Learning 2.0: Learning 2.0: Using Web 2.0 Tools for Learning and Communication

1,285 views

Published on

Presented at IU 21 in Schnecksville, PA on October 27, 2010.

The web has changed from a one-way communication vehicle to a two-way, collaborative space that enables conversations, content creation, connections and collaboration to enhance learning and communication. How can you use these new, often free, tools to enhance your learning activities in the classroom and the school district? The session will explore the changing Internet landscape, opportunities for using web 2.0 as a learning and communication tool, strategies for implementing web 2.0 and an exploration of some tools that enable Learning 2.0.

    Has anyone heard of any of the terms on the screen?
    They are other terms by which web 2.0 is known. Learning 2.0 is essentially web 2.0 tools used for learning.

  • I’m not going to take time to give a dictionary description of Web 2.0. If you want that you can look it up on wikipedia (or a dictionary).
    Let’s dive a little deeper. This is a Web 2.0 word cloud indicating some terms that can be used to describe Web 2.0. Take a minute to review the word cloud. Are there any words that you want to discuss? Are there any words that you’d like more explanation about or any words that you didn’t think would be included with an explanation of Web 2.0?
    Word cloud from wordle.net – go out and show wordle.net as an example of Web 2.0 if it’s an experienced group that’s looking for tools
    Basic description of Web 2.0 -Interconnected and interactive web-delivered content . . . versus web 1.0 which was often static, one-way web content. Web 2.0 is often referred to as the social web. Learning activities with Web 2.0 tools is referred to as Social Learning.
    Describe Mashup – if don’t get any responses
    Programming mashups
    Data / presentation mashups
    Combine data from multiple sources to create a new output
  • Here’s another Web 2.0 word cloud. This one is more detailed than the other – more technical. The other was more of a “user” word cloud. This one is more of an “implementer” word cloud.
    How about this one? What words do you want to talk about with this one?
    As you can see from this word cloud and even the one before, there are a lot of concepts, techniques, strategies and technologies that make up web 2.0.

    eLearning Guild – fall 2008
    1,160 Guild Members
    40% of respondents indicate they are making some use of e-Learning 2.0 approaches.
    Over the next 12 months, 70.1% of survey respondents plan to apply more e-Learning 2.0 approaches to their learning endeavors.
    (Use elsewhere) 66% of survey respondents believe that younger workers will demand e-Learning 2.0 approaches to performance support.
    Among members who have made significant use of e-Learning 2.0 approaches, 60.6% reporting improved learner / user performance.
    (Use this elsewhere) Only 28.1% of members report that their organizations are preparing workers on using Web 2.0 approaches for learning and work.
    (Use this elsewhere) Among members working in organizations with 10,000 or more workers, 10.8% cannot access LinkedIn, 26.2% cannot access Gmail, 35.0% cannot access YouTube, and 39.2% cannot access either Facebook or MySpace.

    The study included a survey of 743 respondents, most of whom are learning or HR professionals.
    (Use elsewhere) Just 9% of respondents to the i4cp study said that Web 2.0 technologies play a major role in the learning function in their company, and 32% said they play a minor role.
    About 87% of respondents predicted that, in the next three years, their organizations were more likely to use Web 2.0 technologies in the learning function than they currently do. Meanwhile, a minuscule 2% predicted that their firms would use these technologies to a lesser degree.

    Let’s simplify things a little bit.
    Bersin & Associates is an enterprise learning and talent management research and advisory company. They’ve tried to summarize Web 2.0 by creating 4 categories – The 4 C’s of Web 2.0.
    The categories are not exclusive. Tools can go cross-category, but for the most part their main use/purpose can be listed in one category.
    A lot of tools are “mashups” of all of these functions.

