New Constructivism in Learning

Elisabetta Cigonini posted a copy of the paper "Social software for knowledge construction and management in formal online learning" co-written with Maria Chiara Pettenati, Jose Mangione, and Elizabeth Guerin for the Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education. More here.

That piece adds yet to the growing recognition (by Academics) of 2.0 Technologies as a layer that could upgrade the formal learning environment (Read: As a subset of Lifelong Learning) of 21st century learners.

I like the part about PKM Skills (CREATE, ORGANIZE, SHARE) which seem to echo the 2D2C of Social Software.

Full pdf file is here.
