OCTOBER 6, 2008
for Learning Professionals Course is starting and the topic is Social Bookmarks. Here's the great resource / assignment that Harold and Michele created for this week: Week 2: Free Your Bookmarks with Social Bookmarking This has sparked some interesting activity and makes me think that the net effect of this kind of open course is a bit more interesting than I had thought. The second week of our Web 2.0

At DevLearn, many people lamented the difficulty of explaining the benefits of social media to their managers and peers. Jane mined the submissions of her delightful tools database and came up with 100+ ways to use social media for learning. Tags: social tools
sense-making with social media
MARCH 22, 2016
As Donald notes, sharing and posting on social media are weaker forms of learning than longer form blogging can be. Using social media for learning requires an understanding of how each tool or platform can support your own sense-making. I archive with Diigo social bookmarks.
PKM as pre-curation
JULY 12, 2012
The act of writing a blog post, a tweet, or an annotation on a social bookmark all force you to think a bit more than clicking once and filing it to an automated system. Content curation is NOT the same as social sharing, reposting/retweeting, liking or favoring a specific content item.
Examples of eLearning 2.0
SEPTEMBER 22, 2008
internal processes on wiki starting to use wikis internally Moving faculty bookmarks to Delicious use wiki for learners to craft definition of 'seamless service' after searching orgs that proclaim to provide seamless service We hope to build wikis that our students can use to share information.

collecting broken images
MAY 26, 2016
It took me one click: my social bookmarks on Student Resources. I can do it on Leadership , Social Learning , Innovation , and several other topics. These examples show how PKM is a discipline that makes my professional life easier and my work more effective.
Web 2.0 Tool - Great Collaboration Example
NOVEMBER 28, 2006
tools as part of information sharing: AARF has built interfaces to the bookmarking site del.icio.us , the photo sharing site Flickr , and Digg , a site where members vote on the importance of news stories. Shortly after they add this tag, the bookmark (look at the top of the box), thumbnail of the photo (middle) or headline and description of the story (bottom) show up within the AARF E2.0 Andrew McAfee has posted about Avenue A Razorfish's (AARF) Intranet that uses Web 2.0
Ensuring knowledge flow through narration
FEBRUARY 10, 2013
Narration of work in social networks is flow. With access to more knowledge flow, via social technologies, highly networked workers can have broader, deeper and richer learning experiences than any instructional designer could ever create in advance.
Starting to work out loud
DECEMBER 17, 2012
John Stepper discusses how people can get started working out loud and shows examples of different types of networks that one could connect with. Being able to share is usually not a prime reason why people start using social bookmarks.
Taking the time to cross the chasm
OCTOBER 24, 2011
For example: The CEO who doesn’t see the value of social networks and lumps them all into the “Facebook for fun” category. I addressed some of these issues in social media for senior managers , as Michael Cook asked a similar question.
Google Plus – One Social Networking Tool to Rule Them All
JULY 5, 2011
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.
The Seek > Sense > Share Framework
FEBRUARY 10, 2014
PKM may be an individual activity but it is social as well. Research shows that work teams that need to share complex knowledge need tighter social bonds. Social networks, on the other hand, encourage diversity and can sow the seeds of innovation.
Network Learning: Working Smarter
OCTOBER 22, 2010
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. Social bookmarks (e.g.,
Lists As Part of Your Content Strategy: A Short List of Tips and Tools
SEPTEMBER 26, 2013
What I love about FAQs is that you can easily transform them in Social FAQ s by adding real questions asked by your audience. Take for example, ” The 100 Tweeters of Social Good You Have to Follow in 2013 ” or the Top Nonprofit Blogs. Photo by Andrew Watt.
MARCH 17, 2010
Ross Dawson shows five ways to add value to information (my examples/descriptions follow): Filtering (separating signal from noise, based on some criteria). A basic tool I’ve described for PKM is social bookmarking to file information.
Lessons from an early MOOC
DECEMBER 9, 2013
In September 2008, Michele Martin , Tony Karrer and I hosted a 6-week open professional development program on social media. Here was the program we created: Introduction to Social Networks. Social Bookmarks.
IBM’s Lotusphere 2011 Highlights – People-Centric vs. Content-Centric by Louis Richardson
FEBRUARY 18, 2011
His example of what would happen if all of the content from an organisation would be gone versus the same scenario where it’s the people who are gone and not the content itself is just priceless! People-Centric vs. Content-Centric: The Copernican Revolution to be a Social Business.
What tools should we learn?
JUNE 1, 2010
Social Bookmarks. Perhaps the simplest way to start sharing organisational knowledge is with social bookmarks. Many people still have their list of Bookmarks/Favourites in their web browser, but when they’re not at their computer these links aren’t accessible.
Reflections from 2011 – Redefining Your Social Web Presence
DECEMBER 29, 2011
After having put together last couple of blog posts about some of my reflections from the year we are about to end around The Social Web and Technology in general, I guess it’s now a good time to share with the world the third one from the series. Even after the Social Web.
Making Business Sense of Social Media and Social Networking – Twitter For Business

