Learning 2.0 Strategy

Clark Quinn

Over the past two years, I've worked with start-ups and corporations around the world who are grappling a bit with the impact of Web 2.0 on learning. One of the more interesting aspects of this is that I've really changed and refined what I advise both audiences in terms of their learning 2.0 Seven Key Aspects of Learning 2.0 I initially attacked eLearning 2.0 and Learning 2.0 You need to be prepared to apply learning 2.0

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.

Digital Learning 2.0: Entering the age of participatory mobile, micro-learning


EDUCATION and learning have started to undergo its own digital disruption with the advent of MOOCs (massive open online course), almost eight years ago. Digital Learning 1.0 (the the age of the MOOCs) has really started to democratize learning through digital access to content that was traditionally limited to face-to-face. What is Digital Learning 2.0? There are three major trends that I believe should define Digital Learning 2.0.

Informal Learning 2.0

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

Gossip, Collaboration, and Performance in Distributed Teams

Skilful Minds

Most managers have heard of the watercooler effect without ever having the meaning of the concept sink in to their understanding of how it relates to performance and collaboration. A couple of studies released this summer dealing with performance and collaboration in teams merit consideration. Not so much for what they specifically say about performance and collaboration as much as what they imply about the promise of social media in the relationship. elearning 2.0

New offerings provide a gateway to Learning 2.0

Clive on Learning

Although the use of Web 2.0 technologies for learning is on the up (see Learning 2.0 - an update from the eLearning Guild ), it's also true to say that most employers don't know which way to start (see How are employers responding to Gen Y and Web 2.0? ).

“Brain Freeze: Does your eLearning System Cause Learning Paralysis?”

Vignettes Learning

However, the influx of information to an individual’s brain may prove to be debilitating to one’s decision making process or may result to learning paralysis for learners. The Zombie Tech Effect is my description of behavioral manifestations when we suffer from information overload that disables us from making quality decisions or results to learning paralysis.) In the training and learning practice we have become accustomed to the concept of not overloading our learners.

Vague Stories Help Learners to Discover

Vignettes Learning

Synthesis: Uncovering parallel tracks is essential in contextual learning – where the need is to help learners find applications of an idea in a story or feedback. That’s because domain-specific verbs – actions which we only perform in particular contexts – inhibit analogical reasoning, making us less likely to discover useful comparisons. In some instances, Clement found that the simple act of rewriting the problem led to impressive improvements in the performance of her subjects.

Informal/Social Learning - Concertina Style

Sticky Learning

In recent times I've seen and heard much discussion around informal and social learning. For example, is informal learning necessarily social in nature? Has the rise of new technologies altered the traditional view of social learning? How can we harness new technologies to foster a culture of learning within our business? Informal learning is learner driven and takes place when and how the learner decides. Social Learning occurs in a sense through osmosis.

Work Literacy of Social Learning Implementors

Vignettes Learning

The discussions are very helpful in formulating my thoughts on the issues of social learning tools, technologies and impacts on performance. The areas I am often asked is: "How do we use social learning and networking to improve performance at work?" What is the role of the leader, trainer and manager in implementing the social learning process? Social learning is focused on interactions of users.

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.
