    • Building Social Networks September 16, 2010
    • What is a social network?
      • Social networks are the colloquial expression for network communities that allow their users to generate and exchange content via internet platforms.
    • Social Networks in the Abstract
      • In becoming a member of a social community, an individual is developing a social identity.
      • As group members construct and negotiate a shared meaning, members develops collectively rather than individually, becoming a “community of interpretation” working toward a shared understanding of the matter under discussion.
      • Become a member of a community, engage in its practices, and you can acquire and make use of its knowledge and information.
      • Practice is an effective teacher and the community of practice an ideal learning environment.
    • Social Networking Now
      • Social Networking is already happening informally.
        • Resident Advisors using Google Groups

    • How Does The Garden Grow?
      • Think of a social network as a garden
      • We can not force it to grow
      • We can maintain the garden and create an environment conducive to growth
    • The Moderator as Gardener
      • Each social network must have a moderator in order to ensure healthy growth
      • The responsibilities of this moderator are to maintain
        • important files (make sure that the latest versions are in place)
        • thread integrity (make sure that a comments in a thread stay on the given topic)

        • Joshua can support you in this
