  • More than 2.7 billion people use mobile phones. Social networking sites are expected to grow beyond 90 million within the next year.
  • These four conditions exist within a context that is shaped by policy, technological infrastructure, accountability demands, student abilities, community needs, etc Each NLE is nested within a classroom, school, systems, and even larger contexts. Michael Wesch (2008) defi nes learning as the ability to create signifi cance and distinguishes between semantic and personal signifi cance. Semantic signifi cance means understanding that “a word, concept or idea is not just meaningful for what it is, but also for how it relates, connects, and contrasts with other words, concepts, and ideas” (2008, video lecture). Personal signifi cance, Wesch claims, connotes that meaningful connections are created in the social interaction with others and through the individual’s process of learning to become a successful, contributing member of a community.
