Social computing is a term coined to represent that increasingly computers are being used to mediate interaction between humans and that even information has a social life. Traditionally however, online learning has most often been an individual activity characterized by a sense of social isolation and little social interaction. Dr. Laffey will provide a framework for understanding the social nature of learning and the role of social ability in online learning. Examples will be given to show how social computing can be used in education and how systems, interface design, pedagogies and activities can be developed to better account for the social nature of learning.
