Harnessing social learning 

Social learning: learning communities on social media

I don’t know about you, but every morning on my way to work I open my Facebook on my smartphone to browse for news, articles, updates from people I’m either friends with or groups that I follow. I no longer go to news sites for updates on what’s happening in the world – I have these on my social networking sites, and they are so much more engaging than the news websites.

The people, groups and pages I follow, I select carefully. They have to have something interesting or useful to offer. They are either suggested to me by my friends, or sometimes I stumble across them by accident when browsing for information I need, or when someone else shares an interesting post they find and publish on their wall. I could argue that this is basically the essence of social behaviour that takes place on the net. And this is how I ultimately become a member of a learning community without really thinking about it. I’m pretty sure this is how it works for other people as well.

World Cup and Learning as a Game?

Game field - football stadion

The news and the internet are filled with World Cup announcements; you can’t scroll through your FaceBook or browse posts on Twitter without coming across someone’s status update about the team they support this year. Football fans are buzzing about it on social media and even if you’re not a fan, you can’t help it but once every four years get into this football craze and join the World Cup excitement.

It happens to me every World Cup. Though I’m not regularly following football events, every four years I find myself supporting a team that I know very little about. It starts very innocently, I speak to a friend who’s a supporter, or overhear conversations of colleagues at work about their favourite teams, and suddenly I find myself interested in performance of this team or that team. I transform into an enthusiastic football fan for that competition. How does that work? Continue reading
