Learning and KM: Separated at birth?

Jay Cross

If you’re into meta-learning, you should track what’s going on there. Corporate learning and KM are both about getting the job done.

2009 Predictions How Did I Do?

Tony Karrer

1 - "Self-Directed Learning" Increases Due to economic pressures, companies are going to reduce training budgets to a point where it doesn't make sense to create content on marginal topics. Instead, we will call this "self-directed learning" and will do our best to support the workforce to learn it on their own with minimal guidance and support. But the reality was more than that as I explored in posts like Business of Learning and Models for Learning Questions.

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I wrote the other day that the study released by George Siemens and others on the history and current state of distance, blended, and online learning was a bad study. His part of the world is the dual environments of Athabasca University and the University of Texas at Arlington, and he is attempting to put together major research efforts around MOOCs and learning analytics.

Tony Karrer

When I say that, keep in mind that 90% of what workplace learning is all about will be basically unchanged this year. But when I do these predictions, I focus on the stuff that’s part of the bigger trends and the potential that these trends have for impacting workplace learning professionals especially around the impact that technology will have. During 2010, this will actually have much more impact outside of learning solutions and particularly workplace learning solutions.

This is true in the application of technology for learning. As people developed technologies to support learning, they often recreated these same structures in their software. Use that as part of the learning.

Long Live?

Tony Karrer

Just got through reading - Long Live Instructor-Led Learning - by Saul Carliner, who is a person I know, like and respect.
