I’m in a session on social learning at #hrtechconf, lead by Jeanne Meister author of The 2020 Workplace. The audience is wrestling with what is social learning. As someone who has spent a little time focused on this recently, here’s how I define it.

The text version:

Social media is technology used to engage three or more people.
Social learning is participating with others to make sense of new ideas.
What’s new is how powerfully they work together.

That work for you?

If this helps you, you might want to add this slide to your presentations when you want to explain social learning to others. Learn with them, after all. You might want to get a copy of The New Social Learning, too.
