OCTOBER 13, 2010 5 Steps to Enterprise Social Learning
Step 1 – Strategize : There is no one “right” Social Learning strategy, and there is no one right way to develop one. The approach to strategy development depends on several factors such as your organizational structure, existing learning programs, organizational learning culture, and the value executives place on informal learning. The strategy should paint a compelling picture of the future state of Social Learning, clearly articulate the business case for change, and outline the roadmap for how you will get from “here” to “there” (including what must change, stop, and continue).

APRIL 1, 2009 What is Social Learning?
Here is my attempt to define Social Learning for non technical people who have had virtually no experience with social media or software. Most of what we learn, we learn from other people – from conversing with others – and networks promote those conversations. Social Learning can create more powerful and enduring learning experiences through the use of online communities and networks , where learners are encouraged to co- create , collaborate and share knowledge and fully participate in their learning. Social Learning is enabled by the use of Enterprise Social Software. .

Should online communities have a better reputation? Should Should you join and participate in one more online community? Are online communities profoundly changing the world for the better? Here are four examples of how online communities have changed my world: I was organizing a conference in London UK for a client.

The first time we met in person was at the conference.

MARCH 1, 2010 Verifying Virtual Value
“Learning via social networks and other Web 2.0 tools is anything but formal. Yet, when it comes to measuring its value, a structured approach should still apply. How can learning leaders assess whether the benefits live up to the hype? – CLO Magazine March 2010 Issue. co-wrote an article with Craig Mindrum about verifying the virtual value of networked learning. . At this time, however, the enthusiasm for networked learning isn’t necessarily shared by everyone. Here is a link to the article: Verifying Virtual Value (article in CLO Magazine March 2010 Issue).

DARETOSHARE Free, High Quality, Reusable Content
| SATURDAY, AUGUST 22, 2009
What would you say if I told you that I know where you can find some FREE , HIGH QUALITY , and REUSABLE courses, modules, and lesson plans? I guess your answer depends on who you are. A company or person that sells “course or module development, books, and “training courses might not like knowing that their “competition is giving “it away for free. People who have the words “learning and development or “training in their job title might not like knowing that someone else is willing to do “the job for free. My dissertation proved this. MORE >>
DARETOSHARE Finding In-House Experts Isn’t Easy
| FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2009
Why is it so difficult to quickly find someone in my organization to answer a pressing question, provide advice about a procedure, explain how to use some software, or tell me where to find an expert, course, or document? rely on my network to connect me to other people and information because I cannot know and will not try to know everything. I use the internal “knowledge management” and “learning management” systems. I am not completely helpless. But sometimes I just don’t know what I don’t know and I need input from an expert. know there are in-house experts in my organization. MORE >>

The Business Case for Social Learning. Have you heard of the “capability recession? For many organizations, the economic downturn is having a noticeably negative effect on workforce productivity, engagement and performance.

DARETOSHARE Measuring Networked (or Social) Learning
| THURSDAY, APRIL 9, 2009
I am often asked by business leaders to describe what we intend to measure in order to understand, manage, and improve the networked (or social) learning eco-system. There is interest in knowing how we will prove networked learning, turn potential chaos into something that is more certain and efficient, and to get some kind of “history about the learning and development for individuals and organizations. We do not want to take a traditional ‘Learning Management System appraoch and treat networked learning as formal training. Please feel free to share your ideas and suggestions. MORE >>
DARETOSHARE Social Sensitivity Leads to High Performing Groups
| THURSDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2010
Here is a transcript from a recent 60 second science report from the Scientific American: Groups with Good Social Skills Outperform the Merely Smart. Groups of two to five members who interacted with each other best outperformed groups whose individual members had higher intelligence scores. Karen Hopkin reports: If Alice is smart, and Bob’s even smarter, working together they would A) be twice as smart, B) be half as smart or C) form a task force and get nothing done. According to new research, the answer is none of the above. It would actually depend on how well they get along. MORE >>
