Join me for a webinar on critical thinking and social media on September 28th at 3pm Eastern through HR.com.
Think Fast! Turn information overload & thousands of social connections into increased productivity
Description: With over 145 million blogs and millions of Twitter and Facebook users online each day, it’s hard for your employees to ignore the vast pools of information, comments, and networking found on social media sites. Diverse communities and answers to complex questions are available instantaneously. Employees can publish new research, hear about and solve a customer problem, and be active in forums and trendsetting industry conversations – all in a morning! But there are potential dangers and missteps at every turn. Information can be leaked; competitive information shared unknowingly; brands tarnished; and relationships damaged. Information flies at us fast and furiously and this requires everyone to evaluate real-time information before putting it to use and to “think before you post.” Are your employees thinking critically about the sites they access, comments they post, and sources they trust?
Join Breanne Potter from Pearson’s Talent Assessment group to learn how the need for critical thinking and good judgment is greater than ever before. See examples of critical thinking in action and learn techniques for evaluating information. Everyone who attends will receive a copy of Critical Thinking Means Business, Pearson’s guide to improving your thinking at work using the RED model.
What you will learn:
- Learn about the most popular social media platforms and techniques for evaluating information.
- Examine ways in which social media can help your organization recruit & develop top talent and increase productivity.
- Learn how to train your employees to think critically about the source, content, and relevance of social media posts.
- Develop activities to help model critical thinking while using social media through the RED Model of Critical Thinking
