Social Media & Web 2.0 for Learning (2nd Edition)


Published on

A ’Crash Course’ (2nd Edition) to get you started with social media and web 2.0 for learning and teaching. Today there are thousands of exciting learning tools to explore, but sadly most teachers do not have the time to explore all, or figure out which ones to use. This presentation (and workshop) focuses on several of the most essential learning tools that we can use to facilitate learning and build an effective personal learning environment and network.

The 2nd edition also includes some new interesting social media infographics, and some useful stats related to Malaysia.
