Social Media and Instant Learning

A critical value provided by Social Media is ‘instant learning’ though this value is currently overlooked.
Social Media and Instant learning are important to our two core value of;
- Wayfinding for Social Media, Web, content and products
- Fast Learning focused on self-directed adult learners
This video has many interesting ideas and documents learning and innovation in an amazing way and validates my experience that our ability to learn quickly has far outpaced the capacity of enterprises or educational systems to deliver knowledge.
Pay careful attention to the conversation at the end of the presentation where it is noted that context and conversation are critical elements of virtually instant learning while the old 20 year schooling model has ‘broken down’.
One of our keen interests in exploring Social Media and specifically platforms like WordPress, LinkedIN, Twitter and other software tools is their ability to help us to learn ‘ instantly’ or at least very quickly compared to traditional educational approaches.
