Abundance = the internet as the
world’s biggest small town
Educating in Abundance =
Network Learning
So. Trying to map network literacies
over systems of education:
What does that LOOK like?
Many-to-many communications, & org
structures CAN co-exist

Literacy 1: IDENTITY
Identity = Price of Admission
https://www.flickr.com/photos/mkhmarketing/8468788107
Digital identity = reputation built
through repeated interactions
In institutional
structures, an
individual has a role.
In a networked
culture, an individual
has an identity, which
it is ...
Digital identity = control
You need to work on your identity
before it will work for you
Identity need not be fully public,
but should allow in-group identification
Should scaffold & extend conversations
& resource-sharing
@hypothes_is!
Should open new conversations
Should model how to navigate
many-to-many communications
with minimal harm / damage

To lead networked learning, facilitators
need to be
networked too.
BUT THEY DO NOT NEED
TO BE EXPERTS.
To get started (in any network)…
Building network literacies on your
campus = choices

Second, it no longer is necessary to store within the human brain all of the information that humans need. Education needs to be geared toward the handling of data rather than the accumulation of data.” - Berlo, 1975
