The case studies in this chapter explore the relationship of social media to learning and show how it creates an augmented networked learning experience which extends across, permeates and consequently disrupts understanding of learning in more traditional formal and non-formal spaces (see Fig. 9.1, Augmented Learning Space). In this way, social media establish a user-centred and co-constructed hybrid learning space; one that reaches beyond higher education’s boundaries to incorporate lifewide learning contexts and leading to the creation of a lifelong learning space.
