Here is the last in an excellent series of posts on social media platforms for learning from Jane Hart at the Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies. Much of the challenge for the provision of qualifications is in the cultural, pedagogical (or should it be andagogical) and bureaucratic changes required to allow the formal accreditation of the demonstration of learning through social media. Is there a cultural similarity between the control imperative of qualifications based quality assurance agencies and traditional management thinking/ practice with both acting as barriers to social media adoption reaching its full potential for learning?
