    [Information] Quiet blog
    This has been one of the longest stretches of non-blogging for me since I stopped blogging every freaking day in around 2010. For the past twenty years I’ve barely ever mentioned it because it felt like bragging. It still does. Sorry.). But it’s not really the traveling that’s kept me non-blogging. But I’m not there yet.

    [Information] Facilitating Knowledge Work #wolweek
    What was interesting to me was to think of the ways in which we can facilitate around those activities.  We shouldn’t assume good research skills, and assist individuals in doing understanding what qualifies as good searches for input and evaluating the hits, as well as establishing and filtering existing information streams.

    [Information] How Can Nonprofits Switch From Scarcity to Abundance Mindsets When It Comes To Self-Care?
    Flickr Photo by TheeErin. ”  The scarcity mindset exists when it comes to self-care because there is a lack of belief that self-care can help their organization achieve better results. Not prioritizing self-care, as an individual or as part of the organization’s way of working can lead to burnout. Scarcity captures the mind.

    [Information] Reconciling two worlds
    Traditional learning professionals have an opportunity to contribute to an information age approach, with an awareness of the bigger picture. I do like that Will, at the end, argues that we need to be less divisive and I agree. A recent post by my colleague in the Internet Time Alliance, Jane Hart , has created quite the stir.

    [Information] Learning and frameworks
    That’s why, by the way, that information dump and knowledge test isn’t a learning solution. People need to actively apply the information. Let’s start with what we know about how we learn. Learning is action and reflection. Instruction (education, training) is designed action and guided reflection.

    [Information] JAY CROSS – Pushing the Envelope to the End
    You’re learning all the time, taking in new information and making sense of it. When most were still focused on integrating eLearning into courses and curricula Jay was shouting that the real power wasn’t in structured learning at all but in workplace and in informal and social learning approaches. No, this is learning as a life skill.

    [Information] a useful model
    The other 95% was just taken care of by the informal networks in the organization. All those informal networks became hyper-connected. “essentially, all models are wrong, but some are useful” – George Box. The shift to the network era will not be easy for many people and most organizations. Only 10% is learned from formal education.

    [Information] Under the ‘Content’ Cover
    It may have good production values, with a consistent look-and-feel, elegant prose, and great images, but it also tends to have too much rote information, little enough concepts, sparse and un-illuminating examples, and no real emotional ‘ hook’. And I think that simplification is a path to bad learning design. Right? design

    learning has become my dominant form of informal learning. Cognitive Surplus Clay Shirky’s incisive book Cognitive Surplus showed that, despite great progress in the 20 th C, most children and adults were staring at a TV for most of their lives - 20 hours a week, totalling one trillion hours per annum. The total is approaching 1.5 years.

    Our first venture together was the ‘Informal Learning Unworkshop’ series, where we used a different web conference platform each time, sometimes changing in mid-course when the technology broke. His 2006 book on informal learning changed the course of an industry. Our first face to face face meeting was in a pub, 50 km from my house.

    It amazed me how he could remember all that information and point out things as we walked.  He had a phenomenal memory; he read more than anyone I know, and synthesized the information to create an impressive intellect. His book  Informal Learning   had a major impact on the field. He was influential. He will be missed.

    For example, the work we did at IDEO with Walgreens, they had to change regulations state by state to bring about the service model we designed for pharmacists because of all these personal health information issues that were being raised. Can you give me a bit of a preview? First, I’ve never thought that it’s an either/or situation.

    Many blue collar jobs, such as manufacturing and other forms of production, fall into this category.  So do white-collar, information-based activities like accounting, record keeping, dealing with simple customer service questions, and many kinds of administrative tasks.  Will mid-skill, mid-pay jobs continue to decline?;

    It is structured to take advantage of the complexity and noisiness of social networks, allowing information to flow as freely as possible, and affording workers the space to make sense of it and share their experiences and knowledge. Governance, business, and learning models are moving from centralized control to network-centric foundations.

    [Information] Mitra’s SOLE – 10 reasons on why it is ‘not even wrong’
    It saddens me when learning methods are reduced to simplistic, ill-informed acronyms and practices. SOLE is one such acronym, or as one teacher trainer called it a ‘pseudo-framework’. SOLE is not a method based on sound learning theory. It’s not new, at worst a destructive force in education, doing, in my opinion, more harm than good.
