A few finds …

A sweep of some interesting posts found elsewhere … A round up of the DevLearn 2011 conference – looks like it was a good event with lots going on – anything with Michio Kaku gets my vote anyway. I also like the buzz morning idea. A annotated reference list on collaboration and social networking from […]

Solid learning melts in to air

I’m at the start of the process of scoping a literature review of social software in workplace learning. Some of the literature on collaboration is proving interesting: Collaboration and co-creation: emphasises the social aspects of social software and Web 2.0 technologies as ESSPs (McAfee 2009) in creating collaborative learning environments that promote knowledge exchange, interpersonal […]

Tools of e-learning

I noticed this post from the Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies [CL4PT] on ten key tools for learning. There’s a very clear triangle forming of course/ content “authorware” [eg, screenr or prezi], collaboration tools [eg, etherpad or dimdim] and individual tools [eg, evernote or arguable posterour]. This highlighted a question would be how these […]

sociability of enterprises

An interesting post here from Idris Mootee on how social media can by-pass hierarchies and sources of inertia as a communications/ dialogue and collaboration channels. As he points out, its the smart companies that get this, which I take to really mean the smart managers, executives and people – afterall, it can be one thing […]

Web 2.0 in the Learning Ecosystem – link

Interesting post here from Jon Ingham on organisations’ use of web 2.0 technologies. It seems to me that the organisational focus on the efficiency gains above the transformative potential of web 2.0 points to the cultural barriers to effective implementation of enterprise 2.0 outlined here by Todd Stephens. I’d be interested to see something like […]

Learning in project teams

I’ve been thinking more about learning in projects and the infrastructure & processes to enable more effective learning and knowledge exchange and development. I see the experience of project working as the building block for ‘deep’ collaborative working. Learning in projects operates broadly on three levels: Individual: often focused on developing new skills and knowledge […]

Innovation = Learning, Creativity & Innovation

An interesting post here from Keith Sawyer confirming that (a) innovation occurs through learning and (b) learning is a social/ collaborative process (and so innovation is also a collaborative process).

Collaborative workplaces

An Australian consultancy, Anecdote, have recently published a very interesting paper on Building a Collaborative Workplace with Nancy White. There are some excellent sections, especially on what the authors call community collaboration – essentially communities of practice. The section on team collaboration was less compelling for me as seemed to duplicate generic team building rather […]

Enterprise 2.0 – it shouldn’t be about the technology

A nice post here from Stephen Dale about web 2.0 as the “blinding light of Web 2.0 hype seems to be obscuring the fact that the most important aspect in building any community (of interest or practice or whatever) is the people and NOT the technology. Though I do appear to be an increasingly isolated […]
