The differences between learning in an e-business and learning in a social business

Jane Hart

Working and learning in Stages 1-4 is based upon a Taylorist , industrial age mindset. Although a “social business” is powered by new social technologies, it is not the technology itself that makes the difference, it’s not about layering social approaches on the old industrial age thinking, but a fresh, new mindset and approach to working and learning. Collaborative Working & Learning. Learning =Working, Working=Learning.

Tool Set 2009

Tony Karrer

I thought I'd kick off this year by posting a series of posts on topics related to tools and methods for work and learning. Setting up a SharePoint for a community or work team is very different from teaching them about Personal Learning. In fact, the lack of attention to this topic was the reason I founded Work Literacy in June of 2008. You need to understand your choices, try new methods and tools and adopting practices that improve your work and learning skills.

Why Content Curation Should be in Your Skillset

Jay Cross

Instead of satisfying art lovers, corporate curation saves enormous amounts of time, keeps teams on the same page, and equips everyone with the latest insights. Curation helps individuals keep professional skills sharp, improve critical thinking, earn professional recognition, build reputation, grow personal networks, and “work out loud.” Google for “Future of Conferences” and my work comes up #2. Recruit someone to curate news to share with everyone on the team.