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour
DECEMBER 4, 2014
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. The forum, for example, enables the sort of online conversations that are really not feasible using email lists. We also use social bookmarks. The web is not just Facebook; it is not just social classrooms.

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+.
Social Software Adoption
AUGUST 10, 2009
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 A prime example are blogs.
Plans, structures and illusions
OCTOBER 28, 2011
For example, if someone wants to organize a march, does it need to be put forward as a proposal and agreed to by consensus of the whole? I could have saved interesting tweets to my social bookmarks but instead I decided to do a weekly review of what I had found. Tweet Here are some of the insights and ideas that were shared via Twitter this past week. Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face ~ Mike Tyson – via @DickBeveridge.
Wikis and Learning – 60 Resources

Tweet People are now the engine of change and the fuel is communications, says Jay Deragon in Systemic Impact of Social Technology. The #1 influence that is threaded through all five examples above is communications. The simplest and easiest way is to replicate the tools and processes used on the open Internet – blogs, micro-blogs, social networks, social bookmarks, etc.
Social Media and Learning: Implications
JUNE 24, 2010
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?

public feed readers, social bookmarks, blogs, photos, videos]. Stories are an excellent example of learning flow.
Web 2.0 Learning
OCTOBER 29, 2008
I've read a bit from ( here , here , and here ) about Jet Blue's use of web 2.0 / social media tools to communicate between their staff of learning professionals. This is another great example of eLearning 2.0.
Web 2.0 Applications in Learning
MARCH 3, 2008
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.
PKM – start small
OCTOBER 7, 2009
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.
Social media workshops
MARCH 16, 2010
Please pass this on to people in the area who might need an introduction to social media, without any hype or sales pitch. Workshop #1: Social media for training & education (9:00 AM to noon).

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.
Emergent Knowledge Management
JUNE 15, 2007
For example, see Bill Ives' recent post , and Paula Thorton. Structure would come from a layer on top such as social bookmarking and digg, and, of course, from search across unstructured content. There would be tools like social networks that would allow us to find people inside and outside the enterprise.
Learning Organizations, eLearning 2.0 and Edupunk
JUNE 7, 2008
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? 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? For example, having social bookmarking that allows links to be kept private to a group.
Working online is different
APRIL 18, 2010
For example, I once developed a Request for Proposals with a large group distributed across several time zones. I now take for granted my online personal knowledge management processes, such as social bookmarking; blogging and tweeting, but these habits make online collaboration much, much easier. If economic conditions and events that disrupt air traffic drive organizations to use more online social tools , many people may be in for a shock.
The Harvest: After Event Reflections
NOVEMBER 24, 2010
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. Design for after the course, using tools like social bookmarks, so that artifacts can be used for reference or performance support.
