Between 'Instructions' and 'Diy': Tagging in Learning Communities
In this paper, we discuss the novel technology tagging and the results of analyzing a learning community in a popular system that relies on tagging namely YouTube. We present our findings that young people use tagging as social technology and tags to create a vocabulary among friends and communities. We argue that tags can be used to facilitate sharing and understanding in learning communities. Finally we give an example how to apply tagging to a learning environment.
