    Physical/informal connection to making (individual)

  • Social Media Is a Norm for Students
    "We all already have Facebook. It saves us signing up for another service that doesn't even operate as well. We all know how Facebook works too. Its a great platform to collaborate on as  Facebook, for many young people has become an extension of their social selves. Its also a fairly reliable service to get in contact with someone. For a lot of us, checking and surfing Facebook regularly has become second nature, so you'll probably hear back from whoever your getting in contact with."- Connor Crawford"The new group feature for Facebook came in really handy for group assignments this year, the majority of us students already have a Facebook account, and it was really easy to get a group organized. One person set up the group and added all of our members to it and that was it. It worked really well for a way to contact all members of our group at once, picking out times to meet and where, or ask a simple question and have all group member's input. The group, once created has a separate wall, where only members can write and share on. It was also really helpful when we wanted to share content, you just uploaded a picture or a document and everyone in the group had access to it. This made it really easy to share everything collectively and set up our website. We have actually kept the group running and still use it in our class this semester, we've just added a few new members. This way of communicating was really effective, instantaneous and simple. "- Stephanie Redmond

  • Emerging Mobile Learning Networks Model
    Incorporates informal learning opportunities:
