The Intersection of Digital Literacy and Social Media -- Campus Technology

The Intersection of Digital Literacy and Social Media -- Campus Technology | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it
As educators look for new ways to teach digital literacy or the use of digital technology to find, organize, comprehend, evaluate, and create information, some are turning to social media to help advance the concept in the college classroom.

 

"Digital literacy and social media is an inseparable and powerful combination," said William J. Ward, a social media professor at Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. "Done correctly, this combination enhances the quality and efficiency of teaching, research, learning, communicating, collaborating, and creating."

What Does it Mean to Live in An Interconnected Society?

Wow.  I really want to see this.  I was also happy to see/hear Howard Rheingold in this film preview.  I took a course from him last year.

Tiffany Shlain, founder of the Webby Awards, talks about today's interconnected society at The Economist's Ideas Economy: Information 2012 event in San Francisco. I wanted to bring this to your attention because what she is speaking about concerns all of us

 

What does it mean to live in a connected world? How is it changing us, our culture and the planet?

 

Her film "Connected" is a must see! It's thought provoking and captures the essence of the experience, the anxiety, overwhelm, mystery, commonality, rapture, looks at the potential and wonder of what innovation, knowledge, discovery lies ahead. 

 

Tiffany Shlain:

 

"Go as far as you can see and when you get there. you'll be able to see even farther"

 

Selected by Jan Gordon covering "Exploring Change and Ongoing Discussions"
