Getting Started with Cyberlearning in Biology Classes Everyone is buzzing about the potential impact of social networking, web 2.0 tools, and emerging communications technologies on science education. This webinar will introduce “cyberlearning” as a framework for using these tools to support learner-centered approaches to biology education. Cyberlearning  focuses on the effective use of networked communications and computational tools to engage in important scientific and learning practices. This webinar will give you the opportunity to explore several cyberlearning resources and provide examples of how these approaches can be used in biology courses.  http://www.aibs.org/events/webinar/getting-started-with-cyberlearning-in-biology-classes.html
