    From the learning perspective, it’s the latter we want to address. This, from a learning perspective, is what I term a ‘misconception’ Here, we’re supposed to be using a particular mental model to guide our performance, but we might not have the right model, or no model and we import a wrong one. When I was a grad student, my advisor looked a lot at error. HIs particular focus was to prevent it through good interface design.

    One of my mantras is that organizations need to align better with how we think, work, and learn. We need to incorporate this in our learning design, but it should go beyond training and learning and be involved in helping people understand why their work is important and how they contribute. It’s hart to change from the old hierarchical models, but we’re continually learning that other approaches work better. meta-learning strategy

    The same goes for education and learning. I gave a presentation on ‘Understanding Media for Learner Engagement’ to the UNL Extension network yesterday. It was based on McLuhan’s laws of media which I have discussed many times here since 2004 ( communication in evolution ) and more recently ( taking back our society ). One effect of the network era, and its pervasive digital connections, is that networks are replacing or subverting more traditional hierarchies.

    We’ve also collectively learned as an industry that one-size-fits-all technology, especially in the enterprise, often ends up fitting the needs much fewer people than we expect. The IT industry has steadily been moving beyond its roots in data management and record keeping for a few decades now, approximately since the advent of corporate e-mail. As I’ve tracked over the years , this trend is more broadly known as the shift from systems of record to systems of engagement.
