Welcome to Topic 3 – Collaborative learning and communities

We hope you are all well and that you feel more and more comfortable with the ONL environment and activities. We are happy to see that topic 2 on Digital literacies seem to have given you good opportunities to reflect on and identify how these relate to your current personal and professional practice. It is wonderful to see that so many of you have reflected on your ‘Digital me’ and that many also engaged in the ONL community discussion with Kristina. There is good activity in most PBL groups and it is really interesting to read the shared findings from the group work each week. We hope that you all continue to be active in commenting on individual blogs and the shared findings from the PBL groups.

In this topic starting today we will have the opportunity to discuss collaborative learning & communities. We think you will find this topic very valuable as this is at the very heart of the ideas behind ONL. Please see Topic 3 for more information!.

During this topic we are arranging a webinar on Friday 14 Nov 2.30-3.30 pm (CET) where you will have the opportunity to meet Steve Wheeler and to discuss “Personal learning networks and environments” (PLN/PLE). You may also want to follow his blog http://steve-wheeler.blogspot.se/

We have noticed that several of you have started using Twitter and we encourage you all to learn more about and try out Twitter as one of the tools in building Personal Learning Networks. You can view Alastairs video “What is Twitter?” to learn more.

We wish you all another exciting week and see you online.

The ONL team
