Using Social Media to Drive Social Learning Infographic
Many talent development professionals believe that social media cannot be separated from social learning. The Using Social Media to Drive Social Learning Infographic graphically presents the results of “Learners of the Future: Taking Action Today to Prevent Tomorrow’s Talent Crisis” - a recent research by ATD and i4cp to examine what role can the L&D function play in encouraging collaboration between learners. True, there are challenges to this, especially because all organizational environments are not hospitable to the growth of social approaches. Social communities of practice that are tied to courses, and supplemented by formal and informal learning events can result in a self-propagating and competitive learning environment. So far, hi-tech organizations have been at the forefront of such format. It is wait and watch until governmental organizations too overcome their security concerns and embrace social learning.
