Purpose – Social media provides a modern approach to working and learning with people across vast distances as easily as if they were side by side. The new tools foster a new type of social learning, offering leaders an opportunity to transform their organizations into rich learning labs where new knowledge and innovative practices emerge in real-time. Design/methodology/approach – Based on my book published in 2010, and the work I have done with more than 100 companies on social media’s use for fostering social learning. Findings – Social technologies should be used to replace outmoded education programs with more effective and mobile means. With these tools, learners can reframe learning from a passive activity done to learners to an active and very human activity that enables people to build upon their individual and collective potential. Originality/value – Written for this publication, yet based on the learnings since and research done originally for The New Social Learning.
