Why you should listen to Carol: Frontliner Session:  Wed Sept 14, 2011  12:30pm - 1:00pm

What is new, is the fact that the Web has facilitated networking across greater geographical distances and individuals are personalising their own social networks with the help of the Web. Not only are these online social networks being used for social connections, they also provide tools for personalising learning and have the ability to facilitate personal learning networks (PLNs). This presentation will explore how microblogging tools such as Twitter are being employed to share knowledge and their role in PLNs
