  • Here to talk about Social Learning, which is about how to use the social side of your organization to fuel development and growth. This discussion usually focuses on the learning side with lots of tactics for how to apply technology to learning. The social side may be more important because without good connection, the social side will fail. If the social piece fails, your learning tactics aren’t of much use. Example: expensive TV and Digital Cable but without a quality connection, the benefit of both is lost or highly diminished. So, we need to think about how to cultivate connection within our organization.
