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.

TechKnowledge 2008 Blog Coverage

Tony Karrer

My experience has been that ASTD audiences do not blog as much as other audiences such as the eLearning Guild and I commented about that in More eLearning Bloggers. However, I've noticed that there have been quite a few posts discussing experiences at ASTD TechKnowledge 2008.

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. In a way, each of us votes every day for blogs. Blogging about them. You can see the ones that I most actively engage with either in the sidebar of this blog or in the sidebar of eLearning Learning. I previously had some commentary on the edublog awards.

BIALL 2008

Nancy White

She informed us that her company would be experimenting with blogs, RSS feeds etc over the coming months and using them to help share knowledge internally as well as promote their services externally. 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.

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. I typically talk with 2 or 3 new prospects each week who come to me randomly mostly based on personal introductions from people I know or through my various speaking, writing, blogging, etc. In terms of accelerating learning, blogging is definitely the best for me.

Last Year's Predictions For 2008, Reviewed

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It's the end of 2008, and while most people are predicting what will happen in 2009 , I look back at those who predicted 2008. As for e-learning, 2008 was a year in which very little actually occurred(even in gaming, the headline reads Old Standby Back On Top ). As Dave Cormier summarized , it was the year in which blogging declined, Wikipedia became old, people still didn't get it, and tentative experiments - MUVEs and MOOCs - showed only hints of what is to come.

Sitting with fire – a blog as community and reflection | Full Circle Associates

Of course, blogs can be many things, including reflective community voices. Check out the blog of the Tassajara Zen Center in California, facing many dangerous fires in their area on the Central California coast. What can we learn from this blog about community?

Reflections on Ten Years of Blogging

What did I learn about learning in 2008?

The Learning Circuit’s Blog Big Question for December is “What did you learn about learning in 2008?&# It’s good to reflect, and using the end of the calendar year is a traditional time. Consequently, I trolled back through a year of blog posts. Whew! I saw several recurrent threads, but the strongest one is on learning to learn.

Mandatory Blogging?

Tony Karrer

Over the past two years, my thoughts around blogging as a learning and networking tool have been slowly evolving. In Oct 2007, the LCB asked - Should All Learning Professionals Be Blogging? I summarized the responses in: Top Ten Reasons To Blog and Top Ten Not to Blog At the time, while I felt that blogging was something good to do, I didn't push all that hard. If they were starting on some new learning activity, I'd want them to blog.

Learning Blog

Tony Karrer

I often suggest learning blogs (see Learning and Networking With A Blog (T+D article) and Personal Learning Strategies ). In other words, blogs are a fantastic tool for Personal Learning. I often suggest during presentations that starting a blog at the beginning of any learning endeavor is a great move. I know this happens all the time, but it's a quick reminder that creating a learning blog is a great move

Blog Discussion

Tony Karrer

Dave Ferguson just raised the issue of blog discussion that has come up before when I talk about Learning and Networking with a Blog. The issue he raises in Mandatory Blogging is: Here at your own blog, you often have extended discussions. Dave points out that given the 90-9-1 Rule he's not likely to get much dialog by creating a blog, posting and waiting for comments. I actually think Dave has a pretty good blog.

Google Blog Search Problems

Tony Karrer

I rely pretty heavily on Google Blog Search to help me find people who are citing blog posts of mine so that I can see that kind of conversation. Unfortunately, it looks like Google Blog Search has decided that they will now include the entire contents of the web page rather than just the contents of the RSS feed. What this means is that I now get links to every post where the author includes my blog in their blog roll.

Blog Learning

Tony Karrer

Something I (probably too often) talk about is learning via a blog. In other words, I'm learning via blog comments and blog posts by other bloggers - likely much more than anyone reading the blog itself. Blog learning! Blog Learning! I'm not claiming this is anything new (see Blogging for Learning and Networking ) but the comment this weekend gave me new appreciation of the value proposition

Blogging at this Particular Point in My Life

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Blogging has continued to play a central role in my life since I started this blog in May of 2005. Given its role in both my work and my life, every so often I like to focus an entry on blogging itself. When I first started blogging, it was almost a giddy experience. IBM was then launching an initiative aimed at encouraging employees to blog - both internal blogs to be shared only with other employees, and external ones aimed at participating the nascent blogosphere.
