    44. 44. Conclusion• Structured guidance to think about design• The power of visualisation• Beyond content to activities and experience• Iterative, creative and messy• Making designs explicit• Social media to foster communication and collaboration
    45. 45. Final thoughts• Participatory and social media enable new forms of communication and collaboration• Communities in these spaces are complex and distributed• Learners and teachers need to develop new digital literacy skills to harness their potential• We need to rethinkhow we design, support and assess learning• Open, participatory and social media can provide mechanisms for us to share and discuss teaching and research ideas in new ways• We are seeing a blurring of boundaries: teachers/learners, teaching/research, real/virtual spaces, formal/informal modes of communication and
