Great Webinars "Great Webinars provides a profoundly practical and easy-to-follow template for creating and facilitating stimulating webinars that engage learners as active participants, while creating the kind of energetic 'buzz' that is the hallmark of successful learning experiences. The book is sure to benefit both seasoned instructors and subject matter experts who are new to teaching. I sure wish this book had existed when I began conducting webinars back in the mid 1990s."—Carol Willett, former chief learning officer, US Government Accountability Office "Not only has Cindy Clay put the adult learning principles into practice, she has created an approach to the design, development and delivery of a virtual workshop that is potentially more engaging than being face-to-face. Great Webinars captures all the essentials to creating a great on-line learning experience. . . . Thanks to the lessons learned in this book, we can now move full speed ahead with our e-learning strategy and I can now feel confident we will be teaching versus simply reaching our customers."—Karen Pacent, director, Learning and Leadership Development, United States Tennis Association "Great Webinars is written in a smart, authentic, practical, sassy, and easy-to-follow way. It reminds us to bring our participants' experience front and center if we want them to be enthralled, and the learning environment to be enriched. Cynthia Clay lets her own students tell us what is wrong with the current use of webinars and then proceeds to teach us how to build 'em better. It's like having her sit beside you saying, 'Don't worry . . . I'll get you there.' And she does."—Beverly Kaye, founder/CEO, Career Systems International; coauthor, Love 'Em or Lose 'Em and Getting Good People to Stay

In the twenty-first century, educators around the world are being told that they need to transform education systems to adapt young people for the challenges of a global digital knowledge economy. Too rarely, however, do we ask whether this future vision is robust, achievable or even desirable, whether alternative futures might be in development, and what other possible futures might demand of education. Drawing on ten years of research into educational innovation and socio-technical change, working with educators, researchers, digital industries, students and policy-makers, this book questions taken-for-granted assumptions about the future of education. Arguing that we have been working with too narrow a vision of the future, Keri Facer makes a case for recognizing the challenges that the next two decades may bring, including: the emergence of new relationships between humans and technology the opportunities and challenges of aging populations the development of new forms of knowledge and democracy the challenges of climate warming and environmental disruption the potential for radical economic and social inequalities. This book describes the potential for these developments to impact critical aspects of education – including adult-child relationships, social justice, curriculum design, community relationships and learning ecologies. Packed with examples from around the world and utilising vital research undertaken by the author while Research Director at the UK’s Futurelab, the book helps to bring into focus the risks and opportunities for schools, students and societies over the coming two decades. It makes a powerful case for rethinking the relationship between education and social and technological change, and presents a set of key strategies for creating schools better able to meet the emerging needs of their students and communities. An important contribution to the debates surrounding educational futures, this book is compelling reading for all of those, including educators, researchers, policy-makers and students, who are asking the question 'how can education help us to build desirable futures for everyone in the context of social and technological change?'

Welcome to the Age of Immediacy. We're in a new era of learning, one in which learners expect information to be available anywhere and anytime. How do you make sure your learning experiences keep up with the pace of workplace transformation? In Learning in the Age of Immediacy: 5 Factors for How We Connect, Communicate, and Get Work Done, learning strategist Brandon Carson argues that five edge technologies (augmented reality and virtual reality, the cloud, mobile, big data, and the Internet of Everything) are transforming the modern workplace, requiring new learning methods to empower the modern worker. Through real-world case studies and interviews with industry experts and business leaders, he shows how these technologies affect training's design, delivery, and evaluation. He also provides practical advice to integrate the five factors into your learning strategy, helping you answer important questions along the way: What will the workforce you support look like in the next several years? How will you provide in-the-moment learning for the streaming economy the cloud has introduced? Do you have a mobile learning strategy? (You should). And how will you use the emerging practice of data science to provide evidence of training’s value to the business? The stakes are high, and these factors could be the difference between achieving measurable results or driving your learners to seek solutions elsewhere. Use Learning in the Age of Immediacy to create a learning plan that will serve your workforce now and in the future!
