The difference between social learning and social collaboration

In my framework of Modern Workplace Learning (see diagram on right) I use the term s ocial collaboration to label an important new element of work of the modern-day L&D department. I deliberately chose not to label it s ocial learning.

Jane Hart’s Social Learning Handbook

Clark Quinn

Having previously reviewed Marcia Conner and Tony Bingham’s The New Social Learning , and Jane Bozarth’s Social Media for Trainers , I have now received my copy of Jane Hart’s Social Learning Handbook. Jane’s book is very much about making the case for social learning in the workplace, as the first section details. This is largely as an adjunct to formal learning, rather than focusing on social media for formal learning.

LMS and Social Learning

Tony Karrer

As a follow on to the discussion of social learning and formal learning in Long Live … great post by BJ Schone - Have LMSs Jumped The Shark? I constantly hear people (across many organizations) complain about their learning management system (LMS).

Social Learning doesn’t mean what you think it does: PART TWO

Jane Hart

Yesterday, in my first posting on this topic, I showed how “social learning” is not just about a new training trend or about adding social media into the “blend&# or acquiring the latest Social Learning Management System, but a fundamental change in how we need to view workplace learning.

Social Learning Tools Should Not be Separate from Enterprise 2.0

3 – L&D roles to support learning at work

Learning in the Modern Workplace is much MORE than courses and resources

The changing role of L&D: from “packaging” to “scaffolding” plus “social capability building”

Why support self-organized learning in the workplace?

Jane Hart

I recently shared a diagram of what it might look like to move from a focus on organizing and managing training, to helping individuals and teams self-organize in the workplace? Because that is how today’s Smart Workers (SW) prefer to learn.

Emerging new roles for learning and performance professionals

Jane Hart

Over the last week or so I have been posting about how (I think) the workplace learning landscape is changing. And as more and more organisations do this, it means we are seeing the emergence of some new “learning and performance professional” roles in the workplace.

The role of the L&D function IS changing.

Although many training teams added staff during the year, these additions were outpaced by faster growth in learning populations. This trend is one sign of the changing role of the L&D function, which no longer is “the place” for learning. Social learning

The Future of Work and Learning 2: Chatbots

Jane Hart

In my previous post I looked at how I believe Professional Ecosystems are the future of work and learning , and how organisations (and L&D) might support them. Their purpose is also to learn from you as they chat with you so that they can provide you with better answers to your questions.

Supporting all the ways people learn at work

Jane Hart

In my previous post I showed how people learn at work in a multitude of ways. In this post I want to show how organisations are supporting learning more widely across the organisation. 1) This group of initiatives are an evolution of conventional classroom training and e-learning.

Supporting workplace learning in the network era is more than delivering courses through a LMS

Survey: Are you ready, willing and able to support learning in the new social workplace?

Jane Hart

Some time ago I wrote a blog post about how I believed that as social businesses emerge, and new social and collaboration platforms (or social intranets) are introduced into enterprises, L&D will have an extended role in the organisation in order to support the new community and collaboration skills that will be required to underpin a successul social business initiative. (In In this way, then Social Collaboration becomes the missing piece of the L&D jigsaw.

A very insightful framework

Clark Quinn

So when I parsed her “from training to modern workplace learning”, it resonated in many ways. And that’s about rethinking training to be about transformative experience design, performance support to be included, and informal learning to be also addressed.

Contexts By Cognitions

Clark Quinn

So, in my last post , I talked about exploring the links between cognitions on the one hand (situated, distributed, social), and contexts (aligning with how we think, work, & learn). I generated the first diagram several days ago and had been iterating on it, but not today.

Autonomy and Value in Social and Workplace Learning

Charles Jennings

My colleague Jane Hart recently shared the diagram below on her blog. It shows the relationship between relative value and relative autonomy as they relate to different approaches to learning in the modern workplace.

70:20:10 - Beyond the Blend

Charles Jennings

The term ‘blended learning’ first appeared in the late-1990s when web-based learning solutions started to become more widely used and were integrated on one way or another with face-to-face methods. There are many other examples of ‘blending’ learning stretching back into the past, too.

70:20:10 and the Learning Curve

Clark Quinn

My colleague Charles Jennings recently posted on the value of autonomous learning (worth reading!), sparked by a diagram provided by another ITA colleague, Jane Hart (that I also thought was insightful). The point was that the closer to the work that learning is, the more value.

Managing Learning?

Charles Jennings

Learning can only be managed by the individual in whose head the learning is occurring. But they can’t manage the learning process for you. One of which is “if learning is managed by the learner, what will the technologies that support her look like in the next 3, 5, 10 years?”

Get outside the disciplinary box

Harold Jarche

I like the 2 X 2 diagram showing how increasing complexity makes us dependent on creative individuals and increasing collectivity makes us dependent on more processes. I don’t think that exists yet, though many are experimenting with frameworks like Social Business or Enterprise 2.0.

Interestingly, the diagram I designed to accompany the post and communicate the concept was not well received.
