An introduction to Scaffolded Social Learning

“What is Social Learning?

Formal learning is what we do in classrooms, in eLearning modules, in workbooks. Formal learning is any type of learning that is written and delivered by the Organisation and sent out to people to complete. Formal learning is what many organisations rely on to get people to learn ‘stuff‘.

Social Learning is about the conversations that surround this: it’s about the wisdom of the community and the wealth of experience that this is founded upon. Social Learning is about helping each other, building learning networks, solving problems together and sharing stories. This is sometimes called ‘tacit‘ or ‘tribal‘ knowledge, and it’s the things you already know, alongside what everyone you know knows.”

Interestingly, i wouldn’t have chosen all of these myself, but they represent the grounded reality of this community.

Future Trends and Innovations in Learning

Video: a range of experiences within the group, from some organisations starting to develop platforms and capability to use ‘democratised’ video, whilst for others it’s new, or a distant dream. Democratised? Absolutely: older models of ‘broadcast’ video are well known in most organisations, but the potential in the Social Age is to tie into the tacit, tribal knowledge of the organisation by encouraging devolved experts to record and share their experience. To get this to work well, we have to consider aspects of social scoring and reward, but it’s an area with great potential.

Tratamiento: una dosis de videojuegos por la mañana y otra antes de acostarte

“En dosis adecuadas, contribuyen a prevenir la pérdida de habilidades cognitivas en ancianos, mejorar los casos de autismo y ayudar a los niños con déficit de atención.
