Value proposition for social learning space

Teachers: tool for teaching/learning creatively and collaboratively

Students: platform for life-long learning via e-portfolios, which can work as a searchable CV, and for social networking (Think: explode.elgg.org)

School Administrators: mechanism for managing knowledge and collaborating with other institutions

Parents: vehicle to "monitor" their children's progress and perhaps co-learn with them since it provides insights into the students' learning process

At the bottom of these is the powerful argument that learning is a social construct.

BTW this is also good for a larger economy that is underpinned by Culture and Arts/Tourism via Knowledge Management and Folk Knowledge.
