Using Social Media for Learning


I’m not only a big proponent of social media, I’m also an educator who develops learning programs for companies and organizations. I love it when I see a blog that collects great information and other related sites … it’s one of the reasons I blog. This one from the eLearning Blog by Tony Karrer is a great example for anyone who is involved with learning and social media.

Take it away Tony …

In a recent conversation, I was asked what I thought about twitter as a learning tool.  Over the course of the past few years I’ve moved from saying “I don’t get it” – to feeling like it’s a good addition to my Learning Tool Set.  But I also think that there’s a lot more help now around how to make effective use of Twitter as a learning tool.  I thought it would be worthwhile to pull together these resources.
