The changing learning landscape What are the ‘pros and cons’ of social learning, networking and communities for learning? Coach Carole 22 October 2008 " Put e-learning on your map'

" Put e-learning on your map' Where are you going? How will you communicate during your travels? How can e-learning help you? In this session we will explore some innovative methods of engaging others in e-learning from a social networking point of view. Introducing the concepts of e-learning to groups of tutors and teachers can be a real challenge and this year I've used the metaphor of 'journey' to engage with my e-mentors in the Hume region. In this session I'm going to take the concept one step further and look at how you can 'map' the journey using some of the social networking (Web 2.0) tools from a travel perspective. Over the years I've seen great successes with the introduction of digital storytelling into educational activities - one of the main reasons for its success has been its engagement with the participants from a personally rewarding perspective. I can now see that the use of such tools as wikis, blogs, flickr, you tube, delicious and twitter can be the vehicles for enabling a greater understanding and implementation of e-learning if you first appeal to the 'social' aspects of e-learning for the participant.

Rationale My recent trips to England, Egypt and Europe provided an opportunity to make use of some social networking tools to keep in touch with family and friends This caused me to rethink how I might introduce such tools to groups of new e-learning enthusiasts using a mapping approach Make use of travel pictures, blogs, and stories to engage new learners in using: flickr, blogger and photo story OR bubbleshare, wordpress and voicethread It is important to formulate strategies for providing exploration and communication time for participants
