Buzzword: Micro-learning

Xyleme

If you’re like me, you’re probably starting to get a bit tired of people adding their particular spin to learning – all in search of the holy grail that is the “right way” to make learning happen. Looking up the best way to buy a rail ticket from the UK to Germany. I was introduced recently to a new buzz word making its way across the learning & development industry: Micro-learning.

In praise of Texture

Dave Snowden

It is a similar story-telling convention adopted in the Game of Thrones, where the white walkers are an enemy that do not tire, that are death personified (the COVID-19 virus has been identified to be a bit of a zombie virus ; there is nothing to kill as the virus is already dead).

The race to platform education

George Siemens

As liberating as the web is, tremendous centralization of control is occurring in numerous spaces: Google in search/advertising/Android, Amazon in books/cloud computing, Facebook in social networks, etc. Which means that decisions makers are motivated (partly out of fear of appearing ill-informed, partly out of not wanting to take risks) to adopt approaches that integrate fairly seamlessly across the education spectrum. Why buy an LMS when you can buy the educational process?

How Will AI Likely Impact How We Work, Live and Play?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

When are we likely to see self-driven vehicles coursing along our streets and highways? “It is not yet clear how much better self-driving cars need to become to encourage broad acceptance,…” notes the AI100 report. “ But if future self-driving cars are adopted with the predicted speed, and they exceed human-level performance in driving, other significant societal changes will follow.”.

How to ‘Take One for the Team’

Dan Pontefract

When you put the word ’team’ into a Google search box, you’re presented with over one billion results. I’ve no idea why there is a gap of 400 million search terms between Google and Microsoft, but either way there are a lot of opinions and there is a lot of content out there related to the term ’team’.

The Datafication of Business and Society

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

But digitalization , - its companion concept which captures the impact of the digital revolution on the economy and society, - has been in use since computers were widely adopted around 60 years ago. Data is now being generated by just about everything and everybody around us, including not only the growing volume of online and offline transactions, but also web searches, social media interactions, billions of smart mobile devices and 10s of billions of IoT smart sensors. .

The Continuing, Transformative Impact of IT

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Twenty years into the Internet revolution, businesses and consumers have come to expect that information is a Google search away, friends and associates are always available on social networking sites, and goods and services (including public goods such as education and government services) can be had instantly from an online vendor anywhere in the world at any time of the day.”. Until recently, they have been slow to adopt Web-based platforms, big data analytics, and other IT innovations.

How to Survive Air Travel - For Real

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Instead of search the whole airport looking for the thing you want (like a check-in counter) look for a sign. Pick your search ahead of time, if you can. Have your itinerary and/or boarding passes and travel documents such as passports and visas in your hand (it''s amazing how many people spend an hour in line and then spend time in front of the counter searching for their information, as though they hadn''t expected that they might need it).

Crowd-milking

The basic premise of the long tail is that there is an equal or perhaps larger market of those willing to buy unpopular items (or services) than all the people who buy the popular items.

My 25 Years of Ed Tech

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Diversity University started out as an educational MUD; Walden University was also an early adopter, and a whole bunch more. There was a lot of debate about whether education should support federated repositories, like ADL's CORDRA, which would be closed, or would adopt more open repositories along the model of OAI. What made it tricky for people to adopt was that the badge data was 'cooked' into the digital badge image, which was taking the tech a step too far.

Beyond Social Media

Doc Searls

Twitter is now as necessary to tweeting as Google is to search. There’s a degree of interoperability, thanks mostly to Google’s adoption of XMPP (aka Jabber) as an IM protocol (Apple and Facebook have too). They’re where the ideas, the conversations, the intentions (to buy, to converse, to relate) and the money all start. Consider the possibility that “social media&# is a crock.

David Weinberger

We used to use the library to search for books and talk about them at home. In the future, we’ll use our computer to search for books, and talk about them at our libraries. This puts domain expertise and search experts together. Maybe libraries should replicate this, adopting information-driven departments. Maybe a library should buy lots and lots of different e-readers, in different form factors.
