Transcript – January 5, 2017: Technology Potpourri

#lrnchat is an online chat over the social messaging service Twitter. It is held on Thursdays at 8:30-9:30pm ET/5:30-6:30pm PT. Participants are people interested in the topic of learning from one another and who want to discuss how to help other people learn in formal, informal, social and mobile ways. We aim to steer clear of topics that are more “training department” oriented and focus on how people learn, what they learn, and what we’re learning.  If you an idea for a topic that you would like to suggest for #lrnchat, please feel free to reach out to any of the Chat Hosts.

duchampian    A1) collecting learner/user data can provide rather complex understanding of what we know
ShannonRenee    A1 Data is great. It provides quantitative info to qualitative assumptions. My concern is when folks take data as Gospel. #LrnChat
rabbitoreg    A1) DATA should be transparent and open to all. Not an IT project
spotlessmind82    A1) It depends if DATA is being used for good or evil. It comes down to balance
kregerck    A1)Data is a huge topic for libraries right now. Colorado started a national conference for library staff. https://ripl.lrs.org/  #lrnchat

ClintClarkson    Anyone else watching the World Junior Hocky Championship and Lrnchatting at the same time? #lrnchat
HowTheGov    A1) Opportunity for data scientist roles in training.  #lrnchat (Not that that’s what I do.)
kelly_smith01    A1) There are more data gathering tools which can work in real time & dashboard the data 4 easy access #lrnchat
ekuniyoshi    A1) Personalized learning paths based on real-time data.  #lrnchat

The_NthDegree    A2 Video has plenty of future in learning
dcleesfo    A2) Video is the future of communication.  Learning will have to adapt to it.  Scares me a bit because I’m not video literate. #lrnchat https://twitter.com/lrnchat/status/817184712414347265 …  QUOTE TWEET                      lrnchat @lrnchat                          Q2) How do you see VIDEO impacting learning in the coming year? What are the opportunities and/or risks? #lrnchat
vidyakumar    A1) Opportunities: The stories that can data tell us about how people learn. #lrnchat

ekuniyoshi    RT @lrnchat Q2) How do you see VIDEO impacting learning in the coming year? What are the opportunities and/or risks? #lrnchat
rjpanetti    q1)fascinated w/ #dataviz possibilities for learning. Telling stories with data will be an important skill set for #lrnchat professionals
duchampian    A2) I was looking at @JaneBozarth #Pinterest first day walk through today and thought
Tracy_Parish    So much video is produced off of phones this is now true.  So yes anyone can produce a pretty great little vid. #lrnchat https://twitter.com/eLearninCyclops/status/817185362711891973 …  QUOTE TWEET                      Jeff Goldman @eLearninCyclops                          Q2) Luckily

duchampian    A2) I want videos to be even shorter in 2017. I want chapters of videos. #lrnchat
Voced_au    A2) most learning videos I see are so boring I just scroll to the few seconds I need.  Video is only as good as how it is presented #lrnchat
LnDDave    Q2) Creating video has become much more accessible in the smartphone era
ChadSLowry      Replying to @urbie
jyoti__gupta    a2) Can’t think of a way that video would do something different unless a voice-to-video AI ed device that becomes available #lrnchat
urbie    #lrnchat A1a We’ll become [even more] enamored by what big data tells us w/o actually asking human beings to share their thoughts..
ShannonRenee    A2 Opportunities abound for quality video that adds value to our lives. #LrnChat
The_NthDegree    A2 There’s some fair opportunity for video to expand more from students than teachers – social learning #lrnchat
Tracy_Parish    As long as the videos have a purpose and meaning.  Listening to someone for the sake of broadcasting themselves not great. #lrnchat
spotlessmind82    A2) I was a film major
vidyakumar    A2) Video is great
eLearninCyclops    Q2) If only my SMEs could act 😉 #lrnchat
urbie    #lrnchat A1b Opportunity? To save tons of money by doing the data gathering electronically. Risk? Disaffecting learners a little more..
eLearninCyclops      Replying to @vidyakumar

