The changing Web

Learning with 'e's

Social media - often referred to as Web 2.0 , or the participatory Web - is shaping up to be one of the most important tool sets available to support the promotion of change in education.

Debate focuses on whether the emerging social applications constitute a sea change or revolution in the Web (cf.

Building on the concept of communities of practice , Etienne Wenger (2009) has proposed a social theory of learning.

This morning I received an email asking… How are people using social software to support learning? I think most of us agree that there is an important social dimension to learning.

The entire social web is founded on freely shared content. Prior to the social web, public sharing wasn''t that common a theme. Sharing content for free was amplified into popularity by the advent of the social networks. Tagging made it even more personal.
