Social Bookmarking: Your Favorites Really Want to be Free

Mike Taylor

You wanted to access a bookmark on your work computer from home (Or vice versa). You couldn’t find a bookmark you know you saved because there are too many or you didn’t remember which folder you put it in. Social bookmarking can solve all of those problems and bring you additional benefits you probably haven’t even thought of. Your first question may be, “What the heck is social bookmarking?”. What is Social Bookmarking?

10 Reasons Why You Should Pay For Stock Photos

The eLearning Coach

Stock photos and illustrations won’t solve all your graphic needs but there are a lot of uses for them in online learning.

You can find a long list of both types on this Resource page— Stock Photo and Illustration Sites. You can find photos based on a concept, emotion or theme. Share this on del.icio.us.

Social Learning Has Its Place…And Informal Learning Does Too.

Dashe & Thomson

Two weeks ago Jane Hart wrote an article titled, Social Learning: to be or not to be? , in which Jane expresses her dislike of the term Social Learning (big S, big L). Jane claims that “Social Learning has come to refer exclusively to the use of social media in top-down, formal learning.” She also states that “social learning (small S, small L) happens continuously – freely and openly – in everything we do – in work, learn and study.”. We’re not always social.

Web 2.0 Learning

Tony Karrer

I've read a bit from ( here , here , and here ) about Jet Blue's use of web 2.0 / social media tools to communicate between their staff of learning professionals. The Awareness platform includes tools such as blogs, wikis and social bookmarking / tagging. This allows faculty to get to know each other socially in order to be more effective sharing and working together later.

Social Learning Examples

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

At DevLearn, many people lamented the difficulty of explaining the benefits of social media to their managers and peers. Jane mined the submissions of her delightful tools database and came up with 100+ ways to use social media for learning. Next, Jane details using social media for different types of learning. PDL – Personal Directed Learning – how individuals can use social media for their own (self-directed) personal or professional learning.

Introducting social media in organisations to improve the learning function is more difficult than you may think.

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

For some time now, I have an evaluation report of an organization that has experience with the introduction of social media (like wikis and blog) in the organization since 2009. The aim of the project was that increased use of social media within the organization would support the development of a global network: information would be better available in one central place (through wikis) and transparency about what is going on within the organisation would be enhanced.

Peeragogy

Jay Cross

Show me what others are interested in, as with social bookmarks like Diigo and Delicious. Make it easy to share photos and video, as on Flickr and YouTube. Profile should contain photo, position, location, email address, expertise (tagged so it’s searchable). link to your blog and bookmarks, people in your network, links to documents you frequently share, members of your network.

Now I’m overloaded with blogs, news sites, social networks and all kinds of email. If it were up to Mark Zuckerberg, we’d use our social networks to identify the videos, news stories and websites we want to spend our time on. If you ask Diigo , social bookmarking is the future.

Realistic Graphics and Learning: What’s most effective?

The eLearning Coach

Before you just place any old photo into an online course or informational web site, it’s a good idea to think about whether a realistic graphic is required. In the image below, the photo on the left has the greatest fidelity. Share this on del.icio.us. And if so, how much realism will be most effective? By realism, I mean how well a graphic appears to be a successful copy of its referent. A common assumption is that more realism corresponds to greater comprehension.

Social Network Operating System

Tony Karrer

Their comments around Social Operating Systems is interesting: The issue, and what social operating systems will resolve, is that today's tools do not recognize the "social graph"-the network of relationships a person has, independent of any given networking system or address book; the people one actually knows, is related to, or works with. Social networking sits on top of this and provides interfaces that allow us to interact.
