Connected learning

Prediction (more of an extrapolation, actually): Of all the trends and activities in learning and technology fields, the exploration of networks and knowledge flow will pay the greatest dividends in improving individual and organizational learning. I’m surprised more effort isn’t being expended in this area. Managing the Connected Organization: “The knowledge economy operates on the complexities of connections. All individuals, communities, systems, and other business assets are massively interconnected in an evolving economic web. In the connected economy, each network actor (individual, team, or organization) is embedded in a larger economic system that affects each participant and, in return, is influenced by that participant. In such a connected system we can no longer focus on individual or single team performance. We must manage connected assets, not unconnected individuals.”
