Twitter as learning environment #1

In the first #telic1 session the question 'Is Twitter a learning environment' was raised. I tweeted the question, and had some interesting food for thought.

It especially made me think deeper about 'what is learning?'. This is the essential, underlying question of course. And much has been said and written about the process. I came across this interesting Lab at the university of Ghent. And a PDF 'What is learning? On the nature and merits of a functional definition of learning.'

So I'm reading a bit more before digging into my next post 'Twitter as a learning environment #2'.
