Learning with 'e's

Recently I wrote about collaborative learning spaces , and argued that we are entering unfamiliar territory. The boundaries of informal and formal spaces have blurred significantly, as have the boundaries between the real and the virtual.

All of these aspects of learning are active.

How to Replace Top-down Training with Collaborative Learning (2)

Jay Cross

It’s not that seasoned and elder employees weren’t learning; we all learn all the time. Rather, they weren’t learning as well as they might.

Collaboration is where two or more people work together to achieve a common objective. In education, the common objective is usually to learn specific content, skills or competencies within defined areas.

Does the term “social learning” need to be evolved to move beyond the perception that it is a license for employees to play rather than a genuine way of learning?
