2011 Trend Number 2 – Social Networks

Facebook? Twitter? Blogs? Can we use these in the learning process?

More organizations used social media in 2010, using shared workspaces, social networks and wikis to deliver learning and development. This trend will continue into 2011.

“Social learning will not replace training and employee development, but it can accomplish what traditional approaches often cannot. It can supplement instruction with collaboration and co-creation, and in doing so, blur the boundary between the instructor and the instructed. It can bring far-flung employees together into new communities in which they can not only learn from one another, but also fashion new offerings for customers. In short, social media can change the way your company works.” Daniel Pink (foreward in The New Social Learning written by Tony Bingham and Marcia Conner)
