Abstract

The rise of social software, often termed Web 2.0, has resulted in
heightened awareness of the opportunities for creative and innovative
approaches to learning that are afforded by network technologies. Social
software platforms and social networking technologies have become
part of the learning landscape both for those who learn formally within
institutions, and for those who learn informally via emergent web-based
learning communities. As collaborative online learning becomes a reality,
new skills in communication and collaboration are required in order to use
new technologies effectively, develop real digital literacy and other 21st
century skills.
