Knowledge, Learning, Community

This article is pretty light and at times awkwardly written, but it does raise the interesting question, "has social learning been forgotten?" It's a good question. "Social learning isn't seen first as learning but rather the emphasis is on the 'social' which to many still means chit-chat, Facebook friends and cats on a Roomba GIFs." And "Social learning, unlike its counterpart, formal learning, is a messy many-to-many rather than the neat one-to-many model of training." So it's hard to measure, and so it doesn't show up in a lot of management plans.
