An increase in self-directed, online learning has transformed education dramatically, especially in the last three years. Online learning and adult education include training, coaching, mentoring, assessments, microlearning, video tutorials, and even one-page infographics.

Social Learning

Social learning has become an integral part of the education field in modern society. This form of learning communicates a robust idea that people can collaborate and learn from each other to develop themselves and learn from various sources, which has become modern education.

Social Networks

Social learning tools include social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube and many other online resources that have become indispensable resources for our modern times. As an effective learning tool, social learning helps people to improve skills, knowledge, attitudes, values and behaviours to integrate into their personal and professional life.

Recently, social networks have grown in popularity, and more people use social networks daily to communicate with others, share information, learn new things, keep up to date with current affairs, develop skills, make new friends and interact in various ways.

Knowledge is Everywhere

There are changes in how learning and education are delivered, accessed and consumed. The availability of information via social networks continues to grow as innovators and creators evolve how they develop learning content and make it accessible to individual consumers and businesses. Everything you want to know is at your fingertips as more people use smart devices like mobile phones, tablets and laptops. Learning almost anything you want to know through the internet has become far more accessible.

Self-Directed and Proactive Learning

Education has become more self-directed and proactive, and this direction has increased the need and the desire to engage in continuous learning. We live during a fantastic time!

Remember, you can learn from Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok and many more social media platforms. So—go on, google something you want to learn and see the multitude of options available to you.
