Andrew Gerkens's curator insight, April 6, 4:47 PM

A Personal learning Network (PLN) is a simple and powerful way to develop. I'd like to see the development of a PLN and professional network integrated as a key '20' activity within every development plan (and process). Give workers the awareness, the resources and the support to develop and maintain their networks and make them accountable for it.

This has to be one of the programs I cannot do without - for personal as well as professional organisation of my life. I am finding that the more I add, the better it is. It is my digital filing cabinet, my bookmarks, my reminders, my collection of stuff. It is utterly wonderful. If you are looking for a method by which to reduce paper and sort out your online presence, this is it - but be persistent!

3 Most Important Words In Internet Marketing: Games, Gamification, Gamify

Why MUST Internet marketers understand games and gaming? Because the wall between THEM (game developers) and US (Internet marketers) is coming down FAST, very fast. There are three reasons for this soon to be tsunami trend:

* Web 3.0.
* How Online Environments Work.
* Human nature.

Web 3.0
We are creating CureCancerStarter.org right now and there are many new rules about web development that reflect where we are going already such as:
* The site is highly responsive (looks good no matter what kind of devices is looking at it).

* This new site uses a Content Delivery Network and the cloud to cache and shuffle information in so fast old rules about image size and speed (bigger = slow) almost don't apply.
* The site is "appified" or designed in a series of Lego-like modules some canned, some written by us from scratch.


Web development is going someplace very different and where we are going is where many video developers already live with extensive branding algorithms to determine what gest shown in what situations.  Soon your "website" will be a series of rules, text and images capable of being combined on the fly in an almost infinite variety of highly converting webpages.

Online Environments
Online environments are very video game like from the jump. Online starts COLD and HARSH and we web designers and developers PLAN how to warm them up. We create a series of linked "journeys" through our information.

If "a series of linked journeys" sounds like Joseph Campbell and Hero With A Thousand Faces you win a cookie. Ideally our environments are heroic and they transfer elements of courage, joy and love to our visitors. Sounds like video games again.

Human Nature
We like to compete, compare and contrast. We seek affinity groups and develop our sense of self, at least partially; from the feedback loops provided by our "like me" groups.

The social web is a "peer group" compare, compete and contrast engine. The more we compare, contrast and compete the more fun we have. Sounds like video games again.

I'm going to read Adam's book and report back once I am in reading mode again (after launching CureCancerStarter, cowdfunding cancer research, and CureCancerStore.org, shop to cure cancer, next week. Phase II development for both of those very new ideas is games, gamification and to gamify.

How To Implement Blended Learning | Edudemic

How To Implement Blended Learning | Edudemic | My Learning Adventure | Scoop.it

Blended learning can be a great way to make use of whatever technology tools you do have, rather than needing specific technology that you don’t have. Blended learning doesn’t require you to have a 1:1 classroom, a certain number of iPads, or particular software, though you can put any and all of those things to use as you choose. Thus, blended learning covers a lot of ground – and in the process it helps to make learning more engaging, effective, and efficient.
