70:20:10 - Beyond the Blend

Charles Jennings

There are many other examples of ‘blending’ learning stretching back into the past, too. In 2003 the UK Department of Education and Training defined it as “ learning which combines online and face-to-face approaches ”.

Human-AI Decision Systems

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In the past two decades we’ve seen a number of examples where the combination of humans and machines make better decisions that either one on its own. Sabermetrics , - the use of statistics in baseball to project a player’s performance and career, - is one such prominent example.

Coaching Should Be An Expectation Of All Connected Leaders

Dan Pontefract

Coaching is not a formulaic process when demonstrating the connected leader attributes. He was (and still is) the example connected leaders should be striving for. The most overused yet inappropriately applied term in an organization is “coaching.”.

Open Innovation 2.0

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Examples abound of companies that failed to commercialize the inventions developed in their labs. In his 2003 book, Open Innovation: The New Imperative for Creating and Profiting from Technology , UC Berkeley professor Henry Chesbrough outlined this new model for business innovation.

Lean Principles in the Digital Economy

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.

Birgit Mager and the Evolution of Service Design

Adaptive Path

After sleeping on it for one night, I thought, “Well, that’s really interesting–to bring design into this challenge of creating organizations and processes and interactions that are customer oriented.” For example, former students of mine are running a successful service design company in Cologne: “Minds and Makers”. They started to work with a big European energy provider, initially to redesign the process of invoicing.

A Growing Backlash Against the Relentless Advances in Technology?

Jobs in the Age of Watson

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

For example, in a paper written in 1930, economist John Maynard Keynes wrote : “We are being afflicted with a new disease of which some readers may not yet have heard the name, but of which they will hear a great deal in the years to come - namely, technological unemployment. Examples of complex communications include managing and leading large groups, teaching, writing books and papers, arguing legal cases, and selling sophisticated equipment.

What blogging was

David Weinberger

For example, the blogosphere (remember when that was word?) At the turn of the millennium there was no MySpace (2003) and no Facebook (2004). Amateurs could not produce material as good as professionals because professionals have gone through some controlled process to gain that status. At a recent Fellows Hour at the Berkman Center the topic was something like “Whatever happened to blogging?,”

Informal Learning – the other 80%

Jay Cross

Improving service and processes. Most workers report that they often need to work around formal procedures and processes to get their jobs done. One aspect of informal learning that makes it so powerful also makes the informal process forgettable: it often comes in small pieces.

Harold Jarche

“The effects of reading aren’t always obvious, and as a result, many of us don’t always pay attention to what our brain is processing, and we just go along in whatever distraction the world guides us. Yogurt gets a culture shock (Daily Express, 11 November 2003, page 19).

Driving Productivity Might Revolutionize HR or Kill It

Kevin Wheeler

Have you invested in systems, technology and process improvements to lower costs and improve the speed to hire, develop, retain or engage your employees? The evidence shows that increases in productivity significantly lag the investment in tools and process improvements. It’s only after significant time that we begin to find new and innovative ways to use the tools and adjust our processes accordingly. An example is the introduction of the typewriter.

Twitter Is Where Conversations Go To Die

Luis Suarez

An Ethics Primer

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

In The Use of Pleasure he talks of morality as “self-formation as an ‘ethical subject,’ a process in which the individual delimits that part of himself that will form the object of his moral practice, defines his position relative to the precept he will follow, and decides on a certain mode of being that will serve as his moral goal.” A classic example of this is the Ten Commandments, which requires that adherents be honest, to not covet, to not kill, and the like. Hume, 2003) G.E.

The Science of Complex Systems

Prior to joining the Santa Fe Institute in 2003, he was the leader and founder of the high energy physics group at Los Alamos National Lab. Metaphorically we use biological terms, for example the DNA of the company or the ecology of the marketplace. For example, if they know the population of a metropolitan area in a given country, they can estimate, with approximately 85 percent accuracy, its average income and the dimensions of its sewer system.

The Future of Online Learning: Ten Years On

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Bandwidth is in the process of becoming ubiquitous, and though we may complain about the price, it is already, relatively speaking, cheap. Despite set-backs – for example, the lobbies by private corporations to prevent the deployment of municipal Wi-Fi – it is not unreasonable to expect that inexpensive wireless broadband will be ubiquitous in most populated areas. Processing Computers have as well become more reliable.

David Weinberger

Yochai points to a number of factors, but focuses on fairness: of outcomes, of intentions, and of processes. Processes: Tyler (2003) showed that procedural justice correlated with internalized compliance. The image projected to the crowd is one of lack of regard for process. That allows the next person to use us as an example. Yochai Benkler is giving a talk about his new and wonderful book, The Penguin and the Leviathan. (I I interviewed him about it here.).

Power of informal learning in developing managers

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

4, Winter 2003. For example, McCall et al. 1988) found that of thirty-five managerial job skills (for example, negotiating skills), managers developed thirty of them through informal learning (for example, job assignments). Our study suggested that managers learn mostly from informal learning, that proficiency is the product of informal learning, and that metacognitive knowledge and self-regulation skills moderate informal learning and the transfer process.

LMS Conversation with Tracy Continues

A "Use Case" is an example of how a particular user will use the system. And, your description of the process to get the LMS starting in 2003 will resonate with MANY (if not most) people in our field This is a somewhat different experience for me. Tracy Hamilton and I are having a weird kind of slow, public conversation using our blogs. But it also feels like a reasonable way to do it - which makes it somehow even more weird.

This point of view was famously argued by Nicholas Carr in his provocative 2003 article IT Doesn’t Matter , which he later expanded into a book: Does IT Matter? For example, since the mid 1990s there has been a dramatic widening in the disparity in profits between the leading and lagging firms in industries that use technology intensively (as opposed to producing technology). technology to automate existing processes wasn’t enough.
