This subject examines the educational practices of connected learning environments within distributed networks of people and institutions, including schools, information organisations and online communities. Global knowledge networking is introduced as an active and complementary partnership of online tools, information access, information distribution and pedagogic practices, which are underpinned by social, ubiquitous, blended and personalised learning. Research foundations and case studies will define the value and function of personal knowledge networks in a global context. The subject examines tools and opportunities to produce, circulate, curate and comment on new media and explore the affordances of popular peer-culture tools and community-based knowledge for connected learning both locally and globally.
