Teens aren’t abandoning “social” - they’re just using the word correctly

Teens aren’t abandoning “social” - they’re just using the word correctly | mediated learning & digital media for professionals | Scoop.it

[Excerpt] "Kids aren’t leaving social networks. They’re redefining the word “social.” Rather, they’re actually using the word with the intent of its original meaning: making contact with other human beings. Communicating. Back-and-forth, fairly immediate dialogue. Most of it digitally. But most of it with the intent of a conversation where two (or more) people are exchanging information and emotion. Not posting it. Exchanging it. That's social."

sarspri's insight:

Interesting data from Piper Jaffray; it would be interesting to compare it the Pew Internet and American Life data. 

 

Pinpoints various human activities and behaviors and how the 'human element' is what drives technology adoption and use.

The Knowledge Sharing Paradox – Ownership or Thought Leadership?

The Knowledge Sharing Paradox – Ownership or Thought Leadership? | mediated learning & digital media for professionals | Scoop.it

[Excerpt] "Our goal as enterprise learning experts is to find the most effective way to change audience behavior to align with a certain business objective. Extremely relevant to this practice is the ever-changing ways in which people communicate and learn from each other. If we want a learner to accept or adopt a certain change in behavior, it would make sense that we need to structure a corporate learning experience as closely as possible to those experiences sought out by that learner on their own time.

 

Therefore, because the large majority of learning has been revealed to occur through on-the-job and social experiences, not through formal training channels, we must enable and foster these more informal experiences to occur within the workplace."

sarspri's insight:

Though this was written for an audience of corporate trainers (or "enterprise learning experts"), the importance of informal learning opportunities and networks is just as important and applicable within higher education and other learning contexts. 

 

These concepts are essential for the development of networked language teaching professionals.
