These two quotes are from the article on Social Learning:
“Moreover the process of social learning is embedded in a web of power- and trust-relationships.”
“Having different frames can be detrimental to social learning when actors are unable to deal with their differences.”
Both of these lines spoke to me, and got me thinking about the
differences in how people interact, and how social learning may or may
not be successful, depending on circumstance.
My question is: What role do you think power dynamics play in social
learning? Do you think differences of perspectives that are rooted in
power inequity pose a specific problem for social learning? Do you have
any real-world examples of this type of challenge, or any thoughts on
how to address this type of power-related struggle to understand, trust,
and learn from one another?
