Lurking or Legitimate Peripheral Participation
JULY 18, 2011
During the July 7 early #lrnchat about social media and social learning, there was a lot of discussion about lurking. In response to the question “What are some ways you learn through social media that aren’t collaborative, with other people per-se?. I replied : I do a fair amount of lurking (ie “legitimate peripheral participation ). I also retweeted this message by Colby Fordham : We all like sharers, but there is a value in lurking.
