Micro-Learning: Its Role in Formal, Informal and Incidental Learning

ID Reflections

Wikipedia With the rise of social and informal learning, and ubiquitous mobile devices (tablets, phablets, smartphones and everything in between), micro-learning as a concept and practice has taken off. Thus, micro-learning can play a crucial role in both formally designed performance support as well as in informal learning, with the latter focusing on user-generated content. What is micro-learning? When and where does it work well? What characteristics define micro-learning?

UnGoogleable questions again

Learning with e's

There were several responses, many of which were searching and considered about the role of teachers, the process by which we come to know and the function of technology in education. Just like Wikipedia, we can use the unGoogleable question to create a launching pad into more serious enquiry.

The grassroots of learning

Here’s a common scenario: I “quickly” look up something on Wikipedia, and hours later I have 47 tabs open as I delve into tangential aspects of the topic. In this context, I think the role of the instructor needs much more consideration.

Are you playing the role of the Subject Matter Expert instead of the Instructional Designer?

Janet Clarey

See what the role of L & D is. The wiki was built the same way Wikipedia is. I had a conversation by email with someone I really care about that probably came off a bit bitchy, a bit holier-than-thou…it you can have just “a bit&# of either of those traits.

The social impact of disruptive technology

Learning with e's

Just take Wikipedia: Technically it is a collaborative work space for creating content. There are around 7.000 authors for the German Wikipedia edition. The basic idea behind Wikipedia is that everybody can be an editor and a commentator.

What’s especially useful is their categorization of these elements which, together with several pointers, provide a kind of framework to help define the role of CLOs in the coming years. As per Wikipedia, meta-learning means learning about one’s own learning. So that doesn’t really change the CLO’s role itself; it just changes some of the tasks they’ll need to carry out and some of the tools they may need to employ to achieve learning goals.

Insight: Learner journeys need to become seamless

Clive on Learning

I'm not convinced this is anything to do with 'learner journeys', more a continuation of the experiences they have come to expect in their everyday interactions with Google, YouTube, Wikipedia and the like. But, of courser, we already have those platforms and they continue to play a role. This post continues my commentary to the Learning Insights 2012 Report produced by Kineo for e.learning age magazine. The ninth of ten 'insights' is that ‘Learner journeys need to become seamless'.
