John Hagel

  My colleague and friend, John Seely Brown, has just come out with “A New Culture of Learning: Cultivating the Imagination for a World of Constant Change” , co-authored with Doug Thomas, a professor at the University of Southern California.  We believe that this new culture of learning can augment learning in nearly every facet of education and every stage of life.

The After Action Review (AAR) of the event is now up on the wiki if you are interested! The DGroup was augmented with a Wikispaces wiki to enable quick capture, summarization and machine translation of the group emails. The language sub groups were the most utilized, and few reported using the wiki/Google Translate option (80% did not use it, but the 20% who did found it useful. The overall wiki page view does show a doubling in traffic during the event.

Innovation is not a repeatable process

Harold Jarche

I recently wrote about PKM and innovation and concluded that in order to address complex problems, businesses have to rely more on individual tacit knowledge, but this type of knowledge is never easy to convey to others. This is how we create a culture of innovation.

Reflections on 15 years

Clark Quinn

We also have rich new ways to interact from microblogs to wikis (collaborative documents). While this is not easy to effect in many circumstances, we know the practices and culture elements we need, and it is our commitment to get there, not our understanding, that is the barrier.

A really good example from the Gamification Wiki is the use of frequent flyer points. Serious games will move through various phases, from simple memorization games (such as versions of Jeopardy ) to simply branching storyline games to more complex gaming environments intended to stimulate deep knowledge and causal reasoning. It will be interesting to see how translation services are able to approach direct translation without losing the cultural and metaphorical flavour behind it.
