Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Tony Karrer

Last week I presented a session at ASTD TechKnowledge entitled eLearning 2.0 - Applications and Implications. It could just as easily have been called Web 2.0 This is something that gets discussed as emergent: see Emergent Knowledge Management , Direction of eLearning - Emergence or Big System , and Future Platforms for eLearning. I discussed my experience from Collaborative Learning Using Web 2.0 Spending or Wasting Time on Web 2.0

John Hagel

At the end of last year, I posted on the relevance of Web 2.0 For those who have not been following my blog, I attempted my own definition of Web 2.0 Some of Dions key postings on this topic are "Running a business on Web-based software" , "Web 2.0 " and "Web 2.0 The discussions in these forums raise one key issue: what is the relationship between Web 2.0 The Global SOA" and "Is Web 2.0

The Illusion of Control

Luis Suarez

Whether that may well be rather accurate, or not, you can tell me in the comments below what you think about it, if you wish, I have got this little theory going on in my mind that we, knowledge (Web 2.0) workers, may have to blame ourselves for that to happen in this Social, Digital Age. We seem to have become just that, pure data , i.e. * the* product , leaving out entirely our networks, connections and relationships. .

Top 10 Tools for Learning 2016

Luis Suarez

Top 100 Tools for Workplace Learning – for use in training, for performance support, social collaboration, etc. So from the initial list of 40 different tools I eventually came down to the following 10 for 2016, where I have just selected them based purely on learning terms versus other key elements such as productivity, life hacks, curation, content management, etc. From the good old days of the Web 2.0,

Why Don’t You Show Your Work?

Luis Suarez

There used to be a time when plenty of knowledge (Web) workers flocked to the Social Web to nurture, cultivate and build their own external social networks. Mostly, as an opportunity to introduce emergence into their work practices, while getting acquainted with all of the rage around social tools through first hand experiences. Specially, with total strangers out there on the Web. It’s what knowledge (Web) workers do.

Reclaim Blogging – On Why Your Blog Still Is Your Best Personal Branding Social Tool

Over the course of the years Hugh MacLeod has always been posting some of the most amazing content available out there on the Internet Blogosphere on various different topics, specially, related to Social Networking. Interestingly enough, plenty of people have been questioning whether, now that we have got Google Plus as well, it makes sense to dump your own blog in favour of your social activities in the various social networking sites.

The Social Enterprise – Welcome to the Era of Intrapreneurship!

Luis Suarez

There are plenty of blog posts out there that have covered very well the topic of “ The Future of the Workplace &# and the impact of social computing in helping shape up the business world to become a whole lot more open, engaged, transparent and nimble. My work processes are essentially web-based processes. While I use physical offices when spending time at any one of the institutions I work with, by primary office is the Web. Hippie 2.0

Mastering the Art of Collaboration Through Conversation

Luis Suarez

And I don’t mean that in the sense of just cultivating, building or nurturing your social capital skills per se, even though we all know they are the key to success for the 21st century organisation , as my good friend Valdis Krebs once wrote about, but I was mainly referring about work related conversations themselves. More than anything else, because, if anything, as a knowledge (Web 2.0) ‘Work is communication and the network is the amplifier of knowledge.

Enterprise 2.0, Where Art Thou?

Pretty much like for Enterprise 2.0 , since I still feel we are only now just getting started with it and its role in transforming organisations from the inside out. . Remember Web 2.0

Here we go: Learning is a dirty word because executive managers have a hard time hearing it. You think of improving skills and increasing knowledge. Social learning is the hottest thing since electricity among web enthusiasts. Knowledge management may be two words, but it’s a single concept.

The Humanity of the Web: Reflections of a Social Computing Evangelist

Luis Suarez

A little while ago Courtney Hunt , from the talented Denovati Group , reached out to me through Twitter, and then LinkedIn, to ask me whether I would like to contribute to a book project they are working on to go and celebrate the World Wide Web’s Coming of Age , since this year, 2014, we all, collectively , celebrate its 25th anniversary. Fast forward to 2014 and today I wouldn’t be able to get by without the World Wide Web. And so I became a Social Computing Evangelist.

Social Media Goals

Clark Quinn

I spent yesterday touring the Web 2.0 expo (part of the time with fellow miscreant Jay Cross ), and it led me to think a bit more about social media tools and approaches. We were prompted to visit Blue Kiwi , which is probably the leading European social media platform. Vignette , on the other hand, started as a CMS for KM, but then added social media around it. And, of course, there’s now Sharepoint’s integration of social tools around resources.
