A Sixth Shade of Social


Systems of sociality have come a long way since apes groomed each other on the savanna. We’ve got social capital, social software, social networks, social media, and social graphs. This talk centers on another (dare I say deeper) shade of social: social learning.

The study of social learning is applicable to fields from education to environmental management. Now, online tools are accelerating our ability to encourage and engage in social learning practices.
