Practical Usage of Social Media for Formal Learning

ATD 2014 Session: M115
Dan Steer | May 05, 2014 | Video

There is a lot of talk about using social media for learning. Learning and development professionals know that the possibilities are endless, but where should we start? What concrete first actions can be taken to improve learning using social media? This session will deliver practical ideas, ready to implement, to upgrade current formal learning and training initiatives. By implementing the ideas of this workshop, you can increase the effectiveness, efficiency, longevity, and reach of formal learning initiatives in your organization. If training is your game, you will also learn how to improve in-class learning time by using social media tools for activities that do not have to be completed during class. Together we will answer these questions: For specific learning objectives or required competences, what could be achieved using social media tools? For training, what activities are best placed before, during, and after in-class sessions? What types of tools are best suited to what types of activities? What are the obstacles to successful adoption of social media for learning and what can you do to overcome them? How will you measure usage of social media in your formal learning initiative? How can you stimulate engagement from your learners?
