John Cook’s work on EU projects like MATURE is pointing to the values of social network tools amplifying learning in the workplace

Repurposing Cultural Contexts ... But it’s not just learning & teaching ... in the workplace…

  • situated workplace learning, both formal and informal, is being given the same priority as motorways by the EC, which is why Horizon 2020 is getting €80 billion.
  • We need ‘Facebook for the workplace’
  • Challenges for TEL are the need to address impact and scale
