Towards a social learning space for open educational resources

In November 2010, Simon Buckingham Shum travelled to Barcelona to present our jointly authored paper at OpenED2010.

Buckingham Shum, Simon and Ferguson, Rebecca (2010). Towards a social learning space for open educational resources. In: OpenED2010: Seventh Annual Open Education Conference, 2-4 Nov 2010, Barcelona, Spain.

Short abstract

We identify a number of meanings of “Open”, as part of the motivating rationale for a social media space tuned for learning, called SocialLearn. We discuss why online social learning seems to be emerging so strongly at this point, explore features of social learning, and identify some of the dimensions that we believe characterize the social learning design space, before describing the emerging design concept and implementation.
