Today’s question comes from Phil Menger: Do you use social media for workplace training and learning? and working?
Please comment below.
(Corrected Feb. 25 afternoon)
i use social media at work, posting to the library’s social media accounts. it is a regular part of my day, and can take up an amazing amount of time! as for training, no– we don’t use it for workplace training or any other internal communications, but i definitely use social media for my own professional development.
I was specifically interested in workplace training and learning. Not sure how the question got posted with the added “and working”.
Hi Phil, it was posted as written in your email last week. Have edited as requested.
I am in an academic library, and we do not use social media for training library staff. The library does have accounts (Facebook and Twitter) that are managed by one of our librarians, but these are meant for communicating with users.
Thanks Mandi. How do you feel about that? Do you feel there is a role for using social media for workplace learning, collaboration, team building etc.?
Keep in mind that social media involves more than Facebook and Twitter etc. It can also involve collaborative tools such as teens are doing with poetry http://bit.ly/XExMqK
