Networks for all occasions
This module was one of the most familiar to me. I love networking! First on a professional teacher level, the learning objects compiled by the Learning Federation have been well used in my teaching. Now with Scootle teachers can readily access some great resources and create tailor-made learning paths jam packed, rich learning experiences for their students.
Facebook is a terrific social network site. I have had a great laugh with friends and have reconnected with long lost buddies too. However there can be pitfalls if not managed well. The term friends I think should really mean friends as allowing not-so-friendly people into your network can create problems. I know teaching colleagues who have stopped facebooking because troublesome ex-students have gained access. Discernment is the key.
