Technology SIG Virtual Event featuring Jane Bozarth

Effective use of social media technologies can help to enhance and extend workplace training and learning efforts. With much of the current talk on social media and social learning occuring at the 50,000 foot level, training and learning professionals report that it offers few ideas for application to their work.
This session takes a 100-foot view of concrete, specific uses for using social media tools to enhance and extend existing training programs.  While it primarily addresses use of Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Blogs, and Wikis (including some discussion of private, alternatives), the emphasis is on recognizing any new social media tool at their root purpose rather than at face value.
