What worked twenty years ago doesn’t work well in the social, always-on, networked world of business we now inhabit.

The Social C-Suite

CLO Magazine

If the C-suite increases its social media use internally and externally, it could be used as a tool to impact organizational competence. The state of employee engagement is a troubling organizational predicament, and many leaders wonder whether internal social media and social learning could help to drive it: Should the C-suite become more involved? How does its use by the C-suite affect adoption of social learning in the organization? There are a few reasons why the C-suite isn’t using social media more inside organizations. Be ready to fail.

Big Question for June - Where are the Examples of eLearning?

MyFace or SpaceBook?

Learning with e's

Apparently your choice of social networking site indicates what social class you belong to. A recent US research project (by a PhD student mind you) has reported that users of FaceBook are generally toffs from wealthier homes and are more likely to study in further/higher education than that great unwashed working class lot who like using MySpace. And what about those who use Bebo - are they part of a particular social class, or are they just little oiks who couldn't design a tasteful personal space to save their lives? So it's official. Well, fancy that.
