Using social media for eLearning (a look at the top 6 social platforms)

eFront

Social media have become an indispensable part of modern life. A huge part of our social lives already happens online rather than in the “real world” And while individual social media networks might rise and fall (remember MySpace?), social networking itself is not going anywhere. And indeed, people already use them for things ranging from gaming down to email replacement and even disaster management. Facebook is the Godzilla of social networks.

Ive recently been more interested in measures around social learning. And, I just saw a post Measuring Networked (or Social) Learning that discusses how we could go about measuring social learning. Learning needs - differences between the learning needs or demand between “formal” and “social” learning (are some skills best learnt formally?), If you have really good support for networks, communities, social learning, etc. – Is Social Learning Fun?
