We got to be part of TEDxPhilly as a sponsor at the end of last year. It was a great event and some amazing speakers from Philadelphia. Check out my favorite below:
Watch my favorite closing preso at #DL10 on Getting Serious about Games & Learning by Richard Culatta
Highly recommend watching this video. Richard did an amazing job on style, pacing and content!
If you need to be inspired, watch the Steve Jobs’ 2005 commencement address at Stanford.Love what you do, don’t settle. If today were the last day of your life, would you want to do what you are doing today? Stay hungry, stay foolish.
Looking for a powerful way to use twitter and learning, check out #lrnchat. A place for people interested in the topic of learning, to learn from one another and discuss how to help other people learn. The online chat happens every Thursday night 8:30-10pm EST / 5:30-7pm PST.
Q0 (our #lrnchat warmup): How???ve you been? What have you been learning?
Q1: Why aren???t ppl using social media & twitter-like tools in training? What myths do they have? Excuses they use? Legit reasons????Addition: My hope with Q1 is to hear both reasons why not using, and how you reply.
Q2 from @kasey428: Have you used (or seen used) social media to push out training reinforcement as follow-up to ILT or elearning?
Q3 inspired by @ichrisbarnes: Do we know of any places SoMe is bad (for learning, in training, for edu)?

Many trillions of elements, continually growing through a large number of feeds.
No. It comes from Wolfram|Alpha’s internal knowledge base. Some of the data in that knowledge base is derived from official public or private websites, but most of it is from more systematic primary sources.
Many different sources, combined and curated by the Wolfram|Alpha team. At the bottom of each relevant results page there’s a “Source information” button, which provides background sources and references.
Most of the data in Wolfram|Alpha is derived by computations, often based on multiple sources. A list of background sources and references is available via the “Source information” button at the bottom of relevant Wolfram|Alpha results pages.
In concept, perhaps Leibniz’s characteristica universalis from the late 1600s???or the science-fiction computers of the 1960s. Technologically, many pieces of Wolfram|Alpha have precursors, but the ambitious scope of the whole project is believed to be unique.
Guy Kawasaki posted The Art of the Tutorial, an article for his American Express Blog . In his article, he discusses how companies, or any web site should be able to explain their business in under 2 minutes to a new client, customer or visitor. He show cases some examples for his newer startup AllTop, which I’ve posted about before as well as the production company who designed the tutorials and has produced all 3 examples he demonstrates.
They do a great job of showing, in this case, how to cook something using still shots/photography, a voiceover and simple directions. It’s a great example of how designers, instructors and everyone involved in e-learning should take into account on how to teach our audiences. I love the treatment and its effective. This technique can be applied to any business, idea, or training, think about it when you start your next production. Would love to hear your thoughts. Web Link: http://www.startcooking.com
