workplace learning — yesterday, today, tomorrow

Harold Jarche

When I became a freelancer in 2003, remote work was not the norm but being located in rural Atlantic Canada I had little choice unless I wanted to move to a metropolitan area. My situation in 2003 has become the norm. Ten years ago — workplace learning in 10 years — I wrote that in 2019 much of the workforce will be distributed in time & space as well as in engagement.

Even When Plans Are Useless, Planning Is Indispensable

Have social networks replaced groups?

David Weinberger

Maxim Weinstein responded in an email to my post about what the social structure of the Internet looked like before Facebook, making the insightful point that Facebook meets the four criteria Clay Shirky listed for social software in his 2003 keynote at eTech. For example, Clay’s post from 2003 marvels at a “broadband conversation” in which the participants communicated simultaneously by conference call, through a wiki, and through a chat, each from a different source.

Jaap van Till has posted an aggregation of thoughts and links to remind us of what it seems we have so much trouble remembering: The Internet is not a thing but an agreement.

Learning in a connected enterprise

Harold Jarche

In 2003 I was suddenly unemployed, jettisoned shortly before the learning technology company where I was CLO went bankrupt. My network in 2003 was quite small and mostly Canadian. Look where I live, in Sackville. So how did I get to Sydney, NSW today? How did I learn to do what I now do? The same way everyone will be learning as the network era emerges. I learned by doing; but mostly through sharing, especially on this blog.

Revenge is not sweet

Mind Hacks

Empirical research by Crombag, Rassin, and Horselenberg (2003) showed that most people do not actually take revenge but merely have thoughts, feelings, and fantasies about it (see also Crombag, 2003).

Charles Jennings

In 2003 the UK Department of Education and Training defined it as “ learning which combines online and face-to-face approaches ”. The term ‘blended learning’ first appeared in the late-1990s when web-based learning solutions started to become more widely used and were integrated on one way or another with face-to-face methods. Of course the ‘blending’ concept has been around for much longer than the past few years.
