#GuildChat for 03/13/2015: Mobile Technologies and Learning

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday March 13th at 11am PT / 2pm ET. The topic for this chat is Mobile Technologies and Learning.

2015-01-09_11-14-16Mobile technologies have quickly become the primary devices many people use to access information and connect with each other. As our habits for consuming and connecting with information continue to evolve, it will naturally change the ways in which we learn.

In this week’s #GuildChat we’re going to explore the many ways that mobile is changing the learning landscape. We’ll discuss how we use mobile for learning personally, and professionally. We’ll talk about the challenges and opportunities of using mobile in organizations, as well as sharing examples of mobile learning experiences done right.

Here are the questions currently scheduled to be posed during the chat.

  • How do you use your mobile devices for your personal learning?
  • What are some really good (or really bad) examples of “learning on a mobile” you have experienced in day-to-day life? What made it good or bad?
  • What’s different about learning on a mobile device as opposed to other technologies?
  • “Every organization is using mobile for learning, whether they realize it or not.” Do you agree or disagree? Why?
  • What does it mean to have a “mobile strategy”? What types of things would need to be included in one?
  • What are some things learning professionals do today that would need to be done differently for mobile? How are things different?
  • Where do you see the mobile learning conversation going in the future?

1:27 PM Learning_Dude A4) By disagreeing, I’m saying they don’t realize it so they aren’t using mobile for learning. Associates connect via mobile. #guildchat
1:27 PM weisblatt A3) Immediacy and ubiquity #guildchat
1:27 PM willconstantine Q3) the learning should be instant #GuildChat

1:28 PM npmaven A4) May debate the “every,” but not the spirit. Learning is everywhere. W/smart phones, tablets more commonplace, it’s there. #guildchat
1:28 PM weisblatt A4) Clarification: Every Individual in every org is using mobile for learning. #guildchat
1:28 PM seanbengry A4) Agree for the majority. Their people are using mobile devices to collaborate/communicate whether they approve or not #GuildChat
1:28 PM JD_Dillon A4) I’d say every customer/employee is using mobile for learning. I don’t think many orgs realize or leverage that reality. #GuildChat
1:28 PM LnDDave A3) Based on the gap between what mobile *can* do and what we do with it, I’d argue not enough is different. #GuildChat
1:28 PM LnDDave RT @eLearningGuild: Q4) “Every organization is using mobile for learning, whether they realize it or not.” Do you agree or disagree? Why? #…
1:28 PM aschulze2001 Agree. There is a disconnect between how and what we learn with (mobile) and learning experienes we create. #GuildChat
1:28 PM Learning_Dude I agree every org should embrace mobile. If I’m a sales rep in the field…I don’t have a computer…I need access to info. #guildchat
1:28 PM MelMilloway A4 I agree because people are most likely looking things up on their phone 4 their job esp. if their job is mobile i.e. engineers #GuildChat

1:30 PM Ruthie_HB @Learning_Dude Method to extend learning through our peers. #GuildChat
1:30 PM seanbengry A4) I think a key here is the antiquated definition of “learning” in the organization. Learning=Training in the minds of many. #GuildChat

1:31 PM Learning_Dude . @seanbengry True, and that’s probably Y many haven’t “gotten on the bus.” Mobile isn’t learning because it’s not training… #guildchat

1:32 PM Ruthie_HB RT @weisblatt: A4) Even with a nineties brick phone, you used it to call someone to learn what to do. #guildchat
1:32 PM MelMilloway @jennyrhill I agree. There needs to be a plan involved for it. #GuildChat
1:32 PM aschulze2001 @jennyrhill Agree. But why is that? As learning professionals are we not doing our jobs? #GuildChat
1:32 PM spotlearning Q4) I would say employees are using mobile for learning whether orgs support it or not. http://t.co/dRXIenNyU1 #GuildChat
1:32 PM Learning_Dude . @weisblatt I probably consider it normal practice, but failing to provide me the resources to get the work done… #guildchat
1:32 PM Learning_Dude . @weisblatt …leaves me wondering what other support isn’t being provided. #guildchat
1:32 PM LnDDave A4) Often “Organizational mobile learning” consists of individuals using their own mobile to get around desktop limitations. #GuildChat

