Karen Melhuish: Social learning: what is it and how does it relate to schools?

Session Overview

This session will explore the ways in which social media and collaborative 'web 2.0' tools allow for connected communities to develop around a learning focus. We will consider what social learning is, why it matters, and tools that support this way of working.
