The Emerging Use of Networks in Education.
Evers, Nancy A.
As part of a symposium intended to present a conceptual framework for networking and to discuss the implications of network usage for education research and practice, this paper presents a review of the leading change strategies and poses a definition of education change network. Education change network is defined as a linkage structure that has been deliberately created to help the user system solve its identified problems. Its form is composed of linkage relationships, and its function is problem-solving by, and for, the user system through effective use of resources accessed via linkage relationships. (Author/MLF)
