Welcome to topic 3 – Collaborative learning and communities

We hope you are all well and that you are feeling more and more comfortable in the ONL environment!  Topic 2 on Digital Literacy – or as we have seen, it is rather Literacies – seems to have given you ample opportunity to reflect on and identify how these relate to your current personal and professional practice. The PBL groups are active and seeing the resulting shared findings from the group work towards the end of each topic/week is rewarding. Reading your reflections in the main ONL community on your ‘Digital me’ is really interesting – do take some time to read each other’s blog posts and be active in commenting on individual blogs and the shared findings from the PBL groups!

In this week’s topic, starting today, we will 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!

Tonight, May 5th, at 5-6 pm (17:00-18:00) CET, there will be a webinar with Steve Wheeler. Come and watch his presentation and discuss about the topic of the week! You may also want to follow his blog http://steve-wheeler.blogspot.se/.

There will also be a Tweet chat on Thursday, May 7th, at 8-9 pm (20:00-21:00) CET, led by Alastair Creelman. 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
