Five Ways People Adopt And Love Change

Adaptive Path

Luckily, a communications expert named Everett Rogers looked deep and long at how human beings actually look at and choose to adopt something new and innovative. I love this because Rogers doesn’t look at what sells, but at what actually gets adopted and really, truly used. I’ve found his 5 Factors most useful not near the completion of a program of work, but from the very start to consider onboarding and adoption just as much as a part of the experience as everyday use.

leads to questions about designing learning for the future - reference to the old ''cranking ifo into students'' heads diagram - claims about the future: - work at own time, place, etc - computers will revolutionize learning - along came MOOCs - investment in MOOCs: $100M - will take time but will have a major impact - why things will change.

The Puzzling Technology Adoption Discrepancy Between Individuals and Institutions

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The Foundation index, measures the fast moving advances in technology performance and adoption, as well as the shifts of global public policy that are reducing the barriers to entry and movement. For the 2013 edition, Deloitte chose to break up its findings into five separate reports, each focused on a different topic. In the case of the 2013 Shift Index, the story centers on the puzzling discrepancy in technology adoption between individuals and organizations.

A Kind of Digital “Perfect Storm”

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

We seem to be heading toward a kind of digital perfect storm , where four major IT trends are each gathering speed while interacting with and amplifying each other: mobile devices, cloud computing, social networks and big data and analytics. Mobile is furthest along while cloud adoption is taking off. And while consumer social networks have been thriving for years, their use in business has been slower than expected. .

Social networks, both in-person and online, are democratizing the workplace, and workers have an increasing amount of say in what they learn and how they learn it. Traditionally, training departments were designed for mechanical work processes. Instructional designers created curriculum around tried-and-true best practices.

Informal Learning – the other 80%

People learn to build the right network of associates and the right level of expertise through informal, sometimes even accidental, learning that flies beneath the corporate radar. Learning is social. Today’s teenager] “wants to socialize instead of communicate,” Tammy Savage, group manager of Microsoft’s NetGen division, said in a recent interview.

MOOC - The Resurgence of Community in Online Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Hence, a MOOC is to my mind, defined along the following four dimensions: [slide 3 – massive] Massive - here I mean not necessarily the success of the MOOC in attracting many people, but in the design elements that make educating many people possible. In practice, what this means is a system designed so that bottlenecks are not created in any of the four attributes: modeling, demonstration, practice, and reflection. but also to be involved in the design of these.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

To me, the theory is and always has been ‘learning networks’. This is a play on words: it is in part a theory about using networks to support learning, and in part a theory about how networks learn. It led me to propose content syndication networks in education, and to embrace social media in education. I outlined my theory in the paper ‘Learning Networks’ in 2004 [link] and George wrote his important paper also in 2004.

Learning is social. Effective managers encourage their team members to buddy up on projects, to shadow others and to participate in professional social networks. Companies need to take advantage of the social nature of learning. A Community of Practice (CoP) is a social network of people who identify with one another professionally (e.g. designers of logic chips) or have mutual interests (e.g. 50 suggestions for implementing 70-20-10.

Determinism, Best Practice, and the ‘Training Solution’

Charles Jennings

Anyone who has even the most rudimentary understanding of chess knows that to adopt a strategy based on determinism is to often invite failure. If a chemical engineer is looking to design a new process or parameters for distillation in a chemical plant she may be able to identify the volumes and sequences that produce the highest amount of pure distillate.

My 25 Years of Ed Tech

Diversity University started out as an educational MUD; Walden University was also an early adopter, and a whole bunch more. My contributions included this effort in learning design. s easy to forget the importance of the early instant messaging services, because they played such a significant role in developing a lot of the thinking that would eventually result on social networks and more. For me, 2002 was the year of learning object repository networks.

The Future of Learning Management Systems: Development, Innovation and Change

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

We’re in an inflection point, where we have mainstream adoption, different platform designs, and moving beyond digitizing the traditional classroom. And the core design of the LMS is based on an old model. Feldstein’s law: over time any ed tech application adds features and looks like a poorly designed LMS. Also, when LMSs were initially designed, they were the only app out there with any kind of scale. social networks and blogging.

And let me clear that I totally respect this part of his response , where he says that "in my part of the world and where I am currently in my career/life, this is the most fruitful and potentially influential approach that I can adopt."

Beyond Free ? Open Learning in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

They are however designed to be standalone talks as well so hopefully you will not be as unfulfilled after the talk as you might be afraid of being. I want to talk to you about the concept of free, the concept of open learning, the concept of networked learning in a networked world and the concept of the institution. What I want to examine in this talk, is not the problem MOOCs solve at the moment but the problem MOOCs were designed to solve. Mesh Networks of People.

Ethical Codes and Learning Analytics

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

To become a nurse is, for example, to adopt as a personal code the ethical norms and values that define that particular profession. And, as he notes, ““There is one and only one social responsibility of business – to use it[s]resources and engage in activities designed to increase its profits so long as it stays within the rules of the game, which is to say, engages in open and free competition.” And analytics arguably creates a social need to eliminate anonymity.
