The Next Big Thing? 4 Learning Ideas for Generation C

I recently spent three days in Washington DC at the ASTD (which was re-branded mid-show to ATD ) discussing mobile, social and online learning.

When I wasn’t working the Kineo booth I was wandering the floor and attending sessions. Too often, tradeshow and conferences serve as a depressing reminder of how little changes in the training world. But actually, I came away energized and excited …

In early April, Kineo gathered fifty learning executives in New York to contemplate "whether compliance training is really training?", and other questions.
