2013 ought to be moving us forward. We ought to have some good skills by now in how to connect and share. Learnist is a site which appears to have moved us all forward in terms of sharing and building our knowledge. It has a separate tab for education and yet the whole site predicates on sharing knowledge in skills. In a way it appears to be similar to Pinterest in that people create learning boards which they then share. One of the boards is about using Learnist in a High School classroom and the way the material/content is organised certainly lends itself to being a site which could become interesting and reliable for finding out things. I have noticed most contributors appear to be using real names and real pictures of themselves. I think we have reached that stage where we need to abandon the colourful names and avatars and just represent ourselves in virtual society without the barricades or dressing up. That’s another post, though! You can sign in with your email or Facebook and the site maintains you keep full control over your privacy. It is trying to keep people real and safe so that learners and knowledge seekers can relate to online people in much the same way as they relate to colleagues, authors, professors, teachers and experts in real life. Certainly worth a look if you are interested in learning.