lrnchat    Q3) How do you see MICRO LEARNING impacting learning in the coming year? What are the opportunities and/or risks? #lrnchat
kelly_smith01    a2) With video you can show your work – and archive your work #lrnchat

rabbitoreg    A3) I don’t have the patience for microlearning. #lrnchat
urbie    #lrnchat A2a Video will be less lecture and more interactive [offline]. Ex: Present new stuff + contextual story + do this offline & share..
ChadSLowry    A3) Really hoping 2017 is the year people come to accept that microlearning is a performance support tool. #lrnchat
LnDDave    A2) video is also becoming increasingly interactive
eLearninCyclops      Replying to @Tracy_Parish
jyoti__gupta    a3) Microlearning risk: reinforcing the notion that complexity is “”bad””. Turns complex topics into elite ones.  #lrnchat
rjpanetti    Imagine #xapi fully integrated with a talent develop and #Tableau to really look at the data #lrnchat
CynnamonStelly    A3) Micro learning can create a more “”laser focus”” attitude on a particular area for a learner.  #lrnchat
urbie    #lrnchat A2b Opportunities? Make learning more engaging and assessment much more authentic. Risk? It looks too different that the usual..
The_NthDegree    A3 The concept of bite-sized chunks is likely going to increase as attention spans move in the opposite direction… #lrnchat
mizminh    Q2 Video as a Performance of Understanding -yes. Just establish appropriate standards and skill development in video techniques #lrnchat
dcleesfo    A3) Mircrolearning is a format that is being over sold as a technology.  Right format
kelly_smith01    Q2) Risk: Video may induce an overabundance of “”TED-like”” talks – read people on your own #lrnchat
ClintClarkson    A3) Feels like more  businesses are open to microLearning. Like there’s finally acceptance for not attaching the fire hose. #lrnchat pic.twitter.com/FJXfDWzWpU

rabbitoreg    A3) Microlearning is NOT the first step to make boring learning engaging just by cutting the length. #lrnchat
The_NthDegree    A3 the other micro-learning m2m is likely to get bigger of course! That’s where the machines learn from each other 🙂 #lrnchat
ShannonRenee    A3 My concern for microlearning is the lack of depth for the subject matter. #LrnChat
vidyakumar    A3) Microlearning is misunderstood
duchampian    A3) Maybe we can start talking about #microlearning in the context of a larger learning strategy. Not like a buzzword bandaid. #lrnchat
MMTingley    Q2) I keep wanting to use video like a podcast
rabbitoreg    A3) Let me ask Alexa. Alexa

The_NthDegree    A4 I think we’ll see a lot more VR… though I’ve got to think the potential for learning in AR is higher… speed of production… #lrnchat
rabbitoreg    A4) Not much in 2017. Still too expansive to scale with real good content. Unless you do outofthebox. Mixed reality
ekuniyoshi    RT @lrnchat Q4) How do you see VR impacting learning in the coming year? What are the opportunities and/or risks? #lrnchat
MMTingley    Q4) who has the budget for VR?  #lrnchat
urbie    #lrnchat A3a Microlearning lends itself quite well to what @DrJessupS describes. Where learners produce their own media to demo they get it
dcleesfo    A4) I think VR (and AR) will have some great breakthrough case studies
jyoti__gupta    a4) Until the cost of VR development comes down
ChadSLowry    A4) I think VR needs to catch onto a wider audience (device adoption is too low) before we can leverage it for learning. #lrnchat
rjpanetti    A3) Big opportunity for developing microlearning but its in enabling SMEs to develop the content. #TeachThemToFish #lrnchat

CynnamonStelly    A4) VR risk – sensory overload but nothing was loaded into the brain for learning. #lrnchat
vidyakumar    A4) VR: Lots of (expensive) technology to get your head around. A slower-moving bandwagon than others. #lrnchat

