This last week I did a webinar that focused on the future of training. Which, for all intents and purposes, is the future of learning.
As if learning somehow changes.
But it does. How we learn today is different than we have in the past.
When my six-year-old son asks, “What is the fastest land animal,” we look it up. It is a quick search and we find a documentary about Cheetahs. Then we also find that there are other ways to measure speed. In a relative way, the cheetah is beat by the Paratarsotomus macropalpis.
And when he enters the workforce, guess how he will learn. It will be completely different than how I learned how to learn.
In fact, the way I learn has already changed. This is one of the big changes we need to look at in the Future of Work.
This first guest article is about how learning should change by using social technologies. I was speaking about this back in 2007, but it has not been recognized as widely as it should.
Think about how you learn and how it will change.
Read a few articles, watch the new videos I put out last week, and then have a great week!
“Learning is where I see most benefits in social technology – it’s the best place to start and you have more benefits to gain.”
“If you’re not part of the problem, you can’t be part of the solution.”
“To keep up with the changes that employees and businesses are experiencing, CIOs need to recognize five trends driving these changes, and plan accordingly to stay ahead of the curve.”
“We are only starting to understand what the future of work looks like. In my view, the imagined idea of entirely virtual organizations is similar to how we used to think of the future as full of flying cars and colonies in space. Reality is much more invested in hybrid in-office plus remote scenarios. Physical space is still a strong element of work that we need to keep track of, and understand better to learn how we truly collaborate.”
