A Passionate Plea for Change in Learning
noreply@blogger.com (Kimberley), Adventurous Learning
Before launching in here, I must identify myself as not only a corporate learning and communication strategist, but also the mom of three children in different stages of institutional learning in the United States. I come to this discussion with considerable investment in all kinds of learning. I also want to say that, while this post might be inspired by a single comment in a topic thread in the #PLENK2010 course I am taking, the fire in my argument is fueled by hearing and seeing the ...

Information Overload or Filter Failure - I get it.

As I was drowning Wednesday in #PLENK2010 feeds, someone threw me a lifeline via Twitter (thanks, Chris_Saeger). There are so many really well versed Meta-brainiacs in this course (and I use the term with great reverence and affection) that it is very easy to feel like something is bad wrong with you if you cannot keep up with everything. I mean, I stumbled into a very active conversation on a completely different hashtag tonight on Twitter (#lrnchat) and found someone making a reference to a ... [Link] 2010-09-17T15:02:00

A story from the #PLENK2010 fringe
noreply@blogger.com (Kimberley), Adventurous Learning
I do not want to forget how it felt to start.First, I am a Communication and Learning Strategist for pretty much all of the major oil and gas companies.

This course is no different. As out-of-my-league as I feel in this moment as I read the blogs, twitter ... [Link] 2010-09-16T23:08:00

The Intersection Between Learning and Communication
noreply@blogger.com (Kimberley), Adventurous Learning
To be honest…my head is swimming today. I am a learning and communication strategist for huge corporations. This means I work at the intersection of learning and communications and try to bring the best of both worlds to each project I am involved in. It has never been an easy thing to do. So much floating through my brain at once…and I am so anxious to capture all of it and incorporate it. I don’t want to lose even a casual reference in a conversation. Every time I notice anything ...

Busy Week!
noreply@blogger.com (Kimberley), Adventurous Learning
I am writing this from Vancouver. The Ragan Communications conference on Social Networking in communications starts tomorrow. Concurrently, PLENK begins in earnest tomorrow. I have started this blog to support my exploration into innovation in both learning and communication. I have high hopes that the learning I am set to do over the coming weeks will teach me how to populate this blog with the coolest stuff out there. I have my lap belt buckled and am ready for launch. Let's do ... [Link] 2010-09-13T01:23:00
