Social Learning

Challenges in Learning

The 2011 Horizon Report calls out many trends that are impacting the future of education: social learning, collaborative work, learning anywhere and any time are among the key challenges facing education and educators.

Another general challenge that affects educators is information overload. The content universe is exploding, giving rise to information, ideas, and opinions on all sorts of interesting topics, but following even some of the hundreds of available authorities means sifting through a mountain of information on a weekly or daily basis. There is a greater need than ever for effective tools and filters for finding, interpreting, organizing, and retrieving the data that is important to us.

Zakta’s Social Intelligence Platform is ideally suited to help solve many of the challenges cited.
