The March Big Question from Learning Circuits is What will workplace learning look like in 10 years?

Informal Learning - 2010

eLearning Cyclops

Informal learning (a.k.a. social learning) grew immensely in 2009. Now I know there are corporate training departments that have embraced informal learning, but those are the more innovative companies.

Be strategic when identifying social media tools, how they will be implemented, and how you can facilitate learning within the media.
