You're one of 1,797 members of the Learning in Organizations Community on Google Plus. 

Since its founding two years ago, our community has morphed into a place to post wisdom, schlock, and self-boosterism. Some days you get lucky and discover a gem in the flow; other days you don't find anything worth your time.

We can make a lot more out of what we've started here if we like. (We've been around longer than most Silicon start-ups.)

For example, this is a spot where you can ask questions and seek advice. Why not? Our group's intimate. We'll always be a safe place, out of the limelight, to float new trial balloons.

We can help one another find things. You might get the real skinny on a vendor, an event, or a service by talking with someone who knows them from experience. As we grow to trust one another, we will form deep relationships. Maybe. At least it wouldn't hurt to post a few questions and see what happens. 

We need not continue to be just a place to read funky articles. The network will come to life when some of us use it as a springboard and become connected by phone and skype to start changing the world together. 

We would benefit from a larger, more diverse membership. Free thinkers. People on the thin end of the Long Tail. Please promote us on your streams. 

Finally, please contribute to the community if you're good at that type of thing. You got great ideas and stories? Post them. Please share your most exciting, zany projects. You show me yours; I'll show you mine. 

By the way, I'm getting very interested in Curation. It's another way to weave information flow and discussion. I'll post a link to my curation or inquiries about informal and experiential learning.  If you're aggregating or curating L&D content, too, please share what you're finding.

If you have suggestions, post them right here. We are an open community. I'm cutting the balloons loose.

"Fractions. Smart Pirates " - popular educational app for iOS and Android devices.

App "Fractions. Smart Pirates " makes learning fractions fun with lots of colourful Caribbean Pirates. Its concept is really easy for children understand and doesn't present anything too complex.

"Fractions. Smart Pirates " is a great tool for teachers and parents who are looking to give children an app for practicing a variety of fractions skills. "Fractions.

With the current progress rate of #education, it would not be before 2080s that every child gets an opportunity to attend a primary school. If it still does not raise your concern, then read on...
If the people thought this is a syndrome infecting the lives of a large population, there must be calls for urgent remedies. But, the deliberate, menacing deterioration of literacy, unawareness and detachment continues decade after decade.

Since at high school level #education seeks greater participation it's better that greater focus remains on the learning. Student can earn decent with part time works to fund their higher studies.

My article this week focuses on the use of quizzes in E-learning course and you can access it here http://www.e-learningeducators.com/quizzes-in-e-learning-courses/

But here is another tip for using quizzes.  Quizzes create engagement right and can be very shareable.  So why don’t you try and create a quiz as a marketing tool or a blog post to promote your e-learning course.  My experience shows that a quiz as a blog post increases the length of time visitors stay on the page and engage with the content
Quizzes in E-learning courses: Find out how, where and why should a quiz be used in an e-learning course?

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.

"The best educational apps to kick start learning this summer"
 
"Fractions. Smart Pirate"  #Android

Fractions aren’t the easiest area of maths to get to grips with. This app makes learning fractions fun with lots of colourful Caribbean Pirates. Its concept is also really easy for children understand and doesn’t present anything too complex. Definitely worth purchasing!
