What is a Pathfinder?

A pathfinder is a guide for on-line learners. It is like leaving breadcrumbs so that the author (and others) can quickly retrace their steps and easily locate important resources. Pathfinders have been used by librarians and researchers for many years. Really good pathfinders are useful as reference tools and to guide those who are motivated, independent learners.

On this blog, I will attempt to do thorough job, be creative, and find the best possible resources about Learning 2.0. Since I want to be able to demonstrate the usefulness of a pathfinder and to be able to show others what one looks like, it is my intention that this will an example of good pathfinder.
