The World We Explore-- Sir Ken Robinson, Educator. Curiosity encourages us to push boundaries into uncharted territories. Where can our hunger for discovery ...
Andreas Kuswara's insight:

in Google Zeitgeist. Sir Ken Robinson didn't actually talk about WPL, but about creativity and the education system; technology has one way or another contributed to make our society become as it is, for better and worst; but it also has the potential to transform the education into a more personalized experience. 

 

wander how it can be done so effectively and creatively in workplace learning.

How Santa Deals with Change in the Workplace

How Santa Deals with Change in the Workplace | Innovation in WPL | Scoop.it
Andreas Kuswara's insight:

no wander Santa's hair all turn white, wait until he has to deal with elves union, raindeer union and carbon tax for setting up factory right in the middle of north pole. he probably is the biggest contributor to ice berg melting.

 

but, workplaces are changing aren't they? although the article doesn't say about how Santa educate and train his next generation elves and raindeer in this ever changing workplace; but education and training is a means for us to "deal" with these changes as much as adjusting managerial policy and good leadership.

Gamification in Workplace Learning

Gamification in Workplace Learning | Innovation in WPL | Scoop.it

Does gamification has a meaningful place in WPL?

 

IMHO The author rightly made a point when warning not to do gamification for the sake of gamification.

 

Although it might promote healthy competition and afford teachers to provide a “stim-pack” (it’s a language used to describe a steroid in MMO games) for their students to stay engaged in the learning process; but I don’t think it will always give the same impact. Different groups will view such competition differently, and just like any medical steroid, the effect wares off as the body adjusted and get used to it.

 

Unfortunately the article did not unpack further on gamification for WPL. it does seems like a far stretch, or it’s just my lack of imagination; but IMHO it could be an interesting possibility to ponder.

with projects such as these, there is less doubt that they do bring some experiences: spatial or even could be emotional experiences to the learner. could simulation completely simulate real-life experience? not because we have anything against real-life experiences, but due to scarcity of opportunities in experiencing them.

Facebook is for bonding, Twitter is for bridging: Contextualizing social media involvement as help-seeking behavior

the dichotomy between bridging and bonding, and their respective association with twitter and facebook is interesting. it probably not that simple in a sense that both are just online tool that has ability limited by their technical affordances. but is it true people would feel stronger ties with people they facebook with compared to people they tweet with?

The Role of Content Curator in Workplace Learning

The Role of Content Curator in Workplace Learning | Innovation in WPL | Scoop.it

I think the article provokes an exciting thought; what would content-curator’s role in workplace learning? The predominant pedagogy approach used in workplace learning (WPL) is reflection.

 

One of the blog at http://community.paper.li/2012/03/07/why-a-content-curator-is-not-an-editor/ quoted a definition of curator as “…someone who continually finds, groups, organizes and shares information resources.”; in passing, it doesn’t imply a deep reflective process which underpins the learning in WPL. Its popularity is almost like a by-product of the exponential growth of user generated content in the web and the inability of computer algorithm to comb through those contents (http://www.fastcompany.com/1834177/content-curators-are-new-superheros-web).

 

But is it just that? Sadly, the original article that provoked my thinking on content curator and WPL, IMHO, did not unpack its statement. Just because a content-curator platform can be used to curate WPL-related content, do not make it valuable (or even relevant) to the practice of WPL.

 

Reflecting on my own practice since I join the world of digital curating using Scoop.it, I found it’s an exciting process; it’s rather difficult to explain, the excitement is somewhere between bookmarking for my own personal use, blogging my opinion to share to others, and participating in a community of practice. Blog can be intimidating to some people, when our light-bulb is not lit, people who are not a prolific blogger would shy away from the practice. Social-bookmarking can be boring since the lack of appealing visual presentation and difficult to present my annotation in a manner that is attractively consumable by others. Content Curator offers a set of affordances which seemingly can overcome the awkwardness of the other two tools.

 

How that would then can benefit the practice in WPL? Would be interesting to explore.

Exploring the pedagogies used in work integrated learning

Exploring the pedagogies used in work integrated learning | Innovation in WPL | Scoop.it

This paper focuses on the pedagogical approaches used in New Zealand WIL programs in terms of integration of student knowledge, and what impact these have on student learning. A collective case study methodology was used involving three areas of tertiary education science and engineering; business and management; and sport studies. The study involved researchers working collaboratively conducting focus group interviews with a selection of WIL students, academic supervisors, and employers from the relevant discipline about their teaching and learning experiences at both the academic institution and in the workplace. Relevant documentation (e.g., course/paper outlines, graduate profiles, etc.) was analyzed to afford data triangulation. The findings indicated that the WIL experience is a point of difference that students and employers value. Student learning (soft and hard skills, personal and professional development) occurs from a variety of sources (self-directed, supervisors, and peers) and a variety of modes (on campus, on placement). The findings reinforce what can be achieved through WIL programs, and through dissemination of the findings raise awareness amongst tertiary education institutions (TEIs) of the future possibilities available
via this pedagogy.

Practice wisdom | by M. Litchfield

Practice wisdom | by M. Litchfield | Innovation in WPL | Scoop.it

A participatory process approach in research and scholarship is proposed in the context of the postmodern movement and a disciplinary emphasis on practice. Two sequential studies are presented to illustrate praxis in nursing in which health is expanding consciousness. A framework of personal practice was developed from the first study and reconceptualized in the second as a process of modeling practice involving partnership, dialogue, pattern recognition, and health as dialectic. This praxis illustrates the merging of theory, practice and research as practice wisdom. Health and caring can be seen as the same process.

Beyond the App - You Found an App, Now What? | Innovation in WPL | Scoop.it

With all of the technology integration and the plethora of academic apps flooding the market, the time is ripe for teachers to take advantage of these teaching tools.  More and more, classrooms are incorporating iPods and iPads into everyday instruction.  This is such a gift for today’s students.  There is no denying that iDevices, when used efficiently, are some of our greatest teaching tools.  However, using this technology for effective instruction is a challenge that teachers need to face and accept.
