Higher education institutions are now seeking to provide learners with a more customized, engaged, personalised learning experience. To prepare “citizen 2.0”, it is vital to use the digital communicative tools and digital media that are in use today. In this case study webs 2.0 tools and scenarios for learning are used in learning tasks to connect learners. The context for the study is “social informatics”. Social informatics explores the impact of informatics on society in areas such as egovernment, e-leaning and e-law and deals with the social, cultural, philosophical, ethical, legal, public policy and economic issues relating to information technologies. The unit incorporates multiple advanced digital social tools where students can share ideas, communicate and co-create content to enable them to engage fully within a learning community and to develop digital literacy and e-citizenship skills.
