L&D professionals should focus on ‘embedded learning’, focused on performance, to increase employee engagement, L&D expert Charles Jennings said.

A great point - enable learning "at the point of need" when employees come up against a problem or something they do not remember.

Charles Jennings talks about social or experiential learning but don't you think there is a need for a mix of formal and informal e.g. work aids or short videos as well as access to a community of colleagues for advice?

Joining the dots by +Steve Wheeler 

Great post, Steve, and love the image; that's a great find! 

Summary: 'Time and again I've heard stories from teachers of extraordinary things students have created because they have been given freedom to do so. There was general excitement in the school, because the students had been offered the chance to show off their skills, and demonstrate their knowledge. The sense of achievement you can feel once you have created something you can be proud of, is usually reward enough.'

Key quote: "So here's hoping that more schools decide to invest in this approach and provide makerspaces for their students, creative opportunities for them to show what they can do, and environments in which they can try out new ideas without risk of penalty."

Fabulous article on a 'syndrome' that is plaguing many of the kids we teach.  I love  +Jaime Casap's idea to encourage kids to cure LES by "creating unreasonable and impossibly high expectations of yourself " 
Editor’s Note: ‘Tis the trendy season for trends, to reflect on 2014 and to make bold predictions about what next year may hold. This year, we asked thought leaders to share their outlooks on education, but with a twist. They have to frame their thoughts as a response to some of the finest college a

A great article discussing the 'myth' of Learning Styles.  Do you agree with these thoughts? Or do you think the concept of Learning Styles is important to take into account?
The myth of preferred learning styles states that people learn better when they are taught in a way that matches their preferred style. Yet there is little evidence to support this claim, and plenty of reason to doubt it.

About this community

This is a place to discuss how people learn to improve their work in the 21st century. I expect we'll talk about social learning, sims, Pull, self-directed, customers, crowdsourcing, complexity, performance support, story-telling, collaboration, internships, reaching the extended enterprise, the convergence of work and learning, the changing nature of knowledge, complexity, and more. This is not the place to post ads for services and courses that have nothing to do with learning in organizations. We will delete them.

Moving from ME to WE #noemail

Heads up thought leaders, change agents, social catalysts, digital strategists, enterprise experts - here's Friday's top tip: spend 30 minutes reviewing this insightful conversation in which +Luis Suarez​​ and +Claire Burge​​ discuss how to help organisations make significant transformations in culture and individual behaviour by focusing on the role email should (not) play within the workplace.

Within the discussion Luis and Claire share their own top three issues with email; the key points included:

1. Email creates a dumber workforce; the system is making us stupid. 03:02
2. Email is a very selfish tool; it's not centred around the team. 05:01
3. Email doesn't actually help people to focus on getting work done. 07:19
4. The heavy reliance on email for communication and project work is a disaster waiting to happen. 09:15
5. Email should not be a system used to manager employees as restricted the desire to share knowledge. 10:46
6. Email is no longer a productivity tool in the 21st century; work today is multi-dimensional. 12:41

And a question to ponder:

How reliant is your organisation on email and what impact is it having on overall productivity?

~~
You can also keep abreast of upcoming events by following the #noemail tag here and on Twitter. Thanks to both Luis and Claire for sharing such compelling reasons for organisations to focus on the terror that is the corporate inbox.

Learning How To Learn - An Overview of the Feldenkrais Method

"Rather than "fixing" the body, Moshe Feldenkrais taught how to expand its capacities and ranges of choice.  "I am going to be your last teacher. Not because I'll be the greatest teacher you may ever encounter, but because from me you will learn how to learn. When you learn how to learn, you will realize that there are no teachers, that there are only people learning and people learning how to facilitate learning." With those words Moshe Feldenkrais began his first North American training in June 1975. None of us were really prepared for this remarkable man or his method."

Book Review: Developing Human Capital, by Gene Pease, Bonnie Beresford, and Lew Walker +The eLearning Guild

There is little doubt that, in order to play a strategic part in the future, learning and development (L&D) must measure results in terms of business benefit, and optimize those results. This means dealing in “big data” and going beyond ROI measures. Here is a step-by-step guide for L&D managers and executives. http://bit.ly/1EJlyqC

An interesting post and conversation about the importance of movement in learning...

Great post - totally agree that way too much time in the classroom is spent sitting down.
