Informal Snake Oil

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Jane Hart chimed in, reinforcing Harold’s point that “social learning is being picked up by software vendors and marketers as the next solution-in-a-box, when it’s more of an approach and a cultural mind-set&#. I watched vendors hi-jack the term eLearning, and I don’t want to see it happen to social or informal learning.

50 suggestions for implementing 70-20-10 (2)

Jay Cross

The 70 percent: learning from experience. People learn by doing. We learn from experience and achieve mastery through practice. Apprenticeship & peer learning. Apprenticeship is a time-honored method of learning by experience, but I suspect that it didn’t go down like the history books tell us. In the meantime, junior apprentices learn from senior apprentices. Nothing new there: we learn more from our peers than from our superiors.

50 suggestions for implementing 70-20-10 (3)

Jay Cross

The 20 percent: learning through others. Learning is social. People learn with and through others. Conversations are the stem cells of learning. People learn more in an environment that encourages conversation, so make sure you’re fostering an environment where people talk to each other. The kids will learn a lot more this way. Companies need to take advantage of the social nature of learning. Email me for information on working with the Alliance.

Technology Architecture

Clark Quinn

A few years ago, I created a diagram to capture a bit about the technology to support learning ( Big ‘L’ Learning ). The point is to characterize the relationship between underpinning infrastructure and mechanisms to support availability for formal and informal learning. Ultimately, these activities can or will be tracked through standards such as SCORM for formal learning or the new experience API (xAPI) for informal learning.

13 books on learning, people, organizations, corporate culture, and change

Jay Cross

This morning I conducted a webinar on Making Learning Stick. Funny, isn’t it, that we invest so much to help people learn and so little to help them remember? Lots of what we learn goes down the drain before becoming converted to action. To encourage participation, I gave away my favorite books for making the most of learning. Informal Learning by Jay Cross. A New Culture of Learning by Douglas Thomas and John Seely Brown.

Changing Role of the LMS

Xyleme

It seems that, for years, people have been writing obituaries for the corporate Learning Management System (LMS). Just do a quick search for “LMS is dead” and you’ll find many blog posts, articles, webinars and conference presentations discussing its demise. They have little to do with informal learning. The title says it all: Learning Management System. Joining up competencies and performance data with learning opportunities.

Cognitive and Learning Sciences

Clark Quinn

You’ll see a lot of vendors/sessions/webinars touting neuroscience or brain-based. Yes, learning is really about strengthening neural links. For instruction, and other aspects like performance support and informal learning, however, cognitive (or social) is the right level. And, to be clear, learning sciences are a subset of the cognitive sciences. Invest in solid learning and performance design first. meta-learning

Think for yourselves, plagiarists

Jay Cross

In 2006, Jossey-Bass published a book of mine on Informal Learning. The book describes informal learning as “the unofficial, unscheduled, impromptu way people learn to do their jobs” It compares formal learning to riding a bus and informal learning to riding a bicycle. The book says that “Work = Learning; Learning = Work.” ASTD InfoLine : Designing for Informal Learning b y Bruno Neal, Linda Hainlen.

Supporting the Social Workplace Learning Continuum

Jane Hart

In my previous blog post I explained how I recognized it is difficult for a lot of organisations to support informal and social learning in their organisations, because they are unable to jump the two mindset hurdles of (a) thinking that learning only happens in training courses, and (b) that all organisational learning needs to be controlled by Training/L&D departments.

5 Disruptive Trends That Will Alter Your Mobile Strategy

Xyleme

I attended a webinar two week’s ago featuring Stacey Harris of Brandon Hall Group and Mark Hellinger of Xyleme. The topic of conversation was this idea of going mobile with your learning; a hot topic in the learning space no doubt. They touched on the concept that learning expectations have shifted with all of the new technology, which has caused change among those who are initially developing the content. This ties specifically into the third learning shift.

The differences between learning in an e-business and learning in a social business

Jane Hart

In my recent webinar I shared a slide that showed the 5 stages of workplace learning. This has attracted a lot of interest, and I’ve been asked to talk more about the differences between “learning” in Stages 1-4 and Stage 5. Working and learning in Stages 1-4 is based upon a Taylorist , industrial age mindset. Similarly e-learning was also about automating traditional training practices. LEARNING IN AN E-BUSINESS.

In preparation for our webinar with Citrix and the eLearning Guild, I’ve been thinking through the benefits of learning socially, specifically for formal learning. And you submit it, say, in formal learning, and eventually may get feedback from an instructor. That, to me, is the power of social learning.
