“...the complexities of the issues surrounding poverty and two-generation issues today are “so deep and so severe and so opportunistic that we can’t afford to do this on our own. No one organization or sector could accomplish these challenges on its own. We have to think about how to layer on the networks to deal with the layers that exist and get to this ultimate goal of opportunity for all. Networking is the only way we can do that.” #netlit -posted by Bob Bertsch

Below Anastasia Salter recommends a few Chrome extensions for customizing your online experience. What browser extensions/add-ons do you use? #netlit - posted by Bob Bertsch
Ever since reading Natalie's post on the Momentum Chrome extension, I've been paying more attention to the Chrome browser app marketplace. I was immediately converted to Momentum, as it's built in to-do list tool and simple aesthetic make it a really easy way to stay on track.

I use Buffer, Diigo Web Collector, Evernote Web Clipper, LastPass, Pinterest Pin It Button regularly. I have a couple installed that I don't use as often but may be of interest, Presentation Remote for Google Drive (use your smartphone as a presentation remote) and ImageQuilts (create and customize an "image quilt"  made up of images from whatever web page you are on).

If it's on the Internet is has to be true. Right?

We'll be hosting a session on assessing the reliability of online information on April 20th at 1PM Eastern

It will be a "flipped" webinar: Rather than just deliver you a presentation, you will be asked to review and submit feedback about three websites (about fracking) before the session. During the live session, we will discuss the sites, your feedback, processes for evaluating them, and ask you to actively participate in the discussion.

Story
Tagline
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.
