  • I’d like to introduce you to how we’re using Ning, Twitter, Flickr and YouTube to build an online learning community.
    This is not a shopping list of Web 2.0 sites, merely four online tools that I’m using to connect with my students.
    After I’ve showed you what we’re doing, I will ask you a few questions about your views.

  • Why build an online social network?
    My students are spread geographically, and I want to maintain contact between block-release classes at TAFE.
    I also want students to learn how to present themselves online in a global context.
    Doing this gives students a chance to collaborate with each other, maintaining their own network and extending it around Australia and to other countries.
