Skills for Learning 2.0

Learning with 'e's

I have been thinking and writing about ' Learning 2.0 ' for some time now. This is the argument that there has been a paradigm shift in the way students learn - from 1.0 This shift seems to run parallel to the development of the web over the last decade, and resonates with many who observe 21st century, digitally mediated learning in all its forms. One of the most valuable assets a 21st Century learner has is their personal learning network (PLN).

Informal Learning 2.0

Jay Cross

Published in Chief Learning Officer, August 2009. Informal Learning 2.0. Corporate approaches to learning have to change, as well. Until the shift from industrial to network dominance, corporations could compensate for crummy learning by hiring experienced people and managing ingenious command-and-control structures. Organizations that don’t learn can’t keep up. It’s learn or die. Increasing customer loyalty though learning.

Informal Learning 2.0

Jay Cross

Yesterday on video I heard myself stumbling to describe the April 21 session of Corporate Learning Trends & Innovation. I said our theme is improving performance with “natural/informal/web 2.0/connected/social learning. This new learning is strategy, not support. The focus is shifting from the workshop to the workplace, from courses to conversations, from classrooms to learning environments, and from events to on-going processes. Informal Learning 2.0

It's strange how the mind works, I saw the title and I thought "mmm, that's how to get traction for informal learning in the workplace". So, to informal learning! I've followed many discussions on blogs, webinars and twitter asking to promote a greater use of informal learning in workplaces. This however runs the risk of removing the 'in' from informal, leaving us with just another type of formal learning. Remember, this is still informal learning.

Learning Think 2.0

Living in Learning

Think back to the emergence of e-learning. Predictions began to surface as far back as 2001, when Jonathon Levy, then at Harvard Business School Publications suggested that “within five to seven years up to 85% of learning would take place within the context of the job.” We are faced with a mandate to shift our paradigm to move learning into the work context – into our knowledge worker’s moment of learning need.
