Web 2.0 and e-Learning 2.0 succeed partly through conversations and exchanges of stories and scenarios.
Obama's inauguration had millions of people each one with a unique story to tell. Imagine the conversations in blogs, twitters, photo-sharing, etc. Mind-bugling.
Tony O'Driscol talks of a similar example during the post-Virginia Tech event.
Tony Karrer suggests the need for the New Work Literacy. I agree. Though, in my humble opinion, aside from learning how to search or use tags, learners and trainers must re-learn making conversations in e-Learning 2.0 meaningful, engaging, enriching and value-adding.
What is the quality of your conversations?
