Social Bookmarking for Link Sharing

Tony Karrer

On TrDev, we've been discussing the sharing of links via forum posts vs. social bookmarking tools such as del.icio.us. I've discussed this before: Social Bookmarking Tricks for Group Learning Personal and Group Learning Using Web 2.0 See her recent post about Second Wave Adoption and her follow-up post on Time to Experiment. Of course, the question is whether people will adopt this.

Social Software Adoption

Tony Karrer

You can find all sorts of interesting resources via eLearning Learning around Adoption. Not surprising, the terms most closely associated with Adoption are Adoption of Social Software and Adoption of Enterprise 2.0. There are some great resources on this such as: Ten tips for choosing & using social software Adoption of Web 2.0 Revisited Social Media - The Challenge of Adoption - Rob’s Dummies Guide The secret sauce to successful Enterprise 2.0

Across the chasm

Harold Jarche

I’ve written before how I use the chasm model to explain my professional work of 1) seeing what is ready to cross the chasm by 2) staying connected to the innovators & being an early adopter so that 3) I can help mainstream organizations. In the field of web social media for workplace performance, what technologies are the Innovators experimenting with? Early Adopters. Social Networks. Social Bookmarks.

Google Plus – One Social Networking Tool to Rule Them All

Luis Suarez

Like I have mentioned yesterday, it’s been a few days already since I jumped the shark and joined the bunch of early adopters who have been hammering down, and taking for a spin, the latest iteration of Google to get social with Google Plus , right after Google Wave and Google Buzz. ICT ) around the same time; in 2003 I got things started with my first internal corporate blog, followed in 2005 with my first social bookmarking site called Dogear.

sense-making beyond the outrage

Harold Jarche

I was an early adopter and thought it was going to help make a better civil society — I was naive it seems. Currently most of the platforms are controlled by value-extracting corporations focused on procuring behavioural data, identifying social connections, and selling this information to the highest bidder. This makes it difficult to promote a platform like Twitter in order to learn about social networks.

PKM – start small

Harold Jarche

Pretty well anyone with a personal computer saves web sites to their Favorites/Bookmarks. I’ve explained it before in Free Your Bookmarks. If an organization or department decided to put everyone’s bookmarks into a social application it would make for a large repository of links. There may be some effort in going through these bookmarks and adding more descriptive tags but it could be spaced over a period of time.

Learning Organizations, eLearning 2.0 and Edupunk

Clark Quinn

The questions she raises are: Is the edupunk ideology saying that the use of social media in commercial learning management systems is an assault on the very philosophy of learning 2.0? Adoption. If you have a population of learners who have already adopted tools (such as blogging and social bookmarking) for themselves that are different than the corporate tool (the LMS) do you ask them to move? so that you can control visibility of bookmarks.

Personal, collaborative, and informal learning methods are emerging that leverage tools such as blogs, wikis, social bookmarking, and RSS readers. We will look at adoption trends and examples of eLearning 2.0. ASTD TechKnowledge 2009 is coming to Las Vegas in January.

Social Learning at TELUS by Dan Pontefract

Luis Suarez

On a rather regular basis one keeps bumping into not only some rather interesting and engaging dialogue amongst your social network(s), but also precious little gems that are worth while sharing across beyond G+. In case you haven’t seen it just yet, let me encourage you all and have a look into Social Learning at TELUS. In it, Dan shares how they keep making use of social tools like blogs, wikis, microblogging, etc.

Social Media and Learning: Implications

Harold Jarche

Jason Willensky – “Will we be forced to chase hot tools and social platforms to stay competitive… is this an ever-expanding universe of tech goodies? Tools also make it possible to learn from others… following their bookmarks, for example, or using the tools to make contacts, simplify your own research, and more. Specifically, what are some design options for courses that might be “open ended&# that the social networking tools allow?

Network Learning: Working Smarter

Harold Jarche

Jane Hart, another colleague at the Internet Time Alliance, has examined social media and learning in the context of the workplace and has noted that much of it is informal (Hart 2010). Social learning is about getting things done in networks. Network learning, at the individual level, includes: Personal directed learning – how individuals can use social media for their own (self-directed) personal or professional learning; and. Social bookmarks (e.g.,

Social Business Begins by Unleashing Your Business Talent

Over the last couple of days, two rather interesting, and noteworthy, articles over at Technology Review , written rather nicely by Erica Naone , have been making the rounds out there on Social Web around Enterprise 2.0 the huge amount of hidden talent of your workforce by empowering them to make best use of social software tools! For those folks who may not have heard about it, I am referring to IBM’s Technology Adoption Program , a.k.a.

