Considerations about learning by social networks


  • Alvino Moser
  • Mario Sergio Cunha Alencastro




The aim of this paper is to present some considerations about the mediation that occurs in social networks and their potential uses in the teaching-learning process. Virtual communities on the Internet that bring together people who are online connected by common values and interests can be very important in educational activities, as long as they overcome the recreational use and apply its interactivity features to provide knowledge exchange, collective learning, and consequently contribute to a dialogical practice. To be included in this process, the teacher's function is no longer to transmit or disseminate knowledge in a unidirectional way, but to encourage students to connect with their colleagues in order to share knowledge and practices, thus consigning an experience of collaborative learning.

Key words: Social networks. Learning. Communities of practice. Teaching practice. Epistemology.
