Liveblog #LT15UK: Expanding your mind

Second day of the conference. We were both a bit disappointed about yesterday. But we’ve started this day with fresh energy! Our key note is Robert Winston, professor Science and Society in London. The human mind is developing so rapidly. Robert talks about: Hamlet, telescope, steam engine, portable computing, moon landing, synthetic biology. Where will we be with learning in 5 years from now? We don’t know. What happens in our brain? The brain is the most complex object in the universe. He shows a very nice video about hoe we learn: (If you are interested in more from Robert...

Liveblog: sharing (in-company) knowledge

After a bit of a disappointing session, I now hope for a very inspiring and innovative story. I have chosen this session because of my curiosity towards knowledge sharing processes (difficult to support!) and communities of practice.  This session promises to be practical in the sense that is build around one to two cases. Edward Gallier (hotel group Jurys Inn) and Kandy Woodfield… Beating the silo trap Ed’s story starts with the aim of doing the work more consistently and efficient. Therefore they developed ‘Grow online’ as the online platform for new employees. Available 24/7. And we needed the...

Liveblog from #LT15UK: Learning, Technology and the future…

By Gerd Leonhard..a leading voice and futurist on a wide range of topics including next-generation digital business models, the opportunities and challenges of a networked society, a sustainable business and cultural ecology, social media etc. His presentation is about the future of learning. And he starts with… becoming more human. We cannot beat robots and machines. Technology has a great potential, but we need to decide about the direction and about wrong or right. The new normal: velocity, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. Do we, as organisations, think enough about the past, present and future? Technology and humanity is overlapping. We are...

Hoe werkt deze puzzel? Ontwerpprincipes als kader bij online leren

Principes geven ons richting en houvast. Ze voorkomen dat we gaan zwemmen. En ze geven ons ruimte voor creativiteit en vernieuwing. Je maakt er impliciet gebruik van, normaal gesproken denk je niet zo expliciet na over je eigen principes. Het denken in principes kan echter een heel krachtige manier zijn om een ontwerp richting en vorm te geven. Zeker bij samen ontwerpen kan het een kader of leidraad bieden waar je je samen aan wilt houden. Ik las net de blog ‘Pim-Pam-Petten met ontwerpprincipes‘ van Mariel Rondeel. Prachtig hoe uit hun experiment naar voren komt dat principes bepalen hoe...
