In the Social Age, everything has changed. Some people say we are still in the Digital Age, but we are through it now, left with a legacy of technology and connectedness that will persist through all time. The technology changed everything, but it’s not the thing to focus on. It’s the underlying sociology that counts: the way we connect has changed, the ways we learn, work, lead and play. The ways we do everything.
The Social Age is about communities, it’s about people and the impacts that are delivered by the technology. We are now connected to knowledge in new ways, connected to knowledge that is, in itself, evolved: more dynamic, co-created and adaptive. We are connected to communities in which we take multiple and varied roles, often under multiples flavours of our own identity.
Join this MOOC* to explore 12 aspects of the Social Age and to explore the realities, the challenges and the possibilities that it brings.
*The course starts on Monday, 27th February 2017 – Pre-registration is open now.
Foundations of the Social Age is designed and curated by Julian Stodd, author and founder of Sea Salt Learning.
Delivered through the Curatr learning platform, this MOOC offers you the space to share your own stories and experiences of the changes and challenges you face, both as individuals and within your organisations. It offers practical activities and provocation questions that you can use and apply in your own organisation and gives you access to a community of generous and like-minded individuals.
The course is designed to be open – a space for you to explore the Social Age at your leisure. If you’re interested in a specific aspect then you can jump straight into that. Be aware that many of the aspects are connected, and a deeper understanding may come from taking a look at other aspects as well.
