In this free webinar,Prof. Sheizaf Rafaeli, of Haifa University, will critique the uses of computers and networks in teaching, educating and learning. Actors and stakeholders in the educational enterprise need to make informed, assertive and constructive use of social networks. Networks are where our students spend their time, and where knowledge is constructed, shared and stored. It is the educators' responsibility to infuse the news with content based on sharing and play.
