Social Media for Knowledge Workers

Tony Karrer

tools to improve your performance as a knowledge worker. This was a major reason that I started down the path with Work Literacy. That said, I thought it would be worthwhile for me to collect a few of the resources that provide good starting points that can help Knowledge Workers improve their performance using Social Media. Last week I had a presentation around using Social Media and Web 2.0

Seven Things I Learned This Year

Tony Karrer

LMS and Learning Tracking Still Struggling While LMS solutions continue to get better, more powerful, more diverse, I continue to find myself searching for just the right solution for particular needs. I was also struggling for clients who needed very simple learning tracking but with some customizations. Over the past few years, I spend part of December going back through my blog to recap a bit of what some of the key things I’ve learned over the course of the year.

New Work and New Work Skills

Clark Quinn

really was all about new work skills - skills we should be learning. Actually, it's also about the fact that there's not really new work as much as there is new work skills. Work Skills Changing Most of us who used to use these things know somewhat know that they really aren't in use anymore. In presentations, I often will cite this as an example of the kinds of changes in work skills that have occurred and are constantly occurring.

Learned about Learning in 2009

Tony Karrer

It’s always fun at the end of the year to go back and take a look at what you’ve been working on, what you’ve learned during the year. In June 2008, Work Literacy Launched. I’m convinced that we are all struggling to have our Work Skills Keep Up. Each of these allowed me to fast forward my learning and share knowledge effectively. And it can turn into great things like: Discussion Forums for Knowledge Sharing at Capital City Bank. Work Event?

Using SharePoint

Tony Karrer

Using SharePoint before, during and after courses This typically takes the form of sharing best practices, code examples, templates, links; posting announcements; having discussions; showing calendar items; supporting student profiles; supporting student project work; sharing notes, documents; providing course content. But in discussions there were often distinctions based on what the work team or CoP expected. Some used it to track bugs.

Learning for the 21st Century

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Unprecedented changes in the role of the worker, the nature of business, the pace of innovation, the importance of intangibles, the explosion of information, and the shift from a manufacturing to a service economy have rendered traditional corporate learning obsolete. Learning is the process of figuring out how the world works. It’s a dog’s breakfast of acquiring skills, information, knowledge, savoir faire, and more. THE CHANGING NATURE OF WORK.

He also knows ‘what works’ in the world of strategic talent. Charles: I see these shifts in learning as being driven not only by re-thinking the process of learning and development and by emerging technologies, but also by fundamental changes in the world of work. Factors such as changing organisational structures and evolving work practices are important drivers. Charles: We now know that people learn more about their work informally than they do formally.

2008 in retrospect

Jay Cross

Next year, I intend to start making the world a better place, and that’s going to take more oomph, focus, and work with others. Knowledge workers have replaced factory workers. Shareholders owned the factories, but workers own their minds. Information spreading through network connections empowers workers to make decisions and take responsibility for them. Give workers the resources and challenge them to do what’s required.
