Educational Networking – home
“”Educational Networking” is the use of social networking technologies for educational purposes. Because the phrase “social networking” can carry some negative connotations for educators, the phrase “educational networking” may be a way of more objectively discussing the pedagogical value of these tools. The original URL for this site (http://socialnetworksined.wikispaces.com) still works, but http://www.EducationalNetworking.com is now the main URL.”
