Week 8: Power and Authority


Overview
Networked technologies have changed power and authority. This, networked learning has a great deal in common with approaches to learning that focus on personal empowerment and freedom. The readings (and the Castell lecture) provide insight into how networks alter power and authority. 2011 was a significant year in online, social, and digital networks challenging existing power structures. As you engage in the readings this week, reflect on how networks influence the traditional school and education structure in society.
