(Activate Learning Solutions) – Helen Blunden sharea a story of how during a presentation on social learning to some of her workmates, she was asked about how – in the context of learning – we can fully trust the information that we read, view and hear online. Helen writes that rather than L&D professionals controling “that information as it’s likely that what we also give them will also be out of date immediately, that we coach our people to have their ‘crap detectors’ on; to teach them skills around inquiring, critically evaluating and checking the information rather than total acceptance of what is given.” Interesting read.
