Had a lovely conversation with George Jibladze, Founder of the nonprofit GiveInternet.Org, today. 🌐 We discussed nonprofits, ethics, and systems thinking. 

George is looking to conduct more casual, 30-minute interviews with people who have donated to any nonprofit in the last 18 months.

The purpose is to learn about how donors make decisions (e.g. what things nonprofits do well or what dissuades you from contributing) and get ideas for potential projects that can provide value to those aligned with his mission to close the digital divide.

If interested, reach out to him here on Polywork, LinkedIn, or email him at george@giveinternet.org.

Learning Experience Facilitator

In collaboration with Coleap, I supported Product and Learning Design leader Alex Sarlin in delivering his cohort-based Bootcamp on EdTech Product Management for 30 adult learners.

We had founders, product managers, researchers, learning designers and more representing these companies and institutions:

➑️ Google Cloud, Aprende Institute, Stanford University, Doyobi, Zen Educate, BUNCH, edX, Story Squad, Rhithm, Outschool, Tiny CFO, Galileo, Boston College, Coschool, Minds Studio, Curious Cardinals, Teach for America, Twenix, Higher Ground Education, SnappEd, Braided Media, IE University, Your Juno, sAInaptic, and Oppidan Education ⬅️

Through case studies and workshops, learners gained knowledge on...
  • finding and sizing their target market
  • creating value propositions
  • prioritizing features
  • roadmapping
  • tracking product metrics
  • aligning teams, and
  • creating epic narratives
- all in the context of the EdTech industry. πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’» πŸ’­ πŸ“š

We also had guest speaker sessions with...
I reviewed course material, led community management, troubleshot technical issues, and collaborated with Alex and the Coleap team by providing continuous feedback to improve the platform and learner experience.

Moderated a guest speaker session at the International EdTech Association featuring Kate Udalova, Founder and CPO of 7tapsΒ πŸŽ™

She addressed the Learning Boss Challenge of the month 🧠:

How might we use microlearning to enhance L&D strategies? πŸ“ˆ

These were my favorite takeaways:

🧩 Even though β€œshort” is the most common word used to describe microlearning, it is not limited to a particular length of time. How long your session lasts depends heavily on the use case and what you are trying to achieve.

🧩 Microlearning doesn’t have to be digital! Even an informative poster on the wall counts.

🧩 Don't simply cut your existing one-hour-long course into dozens of pieces and call it microlearning. A true piece responds to ONE learning objective.

🧩 You can use microlearning to pre-teach concepts, share an agenda, or set expectations before a training session to make it more meaningful.

🧩 You can also engage audience members with a piece of microlearning at the end of a webinar to summarize its content and provide contact information.
