PLENK 2010

Harold Jarche

Tweet I was not able to attend any of the sessions at PLENK (Personal Learning Environments & Networked Knowledge) 2010, a Massively Open Online Course (MOOC), other than the one I facilitated on personal knowledge management. PLENK 2010 was conducted by Stephen Downes, George [Clooney] Siemens & Dave Cormier, three fellow Canadians and two who live pretty close by.

LearnTrends 2010

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Those of you waiting for the November 2010 LearnTrends Conference can stop holding your breath. Cross-posted from LearnTrends. It ain’t going to happen. Tony , George , and Jay are flat out in our efforts to make the world a better place. Also, we depend on volunteers to make LearnTrends work, and volunteers have been in short supply lately. George, Tony, and I have talked about fielding a new sort of session, perhaps in the first quarter of 2011.

2010 Shift Index - Passion and Performance

John Hagel

The release of the 2010 Shift Index. Late last week, we issued the 2010 edition of the Shift Index , updating each metric with new data.  Over two years ago, John Seely Brown and I set out on a quest, one that experts called “valuable, but foolhardy.”    What were we trying to do? We wanted to create an index that would help business leaders and policy makers to make sense of the long-term changes re-shaping our business landscape.

Reflections on ISPI 2010

Clark Quinn

Early in the year, I gave a presentation online to the Massachusetts chapter of ISPI (the international society for performance improvement), and they rewarded me with a membership. A nice gesture, I figured, but little more (only a continent away). To my benefit, I was very wrong. The ISPI organization gave each chapter a free registration to their international conference, which happens to be in San Francisco this year (just a Bart trip away), and I won!

Wordcamp 2010

Jay Cross

Conference hosts should take a lesson or two from Matt Mullenweg. Today’s Wordcamp San Francisco was simply great. Great line-up of speakers. Glorious weather. Some participants were so enthusiastic as to call for revolution and world domination by Wordpress. They see it as a platform, not a mere blogging tool. Most participants were making money from designing or installing Wordpress sites.). Admission was $50. It costs about $250/head; the difference is made up by sponsors.

Still Confused in 2010

Harold Jarche

December 21, 2010 – In light of ongoing developments related to the release of diplomatic cables by the organization Wikileaks, and the publication of information contained in those cables by mainstream news organizations, the United Nations (UN) Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Opinion and Expression and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Expression see fit to recall a number of international legal principles.

My meta-resolutions for 2010

David Weinberger

Is there any holiday that is less grounded in anything than New Year’s Eve? It celebrates what? The completion of an orbit around the Sun? But every day does that, so we’re really just celebrating having picked an arbitrary day to celebrate. Yay for us. We made it around the Sun again. Good job, Earth! What a sorry excuse for getting drunk. So, in the spirit of the season, I offer the following content-free meta-resolutions: I will make good resolutions this year.

Dan Pontefract

This entry is entitled “2010 Thanks and Spanks”. It is dedicated to those external people, outside of where I work in no particular order, and over the course of 2010 that have directly helped me in my efforts, my learning, my network, my leadership or whom have demonstrated the three legs of the new cultural stool.

PKM in 2010

Harold Jarche

Personal Knowledge Management. This post is a continuation of Sense-making with PKM (March, 2009)]. Personal = according to one’s abilities, interests and motivation (not directed by external forces). Knowledge = the capacity for effective action (know how). Management = how to get things done. What is PKM? PKM is an individual, disciplined process by which we make sense of information, observations and ideas.

Predictions for 2010

Clark Quinn

eLearning Mag publishes short predictions for the year from a variety of elearning folks, and I thought I’d share and elaborate on what I put in: I’m hoping this will be the ‘year of the breakthrough’. Several technologies are poised to cross the chasm: social tools, mobile technologies, and virtual worlds. Each has reached critical mass in being realistically deployable, and offers real benefits.

Our intention is get the conversation focused on what’s important for business, including the training & learning department – working smarter. Learning is just a means and not the end, but this perspective has somehow been lost along the way in many organizations over the past decades. A toolbox.

SharePoint 2010: The New Employee Gateway?

Dan Pontefract

Enter SharePoint 2010, due to release in Q2 of 2010. As customers begin to appreciate the delta between previous versions of SharePoint and the 2010 enhancements, it’s my belief that more and more organizations will utilize it as a basis for becoming the ‘employee gateway’, or, as I wrote earlier, a window into the organization. SharePoint 2010 has better 2.0 Perhaps I am naively oversimplifying things, but take a look at the SharePoint 2010 screenshot below: .

Cisco’s Public Services Summit 2010 brought 200+ public officials together for a couple of days in Stockholm, a five-and-a-half hour train ride to Oslo, and an evening at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert. The first day I flew in from Qatar. A speedy car whisked me from Stockholm airport to the Sheraton; I arrived just as my session on educational reform began. Surprise, surprise! A participant from Los Angeles was also named James Cross (which is the name in my passport.).

No Predictions, Just Some ‘Hopes’ for Learnerprise in 2010

Dan Pontefract

In the corporate world and thus corporate learning, I’m not making any predictions per se, but I would like it to be known that my sincere hope in 2010 is related to the rise of ‘Learnerprise’. The 4 opportunities I ‘hope’ occur in 2010 are as follows: Champion Learnerprise. 2010, in my humble opinion, should be about the organization shifting the focus from the all-instructor-led and eLearning only intravenous drip of ‘training’, to one that supports learnerprise.
