Instead of coding, programmers built apps by mashing up shared packages of code. If a mashup produced a Frankenmonster, you threw it away and tried something else. To tell her friends about breaking up with her boyfriend, she references a song from Life of Brian, Always look on the bright side of life. In traditional higher ed, colleges are not a place to learn skills. As you build skills, how to you build social networks and relationships?

Keeping your head above water

Learning with e's

June is going to be an exceptionally busy month for me, and what a contrast it will be to last year, when I was forced to put my feet up after abominable (sorry, abdominal) surgery. This June, instead of putting my feet up, I'm going to be trying to keep my head above water. My first speaking engagement is at the Learning and Skills Group Conference at Olympia, in London.

Clear about the concept

Clark Quinn

While in general CBE inherently embodies meaningfulness in the nature of clear and needed skills, I don’t have a problem with this. One was casually mashing up a couple of essentially incommensurate ideas. I went to hear a talk the other day. It was about competency-based education (CBE) for organizations. Ostensibly. And, while I’m now affiliated with IBSTPI , it’s not like I’m a competency expert.

Workforce learning in 2019: Finding patterns in a Clouded Crystall Ball

Adobe Captivate

GenY have grown up with rich-media and have a significant difference in attitude from the Gen X. People will want to create and communicate and do this quickly and without “due process” Authoring tools will need to support mashups, but I suspect that tools themselves need to be created as a mash-up of tools. Each constituent tool in the final mash-up relate to a specific media (text, audio, video etc.) and addressed a specific skill level.

Digital Participation

Your Training Edge

These kinds of participation entail affiliation with the online platforms like Facebook, or games; the activities where participants are able to develop new kinds of expression through fan-fiction writing, zines, mash-ups, collaboration, where learners are able to work with one another to complete tasks or develop skills and knowledge, like when using gaming, Wikipedia and other activities and where users shape the flow or distribution of media via forms like blogging and podcasting [1].

The variation shows up between projects in the same organization and from team to team in the same project. By a complete product: releasing fully functioning software (In effect, this approach is a mash-up between agile as a development method and Waterfall as a release model.).

Why Your Organization Needs Collaborative Learning

NovoEd

By pooling individual contributions, teams can achieve their objectives faster and enable participants to develop new skills and expand their knowledge along the way. In best-use cases, it produces the critical capabilities and deep skills — leadership, innovation, collaboration, and design thinking — that make employees more adept at operating in a fast-paced, highly distributed global workforce.

The case for PKM

Clark Quinn

As context, I think meta-learning, learning to learn, is an important suite of skills to master. And you can’t take these skills for granted; they’re not necessarily optimal, and our education systems generally aren’t doing a good job of developing them. We’re often no so meta-reflective, yet that ends up being a critical component to improving.

KEVIN THORN – CRYSTAL BALLING WITH LEARNNOVATORS

Maslow, technology and learning

Learning with 'e's

I love a good mash-up. Actually, that's a little misleading - synthesis is a skill required by academics and scholars, whether technology is present or not. But a mash-up takes several ideas, formats or sources and places them together in a new form, to say something new. How much more could we say about the uses of technology when we place them up against a pre-digital age theory such as Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs model?

Performance Support

Clark Quinn

Great post by Jay Cross that uses the history of performance support to set up the need for what Jay calls Learnscapes. Jay tells us the early definition of Performance Support was: Performance Support empowered novice employees to get up to speed rapidly, to perform with a minimum of outside coaching or training, and to do the job as well or even better than experienced workers.

Digital Interaction Design to Tangible Interaction Design

Upside Learning

Tangible interaction designers must use traditional interaction design, engineering, computing, and robotics in a mash-up of skills and methods. Interaction design is almost always a synthesis of traditional methods and approaches from varied established disciplines. When I write about interaction, most people reading it view it in the context of software or some form of digital technology. Interaction” isn’t only about technology or software.

Content as a Service

Xyleme

As instructional designers, we create our learning products, package them up with all the content and media, wish them well, and ship them off to the LMS’s – never to be seen again. And the possibilities for highly specialized apps for learning, performance support, and content mash-ups is nearly unlimited. Mash-ups and on-demand publishing. For better or worse, the development of learning content has been a one-way push process.

Today’s corporate leaders recognise that the pace of technological change is creating a major skills problem for their organizations.

The skills challenges outlined by Deloitte are the modern outcome of a long-term trend.

The push toward content curation

Litmos

The skill sets of Learning & Development (L&D) are shifting. One of the skills is around search: writing good search phrases and being able to interpret the results. Another is to set up feeds that are triggered by particular topics of interest. An associated skill is to be able to interpret the value of the information. He also touts mashups , where two things are juxtaposed creating new meanings. For the latter, don’t assume these skills.

Informal Learning 2.0

Jay Cross

Today’s learning is a mash-up of performance support, internal communications, collaboration, social software, real-time feeds, organization development, what’s left of knowledge management, collective intelligence, search, nurturing communities, and traditional learning. The fundamentals of informal learning remain the same: People acquire the skills they use at work informally — talking, observing others, trial-and-error, and simply working with people in the know.

Computers, Learning Professionals, and their Roles in Curation

The Learning Circuits

Let's back up a second though; perhaps saying the definition of curator has expanded isn't accurate, as it implies expanding a single definition to include a broader group. Mashups : Merging two or more unrelated pieces of content to form a new message. For more advanced forms of curation like mashups and timelines, the need for human interpretation is even more critical. How will what we do look differently when we add curation to our skill sets?

Curation: A Core Competency for Learning Professionals

The Learning Circuits

However, in an age of ever-increasing data, being able to focus on what's important and what isn't is a required skill. So the first impact of learning and performance professionals is to assist workers with understanding and applying filtering skills; the second impact is of greater importance, and will become a core competency in the near future. A large percentage of learning and skill building is done informally.
