I hope you can join us for this conversation. As Cooperative Extension begins to focus on grand challenges like food security, climate, water, etc., finding out more about building, facilitating and strengthening networks is critical. I'll talk with 4 Extension professionals who are working with networks on complex problems. I hope you can join us. ~ posted by +Bob Bertsch 
 
A conversation about how collective action networks are bringing people and organizations together to address complex issues and the roles Cooperative Extension professionals could play in them.

We'll hear from Jamie Bain, Noelle Harden and Stephanie Heim, authors of "Cultivating collective action: The ecology of a statewide food network," and from Jeff Piestrak, leader of the eXtension Local and Regional Food Systems Community of Practice, who has supported and participated in ag and food systems networks in the northeast U.S.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by eXtension Network Literacy. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

We have a new blog post that looks at why security experts recommend online safety practices that differ from what non-expert web-users recommend.

Do you really know the best ways to stay safe online? A recent post on the Google Online Security Blog showed that average web users focus on different tactics than those favored by security experts.

Helping professionals use online technologies to enhance communications, sharing and learning.
Introduction
The Network Literacy Community of Practice aims to build a community around learning in online networked environments. This community will use available/emerging networks, technology, and information to form the community and engage others; we will will also create scholarly resources on the use of online communication networks for a community of interest. The Network Literacy CoP will pursue information about new technologies, new ways of learning, new ways of working, and innovative approaches on the Internet, and trends around technology use for teaching and learning.

As part of the broader eXtension Initiative, the CoP is particularly focused on working with Extension and Military Family Service Professionals.
