Clark Quinn

I’ve gone off on learning styles before because there’s a lot of fluff and not much substance.  I’d been pointed to Dan Willingham ’s video on brain based learning, and in pointing it to someone else, found his one on learning styles. Hear, hear (and not “see see&# or “feel feel&# :).

Forums vs. Social Networks?

Clark Quinn

I'm debating the value of forum / group / threaded discussion software vs. social network software for a particular situation. It aims at a very broad audience that includes everyone from early adopters to technology laggards.

Learning Organization Dimensions

Clark Quinn
