The Different Sorts of Networks Within Which We Work and Learn

1 min read

This quote caught my eye this morning:

We have to teach ourselves how to use social media. For the first time in history, 3 billion people are connected to each other. Is this a trap or an unrealized opportunity?

This article makes good sense of the the different ways that our work teams, our communities of practice and our looser social networks all contribute to our growth and learning, but each in different and vital ways.


Pieces like this help me get past the either/or questions of "is tech good or bad" to think about when and why digital connections can be productive and constructive.

Me?  I think it's an unrealiized opportunity.
