The future of learning is evolving from the traditional one-to-one exchange between teacher and student to a dynamic model that thrives on networking, collaboration, and sharing. This chapter focuses on how you can start learning with social networking services. That applies whether you’re a teacher recognizing the need to continually be learning, a professional updating his or her expertise with new discoveries and practices, or a student working on a school project. I look at learning with Twitter, collecting and sharing information with social bookmarking services such as Diigo, and sharing videos with Showyou. So go ahead and sit back, relax, and invite the world to your living room. It’s okay; you won’t have to provide dinner.
