This session explores business and, in particular, training uses for popular social media tools. We'll look at compelling real examples of tools like Twitter, Facebook, blogs and wikis used by businesses and government, discuss strategies for choosing and using particular tools. We'll also take a look at ways workplace learning professionals can reskill to support the use of new technologies in training as well as, more broadly, in organization-wide social learning.
About Jane Bozarth, Ph.D.
A decade ago Jane Bozarth moved from the world of traditional instruction to designing and facilitating both asynchronous and synchronous training. Now that technology—and learner access to it—has finally caught up with possibilities, her interests have expanded to the world of social media tools to support and extend the work of the workplace training practitioner. She has an M.Ed. in Training & Development/Technology in Training and a doctorate in Adult Education. (Her dissertation, on workplace social learning/communities of practice, is available free via a Google search).+ You can find her "live" most anytime on Twitter @janebozarth and almost always on Thursday evenings as one of the moderators of the popular #lrnchat sessions. Her Twitter profile describes her as a feral learner, positive deviant, and World's Oldest Millennial. She also drives too fast.
