Review: Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media

Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media by John Dron
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I've had both a physical and a digital copy of this book for ages, but only really gone through select passages since I've had it. This time around I read through it cover to cover. It's interesting to read about sets, nets, groups, and collectives, and how they are instantiated using various technologies. I am also happy to read more about the Author's experience with the Landing. As a user of the Landing (as well as an admin of my own academic community), it's interesting to see challenges that others have had in similar situations. Worthwhile read.  Now, the next big challenge is to see how some of these things fit into my dissertation.  The Group stuff (and maybe the Net examples) fit in with what I think my dissertation topic will kick up, but I need to put it aside for now.  Part of me wishes I was doing grounded theory so I could ignore the literature review for now ;-)
