Clark Quinn

Clark Quinn earned his Ph D in applied cognitive science under Don Norman and has designed mobile, performance support, serious games, online learning, and intelligent learning systems. Before striking out on his own as an advisor to corporations and government, Clark taught at University of New South Wales.

When we get together, the conversation turns to organizational learning strategies, meta-learning, and hops. I asked Clark to lend me a hand in an area I do not know much about: mobile learning. His words appear here, not mine.

Tap into Clark’s thinkiing at Quinnovation. Clark’s Learnlets blog is on my short list.

Lee LeFever

Two years ago I wrote flowing descriptions of how web 2.0 tools worked. When I saw one of Lee LeFever’s shorty videos, I dragged them into the trash.

A year ago, Lee and his bride Sachi returned from a year-long trip around the world. They had uploaded a lot of video for friends and decided to make a simple video of how RSS works. That video, RSS in Plain English has now been seen by 750,000 people! More than 400,000 have watched Wikis in Plain Englist. Overall, more than 1,000,000 have watched Lee and Sachi’s videos. Do a Google search on wikis or social networking and you’ll find a Plane English video on the first page. Lee’s explanation? Make content people want to see. Continue Reading »

Harold is a former Canadian infantry officer and current learning consultant who resided in Sackville, New Brunswick.

He’s a fellow contrarian, saying that “When I look on my life I realize that I usually take the road less traveled. I’m always looking for new and different ways to do things. And once I’ve figured out something I want to move to the next challenge. Much of what I learn I try to share. My friends say that I give away too much, but I can’t help making connections and recommending other people’s skills when I see a need.

“I’ve found a passion in the area of sharing, learning, reflecting and collaborating using new Web tools such as social network systems, blogs and wikis. I constantly try out new tools and techniques and then I use my pragmatic business bend to recommend the right ones for my clients and colleagues. People and organisations often come to me – like government agencies, start-ups and non-profits – because they need a trusted advisor who can give them a roadmap and guide them on implementation.”

Harold and I jointly conducted the pioneering Unworkshops in late 2006, and we are working on several projects together now.

Art Kleiner

You may not have heard of the guy, but Art Kleiner, has made a major impact on my thinking.

Art Kleiner is a writer, lecturer and editorial consultant with a
background in management, interactive media, corporate
environmentalism, scenario planning, and organizational learning.
His column, “Culture and Change,” appears in Strategy & Business,
the business quarterly for general readers published by Booz Allen
Hamilton. He is a co-author (with Peter Senge et al) of the bestselling
Fifth Discipline Fieldbook (1994), The Dance of Change
(1999), and Schools That Learn (2000) — a multiple-author trilogy
published by Doubleday, focusing, respectively, on organizational
learning, sustaining change in business, and the education system.
Kleiner’s book The Age of Heretics (1996, Doubleday/Currency), is a
history of the thinkers and practitioners who sparked the modern
organizational change movement; it was a finalist for the Edgar G.
Booz award for most innovative business book of 1996. His
forthcoming book Who Really Matters is an exploration of the hidden
purposes of organizations in action.
