In the philosophy of social constructivism, it is argued that categories of knowledge and reality are actively created by social relationships and interactions. This not only takes place between teachers and students, but between students in peer-to-peer relationships. Applying this concept to the classroom or online environment, it is possible, given the variety of technologies available, to set up self-organizing student learning communities, establishing many-to-many relationship between the members of the community. Content and knowledge developed by the community are created, publicized (syndicated) and shared (aggregated) within its framework. This learning community model can be applied to a course in virtually any subject, at any level. Collaborative technologies such as RSS feeds, wikis, blogs, and podcasts can be used to facilitate relationships between the pedagogy, the community members, the content, and the technologies.
