So when you consider this and then what Citizenscape states its value is, the value isn’t directly in the technology itself (although without it, it would be pretty empty) but in the connections, the networks, the communities that are now able to come together and share learning, to reconnect at a civic level to address local issues and problems. The key role for the platform (Citizenscape) is to facilitate those connections, without it those networks may not get the chance to reconnect.

#networkista* *someone interested in finding ways to apply network thinking for social benefit

The idea of applying network thinking and theory for community and social benefit is not new. Some have been investigating and applying this for many years; others are newcomers to the idea. But we all think the time is right to spread understanding of network theory and network building more generally. We’re aware too that there’s a growing number of people who are interested in this and want to explore it further.

One way to grow a networked teacher, is to grow a networked learner, by Joyce Seitzinger

One way to grow a networked teacher, is to grow a networked learner, by Joyce Seitzinger | Networkistas | Scoop.it

"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)

Communities of practice: teaching students to learn in networks | Online Journalism Blog | Networkistas | Scoop.it

The ‘Communities of Practice’ assignment asks students to focus not just on developing technical skills around a particular medium of their choice, but on exploring the communities of practice that exist around it. In fact, at this stage the development of technical skills was one of the ways of making contact with those communities.
