Learning Styles, Brain-Based Learning, and Daniel Willingham

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. He’s a cognitive psychologist (my background, btw), and is putting out the research-based views on these topics.

LinkedIn Connection Approach Rethought

Tony Karrer

If you read my blog much, you know that I use LinkedIn quite a bit to help me find experts and expertise. You can see how I do this in my posts/screencasts LinkedIn Searching for Experts and Expertise and LinkedIn Answers to Get Help. One of the techniques that I show in the first is that you can expand the reach of your search by choosing to search groups. Thus, by searching the eLearningGuild or ASTD groups, I'm able to find people who can help answer questions.

2008 2009

Tony Karrer

It's always interesting to look back at the past year - 2008, think about what has changed for me during the year, and think about what that means for the next year - 2009. To do my review, I first looked at what I was writing about and what people were reading on my blog in 2008.

Pareto Power and Leveraged Growth

John Hagel

The Pareto 80/20 rule can be used to drive significant cost restructuring, but it can also generate powerful leverage, enabling companies to deliver far more value to the market with far fewer resources.    In a time of increasing economic pressure, more companies are likely to discover the power of Pareto. Cost restructuring. My previous blog posting focused on the application of the Pareto 80/20 rule to cost restructuring.

Learning Organization Dimensions

Clark Quinn

After my post on Improving Organizational Learning Infrastructure, Daan Assen suggested that it was too limited in reference to the broader Learning Organization picture. That’s valuable feedback, because I really mean it to be the learning organization culture and the technology infrastructure, the latter of which isn’t included traditionally in the learning organization work.

BIALL 2008

Nancy White

On Thursday and Friday of last week I was at the British and Irish Association of Law Librarians annual conference in Dublin. They invited me to talk about Web 2.0 as well as developments in library and information courses and what we have been up to at the University of Brighton. I really enjoyed the 2 days and had some interesting discussions with the organisers and some of the 400 or so delegates. For the Web 2.0

Challenges 2008

Tony Karrer

This was a great exercise and the fact that I had not considered my big challenges for 2008 made it harder to do my Conference Planning for ASTD TechKnowledge 2008. So, when I look at 2008, some challenges jump out at me: Challenge #1 - How do I balance time spent between blogging, direct conversations, small group virtual conversations, small group networking, speaking at virtual conferences, speaking at conferences and writing?

Innovation on the Edge

John Hagel

I’ve played on the edge throughout most of my professional career, whether it was doing deals in the Sultanate of Oman back in the 1970s, building a start-up around a new technology called the microprocessor in 1980, building a new Internet-focused practice for McKinsey in 1993 or spending more time in places like Bangalore, Shenzhen and Shanghai in the early part of this decade (my first visit to Shenzhen was actually in 1982 when I led a major manufacturing offshoring initiative there).

Concept Worker

Tony Karrer

Learning Trends 2008 - Online - Free [link Daniel Pink's book A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future contains a description of new age - the Conceptual Age. He describes how our society has gone from agricultural to industrial to the information age. But then he describes how we've really moved on past that to a new age where the dominant value for most organizations are created by high-end knowledge workers working on concepts. He calls them creators and empathizers.

Best eLearning Blog 2008

Tony Karrer

I want to thank everyone who voted for and reads this blog - eLearning Technology. It was announced that we won for Best elearning / corporate education blog. I previously had some commentary on the edublog awards. I also lobbied for a few of my fellow bloggers who did not win. The bottom line is that none of us do this to win awards. It's nice to be recognized, but it's not going to change what we do. In a way, each of us votes every day for blogs. We spend time reading them. Commenting on them.

Jon Husband reports on this phenomenon for 2008 and advises Caveat emptor : Big firms either 1) develop standardized methodologies and practices (their business models depend upon it), or 2) if their business model does not depend upon the standardization, they will charge you a mint and a half (McKinsey ?)

Co-sponsored Corporate Learning Trends and Innovation 2008 , a week-long, all-online event. Looking back, I see lots of smoke but little fire.

Using SharePoint

Tony Karrer

I've been having fabulous conversations about using SharePoint. SharePoint is so flexible and the documentation for it is so big and diverse, that a big part of my goals have been to understand the different ways that training organizations are using SharePoint. In my post SharePoint Examples there are some great examples in the comments. I've had conversations with several of these folks in more detail and with a few others.

Corporate Policies on Web 2.0

Tony Karrer

One of the barriers commonly cited during my presentations around eLearning 2.0 (use use of Web 2.0 / social media for work and learning) is that organizations often have not established their policies or guidelines around the use of these tools. Unfortunately, companies sticking their head in the sand doesn't do any good. Employees are using these things in some way. Companies need a policy. And most corporate guidelines out there around social media are fairly similar.
