efest - eTLC2009 - day 2 afternoon keynote

Joyce Seitzinger from EIT presented on "You are not alone" centred on social networking sites including twitter and blogs. We are able to connect & contribute but there are thousands of web 2.0 sites, too much information to access!

Where to start? Join a community of practice. Find a community which appeals eg everybody, trademe. Ning was used as a site for the eTLC09. This is more than a website as it includes many opportunities for networking. Examples of smaller communities include online conferences & Special interest groups.

Start a personal learning network. Maybe based on a blog, wiki or a social networking site.
