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 from passive to active, from individual to social and from consumer to producer. 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. informal learning digital mnedia

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

Skills or literacies?

Learning with 'e's

Some of these divides are socio-economic, others are technical based on geographical location, still others are about willingness to engage, or the skill to be able to use tools effectively. Literacies rach beyond skills. I also mapped out some of the skills for Learning 2.0 , based on the work of Mark Federman. Skills and literacies are often used interchangeably, and this is not reprehensible. How do visitors learn and understand these conventions?

New Skills for Learning Professionals

I have pasted the question here: "In a Learning 2.0 world, where learning and performance solutions take on a wider variety of forms and where churn happens at a much more rapid pace, what new skills and knowledge are required for learning professionals?"

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. A good example is learning to cook!

In Social Learning Measurement , I discussed some different ways that we could measure social learning, but I think the question that is raised here is a question that needs to be asked prior to asking about measurement.

From Social Networking to Performance Widgets

Vignettes Learning

Gary VanAntwerp called my attention to this New York Times article At Social Site, Only the Businesslike Need Apply. Microsoft, long covetous of rapidly growing social networking properties, is internally testing a service called TownSquare that allows employees of a company to follow one another's activities on the corporate network. I consider these tools "learning and performance widgets".

The discussions are very helpful in formulating my thoughts on the issues of social learning tools, technologies and impacts on performance.

Stop Hovering over Learners

Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning

It has been argued that too much hovering sometimes backfires, because kids learn their values backwards: they feel entitled to things that they must earn, they lack empathy where it is needed.

Fish are the last to recognise water = informal learning?

Sticky Learning

I just twittered a thought - 'The benefit of Informal learning is that fish are the last to recognise water' - and then I started thinking. This is the real essence of informal learning. People become so engrossed in what they are doing that they don't see that they are learning - until they have learnt (if this makes sense?) So what does this mean for workplace learning? design informal learning opportunities to meet the development needs of workers.