JD_Dillon    Hey kids! Popping into #lrnchat late. I’ll blame the timezone change + snow.
rjpanetti    A4) New tech makes an impact in learning when people begin using it at home. Users expect it
ActivateLearn    For any VR related information
The_NthDegree    A5 if we fail to use SoMe I think we’re really missing v easy opportunities to improve learning
jyoti__gupta    a5) It could have a big impact but there is no avatar-based
HowTheGov    A5) A lot more people are using SoMe more consistently everyday. Just need to guide use more in learning. #lrnchat
ShannonRenee    A5 Social is great for learning. Take #LrnChat for instance
LnDDave    A5) As long as social media allows me to better connect with people
urbie    #lrnchat A4x I’ve tried VR on my drones. It can be.. disconcerting & vertigo inducing. I need a spotter to actually do the flying
CynnamonStelly    A5) I think social media is great for certain learning environments
ActivateLearn    A5) I hope to see more bc there are so many opportunities & in my experience
JD_Dillon    A5) Continued slow growth
Tracy_Parish    I wish someone would focus on SoMe because it is learning tool rather than what $ they can make from it. #lrnchat

dcleesfo    A6)  I’m very curious to see learning reaction to curation.  I think there is going to be resistance to learner-curation.  #lrnchat https://twitter.com/lrnchat/status/817190720700301312 …  QUOTE TWEET                      lrnchat @lrnchat                          Q6) How do you see CURATION impacting learning in the coming year?

LnDDave    A5) A big risk of social media as it relates to learning are people that share before they read
JD_Dillon    A6) Risk: assuming collection is the same thing/value as curation #lrnchat
rabbitoreg    A6) Curation is an interesting thing. Much less exciting for creative people. But much more useful. #lrnchat
jyoti__gupta    a6) The best use of curation
urbie    #lrnchat A5c Risk: Its durable & doesn’t go away [easily]. It can take on a life all its own if not moderated/curated..
ActivateLearn    YES! I can’t tell you amount of times I’ve been asked to teach SoMe use for marketing purposes – not learning.

CynnamonStelly    A6) Curation: hopefully a lot. I think its a good way for a learner to develop a “”burning”” desire for learning. #lrnchat
ShannonRenee    A6 Curation can be a powerful tool. It can make new & valueable info available & accessible to new audiences. #LrnChat
The_NthDegree    A6 Curation risks r around the growing popular opinion growing more weight than good opinion.’Fact’ by numbers; can stifle innvtion #lrnchat
rjpanetti    A6) Curation is the new ADDIE… meaning it really should be a core skill for all #lrnchat pros. They should teach it in grad school
Voced_au    A5) the problem I have with social media for learning is the accuracy and quality of info that the learner gets.  #lrnchat
JD_Dillon    A6) Benefit: helping people find relevance and value in the maze of organizational knowledge #lrnchat
ActivateLearn    A6) need to get better at SOURCING & critiquing information – not curation. Finding that everything dates quickly now. #lrnchat
ClintClarkson    A6) Good curation… and with the intent of adding value

duchampian    A6) looking at @postbeyond in 2017 as repository with smart content creation
JD_Dillon    A6) Risk: expecting people will just curate on their own and assign appropriate value to content – without skill/motivation #lrnchat
urbie    #lrnchat A6a I’s afraid there’d be curation question. How often do we see learners [ourselves?] take notes
dcleesfo    Just because 60% like something

GoogleGuacamole       Replying to @lrnchat @urbie
urbie    #lrnchat A6b I think curation offers the possibility for creating a reference library of know-how. Dunno if it can be done by everyone..
rjpanetti    A6) We’re drowning in info. Very little of what clients want to learn is unique. Its already been figured out and put on YouTube #lrnchat
ShannonRenee    A6 Good info can come from anyone at anytime & curation can find it. It should move us away from traditional answers/solutions. #LrnChat

LnDDave    A6) A risk of curation is finding yourself in a filter bubble if your curators aren’t bringing you opportunities for growth.  #lrnchat
