This past week, I delivered a couple presentations at the 2009 American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) International Conference and Exposition. Below are the slide decks.
After you’ve had a chance to peruse them, I’d be interested in getting your feedback on a couple key question that arose in all of my sessions:
1. What are the drivers and motivations for older Boomers (those born between 1946 and 1954) to adopt social media?
2. What kind of education solutions (classroom-based training, one-on-one coaching, etc) are most effective in overcoming the fear and reticence that is largely due to lack of knowledge?
This deck below includes 12 ideas/examples of intergenerational knowledge sharing beginning on slide 21:
Admittedly, there is some overlap on this next slide deck, but the bulk of information about the generations and social media are found in the first 15 slides with the rest being ideas for bridging the age gap:
Thank you in advance for your input!
