Social Media vs. Social Learning

Integrated Learnings

Most of us have Facebook accounts and collaborate with friends, family and colleagues through this media. We also use tools such as Twitter, LinkedIn and other social media. In a lot of cases, we are using internal corporate social media tools to collaborate. As a learning professional, I have been pondering this question a lot. 2-- Share “real world” learnings with each other after the training is complete. By Dean Hawkinson.

How Social Networks Can Harness the Power of Weak Ties | Social.

Dashe & Thomson

The power of tools like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Yammer, are pretty astounding. A lot of the Social Media Mavens , however, are really ranting, not about the technology, but about the human dynamics related to social networking. They’re sources of novelty and innovation (because they know quite different things than we do) and bridges to other social networks (because they know quite different people than we do).

Drivers of Yammer use in the corporate sector

E-Learning Provocateur

Yammer has been quite a success at my workplace. Every so often I’m asked by a peer at another company what they can do to increase the use of Yammer in their own organisation. So I recently invited 14 community managers from around the world to rate the key factors that drive Yammer use in their respective organisations. These enthusiastic users encourage the use of Yammer with their colleagues across the business.

Social Media’s Impact on Workplace Communication & Learning

G-Cube

Social Media is here to stay. Social Networking surely has its benefits. As Herojit Sharing feels, ‘My personal experience proved that whenever I interact with my client on Facebook its a completely different way of communicating and sharing ideas freely as compared to our official discussion board and Skype etc. LinkedIn can facilitate direct communication with top-level management. I’ve been on FB for 4 years and have learned “literally nothing”.

Practical Ways to Design Social Media Into Your Training Programs

Mindflash

There is a lot of talk about using social media in training or about social learning in the workplace, but frankly there is not a lot of action. Learning experience designers need to break free from the gravitational pull of “we have always done it this way&# and try something new. Since spring of this year, I have designed several learning programs using Yammer with good results. Transfer Some Lectures to the Social Network.

How to Save ‘Social Learning’ Before We Destroy It

Mindflash

Social Learning is a term that is rapidly spreading throughout the learning and performance field. Don’t get me wrong; I’m a big believer in the natural learning that occurs through social interactions. I also think it’s wonderful that our profession is starting to focus more on the learning that naturally takes place within the day-to-day activity of the workplace. What Exactly Is Social Learning?

Why I left Linkedin

Saffron Interactive

A couple of months back I made the decision to delete my LinkedIn profile, a decision greeted with incredulity from all quarters. By “one”, Tom was referring to LinkedIn’s classification as a “social media” platform, lumped in with Facebook, Twitter, Yammer, MySpace, Bebo, Friendster and the rest. What sets LinkedIn apart is that it’s considered to be the professional network; a platform you can use to build your career, not your social life.

The influence of social media for learning - technology is more than just a means to a goal

Social technology is a driving force behind social learning. And even within organizations and networks the choice of (social) technology is extremely important and can be a factor determining success or failure.

That is a huge innovation in learning driven by the technology of social media.

Training and Social Media Taught Me to Tie a Tie

This method of knowledge sharing has worked fine for years (because there were really no other options) but I think with the momentum of social media, employees are going to push to change this.

Can Learnist Hold the Key to Enterprise Social Learning?

Dashe & Thomson

I really enjoy following the learning frontier, reading about and analyzing the latest developments in learning tools and methodologies. Augmented reality has a potential to revolutionize learning because of its ability to overlay helpful information not normally seen by the naked eye onto the objects we view. Learnist describes itself as a tool for “people helping other people learn. Learn something, teach something.”

Three Simple Ways to Get Started with Social Learning

Mindflash

Social learning a lot of us hear a lot these days — we know, vaguely, what it is, and we know that it’s happening, whether we like it or not, every day. And yet the vast majority of our money and energy goes toward formal training programs, not these social, off-the-cuff initiatives. For one, formal training is what we know best, so it makes sense that learning and development professionals gravitate toward it. What is Social Learning, Again?

A circular argument

E-Learning Provocateur

It’s Google’s trump card against the likes of Facebook and Twitter. The achilles heel of Facebook is that its friending system is binary: either you are my friend or you are not. Indeed, Facebook has a “friends list&# feature which allows you to filter your incoming news feed. Granted, I’m no Facebook expert, so maybe this can be done. But that’s the point: so much about Facebook is onerous and secretive. All good for Yammer, right?

Developing Leaders in the Facebook Age

CLO Magazine

But that doesn’t mean technology is all leaders need to learn. The impact of social media has complicated matters. How we connect — in person, through blogs, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, or through other methods of online collaboration — says more about us than we may realize. Informal learning from peers, mentors and supervisors can be just as impactful, if not more so. Learning and development doesn’t have to happen in a classroom.

Get Started in Social Learning in 5 Steps (Without Spending a Dime)

Mindflash

Social learning is not new, but we still do not know what it is. Albert Bandura wrote a book called Social Learning Theory in 1977, and he didn’t even have a Facebook account. Bandura wrote that people learn through observation of other people. So social learning is about watching others and doing what they do? That was social learning then. Today it’s about using social media in our training, right?

Shifting from Trainer to Community Manager

But where does this leave the learning and development department? Much maligned after years of instructor led training, powerpoint presentations, and “click next” eLearning courses, it’s time for Learning and Development to step up.