Innovation through network learning

Harold Jarche

Just as we get used to new business models like Amazon or Google, someone like Alvis Bigis knits together an excellent piece on how American business needs to get social. I now take for granted my network learning processes, using social bookmarking; blogging and tweeting, and these habits make collaboration much easier. One difficult aspect of adopting network learning in an organization is that it’s personal. Tweet Innovation.

The Harvest: After Event Reflections

Nancy White

I wanted to point out some examples of how people have shared out their harvest on blogs, tweets, and other social media to create external value. Via Nadia Manning-Thomas of the CGIAR ICT-KM program shared two after event reflections on their blog, one on a particular activity design and debrief of a social media workshop. Wikis need to be extremely focused on real tasks/projects in order to be adopted.

Communities of Practice

Harold Jarche

I’m reviewing my resources on communities of practice and synthesizing some of the articles I’ve come across and added to my social bookmarks or blogged about on my Communities Thread. Early Adopters who are members of the community that you are serving, especially those who are already well-connected. For anyone interested in the technology , I discussed how to select social network platforms as we were conducting our Work Literacy workshops.

Making Business Sense of Social Media and Social Networking – Twitter For Business

Luis Suarez

Yesterday evening, my time, I attended a rather interesting webcast with Sandy Carter , IBM’s Worldwide Sales Vice President, IBM Social Business, Collaboration, and Lotus Sales and Evangelism, along with Jeremiah Owyang , Industry Analyst at Altimeter Group , on the topic of Why Be Social? Will Social Software follow the same trend? Will social networking tools become our next Pandora’s Box, just like email is today for most of us?

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Tony Karrer

Existing Adoption At the very start I asked the audience for examples of where they were currently using these tools as part of learning solutions. I discussed the fact that there was a common Adoption Pattern that went from personal adoption to work groups to organization. So while the session focused on organizational adoption, it likely was the case that you should look for targeted adoption opportunities.

#OEB14 Rheingold, Lewin, Stevenson

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Social learning is what makes us human. It''s also more social - learning has been more and more peer-to-peer and not just listening to the teacher. In 2008 I was able via a MacArthur grant to create a social media classroom. We also use social bookmarks. The web is not just Facebook; it is not just social classrooms. These are summary notes of the presentations at Online Educa Berlin, 2014.

First Thoughts After ASTD Sessions

Tony Karrer

Almost no one was familiar with social bookmarking. Oh, and I just saw that Kevin Jones posted his thoughts around the session: TK08 - Tony Karrer and Implementation of Social Learning. People did not offer up as many examples of where they'd like to use Blogs, Wikis, Social Bookmarking as I anticipated. Good adoption.

Learning to work smarter

Harold Jarche

Just yesterday I explained social bookmarks, feed readers and using Twitter as a search engine to a “digital immigrant&# the same age as me. The power of micro-blogging with Twitter so far is quite impressive and I was one who adopted this medium with a fair bit of skepticism. With some individual skills in using social media, the next question an organization may ask is how to start an online community.

Models for Learning Questions

Tony Karrer

I recommend adopting their tools and their security mechanisms. Yammer (internal twittering) is almost impossible to explain to someone who has no experience with any social networking (and probably not with anything more than email lists). As a side note, I think selling Twitter/Yammer is harder than selling social bookmarking and wikis. Social bookmarking and wikis are often a smart replacement with obvious side benefits.

We are using Howard Rheingold’s Social Media Classroom as our home base this round (we vary each time to add to our own learning!) Connected futures: New social strategies and tools for communities of practice is a five-week workshop for community managers, designers and conveners to explore social strategies and tools to support them (referred to by some as Web2.0).

versus my question: if people will adopt these tools and approaches over time, then as a corporation, if you want to be able to keep the content after an employee leaves, especially blog content. then shouldn't you make sure you provide these tools now rather than having tools adopted that are outside the firewall and personally owned where you will lose the content if the employee leaves?

A few of the tools and methods I use to tap into the social grid. Other Ways to Tap into the Social Grid In the session, I discussed the use of LinkedIn, Twitter and Blogging as my primary tools for tapping into the social grid. It's much more social than LinkedIn.

Social media in a sense aren't a competing set of technologies in an “attention&# market, but a co-evolving ecosystem (autopoeisis as it is known). One of the issues in all of the social media constructs, including Twitter, is how we decide on intermediary trust.
