More on Social Networking

Thanks to a post from Paul, I linked to this page on the ASTD website on “Social Networking.”

One of the points Siemens that rang a bell for me was his commentary on use of blogs and wikis.

Blogs, wikis, and other open, collaborative platforms are reshaping learning as a two-way process. Instead of presenting content/information/knowledge in a linear sequential manner, learners can be provided with a rich array of tools and information sources to use in creating their own learning pathways. The instructor or institution can still ensure that critical learning elements are achieved by focusing instead on the creation of the knowledge ecology. The links and connections are formed by the learners themselves.
