Build an Enterprise Learning Network in your Enterprise Social Network and integrate social learning in the workplace « Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies

Margaret Driscoll, Learning Organization Librarian's insight:

"The annual Top 100 Tools for Learning survey (now in its 7th year) also shows that people are increasingly using social tools for their own professional learning, e.g. They are using social networks to build a trusted network of friends and colleagues (often referred to as a Personal Learning Network or PLN) where they can ask and answer questions of one another, exchange resources and ideas, brainstorm and solve problems, keep up to date with they are doing, as well as learn from one another – often without realising it They are using social tools to “learn the new” and keep up with what is happening in their industry and profession. They are using social tools to find immediate solutions to their everyday performance problems. They are using social tools to participate in wider open educational opportunities online, e.g. MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses). They are using social tools to share what they find, learn and create and know with others."

Three Ways to Teach Yourself Something New

Three Ways to Teach Yourself Something New | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

If you look closely at people who are succeeding in this new digital world of work, you’ll notice they have something in common: they’re fast learners and they’re willing to adapt. If you want to grow as a person and a worker and if you want to gain skills that will help you take that next step in your career, you’ll probably have to learn those skills on your own.


In the post-recession workplace, your company probably isn’t going to send you to a conference so you can learn that new skill that will make you an even more valuable employee … Your boss probably doesn’t have time to hold your hand as you figure out how to use a new tool that will make your team more efficient. And it’s unlikely you’ll be encouraged to spend your workday focusing on forward-looking, innovative projects that will really help you grow.

"Many of us don’t value taking the time for intentional learning within our organizations.  We are so focused on getting things done, checking it off the to do list and the forward momentum that it requires, that we miss an important opportunity to hit the pause button, reflect, and improve process.   Being intentional about learning can also help an organization scale effectively."

Report: Digital Badges Help Learners Demonstrate Accomplishments, Need ... - T.H.E. Journal | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

Digital badges can help students pursue personal learning pathways and provide a standardized platform for learners to demonstrate their accomplishments, according to a new report from the Alliance for Excellent Education and the Mozilla Foundation.

 

The report, "Expanding Education and Workforce Opportunities Through Digital Badges," examines how digital badges can be used to improve student learning and outcomes. It explains what digital badges are and how they work, provides examples of digital badges that have already been implemented, and speculates on the future of the system.

According to the report, digital badges are "credentials that represent skills, interests, and achievements earned by an individual through specific projects, programs, courses, and other activities." They provide a digital hyperlink to information about the badge's associated skills and the projects or tasks the badge holder has completed to earn it.

Digital badges may be as unknown to others as they are to me. Now I have a good chance to get rid of my ignorance :-).

According to the report, digital badges are "credentials that represent skills, interests, and achievements earned by an individual through specific projects, programs, courses, and other activities." They provide a digital hyperlink to information about the badge's associated skills and the projects or tasks the badge holder has completed to earn it.

“Digital badges are making anytime, anywhere learning a reality for learners of all ages who want to pursue their interests with tangible results in real time,” said Bob Wise, president of the Alliance for Excellent Education and former governor of West Virginia, in a prepared statement. “Badges bridge the divide between formal and informal education, and they have the power to transform competency-based learning and hiring practices.”
