Informal E-Learning

Visual Thinking Workshops at MicroAssist

MicroAssist is excited to welcome back Allison Crow of Crow Hill Conversations to our classroom! Her workshops at E-Learning Symposium were so popular that we've opened another session August 3rd! The morning will cover the basics of Visual Thinking, and the afternoon will delve deeper into involved learning and push and pull visual thinking methods. Both sessions will be held at MicroAssist - the first from 8:30 - 12:00, and the second from 1:00 - 4:30.

Supplementing your Personal Learning Network with Twitter

Twitter?  A learning tool?  Can you really learn 140 characters at a time?  

Used correctly Twitter can be a great addition to your personal learning network.   First, you've got a account setup on Twitter right?   You know the basics of Twitter right?  If not, Google "Twitter Tutorial"   or "How to use Twitter".  This video on How to use Twitter by Howcast isn't bad.

Got it?  Great.  

ELC Meeting--Learning 2.0: Technology Trends in Informal Learning

Zulfi Kureshi gave an interesting presentation on Technology Trends in Informal Learning (attached below).  I was particularly interested to see how Deloitte uses Learning 2.0 tools internally and am thinking of how I can use them in our organization. 

An example of using Learning 2.0 Technology is the ELC website runs on Drupal--a open source CMS that allows us to Blog, grab RSS feeds on a topic (News Clips), have Forums, and a shared calendar.   All this for free.  I remember when Intranets and shared knowledge sites cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
