The fourth stage was the use of social media to build a social learning network based on content and experience sharing and creation. The following web 2.0 services were used as a distributed platform able to support our experimental learning system: a) Panoramio (http://www.panoramio.com/user/7606828) (Figure 6) as a geo-referenced photo-sharing service over Google Maps and Google Earth for sharing project’s essential results; b) Twitter (https://twitter.com/maps_of_time) (Figure 7), as a social network and micro-blogging service for short announcements and comments; c) Google+ (https://plus.google.com/114705936110835992130?hl=en#114705936110835992130/posts?hl=en) (Figure 8), as a platform for sharing and tagging multiple content (photo, video), blogging and video chatting service with the recent Google Hangout, for sharing educational content; d) Google Drive (Levin, 2013) for cloud storage and collaborative document editing. We also created a YouTube channel for public distribution of video content (https://www.youtube.com/TimemapsNet), (Rusu et al., 2013) and a Facebook page of Vădastra School (https://www.facebook.com/scoalaVădastra).