    Of the 2,600 learners surveyed across 27 schools, 74% have social networking accounts and 78% have uploaded artifacts (mostly photographs or video clips from phones) to the internet. However, nearly all Web 2.0 use is currently outside school, and for social purposes
    There are effective teaching and learning strategies that can be enhanced and implemented more efficiently with web 2.0
    Differential learning
    Project-based learning
    Student-centered learning
    Students are using it, but there not sure how to use them for learning. Not being used as a personal learning tool . . . Nor is it a natural tool for quality self-expression.
    http://educationpr.org/2007/11/19/book-review-web-20-new-tools-new-schools/
    Book: Web 2.0: new tools, new schools
    Solomon and Schrum observe that, although young people may be ahead of their teachers in using these tools, teachers can help them use the tools in educationally appropriate ways. With Web 2.0, students acquire knowledge from many more sources. As long as teachers vet those sources for accuracy and reliability, students can get a broader range of perspectives and resources.
    Also, some students don’t know how to subscribe . . . But they need these skills for 21st century jobs

    We are creating a moodle to offer a technology integration course. I have used Jing to do screen captures for the Moodle and other training materials. I have the IT department using skype for meetings. I set up Google Apps for the district and have several teachers using both google docs and google spreadsheets. Our science teachers love google spreadsheets for collecting experiment data. I have a few teachers using blogs as a summary tool for their classes. And one teacher about to create blog pages for each student to post their writings. I have set up discussion forums for several groups in our district including our instructional facilitators and high school subject teachers. I have a teacher using a ning with her literature class. Each student has a page on the ning as their character.

    What were some obstacles to using Web 2.0 technology in your classroom? (Select all that apply)
    35
    There were no obstacles – 0
    Selecting the right Web 2.0 tool – 4 (11%)
    Planning the lesson to take advantage of the Web 2.0 technology – 5 (14%)
    Internet technology (speed, availability, access, etc.) – 12 (34%)
    Getting approval from the administration – 1 3%)
    Getting approval from the parents – 1 (3%)
    Getting students to actively participate using the technology – 1 (3%)
    Assessing student learning when using Web 2.0 tools in the classroom – 4 (11%)
    Other: - 7 (20%)
    Time is the big "obstacle." I am lucky that my district is very open to using Web 2.0 tools, as long as we do it safely and cautiously.
    time commitment
    getting staff to actively participate using the techmology
    access to the sites (not being blocked by filter) and student email for some sites
    Getting teachers to be willing to learn and use new skills and access the tools
    Additional comments:
    I am permitted to do just about anything...so far...as long as I ask and give the technology directors a chance to reflect. Assessment of student work using WEB 2.0 requires a different rubric since there are additional skills involved in doing collaborative work -- assessment is one of my issues--but I have always hated to assign a grade to student work. Some of the Web 2.0 tools--like YouTube--are blocked by our security.
    As always, time commitment and all the additional demands made on the classroom teacher make it difficult to find the time to do many of the activities you would like.
    I supervise staff members who lack even the basic skills required to effectively use technology. Getting them on board has been a significant struggle.
    I have played with the above tools for a few years now. But this class really cemented for me each tools strengthens and weaknesses. So that when a teacher tells me what they want to do. I am able to tell them which tool would best meet their needs. The obstacle is overcoming the fear of opening these tools up for students and navigating safety, fear, common sense, educational value and appropriate use.
    The only thing that has held me back is the ocassional technological hiccup and the transfer of our blog server from an outside souce to within the District.
    Some issues with staff being able to create a google account or access the docs from the various districts they are housed in.
    Student access to technology
    fit into curriculum
    Selecting the tool is critical, otherwise technology is not enhancing the learning, it is just entertaining. The biggest issue was having the technology available for the students. Only in half of the rooms I travel to are there sets of 1:1 laptops. When I wanted to use it in the other classes, I had to beg, borrow, and stopped just short of stealing to get the students access to mini-laptops.
    There are so many different Web 2.0 tools it was hard to decide which one would best assist the students with learning. Planning was another obstacle I had to over come meaning no paper and how to incorporate teaching utilizing Web 2.0 tools, speed and connection time is always as issue.
    The students were more than happy to actively participate! I can't imagine that being an obstacles.
  • Andy
    Survey of students in the LTMS 600 class
    What solutions did you find to overcome any obstacles to using Web 2.0 technology in your classroom
    Other:
    I like to go to the administrators with a plan that tells them what and why and how. With that information in hand...they have been very open to permitting me to give it a try.
    I am not sure if you can ever fully overcome the obstacles of time constraints. The district is always adding more and more to our curriculum. You try to integrate the technology into the curriculum as best as you can. That is always my biggest challenge. The technology should not just be the 40 minutes you spend each week in the computer lab.
    Currently there are limited solutions - developing the appropriate trainings would be highly beneficial, however, we have very limited professional development time available and there are so many other critical topics we need to address that taking time to train in web 2.0 is almost impossible.
    Communicating education value of the tool and the techniques being implemented to aid in student safety
    Patience and flexibility.
    Prizes to those posting, posting pertinent information, using inservice time to practice together
    I am flexible when planning. I know to always have at least a plan B or C with technology. For the teachers who let me borrow their laptops, I am incredibly nice, so they will continue to let me borrow their set of laptops.
    I tried several different techniques which I learned in class to find the one that worked best with learning for the students. It was a trail and error.
    Planning, tech support
    plan ahead

