Links to Jane Hart's articles and presentations on how we are learning differently with the Social Web and how both education and organisations need to re-think their approaches to helping people learn.
From the results of the Learning in the Workplace survey and my analysis of how smart workers use social media to work and learn today, 5 key characteristics of how Knowledge Workers like to learn at work have emerged. You can find them summarised here.
The Learning in the Workplace Survey has now been taken by over 600 people, and although it is still open if you want to cast your vote, I am releasing some interim findings HERE today as the pattern of results has been pretty stable for some time now.
Following my earlier post: ABC: 10 reasons not to create a course – and 10 other options, I have had a huge amount of interest in finding out more about the different ABC (Anything But Courses) options I mentioned. So in this post I am going to talk about a simple – and low-cost – training model that I recommend whenever there is a requirement for workers to demonstrate they have “learned” (that is read and understood) some content, and can apply it in the workplace. Read about it here.
My annual Top 100 Tools for Learning list has become a popular resource - if the Slideshare viewing stats are anything to go by. For instance the 2011 presentation has now been viewed over 800,000 times, and the 2012 has been viewed nearly 400,000 times. So since the New Year I have been working on a major new, supplementary resource, A Practical Guide to the Top 100 Tools for Learning.
This Guide describes the essential features of each of the 100 tools and explains how they can be used for personal productivity, professional learning and development, education and training, as well as for workforce collaboration.
The Guide is available both as continuously updated online resource and as a 342 page PDF to download.
For a small charge, an annual subscription to the Guide will let you:
access the online version of the Guide for one year
download all PDF versions of the Guide during the annual subscription period for your own personal use. This comprises:
The beta edition - available NOW
The first edition - available in June 2013.
The second edition - available in October/November 2013 once the 2013 Top Tools list has been released.
