Imagining Learning with Web 2.0 Tools

Having agreed in a previous post with Martin Weller about the inappropriateness of traditional learning management systems in a social networking context I have been reading his blog further.

Martin has established a project called SocialLearn and done some thought research about what a social learning environment might be like. He proposes an interesting scenario and postulates on how various social media tools could interwork to provide professional and personal learning for a country vet. While the tool integration might be lacking at the moment the concept of ‘loosely linked applications could make learning/teaching easy, pedagogically sound and fun’.

I am attracted to this approach and will attempt to apply it to intra-university contexts and hope to tease out social media process patterns.
