I am delighted to be the first stop on the blog book tour for Jane Bozarth's new book, Social Media for Trainers.
Jane is the author of a number of excellent books, including. E-Learning Solutions on a Shoestring and Better than Bullet Points - books that I wish I had written myself because of their clear, concise approach to the subject and packed with plenty of practical examples.
Jane's new book, Social Media for Trainers, is no exception, and it provides an ideal introduction for anyone who wants to understand how to use tools, like blogs, wikis, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, SlideShare, Flickr, etc to deliver training, facilitate discussions and extend learning beyond the confines of a training event.
My endorsement for Social Media for Trainers, that appears on the backcover, says it all:
"Clear explanations and practical examples of the use of social media for learning, make this book essential reading for all workplace trainers."
Social Media for Trainers is available both as a paperback and in a Kindle version from Amazon (Here are direct links to the book at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. Note: in the UK you can pre-order the book as it has yet to be released.)
