I am very excited to take this course! I am looking forward to examining social networking options and their implications with the help of my instructor and classmates. In particular, I would like to understand how these tools can be used to extend student learning. I feel that I can easily see the social relevance of many of these, but would like to better comprehend the ways these tools can be used to support learning in a meaningful way.I am also interested in effectively using organizational tools like dashboards (such as netvibes) that can help me keep everything at my fingertips.
Here we go….. 🙂
PS While I was searching for netvibes, I found a site called, Social Brite, social strategies for nonprofits. It looks like it might have useful information.