    How did you benefit as a teacher from using Web 2.0 tools in your classroom
    Other:
    I am connected to others I have access to my student work where ever I am I don't have to carry a pile of papers home for grading I collaborate with my students--promoting a community of learning. I love technology and I learn something new every day!
    Yes. It allowed me to see how much more I could challenge my students and showed them different ways to present, discuss, and create projects and material to be mastered.
    I had known that web 2.0 applications were out there but did not know exactly what they were and how they could be used in the classroom.
    I was motivated and inspired to try many of the ideas that I learned at the Web 2.0 class. Hopefully, this also motivates and inspires the students.
    It provided several forums to connect staff that are located across a three-ounty area
    I am increasing my own professional development by using my RSS feeds, twitter etc.
    It has allowed the students to become more engaged in their learning, which has shifted the responsibility for learning more to the students. Before I was more te deliverer of the information. Now I still deliver the info, but ina way that is more flexible for the students. The studenta are also more readily able to collaborate, problem solve, and create new meaning out of the info.
    I feel that it revitalized my teaching!
    It really helped the students become more engaged when we were able to use the tools, which does result in better participation and grades.
    I can provide faster and more specific feedback to students. I am able to keep the students engaged, even after they have left the classroom. There is also an enhanced communication between me, the students, and parents.
    I became the facilitator instead of the teacher. The students were able to see their own potential and rise to the occasion.
    When the correct tool is selected, the learning became the responsibility of the student, and I was able to become the guide to the learning.
    students were more interested students participated more and at a higher level
    web 2.0 tools provided the most fun lessons.

    40
    There were NO benefits (0%)
    Increased engagement – 11 (28%)
    Increased student collaboration – 10 (25%)
    Increased accountability – 5 (13%)
    Decreased participation anxiety – 4 (10%)
    Extended activity outside the classroom – 7 (18%)
    Other, please specify - 3 (8%)
    Other:
    Paperless!!!!!!! or at least paper-less
    increased staff communication
    Teachers are getting new ideas to use in their programs from colleagues
    Additional Comments:
    We are seeing increased excitement from the students in the learning process. As well as increase collaboration among teachers and administrators.
    It has decreased participation anxiety for shy students. It may have increased anxiety for students who do not like technology, or who have weak computer skills.
    The biggest change I made this year was the daily class blog. I have six different classes and six different blogs. The blogs get updated daily - frequently by me, but the students also contribute. I always explain exactly what we did, what people need to make up if there were absent, and I embed other resources that will extend the learning (like YouTube videos or study games). Some students log on a couple times a week, just to see the extra activities. The videos are always highly requested. One video half the class sung along to the first time I played it in class because they had all watched it multiple times in class. My 6th graders are presenting on the collaborative work they did on Tuesday afternoon at PETE&C.
    The students were more engaged and wanted to learn. The collaboration also increased, to see the students talk to each other about what they were learning was cool

