L2A Links for January 8th

  • Six Ways to Foster Innovation in the Learning Field – Juxtaposition, Non-Traditional Thinking, Multiple Attempts, New Network Connections, Bring in Those New to the Field, and Vendors.
  • The Changing Nature of Workplace Learning – Two posts influence reflection on how workplace learning is changing. From the post: "While the former reflects the redesigning of workplace as a physical manifestation of this change with its focus on enabling communities and collaboration, the second one squarely focuses on empowering autonomous learning and facilitating the building of trusted networks."

Learn to Adapt Links for December 25th through December 30th

  • Time to Reboot America – NYTimes.com – Thomas Friedman hits the nail on the head: “My fellow Americans, we can’t continue in this mode of “Dumb as we wanna be.” We’ve indulged ourselves for too long with tax cuts that we can’t afford, bailouts of auto companies that have become giant wealth-destruction machines, energy prices that do not encourage investment in 21st-century renewable power systems or efficient cars, public schools with no national standards to prevent illiterates from graduating and immigration policies that have our colleges educating the world’s best scientists and engineers and then, when these foreigners graduate, instead of stapling green cards to their diplomas, we order them to go home and start companies to compete against ours.”
  • Google, WalMart, and MyBarackObama.com: The Power of the Real Time Enterprise – O’Reilly Radar – A great post from Tim gets back to what “Web 2.0” is truly about (networked products that explicitly leverage network effects). Lately the “2.0” sticker is getting attached to many things that aren’t really increasing value of the network.
  • Adult Learning Styles – A great summary of the three major theories on different learning styles. Good to keep in mind during learning design. But remember that supporters of the universal design for learning (UDL) believes ideal curriculum design makes learning styles a moot point.
  • Content Sites Bracing For 50% Revenue Slowdown – Ouch. Perhaps it is time to revisit the “freemium” model?
  • When People Don’t Want to Change – Marshall Goldsmith – The great Marshall Goldsmith with a brief post about not wasting time on people who do not want to change. To help those people who do want to change, check out the Progressing Through Change tool at: http://csolved.com/ptc/
  • Innovating in the Great Disruption – Scott Anthony – Scott Anthony provides interesting ideas on keeping your innovative edge in this era of constant change.
  • Knewton Takes Adaptive Learning To The Next Level

  • Set in Our Ways: Why Change Is So Hard: Scientific American – A great article from Scientific American on the biology/psychology of why people are naturally resistant to change. Interestingly, it claims people are more tolerant of change during their 20s and then again after 60.
  • Pew Internet: Future of the Internet – Pew Internet research releases the results of its survey on the future of the Internet. Much as expected, with the exception of one finding that surprised me: "The transparency of people and organizations will increase, but that will not necessarily yield more personal integrity, social tolerance, or forgiveness." I think we may see more tolerance overall as everyone moves to "wearing a transparent kimono."

  • Ask Nature – the Biomimicry Design Portal: biomimetics, architecture, biology, innovation inspired by nature – As a biologist by training, I constantly see ways in which effective business systems mimic biological systems. This looks like a wonderful site for inspiration. From the site: "That's the idea behind AskNature, the online inspiration source for the biomimicry community. Think of it as your home habitat—whether you're a biologist who wants to share what you know about an amazing organism, or a designer, architect, engineer, or chemist looking for planet-friendly solutions. AskNature is where biology and design cross-pollinate, so bio-inspired breakthroughs can be born."
  • learningscience.org – A topic near and dear to my heart. And based on the latest international test results, we need it now more than ever…

Learn to Adapt Links for November 18th

  • Voice in Google Mobile App: A Tipping Point for the Web? – O’Reilly Radar – Tim adds thoughts to the building evidence that the Web (which should now really be considered the Cloud) is going mobile. The iPhone has freed our interface design limitations and the Cloud content and services will continue to become more accessible on all devices as we incorporate a more device agnostic philosophy to our product development.
  • Are Our Technologies at War with Each Other? – Andrew McAfee – Andrew weighs in on the debate Venkat and I started on his original post and my response, both of which got reposted by Social Computing Magazine. (Had I know the debate was going to get such attention I wouldn’t have shot so passionately from my hip ;o)

  • TogetherLearn – From the site: "togetherlearn is a turn-key platform where knowledge workers can collaborate, solve problems, converse, share ideas, brainstorm, learn, bond, talk, explain, communicate, conceptualize, tell stories, help one another, teach, serve customers, clue in partners, keep up to date, meet, flirt, shout, forge partnerships, build communities, and distribute information."
  • A Critical Choice Regarding Innovation – O’Reilly Radar – Good post from Tim O'Reilly regarding innovation and the drivers behind it. It reminds us that collective intelligence is strong in problem solving and knowledge gathering, but there are other drivers at work behind successful innovation
  • Enterprise 2.0: Identify Problem, Find Solution, Then Tools | SocialComputingMagazine.com – Stephen Collins (who I had the great pleasure of teaming with to deliver Web 2.0 learning in Australia) posts an insightful entry on how technology is only the enabler for successful Enterprise 2.0: "Enterprise 2.0 is about the tools least of all – it's principally about people and organisations, the cultures within and among them…"

  • Web 2.0 Summit on blip.tv – Who needs to shell out the big bucks to attend when you can watch for free? This year's focus promises to expand beyond typical Web 2.0 focus to start looking at how technology can solve real world problems (i.e., how blogging will end world hunger ;o)
  • eLearning Learning – Tony Karrer put together a great feed aggregation site that pulls together e-learning blog posts from across the Web.
