"In my new role as Lecturer in Blended Learning, a part of my role is staff development. Staff development has always been a part of my roles, both in how do you do staff development in a networked world?"
Comment: rich essay on how networked learning prepares people for networked working and networked professional development. It not only advocates the use of social media for this, but also lays out a course-like structure that allows in this case teachers to acquaint themselves with these media. That said, what I miss is what I miss in all these kinds of accounts that promote social media for learning, my own included: how do people learn with them in actual fact and how effectively do they learn? There is the hunch that social media offer unprecedented opportunities for learning. But there still is little evidence to substantiate it. (Peter sloep)
