From The Director's Desk
 
For our September’s issue of Upside Learning Buzz, we go back to the basics - learning and its different forms. And with the World of Learning Conference and Exhibition less than a week away‚ our focus on learning truly holds ground.

You can read about learning through social networking‚ the future of learning technology‚ online education v/s classroom‚ influence of mobile learning in higher education and more.

Also, for the first time‚ we are attempting to conduct a survey through our newsletter. We encourage you to participate‚ and share this newsletter with your friends and colleagues. We would love to have a larger sample just as you would love to have a robust statistical report with accurate derivations.
 
 
Happy reading‚ folks!

But are the ‘social media/networking systems’ out there promoting this learning? Or does it happen in spite of these systems? Get your questions answered as we take a contrarian view on social networking here.