    Survey of students in the LTMS 600 class
    Do you plan to continue using Web 2.0 tools in your classroom?15
    Please explain:
    YES!!!!!!!
    I plan to expand the use of the tools I have started with various groups of students.
    I have always enjoyed using technology for myself and my students. I also like to motivate other teachers to try to use these technologies in their classrooms, too.
    I'm working on developing skill sets regarding 2.0 with the Educational Consultants that work in my program in order to provide teachers with guided practice in the use of the tools
    I want to expand my use of wikis and podcasting.
    Rome wasn't built in a day, so I will continue to use the tools even if it is slower than I would wish.
    I plan to continue to use google docs, blogs and wikis for teacher collaboration and increase the responsibility for teachers to access and utilize.
    Without the course, I would not have known about so many great tools. Additionally, talking and learning with other educators was very beneficial.
    This class is a must for all teachers of any age group. Our society is turning more towards technology, we must embrase the technology in order to keep up with the world.
    The benefits outweigh the challenges.
  • Poll:
    Which activity are you most engaged with in your job?
    Recruiting
    Onboarding
    Employee performance management
    Learning and development
    Aberdeen Group Study – HR Executive’s Guide to Web 2.0
    Use of web 2.0 from 2008 to 2009
    Recruiting – 105% growth
    Onboarding – 35% growth
    Learning and development – 35% growth
    Employee performance management – 2% growth
    Succession planning – 1% growth
    Let’s take a look at how organizations are using web 2.0 to improve performance
    Recruiting example: Also related to succession planning
    Enterprise social networking solutions are used by 54% of companies from the Aberdeen survey. Enterprises that used social networking reported a 31% year-over-year improvement of quality of hire, versus a 19% improvement reported by those not using the technology.
    HR Director from a mid-size US Based hospital network indicated “Each member of the recruiting team has joined a web-based community of individuals who are among our target candidate populations. Several have used the medium to volunteer to mentor newcomers to their field, creating a pipeline of future candidates.”
    Onboarding example:
    Company forums and discussions are powerful ways to build connections to ensure that new employees are engaged and assimilated into an organizational culture. Organizations that utilize company forums achieved a 24% year-over-year improvement in time to productivity (a key metric when measuring onboarding).
    Executive General Manager at Hudson Managed Services indicated “We created a Facebook group for a pool of international recruits so they had a ready-made network upon arrival.”
    Onboarding activities where web 2.0 tools are most critical:
    - Getting employees up to speed quickly in terms of skills and/or competencies needed to do the job well
    - Enabling new employees to find the “go to” people within the organization for answers to their questions
    - Acclimating new employees into the organization’s culture
    Learning and Development example:
    Tools that make content creation easier and more flexible like wikis or social tagging, which allow for individuals to share ideas more broadly and efficiently are showing strong adoption
    Top activities where web 2.0 tools are critical to success in learning and development
    - Enabling dispersed workers to collaborate and share ideas
    - Enabling learning to extend beyond the classroom and on the job
    - Allowing people to take part in learning without time or geographical boundaries
    TELUS, a North American telecom company used wikis for learning content creation and was able to add nearly 8,000 new hires while keeping training budgets flat
    - Extend Formal
    - Performance Support
    - Knowledge Management
    - Informal Learning
    Performance Management:
    Plan for how you will measure the success of web 2.0 tools
    -Participation
    -Use
    -Reduction in cost
    -Improvements in productivity
    -Hiring metrics
  • Group activity
    Aberdeen Group study of over 500 organizations
    55% utilize web 2.0 tools to facilitate knowledge capture and / or transfer
    36% utilize web 2.0 tools to connect employees with colleagues
    32% utilize web 2.0 tools to provide visibility into work/project progress by dispersed teams
    Group activity
    - Consider those three statistics and the categories we reviewed. Get in small groups, discuss an opportunity for using web 2.0 (an opportunity – not the tool)
    - Think of need for conversation, content, connections, collaboration
  • Additional opportunities to consider:
    PSU Outreach

