From “learning technologies” to “social technologies”

Jane Hart

Social technologies now play a big part in everything we do, and it is quite clear that many knowledge workers use a variety of social tools and networks not only to help them get work done, but also to learn efficiently while on the job. These might be proprietary systems like Jive , Podio , Yammer , Socialcast , or open source software, like WordPress / Buddypress or Elgg.

The Other 90% of Learning

Jay Cross

Working Smarter eFieldbook $12

Jay Cross

Knowledge work and learning to work smarter are becoming indistinguishable. It needn’t be this way, particularly since knowledge work and learning are nearly indistinguishable. Industrial age workers created value in factories. Knowledge workers create value in workscapes. In most cases, the knowledge work pays the freight; the informal learning comes along for the ride. A sound workscape environment empowers workers to be all that they can be.
