Open Teaching - Network Sherpa

The concept of "network sherpa" projects the role of teacher as one who knows "the terrain", guides students, but who is also led by student interests, objectives, and knowledge. The terrain in this case consists of media literacy (critique & awareness), social networks (connections), and knowledge.


The interactions between students here represent the notion of the gift economy. There are likely better ways to represent this type of interaction and student knowledge. Feedback is welcome.
