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

A few days ago my Internet Time Alliance colleague, Harold Jarche, shared this article, written by Deb Lavoy, with me: Social Business Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Does, Neither Does Enterprise 2.0.

“Learning the new” vs “Learning the old”

Jane Hart

For many people the word “learning” is synonymous with studying, lessons, classes, etc – because that is how we have been conditioned to believe how “learning” happens. We also need to learn the new.

Are you supporting new fashioned learning in the workplace?

Jane Hart

So what is “new fashioned” learning? Well let’s start by thinking about what “old fashioned” learning is? Old-fashioned” learning is being taught or trained – that is having all you need to know neatly packaged up in a course or programme or workshop or e-learning course.

This is a post in a series that I am writing about how the future role of L&D is moving from “packaging learning” to “scaffolding learning”. But what these both have in common is that they are still a “ managed learning ” process. Social learning

70:20:10 - A Framework for High Performance Development Practices

Charles Jennings

Others use it more strategically as a way to help them rethink and reposition their wider learning philosophies. Of course structured and directed ‘formal’ learning can help, but it rarely, if ever, provides the complete answer.

Fostering connections by letting go

Harold Jarche

The IBM study shows that CEOs and the companies they manage must constantly evolve to stay competitive. Partners, suppliers, employees and customers want CEOs to communicate with them on a personal level to build trust and to help align them to the organization’s strategy.

Social snake oil

Harold Jarche

Knowledge management (KM) was a most promising field until it was hijacked by software vendors who were selling IT systems for six figures. Personal Knowledge Management is one counter movement to centralized document repositories. I saw this happen with e-learning.

Harold Jarche

In a complex world the optimal social form is the multi-organizational network and emergent practices must be continuously developed through cooperation. He or she cannot learn and adapt as fast as a cooperative network. Part of this is in narrating one’s work and learning.

70:20:10 and the Learning Curve

Clark Quinn

Charles Jennings

ASTD data suggests US companies spent $164billion on employee learning and development in 2012 saying that ‘ despite a continuously changing economic environment, organizations remain committed to training and development’. Learning in the workflow is the way forward.

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. They won’t look like the learning management systems installed in the vast majority of organisations across the world today.

PKM and MOOC

Harold Jarche

In the workplace, thinking of co-workers as “learners” actually may be a barrier to learning.
