In order to connect members, but also non-members, of the international society for cultural-historical activity research, on several social networks we created groups, topics and interests. Those interested in this theory and research area can, using the networks below, connect, keep up to date and even cooperate. This was an initiative started at the 2013 ISCAR summer university in Moscow.
On Facebook there is an open group page called ISCAR, you can find it here;
On LinkedIn there is also an open group called ‘ISCAR intenational network’ here;
On ResearchGate you can find several topics related to ISCAR, but we created an additional topic ISCAR;
On Academia.edu we did the same as on ResearchGate with a research interest, it’s also called ‘ISCAR network’
On Youtube several video’s are placed on CHAT topics by, among others, Marilyn Fleer. Search for, for example ‘Cultural historical theory’,’ perzjevanie’, or go to the video’s of Marilyn Fleer: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNULBvqxdcSp31osNlUJInQ

Since most researchers and academics already use social networking websites/platforms the ISCAR executive committee is trying to explore ways of using those networks to support connection and/or cooperation between ISCARmembers (and others interested). We therefore created a short questionaire to hear the toughts of the members on this issue.
In addition, as a result of a discussion during the ISCAR summer University this year, we started groups/topics and interests on some of the widely used networks as an experiment.
On Facebook and LinkedIn these groups are pretty straight forward, once you’ve found them, follow/subscribe and you will be kept updated on posts in the group and can connect to members in the group.
Let see where this goes!
Hope to connect soon.
