Wikis and Learning – 60 Resources

Tony Karrer

I’m involved in several discussions around how to use Wikis as part of learning solutions. So, of course, I went to eLearning Learning and I looked at Wiki , Collaborative Learning with Wikis , Wikis and eLearning 2.0 , Wikis Corporate eLearning , Social Learning with Wikis , Wiki Security and a few others. Here’s some of what I found: Why a Wiki?

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. Wikis. 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.

Tools 211

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 no problem if their Wiki is tied to the LMS.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

#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. There''s also the wiki, to create pages that anyone authorized to edit. We also use social bookmarks. The web is not just Facebook; it is not just social classrooms.

CPsquare’s Connected Futures Workshop

Nancy White

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). Articulate strategies to introduce new social technologies to a community (Domain and Practice).

Increasing “Jointness” and Reducing Duplication in DoD Intelligence

I Know It When I See It : Andrew McAfee’s Blog

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.

Social Media Strategy Planning & Measurement – What’s Working? With social media, however, strategy is a compass, not a map, because it is a fast changing territory. This topic is designed to give you some tools and ideas for including social media appropriately in your overall organizational strategic plan and to measure its effectiveness. Whenever considering adopting a solution consider asking the following three questions. (1)

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

Tony Karrer

Last week I did a webinar with Mark Sylvester of Intronetworks - Tapping the Social Grid. The crux of the talk was: Why being able to tap into the social grid is important for concept workers. 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.
