In another related HBR article with an interesting title, We Should Want Robots to Take Some Jobs , the writer makes a valid point: “ In the task-centered economy humans have no value beyond the tasks they perform.

Social Learning Cannot Be A Bolt-On Strategy

Learnnovators

I recently wrote about the challenges of integrating social learning in the workplace. Even as I was mulling over the topic and browsing through Dion Hinchcliffe’s posts for insights on social business, I had a moment of epiphany. Social Learning and social business go hand in hand. To facilitate social learning, an organization has to become a social business first. Becoming a truly social business is an inside out change.

From Learning Management to Personal Knowledge Management

Jane Hart

12 features of supporting social collaboration in the workplace

Jane Hart

I am often asked how to support social collaboration in the workplace. As I showed in my recent blog post , there are some big differences between learning in an e-business and learning in a social/collaborative business.

Others use it more strategically as a way to help them rethink and reposition their wider learning philosophies. The 70:20:10 framework is a simple concept that has developed from work carried out by various researchers over the past half-century that suggests a one-dimensional focus on structured training and development – a rut that many organisations had fallen into – misses the opportunity to exploit learning and development where most of it happens, which is within the workflow.

The key to informal learning is autonomy

Jane Hart

Jay Cross, the author of the 2007 seminal book, Informal Learning, Rediscovering the Natural Pathways that Inspire Innovation and Performance , recently wrote a blog post in which he explained that although there has been a lot of talk about “informal learning” in the last five years, there has been very little action. He writes: “I thought I had made a sound business case for investing more in informal learning, but few organizations changed their ways.

I am a huge believer of the practice because I have experienced the effect first hand. It has helped me to develop my personal learning network (PLN) and enabled my PKM.
