How to Revolutionise Workplace Learning

Learning is learning, which happens in roughly the same way for all of us, though in different contexts and in various venues across our lives. The sooner workplace educators break from their boxes and their lingo, and in many cases help the organisations that employ them unlearn what they’ve so caustically coached them on erroneously for years, the sooner they’ll be seen as true partners in reaching new heights.

Tomorrow’s Too Late by Jay Cross

Note from Marcia: More than a decade ago, I was editor of an online magazine focused on the promise of learning in the new economy. We addressed learning as the lifeblood of society, a natural process living things did nonstop, bearing little resemblance to modern practices in school or training. Jay Cross wrote several wonderful articles for the publication. With the exception of a reference to VCRs, and Jay’s hallmark cottage-industry sketches, the piece seems as timely to me today as it did back in 2001.

February 24, 2015 would have been Steve Jobs’ 60th birthday. As Seth Godin points out, “Jobs’ contribution wasn’t invention. Technology breakthroughs didn’t come out of his basement the way they did from Land or Tesla. Instead, his contribution was to have a point of view.” In the spirit of Steve Jobs, let’s name today Make a Ruckus Day, celebrating the man who once said, “I want to put a ding in the universe” and consistently encouraged all of us to make a difference that matters.
