Distributed governance of technological innovation through the case of WiBro in S. Korea.

I attended the Social Informatics Cluster meting to hear Jee Hyun Suh present on: Co evolution of an emerging mobile technology and mobile services: distributed governance of technological innovation through the case of WiBro in S. Korea. These are rough notes taken during the presentation. She presented the story of WiBro and the implications for the governance of […]

Sociability and networking

I’m currently analysing a couple of Twitter chat events aimed at learning professionals. The analysis will mainly be qualitative but to make sense of what are often a messy and chaotic events, I’m currently doing some pattern searches on the nature and functions of participants’ interactions. This image is of a social network analysis of […]

Learning Insights ….

Kineo, the e-learning company, have issued a new report on e-learning insights based on interviews with “learning leaders” to identify key emerging trends. I’m not going to repeat the report but will look at a few of their ten key insights: 1. Learning is pervasive. Learning is continuous, collaborative and connected and most learning lives outside […]

Social network: knowledge and learning at work

Here are my slides from a workshop held for the University Forum for Human Resource Development (UHRD) Social media and workplace learning & knowledge from Peter Evans My talk was followed by Amy Woodgate talking about the University of Edinburgh‘s experience with MOOCs. There is a detailed report on the University’s first round of MOOCs […]

Social learning – pervasive or choice?

@julianstodd Tweeted an older posting of his on the nature of social learning here and its importance for an organisation in terms of compliance, standardisation and ethics. A few things struck me about the post, not least, its narrow definition of social learning as being collaborative (and hence notionally equal, non-hierarchical) where learning is an emergent […]

Whether formal or informal, its the learning that counts

I liked Nick Shacklton-Jones’ post arguing that there’s no such thing as formal learning concluding that My point, I suppose, is that if you have a good understanding of how learning works, you don’t have to fabricate mythical species of learning to explain what you see. There is just learning, and the way in which it happens […]

Flock: meet, learn, teach… locally

Last Friday (28 Sept) , I went to an interesting presentation at InSpace which included a presentation from Morna Simpson, CEO of Flockedu. Flockedu aims to link teachers and adult learners for face-to-face learning with a tag line of “meet, learn, teach… locally”. The idea for the company started with a personal injury that coincided […]

LinkPool

Here we go with four links on technology in education including MIT’s Open Education Initiative: 5 Ways Tech Startups Can Disrupt the Education System: An interesting post but see link below on MITs recent initiatives on open education that undermine the notion that disruptions only come from start-ups. Incumbents can also have an imagination! MIT […]

Innovation as knowing, experience and action?

These are some very rough initial thoughts that I hope to develop over a couple of posts. Building on an earlier post on learning, creativity & innovation summarising that (a) innovation occurs through learning and (b) learning is a social/ collaborative process (and so innovation is also a collaborative process) it is clear that innovation […]

learning management system: managing what?

A great post from Jane Knight on LMS adoption – the comments are great value too. The concept of workscapes as spaces where work practices and learning practices are enmeshed I particularly like. As the Internet Time Alliance state: Work and learning have become one and the same. Networks rule. Nothing is certain. Simply doing […]
