John Brighton's insight:
Excellent use of Yammer at Xerox, as we begin at the TCDSB we can look to Xerox for inspiration.
Yammeris an enterprise social network which offers business professionals the chance to communicate and share content (e.g. PowerPoint files) securely in the form of a private social network. It can be used not only for communication within an organization but also for communication between certain departments for a more personalized service which is often necessary for sensitive departments like Business Intelligence and R&D.
I think off Yammer as our departmental email. It allows us to post files, issues, agendas, observations and research. We have used the poll feature as in an educational capacity to.Inform and invoke critical thinking schools. With teams in two locations, Yammer helps to keep us informed on departmental activities. With this compendium of information, Yammeis reads like a newspaper highlighting items of interest to our teams.
