Social Networking in FSD

April 30, 2010 at 5:48 pm Leave a comment

Hi all,

A number of you have asked me for some true social networking tools such as personal learning portfolios, blogging, personal web page development, file sharing, and social bookmarking.

MyNet is a tool that does all of this. It is driven not by a classroom model – such as our learning management system (Moodle) uses, but instead by a user profile model – like facebook and mynet use. For example a student could choose to populate their personal dashboard with the tools that they want to use:

and then share their content with others that they’ve identified as friends. Most importantly as this is an in house server, ONLY Foothills School Division staff and students can become friends. Also, as students use their FSD logins to access the server (as they do with moodle) their content is always attached to their name.

MyNet is a true social network. That means that all content – whether pictures, files, bookmarks, blogs, etc – is a conversation. Every object visible to your friends includes a comment box for your friends to give feedback. This makes it very powerful as a portfolio tool.

If you would like to learn more, please feel free to contact me.
