  • 25. Some Benefits
    • "As people communicate online, that conversation becomes part of a
    • 26. lively, significant, public digital knowledge - rather than chatting for one
    • 27. moment with a small group of friends and colleagues, every person
    • 28. potentially has access to a global audience. Taken together, that
    • 29. conversation also creates a mode of knowing we've never had
    • 30. before...these diverse viewpoints help us get past the biases of
    • 31. individuals..." (Weinberger, 2007:146)
  • 32. Social software Spoilt for choice
      http://www.flickr.com/photos/pipeapple/3280609082/
  • 33. “ Social software offers the opportunity to narrow the divide between producers and consumers. Consumers themselves become producers, through creating and sharing. One implication is the potential for a new ecology of ‘open’ content, books, learning materials and multimedia, through learners themselves becoming producers of learning materials.” (Attwell, 2007) New approach to using technologies for learning.
