This paper is founded on the belief that the concept of Networked Learning, especially as defined by some of its key protagonists, deserves wider uptake and consideration, not least in the Networked Learning Conference. I will therefore attempt to provide a number of suggestions as to how this could be achieved. These will be based around two approaches. Firstly, to explore what might distinguish a student who had ‘Networked Learned’, and secondly, to broaden the usual meaning of the key concept of ‘promoting connections’ to consider factors which influence the take-up of Networked Learning. The intention is to promote discussion of the place of networked Learning amongst the community of its researchers and practitioners.
