Integrating Social Learning In The Workplace

Learnnovators

I have been writing about social learning and its related concepts – communities of practices , working out loud and skills for the networked world for quite some time now. Social learning has become a buzzword in the workplace learning space, and every other organization is claiming to have “social learning” as a part of the mix. The catch is that “social learning” cannot just be implemented or enforced.

Traditionally, you might have a system that relies on trainers who have a series of presentation slides filled with all the relevant knowledge needing to be transferred to the trainees. One way that we can accomplish this is through a knowledge management system.

How Social Learning is Powering Up Today’s Workplaces

Learning would be exceedingly laborious, not to mention hazardous, if people had to rely solely on the effects of their own actions to inform them what to do. Fortunately, most human behaviour is learned observationally through modelling; from observing others one forms an idea of how new behaviours are performed, and on later occasions this coded information serves as a guide for action.” ” – Albert Bandura (Originator of Social Learning Theory). “

PKM is our part of the social learning contract

Jane Hart

Yesterday, Harold Jarche shared the image on the right, in his post To learn, we must do. Whereas most people are concerning themselves with the new social and collaboration technologies, or how to get people to collaborate, for me the key to successful social learning is how the individual engages in his/her networks and contributes what s/he has learned or is learning along the way. PKM is therefore the key to successful social learning.

Social play can be Social Learning

Ideaon

I have been asked a half-dozen times about my thoughts on Social Learning within corporations. At work we do use social tools such as Skype, Yahoo Messenger and YouTube for learning purposes. When I ask about social learning in the work place, I normally get blank stares from potential clients, “Do you mean I should allow my employees play on Facebook at work?” This makes me wonder whether everyone is classifying social learning as social playing.

The Twitter Chat Conundrum (Part One)

All usually, “learning” related. For learning? Do we use chats for increased knowledge? To create more value, where an hour after the chat I’m still thinking about the topic and what I learned. Don’t get me wrong, chats are very important to growth of learning and development and in no way am I saying the conversation needs to stop. We could learn from social media managers and build an events calendar.

Social Learning doesn’t mean what you think it does!

Social media does not always equal social learning

Connect Thinking

I was recently asked to define social media. Social learning , on the other hand, is learning that happens through social exchanges and activities, whether the exchange is motivated for personal reasons or for larger collective purposes (adapted from Aaron Silvers , T&D January 2012). Okay, so the simple difference between the two definitions is social media = content, social learning = learning through exchange.

Over the past few years, the need to become a social business and to promote enterprise-wide collaboration have taken hold in many organizations.

Easy peasy ways to apply social learning for effective online learning

ProProfs

When it comes to learning in general, maintaining social learning has always been an important part of adopting new information and transforming it into long-term knowledge. In simple words, social presence refers to all the knowledge a person accumulates by watching other people’s behavior. Lately, people have been increasingly paying attention to social learning not only in the terms of traditional learning but in online learning as well.

Do you know your E-learning Buckets?

Integrated Learnings

I've discovered recently I don't like the term e-learning. This is because I recently had to go through the process of understanding what salary you pay someone who is an e-learning developer. This is because everyone has a different idea of what e-learning is and what it takes to develop it. So if you tell me you are an e-learning expert, it means nothing to me. The term e-learning covers a wide swath of teaching and learning using digital media.

I Believe in the Many Emerging Roles for Learning and Development Professionals

Tom Spiglanin

The 70:20:10 framework helps to put the work of learning and development (L&D) organizations into perspective within the whole of employee learning ( previous article ). That leaves the question of what, if anything, should L&D do to facilitate the over 90% of learning that takes place outside of its traditional role. For just as long, employees have also been learning experientially and socially, without the help of a training organization.

Ten Things I Believe About Workplace Learning

Tom Spiglanin

For nearly three years, I’ve been exploring social learning, informal learning, and the changing workplace. My beliefs about workplace learning have evolved quite a bit over those years, partly by experimenting with new ideas and learning from the results, both positive and negative. I’ve also grown by narrating what I learn here, whether you call that learning out loud, working out loud, or showing my work.

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

Jane Hart

In my recent webinar I shared a slide that showed the 5 stages of workplace learning. This has attracted a lot of interest, and I’ve been asked to talk more about the differences between “learning” in Stages 1-4 and Stage 5. Working and learning in Stages 1-4 is based upon a Taylorist , industrial age mindset. Similarly e-learning was also about automating traditional training practices. So whilst e-business is about automation, social business is about innovation.
