ABSTRACT

Open Networked Learning – Architectures of Participation
The Web, social tools and the convergence of different digital media have brought about more opportunities to learners and educators throughout the world. Exposure and access to diverse local and international online communities of practice, along with the blend of formal and informal learning, challenge us to re-think our basic assumptions about knowledge acquisition, traditional classroom delivery and e-learning.

In this keynote, Barbara Dieu will show how we can harness the networking power of these tools and communities to engage in participatory communication and collective knowledge building.

During this presentation we will celebrate not only what is possible but what is already happening and invite participants to reflect on how an architecture of participation can facilitate creativity, openness, interaction and sustainable partnership
