OK, I admit it. I’m an information junkie!
I’m addicted to learning new information.
Learning, My Drug Of Choice
Learning is my drug of choice. I get a high when my internal light bulb flashes. With each aha, my body is flooded with endorphins.
I consume hordes of information on a regular basis. I love reading non-fiction and self-help books. I read stuff from a variety of fields on purpose. That’s how I get new ideas and spark my creativity.
And with the arrival of the internet and social media, I now have a ton of free options to feed my craving for new information. Social media is my primary tool that I use for my personal learning network. It’s how I stay current and fresh.
The New Social Learning
Social media tools are powerful building blocks for enabling learning and development. When I use social media for learning, I leave a path for others to follow as those tools document my learning journey.
When organizations put social technologies to work for their organization they open the door to greater knowledge and a richer learning experience. They also nurture a corporate culture where “brain share” is a way of life.
