But even more importantly, we don't want to include some of this information in the question.

The Form of Informal

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The words 'formal' and 'informal' are used in distinct senses. In one sense, something is 'formal' or 'informal' according to whether it forms some part of a recognition infrastructure - the system of classes, programs and institutions that constitute our certificate and degree granting structure. What complicates the matter is that the criticism - 'how can somebody write a book about informal learning' misses the mark in both senses.

The Paradox of Informal Learning (Form of Informal?)

Tony Karrer

If you read my blog, you know that while I'm a big believer in the need to improve human performance outside of classic formal learning interventions, e.g., personal learning support , you also know that the term and a lot of the discussion around informal learning makes me worried. Informal Learning is Too Important to Leave to Chance I just saw two posts on Informal Learning that made helped me to realize the dilemma. Informal learning faces the same paradox.

The Form of Informal - 2

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Responding to Tony Karrer, More on the Form of Informal What do you think the meaning of the word 'dictating' is? Rather, some types of structure tend toward 'informal', while other types of structure tend toward 'formal'. What's interesting is that the moment you begin to understand the form that informal learning took and provide support for that kind of learning in the future you start down the path of dictating solutions."

More on the Form of Informal

Tony Karrer

Stephen Downes has a great post entitled The Form of Informal which - well exactly what it says it discusses - the form of informal learning. In his post, he questions a couple of things I've said in The Paradox of Informal Learning (Form of Informal?) and Informal Learning is Too Important to Leave to Chance. No one says its structure free, but how much structure is allowed before it becomes too much to be informal?

Informal Learning and Learning Management Systems

Tony Karrer

Saw an interesting post by Dennis Coxe - Sailing by the Sound: What Informal Learning Means To Me where he points out the conflict today between learning management systems and content access / informal learning: But what really struck me is that from what I have read is that the real rebellion against formal training versus what is called "informal training" is the slavish devotion to learning management systems. Informal learning proponents are saying "Tear down that wall."
