Facilitate online collaborative learning

Nicola teaches GCSE students how to use their social networking skills to retrieve information more effectively and collaborate on revising for exams.  Students  find out how to  set up a personalised homepage (currently using iGoogle) and exploit RSS feeds to bring information directly to their desktop. The course outline: Online Study Skills is available to view on Google Docs.

A warts and all examination of the problems of trying to teach these vital social media skills in school can be found in this 6 minute talk that Nicola gave at a conference in 2010.
