Social Networks

Clark Quinn

This week we looked at Social Networks. Here are some thoughts on this topic, especially thoughts around social networks for learning. Starting with Social Networking was a blessing and a curse. Social networks have a tendency to be a bit messy. Virginia Yonkers told us - I would like to know how to manage the information flows in social networks. How do we do this in the social network environment?

Social Networking

Tony Karrer

I've run across a couple of interesting posts recently that seem to have spawned from a Business Week article - Scaling the Social Web. Hasn't eBay had social networking features for a long time? And doesn't Flickr (images), del.icio.us (bookmarks), etc. all have a social networking aspect to them? The point is that its probably natural for lots of sites to have social networking type features and functions for visitors.

Sharing

Technology Enhanced Learning Blog

I wanted to reflect a little on my own ‘sharing’ here, and try and split the sharing from social media, if possible. My network or followers and those I follow grows and changes all the time, therefore my exposure to new ideas or tools does too.

and the rapid rise of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other communications platforms have made one thing abundantly clear: Everything is social. As the workforce grows to include more Millennials – digital natives who spend nearly four hours per day on social networking sites – the social impact on training cannot be overstated. Collaborating via wikis both helps learners develop personal learning networks and documents the collective knowledge in the organization.

The workshop description is: A Revolution in Workplace Learning Tools such as blogs, wikis, social networks, social bookmarking, and RSS readers are revolutionizing formal and informal workplace learning. Just wanted to announce that I'll be doing a full-day workshop in Cincinnati (actually in nearby Kentucky) for the Greater Cincinnati ASTD on July 15.
