Learning together online

Steve Wheeler has just put up a new slide share about Learning together online. This presentation discusses how social networks are an important part of the culture of many young people. In light of this teachers need to exploit the power of these tools to engage students to enhance the thinking and learning in their classrooms.

Here in New Zealand, we have had some instances where a social media network (such as Facebook) has been used in a way where the outcomes are probably not what was envisioned by the young people using it. Teaching how to use the tools in a responsible way is also important.


  1. Great blog and post, keep it up i will be subscribing to your feed!

  2. Thanks for your kind words, I just put in here things that I, as a teacher, find interesting or things I would use in my classroom. For me it is all about enhancing the children's learning and preparing them for their future.
