    • People live their lives and learn across multiple settings, and this holds true not only across the span of our lives but also across and within the institutions and communities they inhabit – even classrooms, for example. I take an approach that urges me to consider the significant overlap across these boundaries as people, tools, and practices travel through different and even contradictory contexts and activities. KRIS GUTIERREZ
    • JOI ITO “I don’t think education is about centralized instruction anymore; rather, it is the process [of] establishing oneself as a node in a broad network of distributed creativity.” @joi

    • Many students already have confident social identities online, but developing identities as learners, writers, scholars, citizens — these are important tasks as part of higher education. - Catherine Cronin http://catherinecronin.wordpress.com/2014/02/12/openeducation-and- identities/ ROLE OF INSTITUTION IN DIGITAL IDENTITY
    • If institutions of learning are going to help learners with the real challenges they face… [they] will have to shift their focus from imparting curriculum to supporting the negotiation of productive identities through landscapes of practice.” - Etienne Wenger (Digital Habitats, 2010) ROLE OF INSTITUTION IN DIGITAL IDENTITY

    • A NEW FRONTIER FOR UNIVERSITIES & ACADEMICS
    • ACADEMIC BLOGGING
    • ACADEMIC BLOGGING Using social media has helped give my research a media profile which otherwise would have been impossible, particularly at this stage of my career. It’s made me easy to discover for journalists and it’s helped me forged a rich array of connections with the broader community who have been the subject of my research. I’ve also found that, increasingly, journalists have read my blog posts or listened to my podcasts before they contact me and it hugely aids the subsequent dialogue. Mark Carrigan http://blogs.lse.ac.uk/impactofsocialsciences/ 2013/02/04/the-value-of-academic-blogging/
    • ACADEMIC TWEETING
    • 5 TWITTER & SCIENCE MYTHS 1.  Serious scientists don’t tweet 2.  Twitter takes too much time 3.  You can’t be meaningful in 140 characters 4.  Twitter erases boundaries between students and faculty 5.  Twitter is only for self-promoters Sarah Boon, http://www.cdnsciencepub.com/ blog/scientists-using-twitter-dispelling-the- myths.aspx

    • ACTION RESEARCH WITH A COMMUNITY
    • ALTMETRICS “the new, online tools of scholarship begin to give public substance to the formally ephemeral roots of scholarship: the discussions never transcribed, the annotations never shared, the introductions never acknowledged, the manuscripts saved and reread but never cited. These backstage activities are now increasingly tagged, catalogued, and archived on blogs, Mendeley, Twitter, and elsewhere.” Jason Priem http://blogs.lse.ac.uk/impactofsocialsciences/2011/11/21/ altmetrics-twitter/
