Using Social Media In The Classroom For Real-World Learning | TeachThought

Using Social Media In The Classroom For Real-World Learning | TeachThought | Business Protocol | Scoop.it

Social media has become an essential part of most people’s everyday lives, from checking Facebook and Twitter to posting blogs, Pinterest listings, and uploading YouTube videos.

 

However, and with smartphones making it easier than ever to spend time on social media networks, in what ways can these networks be leveraged to engage and build a foundation for future student learning? While the potential of distraction is there, the right social media teaching strategies can lead to creative learning, and a productive approach to making social media part of ongoing professional development.

 

There is already evidence that teachers are using social media as part of teaching strategies, with the aim of encouraging students to view social networks as less of a pleasurable distraction, and more as something that can be used in projects and for personal expression in a medium they prefer. Steven Anderson has recently proposed a comprehensive set of general approaches to integrating social media into the classroom, and focuses on the need to carefully review existing teaching strategies and understandings of social media before making changes.

As We May Think: A 1945 Essay on Information Overload, “Curation,” and Open-Access Science | Brain Pickings

As We May Think: A 1945 Essay on Information Overload, “Curation,” and Open-Access Science | Brain Pickings | Business Protocol | Scoop.it

Tim O’Reilly recently admonished that unless we embrace open access over copyright, we’ll never get science policy right. The sentiment, which I believe applies to more than science, reminded me of an eloquent 1945 essay by Vannevar Bush, then-director of the Office of Scientific Research and Development, titled “As We May Think.”As the war, with its exploitation of science and technology, draws to a close, Bush turns a partly concerned, partly hopeful eye to where scientists will rediscover “objectives worthy of their best” and calls for “a new relationship between thinking man and the sum of our knowledge.”

 

Much of what Bush discusses presages present conversations about information overload, filtering, and our restless “FOMO” — fear of missing out, for anyone who did miss out on the memetic catchphrase — amidst the incessant influx. Bush worries about the impossibility of ever completely catching up and the unfavorable signal-to-noise ratio:

Australia: Adelaide gets NBN training wheels | Government News

Australia: Adelaide gets NBN training wheels | Government News | Business Protocol | Scoop.it

Adelaide City Council has become the latest local government looking to plug into the National Broadband Network after the city’s Mayor urged potentially tech-shy citizens to learn online and web technology skills through the Digital Hub training program.

 

Mayor Stephen Yarwood wants digitally challenged citizens to participate in the program which follows council making significant technology upgrades upgrades to its communications infrastructure, including free outdoor Wi-Fi in the city centre from November 2012.

 

The push by councils to harness the potential community benefits of the NBN comes as federal Communications Minister Stephen Conroy continues to hard-sell the massive project’s advantages directly to grass roots recipients.

 

Adelaide City Council this week sought community input into the city’s digital strategy “Connect Adelaide”, which aims to make Adelaide a “smart city” through access to modern technology. A key aim is more effective community engagement and feedback on decision making policies, services and projects.

2013 will be the perfect storm of necessity and opportunity: some economies will do OK(-ish), others will be shaky, but whatever market or industry you're in, those who understand & cater to changing consumer needs, desires and expectations will forever have plenty of opportunity to profit. A remapped global economy, new technologies (or 'old' technologies applied in new ways), new business models... hey, what's not to like?

Does Technology Make Us Stupid Or Smart? | TIME.com

Does Technology Make Us Stupid Or Smart? | TIME.com | Business Protocol | Scoop.it

Can a calculator make you smarter? The QAMA calculator can. You use it just like a regular calculator, plugging in the numbers of the problem you want to solve — but QAMA won’t give you the answer until you provide an accurate estimate of what that answer will be. If your estimate is way off, you’ll have to go back to the problem and see where you went wrong. If your estimate is close, QAMA (developed by Ilan Samson, an “inventor-in-residence” at the University of California, San Diego) will serve up the precise solution, and you can compare it to your own guess. Either way, you’ll learn a lot more than if you simply copied the answer that a calculator spit out.

 

Ever since journalist Nicholas Carr posed a provocative question — “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” — in a widely-read 2008 Atlantic magazine article, we’ve been arguing about whether the new generation of digital devices is leading us to become smarter, or stupider, than we were before. Now psychologists and cognitive scientists are beginning to deliver their verdicts. Here, the research on an array of technological helpers:

Education in the information age: is technology making us stupid? | The Conversation

Education in the information age: is technology making us stupid? | The Conversation | Business Protocol | Scoop.it

The pub argument is dead. Google killed it with a little help from your smartphone. Instead of long fought debates about who’s right and who’s wrong, an answer is nearly always within easy reach.

 

With so-called intelligent personal assistants becoming more sophisticated, it won’t be long before we have the same kind of access to information as the characters from Star Trek: “Siri, at maximum warp how long will it take to reach the bar?”

 

The question is, does this make us knowledgeable experts or is the easy access to information making us stupid?

Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012: The Flipped Classroom | Hack Education

Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012: The Flipped Classroom | Hack Education | Business Protocol | Scoop.it

“Flipping the classroom” is hardly new. But with all the hype surrounding both Khan Academy and MOOCs, it’s hardly surprising that the practice became incredibly popular this year.

 

Indeed, in his 2011 TED Talk (which has been watched over 2 million times on YouTube), Salman Khan talked about the ways in which his videos are used by teachers to “flip the classroom.” That is, in lieu of teachers lecturing in the classroom, the Khan Academy video lectures are assigned as homework; then students work on exercises in class where the teacher can more easily assist and remediate. “Flipping the classroom” has become a crucial part of the story that Khan repeats in his frequent talks and media appearances.

 

It’s also become part of the argument that Coursera co-founder Daphne Koller makes about how massive open online classes or MOOCs (which, duh, is another huge ed-tech trend of 2012) will change the offline university experience. When Coursera launched in April, she told me:
