This book talks about the use of social media to the workplace, especially to create an impact.
The best way to learn
Richard J. Light of the Harvard Graduate School of Education found that the most important factor to determine a student’s educational success was their ability to participate in small study groups. These students tend to learn more than students who prefer to work and study by themselves. That’s where the role of teamwork comes into play. How can you help other people and how can they help you?
The coordinated effort empowered by social media permits groups to cooperate in order to address issues that no one has overcome yet. The only available long-term competitive advantage available anymore is innovation. Solve problems innovatively- whether its bringing a new product into the market or improving an existing product.
Online events or in-person events? The choice lies in your hands. With the outreach of online events, people prefer to organize online events rather than offline events. Moreover, the pandemic has definitely changed the way the world works.
Your social media connections will be of great help in this case. All in all, utilize social media to figure out what the meeting subject can be- what do people want to talk about. Your most insightful comments are likely to be translated into 140 character tweets so that people following online can see what they are missing and engage in the conversation. You can add an attendee list with links to their websites, and social media handles so people can connect and network before the event starts.
The emphasis should be on learning, not on socializing. What is your mission of being present on social media- how are you going to achieve that?
It is difficult to control social media. It can get out of our hands very fast, very soon. Ensure that the information is relevant to the audience and not offensive. Not every person will be however energized as you may be about this new learning program.
So the writing is on the wall - it's an ideal opportunity to make learning social.
