Learning, Freedom and the Web

Learning, Freedom and the Web | Digital Teesside | Scoop.it

An online compelation of insights and predictions about the future of learning and the central part that the web will play in that shpere. The components for this eBook have been compiled from contributors to Mozilla's Learning Freedom and the Web Festival held in Barcelona in 2010. Mark Surman, Executive Director of Mozilla, summarised that event in the following way:

 

"Barcelona sparked a conversation about how the future of learning and the future of the web are intertwined, and about the role both play in fueling creativity, innovation and common wealth. This is a conversation that is growing as we speak.

Hopefully, this book will help you find an entry point into this conversation. A place to grab hold so you can tinker, hack and make the future of learning in your own way"

Designing for Learning: Online social Networks as a Classroom Environment.

Designing for Learning: Online social Networks as a Classroom Environment. | Digital Teesside | Scoop.it

Numerous papers extolling the learning potential of online social networks and so called Web 2.0 services have been written by educational technology enthusiasts and innovators. The capacity for creativity, interactivity and collaboration afforded by these new social networking tools would appear to be a good fit for education. However, very few articles have been based on classroom research in actual learning environments with students and teachers.

 

This is a study well worth reading and thinking about because it focusses on teaching and learning. It demonstrates clearly that the use of social networking can be used successfully in the processes of learning. Designing for Learning: Online Social Networks as a Classroom Environment provides a model for schools to consider as a starting point for using social networking in pedagogy.
