “why didn’t you like my status?”.

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.

LMSs that kick ass:

Janet Clarey

A: We have known since our inception that every user of an LMS is a SME of some kind and that capturing, sharing, cataloging, reusing and reporting on that information is the glue that keeps superior organizations together. The early incorporation of weblogs, forums, chat rooms and wikis into the LearnCenter platform was paramount in keeping pace with the informal way Americans are learning.

The new workplace

Jay Cross

Six years ago few people believed that informal learning made much of a difference. Today’s common wisdom is that most workplace learning is experiential, unplanned, social, and informal. Informal learning tops many training department agendas. The information explosion has hit.

21st Century L&D Skills

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.

Twitter as Social Learning: Seven Ways to Facilitate the Exchange.

Dashe & Thomson

Where Facebook and LinkedIn serve mainly as social dashboards for our personal and professional networks, respectively, I see Twitter as a customized information portal. Twitter is where these extraordinary few reside, so leverage the few to learn and to exchange ideas and 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.

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.

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".

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.
