Here’s some of what I found: Why a Wiki?

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.

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. There were about 7 examples mentioned including Intuit using a Wiki-like system for customers to ask questions/get advice around taxes, using a group blog with students prior to a formal learning event, the US Army's use of collaboration tools to share best practices in Iraq, and several others. 20,000 wikis with more than 100,000 users.

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?

methods to see examples of where and how tools such as social networks, social bookmarking, wikis, blogs, and RSS readers fit into day-to-day knowledge work and larger learning solutions. 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.

Learning Organizations, eLearning 2.0 and Edupunk

Tony Karrer

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 no problem if their Wiki is tied to the LMS.

I Know It When I See It

Established vendors of collaboration software are modifying their offerings and repositioning them as social software platforms that have all the features and functions necessary to support the new modes of interacting and getting work done. Smaller companies and startups often say that the established vendors “just don’t get it&# and that the new features they’ve incorporated – blogs, wikis, discussion forums, tags, etc.

2011: Integration

Harold Jarche

Early Adopters. Social Networks. Wikis. Social Bookmarks. I was asked to make some predictions for 2011 but missed the deadline. Instead of predictions, I think there are some trends that may cross the chasm this year. This follows on a post I wrote a year ago that included this table: (2009). Innovators. Crossing the Chasm. Technology. Simulations. Micro-blogs. Blogs. Role-playing. Waves. Mobile. Ideas. Emergent Learning. PKM – PLN – PLE.

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. Wikis need to be extremely focused on real tasks/projects in order to be adopted.

First Thoughts After ASTD Sessions

Tony Karrer

Generally people were familiar with what a Wiki was, but few had ever edited a Wiki page or seen it done. 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.

Models for Learning Questions

Tony Karrer

I recommend adopting their tools and their security mechanisms. 2) How do you sale to the NON-Gen Y's and Millennials who are in upper management who fear things like wiki's? 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). My suggestion is that you don't really try to sell Yammer or a Wiki or any other kind of tool.

PLE - PWLE Discussion Contiunes - Corporate vs Personal and IP Rights

Tony Karrer

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?

Social Grid Follow-up
