Abstract

The present survey is concerned with the use and potential of social software tools for advanced vocational training. An online survey was conducted to assess (N=101) in how far learning strategies and competencies as well as social software use for private reasons and are associated with the actual and intended use of social software for learning and vocational training. Results indicate that while the actual use of social software for collaboration is predicted by an experimental learning style, the intended use of new online technologies for vocational training is only related to the private use of according software. Implications for system design are discussed.
