Social Learning is the informal learning that takes place in our fluid social spaces, and I argue these to be in face to face communities as well as online.  They are the spaces where we expand our learning networks and gain knowledge on the fly. Our communities of practice help us make sense of that knowledge in a timely fashion. It’s needs based learning. And it’s very necessary now.