1:35 PM weisblatt A5) Mobile strategy: stop getting in the way f mobile #guildchat
1:35 PM DonaldClark A5 #guildchat Spaced practice
1:35 PM seanbengry A5) Don’t think “mobile” strategy, rather, think about a new L&D strategy, and how does mobile fit into that? #GuildChat
1:35 PM LnDDave A4) I think it starts with realizing that “mobile learning” is much more than “making learning accessible on a mobile” #GuildChat
1:36 PM JD_Dillon A5) Step 2 – recognize and leverage the impact of mobile devices on all info consumption behaviors. It’s not just about mobile! #GuildChat
1:36 PM LnDDave RT @eLearningGuild: Q5) What does it mean to have a “mobile strategy”? What types of things would need to be included in one? #GuildChat
1:36 PM willconstantine Q5) there shouldn’t be a mobile strategy itself. Mobile should a part of your overall learning strategy #GuildChat
1:36 PM willconstantine Q5) is it aligned to the org? What’s the status on all tech in the org? #GuildChat
1:36 PM LnDDave A5) I don’t think you really have a mobile strategy; you have a strategy – singular – that incorporates mobile. #GuildChat
1:36 PM JD_Dillon RT @seanbengry: A5) Don’t think “mobile” strategy, rather, think about a new L&D strategy, and how does mobile fit into that? #GuildChat
1:36 PM Learning_Dude A5) Having a mobile strategy should include preparing for additional discoveries, inquiries, pushed barriers, etc. #guildchat
1:36 PM seanbengry A5) Every digital learning experience should be device/browser agnostic. If it’s not, then there needs to be a strong reason why #GuildChat
1:37 PM jennyrhill @eLearningGuild A5) I think the first step may be just to stop limiting access- Employees need to access work information easily. #guildchat
1:37 PM willconstantine RT @seanbengry: A5) Don’t think “mobile” strategy, rather, think about a new L&D strategy, and how does mobile fit into that? #GuildChat

1:42 PM Learning_Dude . @jennyrhill Yes, we do. But what about “them?” ;) #guildchat

1:50 PM jennyrhill @eLearningGuild A7) more into data, more into wearables, more into performance support. Helping learners make better decisions. #guildchat
1:50 PM JD_Dillon A7) Well considering we’re already this far behind, I can’t imagine it will speed up much in the immediate future … #GuildChat
1:50 PM MelMilloway @JD_Dillon I agree. I think different audiences will use mobile very differently. #GuildChat

1:50 PM Learning_Dude In corporate learning, I see the mobile conversation dragging on as leaders question whether it’s here to stay. #guildchat
1:50 PM LnDDave A7) I see the mobile learning conversation becoming less about learning and more about supporting work and solving problems. #GuildChat
1:50 PM seanbengry A7) Mobile learning shouldn’t be considered separate, rather, it’s just “learning”. When we get there, we’ve finally understood #GuildChat
1:51 PM WonderPix a7) Fewer and fewer differences. Content is content, and learners need it whenever/wherever. #GuildChat
1:51 PM Learning_Dude We don’t have non-mobile learning quite figured out. We throw training at problems. Mobile won’t solve THAT. #guildchat
1:51 PM weisblatt RT @WonderPix: a7) Fewer and fewer differences. Content is content, and learners need it whenever/wherever. #GuildChat
1:51 PM LnDDave RT @seanbengry: A6) It’s the fastest adopted technology in history, L&D should align to behavior not force old methodology into a smaller s…

1:51 PM Learning_Dude At risk of sounding like a broken record, we need to differentiate between content accessed via mobile and mobile perf support. #guildchat
1:51 PM Mandausch A6) Learning professionals should carefully (re-)design their content if they want to seriously use mobile learning/devices #GuildChat
1:51 PM JD_Dillon A7) Users/tech will force the issue – we won’t have a choice but to drive content in a world dominated by mobile devices #GuildChat
1:52 PM Learning_Dude If I need to know something right now, and I’m not at a PC…where’s the mobile solution? #guildchat
1:52 PM LnDDave A7) I see L&D adapting to mobile being inserted in different areas of the organization. #GuildChat
1:52 PM Learning_Dude If I’m enrolled in a course and have time at the DMV, where’s the content? #guildchat
1:52 PM willconstantine RT @eLearningGuild: Q7) Where do you see the mobile learning conversation going in the future? #GuildChat
1:52 PM GerDriesen Agree! “@jennyrhill: @eLearningGuild A7) more into data, wearables, performance support. Helping learners make better decisions. #guildchat”
1:52 PM weisblatt A7) We’ll stop thinking about what mlearning is. Mobile will force us to rethink what learning is. #guildchat
1:52 PM jennyrhill @Learning_Dude Really, all learning should be more about supporting work and solving problems- mobile will help get us there #guildchat

