So we are discussing how to use social technologies to encourage social networking (collaboration) at work. I really love social media and the possibilities to increase effectivenss at work. Where I work I have really tried to use social technologies, especially for informal learning purposes.
So I am the manager of the CareFirst Trainers Community of Practice (CoP). One of the things we have done is to conduct an internal #lrnchat (http://lrnchat.com/) using Presently. It has been a way for trainers from all over CareFirst to share knowledge. So individuals have been recognized as being experts due to their answers.
For my Mod 3 individual project, I want to propose that my division at CareFirst make a concerted effort to use SharePoint to collaborate with one another. Hopefully, we can make this work in my division and replicate that throughout CareFirst. We’ll see.
