Possibilities of Social Networking in the Classroom

I believed that our school was missing a growing phenomenon but until this afternoon I had no idea that Social Networking could have so much educational value. I did not realize the connection between Social Networking and learning. All I have ever seen is my kids exchanging idle chit chat on social networking sites that I didn't think anyone would be interested in but their friends. Now that I have had the chance to play with some of these sites I can see the vast potential for learners. I see the connection between learner engagement and Social Networking.

Thank you for this opportunity to enlighten myself and I look forward to continuing the journey.

The Journey Into 2.0

I am embarking on a journey into the world of Web 2.o. Wish me luck !!!!
