Session Abstract

Across the globe, there are several exciting new initiatives underway to connect collaborators in new, robust ways leveraging web 2.0 and social networking sites. In the US, the Internet2 K20 Initiative has developed such a social networking system to help connect advanced network-enabled innovators across the K20 community to each other and to other communities around the world. In the UK, JANET Collaborate Pilot Project has been recently launched with the aim of allowing educators in schools, colleges and museums to find opportunities to collaborate with each other. And, elsewhere in the world including (Australia, The Netherlands, and Switzerland) similar efforts are underway to answer the perennial question of how to find resources, people, and collaboration opportunities for use in education. The panel on social networking sites will include James Werle, Co-Chair K20 Initiative; Jennifer Oxenford; Associate Director, MAGPI; and Tim Boundy, Project Manager for JANET Collaborate. In addition to presenting their case-studies, other issues to be covered by the panel include underlying architecture, multi-linguality, authentication, and data protection/privacy.
