The Learning Rebel, Shannon Tipton, asked me to prepare a short video to show how I use social tools with my team. She is gathering a collection to support a presentation titled ‘Creating your 21st Century Toolbox‘ at the Training 2016 conference in Orlando. I thought this would be a nice supplement to my previous posts on how my team has supported the development of internal Communities of Practice.
In the video (5min 30secs) below I describe how I use a mixture of internal and external social tools to work, share resources, and learn with my five-strong Capability (i.e. Learning and Development) team. Featured tools include SharePoint, MicroSoft OneNote, and Storify. Other tools we use include Twitter and Diigo. The video also mentions that we use these tools with (1) our internal Capability Community, which includes local Capability Managers in our operational sites and (2) other people working on projects with us to develop learning programs.
You may notice that there is more content / activity in some of the tools than others. This reflects the gradual adoption of specific tools and evolution of our working practices as a team. One recent development is the request from my team that we increase our use of discussion forums to make it easier to stay up to date with each other’s work, and to share resources and learning more fluidly. That put a smile on my face!
