I hope to explore some of the possibilities and potential of tools such as blogs, wikis, microblogs and aggregators, and will also explore mashups, social tagging, and concepts such as 'wisdom of crowds' and folksonomies. Tags: Manish Malik Folksonomy blog Web 2.0

Learning with e's

The Learning Circuits

the collaborative learning environments sourcebook was one of the first resources i use when i began learning about communities of practice. before rss, news aggregators, blogrolls, technorati tags and folksonomies, most "webbies" would wander around from site to site, following whatever link caught their imagination. i just had the experience that i'm sure happens to many of us. i was reunited with a long lost favorite website.
