    Conversation as a way of learning 

    If you like me are on your way to Orlando for #LSCon, then you may want to look up my session 513 on Conversational Learning.

    For someone to learn there has to be a behaviour change or a new behaviour to be learned (Freud and Yeun). Social media tools are not all cutting it to deliver the correct level of conversation to make these changes. They are merely a carrier for information. How can we change this?

    This session will explore what a conversation is, how we learn from it, the four dimensions of the way we use conversation in learning and some example of a real live conversation inside an electronic learning course using IVR systems from Phone2Know, http://www.phone2know.com

    Come and find out what we need to do to get conversation back on the table and let’s stop fooling ourselves that all social media tools are a way of learning.

    Come to session 513, let’s talk!

      I wish I were attending #LSCon. I got so much out of your sessions at #DevLearn last year. Best of luck, and know that your work is inspiring others!

      Hi BJ! I’m actually ptirenseng on Twitter at DL08, although now I’m a bit intimidated by all the folks who use it so extensively. I’m used to an audience that is new to it. Ah well this just means less ptirenseng and more discussing! My Twitter ID is writetechnology.Can’t wait to meet everyone!

    i2 Incapabilty Index 

    A discussion paper I have released today suggests a method to replace ROI in learning with i2, Incapability Index.

    Link your training spend to the performance and profitability of the company without any intangibles at all.

    Learning Styles for the modern learner 

    I read a post on my Facebook that asked why were so many were mentioning their learning style on a CV here is my answer:

    My old acquaintance Peter Honey and his partner Dr Alan Mumford came up with learning styles, 4 of them, many years ago. Peter retired on it!

    Now what people miss today is that with the new innovation of
    technology in learning those 4 basic styles of learning have expanded to so many different, varied and diverse styles which we all design for ourselves.

    Therefore trying to cater for any and every known and unknown style is an impossibility. So we create generic to cope with all we know. To cope with more we are required to create learning containing many choices. From these choices people will choose their own path to suit their learning style ‘ in the moment’.

    More important to me is a trainer’s ‘training style’ do you know yours?

    Those who mention learning style on CV think they are being cool, showing something new. For me they are passé and in the past.
