As promised in my last post, I’m sharing my reading list from my graduate course on emerging technologies. The first topic we took up was social media learning, since I thought it might be somewhat familiar even if students weren’t able to use these kinds of tools much as yet (entirely possible given the roles they play and the kinds of organizations in which they work).
Here’s the reading list. Enjoy! And please share any resources that are your favorites in the comments.
