New Technology Supporting Informal Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Abstract We often talk about games, simulations and other events in learning, but these technologies support only episodic learning. Equally important are those technologies that provide a context for these learning episodes, an environment where students and interact and converse among themselves. Context Online learning today is beginning to be dominated by developments in games, simulations and related technologies. Implementing the Seven Principles: Technology as Lever.

Etiquette for sharing

Harold Jarche

Twitter is full of links to other websites. For a long time you needed to use URL shorteners to ensure you stayed within Twitter’s 140 character limit. Now Twitter has its own URL shortener – t.co – that converts every link that is shared.

Reframing the news

Doc Searls

Twitter isn’t it. Yes, these days it’s pro forma for news media to post notifications of stories and other editorial on Twitter, but Twitter is a closed and silo’d corporation, not an institutional convention on the order of the front page, the editorial page, the section, the insert. Most of all, Twitter is somebody else’s system. But Twitter does normalize a model that Dave Winer called a river , long before Twitter existed.

Tools for Independence

Doc Searls

Kind of like lists in Twitter. Facebook, LInkedIn, Google+ and Twitter are all good at what they do, but they are neither necessary nor sufficient as infrastructural elements supporting personal independence and real social interaction, like the kind we’ve always had offline, and in marketplaces since the days of Ur. There are other tools, protocols and technologies as well, but I’ll stop naming my own votes here. So I signed up for Google+.

Informal Learning Technology

This is the same technology that is behind eLearning Learning and Communities and Networks Connection.

Reusable Learning Resources The initial development of online learning technology began at scale with the development of the learning management system (LMS) in the mid-1990s. Technological systems based on these designs were first developed by the aviation industry, in the form of the AICC specification (Aviation Industry Computer Based Training (CBT) Committee). Additional technologies to support resource discovery and reuse have been developed since then.

Activating Latent Knowledge Capacity

George Siemens

social media, participative technologies, it’s not unreasonable to state that at least a segment of society today recognizes information as multi-authored, participative, distributed, and networked. Facebook plays a similar integrative role for participative technologies. Between flickr, del.icio.us, blogs, RSS readers, and wikis, we were living the distributed, networked, learning dream. My social network used to consist of the people in my RSS reader.
