I am finally starting to feel in control again, after the whirlwind of a year it has been! With many, many commitments that have taken me away from the one thing that I really wanted to start this year, my Masters degree, I am now getting into the reading. I intend to share some of my thoughts about the different readings, here on this blog. For the moment, I am about to start reading ‘Social Network Theory and Educational Change’ ed. Alan J Daly. I am really looking forward to reading this book, largely because I want to explore the potential for social networks as having a place in schools. I don’t necessarily subscribe to the very alarmist ways in which social networks are systematically blocked in schools, without any critique. I hope to develop a more informed opinion and hope the research does suggest that social networks can lead to positive reforms in education systems. Well, that’s my hope and anticipation.
