Information Fluency provides a model for educational activities; the Personal Learning Environment (PLE) is the place where those activities happen.

Personal Learning Environment

Just as learning activities and their products map to the three areas that comprise Information Fluency, those activities and their products can be mapped to different tools and resources. About the “PLE” Personal The PLE is personal because the people, applications, tools, resources, and services are chosen to match our individual, idiosyncratic needs.

Each is adopted and discarded according to our needs and whims. Learning Many have given up on the call to rename the PLE to the Personal Living Environment. Environment In practice, the PLE is an environment, not a network. Visualizing the PLE Visualizing the PLE has become something of a pastime for education technology geeks.

Ruth Clark Claims “Games Don’t Teach”

Ruth Clark posted at ASTD an article titled “Why Games Don’t Teach.”

Ruth Clark Claims “Games Don’t Teach”

It’s a deliberately provocative title, meant to draw attention and cause controversy. A more accurate title would be “Some Games Aren’t Effective at Making People Remember Content,” but that’s a lot less likely to grab attention. Before I continue, I want to say that I enjoyed her book, eLearning and the Science of Instruction, and I have found some of the research there valuable. I respect her past contributions to the field.

However, I think Clark didn’t do a very careful review of the literature before writing her post, and I don’t think that one study is enough for her to make such a broad claim dismissing games for learning. According to Ruth Clark, you didn’t learn anything playing Oregon Trail, Carmen Sandiego or Lemonade Stand Let’s look at her summary of the research: The goal of the research was to compare learning efficiency and effectiveness from a narrative game to a slide presentation of the content. The Six Enemies of Greatness (and Happiness) To be an effective designer it helps to understand how people learn. In the course of my work, I get to meet hundreds of l&d professionals every year, not just the managers, but those who work day in day out designing, developing and delivering courses for their organisations or their clients.

To be an effective designer it helps to understand how people learn

Almost without exception I find that they're enthusiastic, intelligent and great fun to work with. Unfortunately (and you knew there'd be a 'but'), very few of them are remotely up-to-date with what we know about adult learning. I'm not claiming this is a global phenomenon, but I've certainly experienced this consistently across Europe.

Does this matter? I certainly believe so. There's book a I've been meaning to write which I hoped would address the problem. Design for how people learn is available as a paperback but I read it on the Kindle (which was fine, except some of the diagrams didn't reproduce so well). Like Cathy Moore and Connie Malamed, Julie knows how to write for the l&d audience. P.S. It’s not about knowledge transfer. In 2009 I listened to Peter Senge’s keynote address at the CSTD national conference.

It’s not about knowledge transfer

His research findings showed that the average life expectancy of large companies is about 30 years, but some are over 200 years old, and the key driver for their longevity is organizational learning. Individual learning in organizations is irrelevant, as work is almost never done by one person alone. Knowledge, Senge said, is the capacity for effective action (know how) and it is the only aspect of knowledge that really matters in business and life. Value is created by teams and mostly by networks of people. While learning may be generated in teams, this type of knowledge comes and goes. Another point that stuck with me, as I had witnessed this, was Senge’s observation that the field of knowledge management had been co-opted by information technology vendors, and had become useless for organizational learning. Knowledge cannot be transferred.

The new workplace. Six years ago few people believed that informal learning made much of a difference.

The new workplace

Today’s common wisdom is that most workplace learning is experiential, unplanned, social, and informal. Informal learning tops many training department agendas. Companies are attracted by the low price tag. However, few of them are doing much systematically. They’ve converted a few programs but they’ve failed to improve their learning ecosystems. We’ve shifted how we think about learning since the Informal Learning book came out. We used to think that communities of practice could only sprout up organically. I’m convinced that working smarter by boosting informal performance is a key to survival in today’s topsy-turvy business climate. Like this: Like Loading... The Future of Work and Learning. I have been asked to speak to a group of 14 to 16 year olds about the importance of finishing high school and attending college.

The Future of Work and Learning

It’s one of my favorite topics. But as I thought about the talk I realized that I better say something about the future of work and why college has become more important than ever. It’s fun but risky to speculate about the future of work and learning. The world is changing so fast. As leaders, we should be thinking about the future, including whom we will be leading and what they will be doing in our organizations. A good place to start is with the tech industry because that industry will affect the nature of everyone’s work in the future.

More independent workers (one estimate is 20 million by 2013) – These are the independent consultants, contract workers, free lancers, free agents, and temps who cycle in and out of organizations in a constant flow.

How to use a forum for promotion JulienRio.com

Rare are those which can rely only on Words of Mouth and natural refering. Except if you are a big corporation with sufficient funds to advertise on TV, you will certainly search for cheap but efficient ways to promote your actions. When you search the internet for ways to promote your website, you’ll be advised by almost everybody to use a forum.

However, before you start, you’ll first need to know how to use this powerful tool. Step 1. To get the most efficiency out of a forum requires you to show lots of perseverance. . You need to be extremely careful when choosing a forum. However, the nature of the website is not the only element to consider. : if you spend hours and hours advertising on a forum which has only 10 members, you’re probably wasting your time! Finally, try to find a forum you like. Therefore, do not hesitate to spend a long time searching for the right forum. Step 2. “Then, when do I promote my company?” Step 3. The rise of the introvert. Between a third and a half of the people you manage are not fulfilling their potential.

The rise of the introvert

The way they think, the way they communicate, and the way they work are at odds with modern business culture. And it is getting worse. Those are the implications of Quiet, a provocative American bestseller by Susan Cain, a former corporate lawyer. Subtitled 'The power of introverts in a world that can't stop talking', the book suggests that, by succumbing to the noisy charms of the extrovert, society and business are missing out on the insight and creativity of the more thoughtful part of the population.

The undervaluing of introverts, Cain suggests, is as damaging as the centuries-old prejudice against women. But what exactly is an introvert? Introversion and extroversion (or extraversion: both spellings are used) were first identified by Carl Jung, the Swiss psychologist, in 1921. 'Extroverts get their energy from the outer world of people and activities and events. Learning 2.0 Actualités sur le groupe. Ten LMS Features Most L&D Experts Don’t Really Care About.

E-learning – Le temps du 3.0. 7 Strategies to Make Your Online Teaching Better. This GradHacker post is by Andrea Zellner, PhD candidate in Ed Tech/Ed Pysch at Michigan State University, @andreazellner There is no doubt that online education has arrived in Higher Education.

7 Strategies to Make Your Online Teaching Better

Each year, the numbers of colleges and universities offering online courses increases. There is certainly appeal for these types of courses: students can better fit them into busy schedules and traveling to campus is no longer required. While I dabbled in teaching hybrid and online courses for a while, I have been teaching online for most of the past two years. Additionally, I began my graduate career in a hybrid PhD program: two weeks of face-to-face instruction with the rest of the instruction and work provided entirely online, and mostly asynchronously. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.Provide support for self-regulation. 7. In the end, there is a lot to consider when teaching online. P.S. What are your tips for teaching online? Le Blended Learning, nouvel horizon de MindOnSite. LMS/CMS.