1:53 PM GerDriesen RT @JD_Dillon: A6) Focus on context, moment of need vs. “time to learn” #GuildChat
1:53 PM Learning_Dude One day all our brains will be connected wirelessly and the device convo will be dead; a moot point. #guildchat
1:53 PM willconstantine Q7) mobile will carry on even of the orgs don’t want to… #GuildChat
1:53 PM Learning_Dude If I want to know it I just think it. ;) #guildchat
1:53 PM aschulze2001 It’s not about the platform – PC or mobile. It’s about learning. Mobile is just one way. #GuildChat
1:53 PM Dan_Jacques_LD A7) Mobile will be proactive instead or reactive, based on what you look up on Google will drive the ads you see, learning next? #GuildChat
1:53 PM britz A7. As mlearning becomes more common and devices ubiquitous, we may just see the “m” get dropped in those conversations #GuildChat
1:53 PM willconstantine Q7) we will get deeper into topics like UI/UX design and content management  #GuildChat
1:54 PM JD_Dillon A7) Eventually it won’t be a category anymore – just like social – will be the way things work #GuildChat
1:54 PM seanbengry A7) as these devices become more powerful and personal, it becomes more of a conversation of “why can’t I learn here?” #GuildChat
1:54 PM ExpertusONE Yep MT @Learning_Dude We don’t have non-mobile learning quite figured out. We throw training at problems. Mobile won’t solve THAT #guildchat
1:54 PM weisblatt RT @Learning_Dude: One day all our brains will be connected wirelessly and the device convo will be dead; a moot point. #guildchat
1:54 PM jennyrhill @Learning_Dude Yes! http://t.co/gtA1r7uhcM ;) #guildchat
1:54 PM aschulze2001 @Learning_Dude Agree. I was thinking Matrix. Just plug me in. #GuildChat
1:54 PM Learning_Dude . @jennyrhill I agree, but in organizations, especially large, it’s a steep uphill climb. #guildchat
1:54 PM spotlearning A7) we need to train up the ID / eD Cadre to design better learning for #mobileLearning. #GuildChat
1:54 PM Learning_Dude . @aschulze2001 Oh, don’t worry. We’ll all be wireless. #guildchat
1:55 PM seanbengry @JD_Dillon Exactly! No “social” learning, no “m”Learning, no “e”Learning… it’ll all be learning in the context of work #GuildChat
1:55 PM Learning_Dude RT @spotlearning: A7) we need to train up the ID / eD Cadre to design better learning for #mobileLearning. #GuildChat
1:55 PM jennyrhill @Learning_Dude True.  But knowing the direction still helps get us there (eventually). #guildchat
1:55 PM eLearningGuild Time is drawing short. Any final thoughts you’d like to share about today’s topic? #GuildChat
1:55 PM weisblatt RT @eLearningGuild: Time is drawing short. Any final thoughts you’d like to share about today’s topic? #GuildChat
1:55 PM LnDDave A7) Mobile is changing what it means to work; how we support learning will need to evolve accordingly. #GuildChat
1:55 PM LnDDave RT @eLearningGuild: Time is drawing short. Any final thoughts you’d like to share about today’s topic? #GuildChat
1:56 PM spotlearning A7) also, think the conversation will shift toward supporting and evaluating experience rather than content. #GuildChat
1:56 PM Learning_Dude . @jennyrhill That’s also true, but “the direction” is more about the bottom line than it is about “learning.” #guildchat
1:56 PM CraigTaylor74 @britz Yes please!! #GuildChat
1:56 PM weisblatt Mobile changes the scale, time, focus, context of consuming content. #guildchat
