Hargadon: Ugh. Classic Politics Now Extends to Social Networking in Education...
Great commentary from Steve Hargadon, creator of Classroom 2.0 social network for educators, on the inadvisability of top-down attempts to 'harness' social networks in education...
- "that social media and personal learning networks can be directed from the top down"
- "that someone from the top needs to choose the best resources. This is closely related to, and maybe an inherent part, of seeing education as a set of outcomes rather than a process."
