Exactly what is a 'Professional'?

I recently agreed to give a talk to a group of IT Professionals entitled "Professionalism in IT, does it matter?". During the talk there was much consternation when, after posing a series of questions to the audience, I told them that 'none of you are IT professionals' - and this to a seasoned audience of senior practitioners in the industry.My justification for making that bold statement was not that this audience was made up of incompetent, untrustworthy amateurs, rather that none of them…See More

Learning 2.0 a step too far for public education?

Before I began my research in to the effectiveness of social computing for workplace learning (a.k.a., Learning 2.0 in the Enterprise) I had begun to form a view that public sector education wasn't embracing technology enabled social learning.
