When conducting a learning activity in a social network collaborative learning among students should be supported by the instructor. Students should be encouraged to have an active exchange of ideas and resources, considering the instructor as a co-learner. A social network provides a level plane for active learning exchanges among learners. By creating this environment of collaboration a higher level of thoughts will be achieved and information will be retained longer (Johnson & Johnson, 1986). Students embrace the responsibility for their own learning and exploration of resources. As the instructor, your role becomes co-learner and affords you the opportunity to model the behaviors that best support active learning. You serve as facilitator to engage students with experts and professional organizations within the professional network. Lastly, you serve as moderator and encourage students to self-moderate the collective.
