Networked Learning - A social practice perspective

Jones, Chris (2008). Networked Learning - A social practice perspective. In: 6th International Conference on Networked Learning, 5-6 May 2008, Halkidiki, Greece.


This paper proposes a social practice perspective on networked learning. Networked learning doesn’t privilege any particular view of learning and the paper does not claim any special status for a social practice view but it sets out a clear agenda and demarcation for this area of study. The suggestion is that social practice can provide a theoretical lens that allows researchers to examine learning, and networked learning specifically, in ways that other perspectives do not and that a social practice approach is especially appropriate for research focused on the kinds of changes that are taking place around what has been termed Web 2.0.
