L2A Links for July 23rd

  • How We Use Social Media for Informal Learning – From the article: "For every sales pitch you hear about social learning, for every shiny social network logo you see out there on the web, you should be looking for real use cases and stories of social media being used in a real world setting…"
  • Ed-Tech Cheat Sheet – Nice reference info graphic (wish they had produced it as a two-page PDF…)

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…
