Greenhow, Christine
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v8 n3 p187-194 2008
The recent editorial in this journal by Bull et al. ("Connecting Informal and Formal Learning Experiences in the Age of Participatory Media" Vol 8, Iss 2) discussed the challenges of bridging formal learning practices and informal learning opportunities within the context of today's Web-enhanced world. In this commentary, Christine Greenhow summarizes key points in the article, addressing what she sees as its central questions. Next, she offers three recommendations for bridging the gap between informal and formal learning and addresses the constraints that Bull et al. identify.
