Technology can provide students with the ability to connect, collaborate, create and share knowledge with peers and experts locally and around the world. This session will discuss how some students are creating learning networks and leveraging digital content to enhance learning outside of the classroom. Participants will have the opportunity to share how students are using social networks, online communication tools, open educational resources and other digital technologies to enhance learning. In addition, barriers that prevent more students from implementing these learning strategies will be discussed and most importantly how we support this type of learning.
