Networks, Connections and Community: Learning with Social Software

The Australian Flexible Learning Framework has a habit of putting out useful reports, synthesizing dialogue on emerging technologies. A recent publication – Networks, Connections and Community: Learning with Social Software – runs a fairly broad path covering innovation adoption curves, Gladwell’s connectors, mavens, etc, research (based on an appreciative inquiry model), and practical uses. I found the practical illustrations of technology tools to be the most valuable part of the report…overall, a valuable resource for educators still trying to “make the point” of why these social, distributed tools are important ( thanks to Steven Parker for the resource).
