How to use social media to support your learning

A tag cloud with terms related to Web 2.Image via WikipediaMichele Martin has offered everyone an opportunity to learn about how to use social media. Michelle is a great blogger I follow who focuses on nonprofits and lifelong learning. Here's a quick overview:
The Bamboo Project Blog: "On Monday, September 29, Harold Jarche, Tony Karrer and I are opening the doors on a free 6-week learning event that will help people get up to speed on social media and how it can be used to support learning. The 'course' is sponsored by Work Literacy and the eLearning Guild, in part as a run-up to DevLearn 2008. But don't worry--everyone is welcome.

Each week we will share new activities that will allow you to explore different Web 2.0 tools and discuss their implications for learning. The activities can be done at your own pace and will be hands-on."
