Personal processing

Clark Quinn

I was thinking about a talk on mobile I’m going to be giving, and realized that mobile is really about personal processing. Ok, so responding to email, looking up information, and more might require the phone for a keyboard (I confess to not being a big Siri user, mea culpa), but it’s still where/when/ever. So, for instance, while word processing isn’t really CPU intensive, for some reason mobile word processors don’t seamlessly integrate outlining.

Types of meaningful processing

Clark Quinn

What I’m looking for is ways to get learners to do processing in ways that will assist their ability to do. It has learners monitor the process, and then they can turn that on themselves to become self-monitoring. This processing of the rules in context exposes the underlying issues in important ways. Rather than present them with the models, I’m again looking for more meaningful processing.

It’s the process, silly!

Clark Quinn

And part of it is in the knowledge and skills of the designers, but it’s also in the process. ADDIE isn’t inherently linear, certainly as it has evolved, but in many ways it makes it easy to make it a one-pass process. Another issue, to me, is to structure the format for your intermediate representations so that make it hard to do aught but come up with useful information. So yesterday, I went off on some of the subtleties in elearning that are being missed.

Explicating process

Clark Quinn

If the performance support is just providing rote information so that the learner doesn’t have to look it up, that’s ok. I think supporting performance is important, and that we don’t do enough with models in formal learning. To me, another interesting opportunity that’s being missed is the intersection of the two.

Information, Money and Related Subjects

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Given this intangible character of money, it is not surprising that major advances in information technologies have in turn led to major advances in the way we deal with money and payments. In the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s, mainframes, minicomputers, data networks, transaction processing and data bases enabled financial innovations like ATMs and credit cards. The relationship between information and money is now closer than ever.

Social and Informal Learning : Pt 3 of the Four Greatest Challenges Series

Nigel Paine

In some ways, social and informal learning can almost be seen like that. Social and informal learning is not the greatest challenge facing learning leaders because they now have to implement it, it is the greatest challenge because leveraging social and informal learning massively increases the impact of any formal programs and is a fundamental building block to developing a learning culture and a learning organisation. This traditional process is fundamentally broken.
