Social networking and learning | Australian Policy Online

Numerous papers extolling the learning potential of online social networks and so called Web 2.0 services have been written by educational technology enthusiasts and innovators. The capacity for creativity, interactivity and collaboration afforded by these new social networking tools would appear to be a good fit for education. However, very few articles have been based on classroom research in actual learning environments with students and teachers. A well written, at times lyrical, and pedagogically relevant study of the use of social networks to support classroom activities has been reported recently in IRRODL. Designing for Learning: Online Social Networks as a Classroom Environment focussed on ‘notions of emergence, connections and designs for learning’ (p. 1) to understand ‘students’ interactions when using online social media as a learning environment’ (p. 1) with 150 students organised in seven classes in a Victorian secondary school.
