L2A Links for January 11th

  • Technology Review: Market Watch: Convergence Is King – On in a series of articles Tech Review has on "The Future of Media". Convergence marches on. A great summary quote from the article: "The key technical characteristic of what works is the ability to facilitate consumers' desire to read, watch, or listen to any content they want, anywhere, anytime."
  • Invent Your Own Computer Games with Python – An educational diversion for the budding computer programmers in your family!

L2A Links for March 16th

  • Workplace Learning Professionals Next Job – Management Consultant : eLearning Technology – Tony Karrer pulls together thoughts and responses to the question of what workplace learning will look like in 10 years. I agree that the work will move to "management consultant" (though I would have selected "performance consultant"). But I don't agree there will be continued need for "Enterprise 2.0" and "Knowledge Management". I think those ideas will become as much of an anachronisms as "desktop publishing"or "information technologies" as the tools become as much a part of the way we work as phones, electricity of language. Less and less formalized learning will be needed and the real role of learning professionals will be in process improvement consulting.
  • Newspapers and Thinking the Unthinkable « Clay Shirky – The always enlightening Clay Shirky chimes in with a meandering piece that finally resolves into the very wise observation that we should not be trying to figure out how to save newspapers, we should be trying to figure out how to save journalism.

Learn to Adapt Links for December 2nd through December 3rd

  • The Partnership for 21st Century Skills – Home – For the K-12 set: A wonderful site advocating the improvement of our education system to include 21st-century skills. From the site: "The Partnership for 21st Century Skills has developed a unified, collective vision for 21st century learning that can be used to strengthen American education." They hit the nail on the head by stressing Creativity and Innovation Skills; Critical Thinking and Problem Solving Skills, and Communication and Collaboration Skills.
  • Moving towards the 2.0 “movie-going” experience – Ian Da Silva poses a thoughtful question about the future of movie distribution. This parallels many of the "converged" purchase models that I have discussed with my media clients. It will be interesting to see how long it is before you purchase your ticket at a theater and are given the option to pay an extra fee to download the video when it is released online…

Learn to Adapt bookmarks for April 22nd through April 23rd

These are my links for April 22nd through April 23rd:

  • Blog Learning : eLearning Technology – Tony's take on the power of blogs as a learning tool. True for established bloggers with the time/incentive to blog and who build up a network of cohorts. But for the average Joe's blogs give reflection opportunities – valuable, but not unigue to blogs.
  • Web 2.0 Expo Preview: Torture by Information Overload – This comes up more and more in the questions at the events I deliver. People are increasingly concerned about the productivity impacts of Web 2.0 platforms. If your employee Twitters all day, does her performance improve?
  • Whitepapers – Building a collaborative workplace – Anecdote lays out a series of steps for developing your organization's collaboration capability and includes a simple test of your current collaboration capability.
  • The Future of Technology: Total Convergence and the “Media Explosion” – Interesting bit of crystal ball gazing about how we will consume media in the future. Lots of interesting extrapolation possibilities about how we may consume knowledge and learning as well!
