social learning is innate

Harold Jarche

Social learning is a key theme of mine because imitation is how we learn as a species. Social learning is best explained by Albert Bandura, recognized as the most eminent psychologist of the modern era. 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. Making our organizations open to social learning fosters innovation.

Harold Jarche

Social learning is the process by which groups of people cooperate to learn with and from each other. The network era is creating a historic reversal of education, as discourse replaces institutions, and social learning in knowledge networks obsolesces many aspects of organizational training. I have learned by facilitating dozens of online workshops that the social aspect is the most important. From each, I learn a little more. Learning PK

complexity and social learning

Harold Jarche

As we transition from a market to a network economy, complexity will increase due to our hyper-connectedness. Managing in complex adaptive systems means influencing possibilities rather than striving for predictability (good or best practices).

This past Sunday, around 3:30pm in the afternoon, the 8 year-old cracks open a formal learning asset (a book on science experiments) and shouts, “Hey Cate, let’s do an experiment.”.

Harold Jarche

A vital meta-learning skill: how to find the answer you need, online or off.” Is it in our organizational filing systems and intranets, or rather on the Web or in our professional social networks?

Social Learning, Strategically

Clark Quinn

Increasingly, as I look around, I see folks addressing learning technology tactics; they’ll make a mobile app, they’ll try out a simulation game, they’ll put in a portal.
