Hi all, I just discovered "Learning". Wondering if I can discover why the subtitle says in organizations rather than having called the community learning & sharing which would imply with others in organizations or otherwise (more often more fruitful ;-)

I have many alteregos, I find that handy. Just go to my profile profBury for more about.me

Hi All, I'm very pleased to have found this group and I look forward to learning with you. (Among other things) I am a consultant with state education agencies in a variety of states in the US. One of my passions is creating learning communities that help early childhood educators learn to use digital video to have better results with children and their families. Please visit one of our open content sites, Colorado's Results Matter Digital Video Library.

Hi there, I've been working in public libraries for the past 12 years and am just moving to an academic library as a subject librarian. Part of my role has been (and will be) teaching people how to use information resources. I'm particularly keen to build my skills in creating and delivering online tutorials. More personally, I'm interested in how I can apply more effective strategies to my own learning.

Howdy. I'm a Learning & Development Training Manager for Bernalillo County Government in Albuquerque, NM. I'm working on a few projects about eduction, training management initiatives, and run two training centers with curriculums for a 3000 person organization. I've worked in Technology, Fortune 100, Industrial Trade, Commercial Real Estate, Fashion Retail, and Education Industries. 

I'm working to take Human Resource Organizational Lessons to a broader audience. I'm also working on research for a personality type model based on cognition. I'm an avid training and business book reader, and enjoy podcasting.

I've starting another fledgling community forum with published authors, entrepreneurial trainers, and marketing experts in the L&D area. I'm always looking for books to review, people to chat with, and those interested in training tools, techniques, models, and methods. 

Want to know more? My website is linked.  

Thanks for the community +Jay Cross!

Está a ser fácil aprender línguas estrangeiras.
Quanto é que custa um curso de língua russo em Lisboa?
A língua inglesa está a perder a importância. Refiro-me à conversação, está claro. Na tecnologia, mantém-se a língua inglesa como padrão.
Nesta comunidade, gosto de conhecer alguém que me possa ajudar a partilhar algo relacionado com novas aprendizagens.
Seja de que espécie forem.

Hi +Batista Alexandre , is English really losing importance? To the benefit of which other language(s)? For now I keep to my 6 languages and when I can't read a contribution due to language, I just click #translate  below the contribution (that is in Chrome)

Hello everyone! I'm all about helping people find ways to be more collaborative, creative, and ultimately successful. I think informal learning is key and am excited to be a part of this community. Thank you Jay for starting this. I've followed your work, and that of the whole Internet Time Alliance, for a long time and now so it's great to have a place to engage with so many brilliant people. Looking forward to the discussions!

OK, time to de-cloak. I made the move from 'traditional' eLearning (I love that in such a short period of time it can be called traditional) into a place where we're trying to drop all the prefixes and focus simply on learning. Now I work on landing toolsets - virtual classrooms, epss, screen capture, social and collaborative - so that I can maybe, like +Mike Collins , start to affect mindsets. I'm in here to join the struggle to find ways to work smarter and examples of how this 21st century learning can be articulated so that I can influence within my organisation and the value of this shift that we are part of can be seen and demonstrated. I remember a few years ago when I was at Learning Technologies and I think +Jay Cross was the keynote speaker, Itiel Dror talked about how the word Technology was bigger than Learning in their logo and how that was wrong - I agree - so believe me, whatever technology I bring into my organisation it's always about the learning bit.

You're so right jay, +Luis Suarez has been very vocal on the vendor issue recently and it's a point of concern, none of the stuff we know that needs to happen so that we can all share more, be more open and change things for the better can happen just because we have a tool. I came into eLearning just as rapid tools were coming of age and the eLearning content vendors were up in arms - people couldn't just make eLearning because they had a tool. They were right and they were wrong and, to their credit the ones who survived did so because they evolve - they changed at a cultural level. Well, informal and social mean an even bigger change and one that will change us all, for good. Glad be along for the ride, as Luis would say.
