Six Word Summaries

I really enjoyed this Sebastian Wernicke TEDx Talk about how he approached the task of summarizing each TEDTalk to six words.

Now wouldn’t it be fun to summarize every piece of content we consume in to six word summaries.  Or how about starting with summarizing all the content you create…online courses, white papers, even e-mails? It also might be interesting to ask each learner to create their own summaries of each courses and posting them for all learners to see.

Most training is worthless!!??

This brief interview with Larry Prusak made me laugh out loud. This rivals some of the horrible things that Donald Norman has to say about ISD and behavior-based models of training design.
