SOCIAL COLLABORATION: Everything Old is New Again!
What has changed is how we learn. Technology now allows us to learn from anyone — anytime — anywhere — often with a mobile device or iPad in our hands.
Is there resistance to this? You bet! Many are still wedded to the institutional learning models of the industrial era. The philosophy was (and is!), “here is what we need you to know to do what others want you to do.”
For employees who are not as comfortable with screens large and small, this new way of learning can be daunting. Many worry that all face-to-face or classroom interaction is going to disappear. This won’t happen. What will happen is more blended learning using all kinds of tools.
Outstanding teachers and trainers have always known their students know at least as much as they do, if not more. Social Learning and the technology that accompanies it now allows everyone to be a collaborator, a teacher, and a learner!
