Wealth of Real-World Ideas
, September 6, 2010
This review is from: Social Media for Trainers: Techniques for Enhancing and Extending Learning (Paperback)
I have been a Jane Bozarth fan since her first book. She has obviously worked in the 'real world' and always produces relevant, useful content. This new book is no exception. Aimed at the traditional trainer, the author provides dozens of ideas, activities, and exercises that the frontline trainer can put into place right away. The book focuses on several categories of tools (like microblogs and wikis) that exist in many varied forms. Bozarth chose wisely, focusing on tools likely to be around for awhile (like Facebook)although specific forms and products may evolve over time. I especially liked the "focusing" approach she takes with each tool, encouraging readers to first look at simple-root purpose, then moving on to viewing the tool as a means of supporting instuction, collaboration, and social and informal learning.
As an added bonus: the author is a social media power-user and is very accessible via Twitter and Facebook, where she frequently posts updates to the book.
