I’ve decide to draft out my new book on my blog.  The book is about how to you can shorten your own learning time as a student or shorten the learning curve for others if your a teacher, trainer or instructional designer.  I’m going to write this for everyone who is involved in any kind of learning. 

As a starting point, we’re going to assume that there are tremendous benefits in being able to learn faster.  This doesn’t mean taking short cuts or skipping things.  It means that if you have a choice of learning exactly the same thing to the same level of competence, you would almost always choice the one that gets you there faster. 

If you think that learning needs to be like fine wine that needs to be savoired, this book is not for you.  However, if you’re someone who thinks that the faster you learn, the more you have time to learn, you’re going to see some interesting thoughts and techniques.

I’m going to start the next post out with idea #1 and continue until I get to #101.  When I finally write the book, I’ll add more content and arrange the ideas into a logical sequence.  I’ll also take into account the feedback in the comments area.

I see a lot of blogs that are very heavy text often just one long paragraph.  While content is king, you have to do something to attract and keep people’s attention. 

Here’s a couple of things I’ve done to try an make my site more readable. 

  1. I start with an idea and then go look for a picture that expresses the idea.  In this post, I just wanted a picture to grab your attention.  Nothing like a dog with three balls in his month.
  2. Then I try to get across my point in a series of very short paragraphs.
  3. I try to keep my post to something that you can read in just a few minutes.  If I have more to say, I can always write another post.  Also if you exhaust a topic, what are you going to write about tomorrow.
  4. Keep to your theme but don’t be too predictable.  This blog is about learning so I always try to connect it in some way, but the range of topics is fairly broad.
  5. I also prefer a narrative style so it sounds like I’m having a conversation with the reader.

Here’s a great new site that I’ve found BlogTalkRadio.com.  It allows anyone to host their own talk radio show over the internet.  If you browse on over, you can listen in to other talk shows in progress to get an idea for your own show.

I’m planning to host a Learning Strategies Talk Show.  I’ll post up the time when I get it scheduled.  I’m really interested in others who would like to join in and share the show.  Just add a comment or drop me a note at learningpaths@gmail.com.

Anyone else doing a show like this or now of other services like this one?  I’d like to know that too!

I just found another site Talkshoe.com
