What Connected Learning Truly Promotes Might Surprise You

What Connected Learning Truly Promotes Might Surprise You | Business | Scoop.it

"Continuing to teach in the stretching shadow of technology while only dealing with it through glimpses and gimmick is an awkward arrogance we may be dealing with for some time to come. But while education bickers on about how to best educate children, those children are making powerful moves–sometimes intentionally, sometimes as thoughtless, drifting trends–to fully reinvent the way human beings connect."

Nikolaus Wood's insight:

Business in terms of infomation technology is interesting. When education comes into the picture it becomes important to make sure that the product is actually useable for the students and that it can be used in a way that will benifite not only the students but also the teachers.

When you think of technology do you think of connected learning? Do you consider how you can use the Internet? Have you considered what the word Internet means: "inter, meaning connected, and net, as in network, visualizing multiple connectors and connectees."

Many of our students have access to the Internet, and they use that access outside of school. How? They communicate, text messaging, twitter, video and more. 

This post explores what may happen as more and more students connect using social media. After exploring acces the post moves on to discuss how technology impacts "peer performance" (and assessment). Technology provides tools that allows students to curate and critique performance.

The final section explores how this common experience has the potential to impact learners, in "visible and invisible ways."

Social Privacy in Networked Publics: Teens’ Attitudes, Practices, and Strategies by Danah Boyd, Alice E. Marwick :: SSRN

Social Privacy in Networked Publics: Teens’ Attitudes, Practices, and Strategies by Danah Boyd, Alice E. Marwick :: SSRN | Business | Scoop.it

This paper examines how teens understand privacy in highly public networked environments like Facebook and Twitter. We describe both teens’ practices, their privacy strategies, and the structural conditions in which they are embedded, highlighting the ways in which privacy, as it plays out in everyday life, is related more to agency and the ability to control a social situation than particular properties of information. Finally, we discuss the implications of teens’ practices and strategies, revealing the importance of social norms as a regulatory force.

Nikolaus Wood's insight:

Honestly people will never be intelligent about what they put online. Expecting the least rational of our population to do anything intelligent is pure stupidity and is completely beyond me.
