This self published book, (available from LuLu as a book of downloadable PDF) is from the Guru of Social Learning – Jane Hart.
“It is becoming apparent that we are at the beginning of a fundamental shift in the way that both learning and working is happening in organizations. The revolution that is social media means that now everyone can have access to the Social Web and a range of services and applications to support their own as well as their team’s learning, performance and productivity. This should not be seen as a threat to the L&D profession, but as an opportunity to take on the new challenges it offers. The first step will be to understand the changes that are taking place, then become immersed in the new social media tools that are underpinning this change, in order to help others in their organization work and learn smarter. Social Learning is, after all, not something you just talk or read about; it’s something you do! This Handbook looks at both the theory and practice.”
