Share what you know | Learnist - 0 views

    Learnist  differs from Pinterest and Google in that "expert curation helps avoid the misinformation, hacked-together how-to articles and other useless content one must weed through" in a typical search. As users move through resources on Learnist, they can check off each content component they've completed. And Nivi said he hopes that at some point the site will also include assessments.

Social Networking: Learning Theory in Action - 0 views

    There has been a lot of recent debate on the benefits of social networking tools and software in education. While there are good points on either side of the debate, there remains the essential difference in theoretical positioning. Most conventional educational environments are "Objectivist" in nature and highly structured in terms of students progress and choice. Social networking essentially requires a less controlled, user-generated environment, which challenges conventional views of the effective "management" of teaching and learning. Therefore, can social networking both as an instructional concept and user skill be integrated into the conventional approaches to teaching and learning? Do the skills developed within a social networking environment have value in the more conventional environments of learning?