    Miller Coors
    MillerCoors sales faced a potential downturn as they rolled out new sales software. They needed a better, faster result than classroom training. (Employees signing up for the same classes over the years)
    The MillerCoors University team took a risk by building their software training course in the firm’s existing SharePoint application.
    This initiative yielded a significant cost savings and speed to software mastery, as well as a collaborative architecture that is being adopted corporate wide.

  • Strategies for Implementing
    Determine Need
    Cultural – does your culture need to be more collaborative
    Operational – What challenges does your training operations face? What challenges does your organization face?
    Learning – Can learning outcomes be enhanced by social learning? For a variety of courses or just one course?
    Strategic – Do you want to be seen as a leader (person or department) in the organization?
    Organizational alignment
    Enterprise app. – are there existing enterprise applications that you can help drive to adoption by using for learning? Are there other resources that people are used to using that you can plug into?
    Customer services – Customer service (internal and external) can benefit from social computing. They can be a partner
    Marketing/communications – (Internal and external) can benefit from social computing. They can be a partner
    Building a business case
    Attach to business metrics
    Growth
    Reduction in costs
    Couple of different ways to think about your adoption method.
    Formal or informal (top-down, bottom-up)
    Formal – top-down = Longer time, more coordination, motivational factors
    Informal – bottom-up = Organic, user-driven , but difficult to managed. And bottom-up happens at its own speed, which doesn’t work when you have deadlines
    Pilot or the wedge (Bersin & Associates)
    Pilot (focused project)
    Build a community around single, high-value learning program
    􀂃Provides easy entry.
    􀂃Drives deep participation.
    􀂃Add users over time.
    􀂃(-) May not self-sustain.
    􀂃(-) May not have enough applicability beyond scope of project to spawn further use.
    Wedge (broad function)
    Use only one function to serve a single purpose (such as Q&A) across entire audience.
    􀂃Spreads exposure to system rapidly.
    􀂃Drives wide participation.
    􀂃Add uses over time.
    􀂃(-) May not adequately prepare for using each feature.
    􀂃(-) May not allow enough time for adminsto gain required skills.*
    Group activity:
    Share your need, organizational alignment. What business metrics could be impacted? What adoption method would you take? Discuss the pros and cons of those – or questions you have about them. We’ll ask each group to summarize their discussion at the end.
  • Design, Development, Implementation Considerations
    Culture (corporate and geographical)
    Training (trainers and learners)
    Learner profile (skills, time available, work environment)
    Instructional
    Technology (firewall, access from home, wireless access, mobile access)
    Policies/Guidelines
    Ownership/Stewardship
    Command & Control vs. Open - http://www.elsua.net/2009/03/09/impact-of-social-software-within-the-enterprise-by-jon-iwata/
    Sustainability
    Social Learning is Personal
    Evaluating effectiveness
    Test applications
    Resources – Online Community Manager is a new role
    Work-Life Balance
    Group Work:
    What considerations would be of most concern for you at your organization?
    How would you address them?
    What do you think are some characteristics of successful organizations?
    Characteristics of successful organizations:
    Establish metrics and monitor regularly
    Define a “why” – have a purpose
    Advanced planning before rolling out
    Provide training and support for users
    Allow time for it to take root
    Avoid a control mentality
    Identify and connect your experts (get them involved)
    Enroll senior leaders as web 2.0 champions
    Connect with other successful programs
