5 Reasons We Use Social Media - Edudemic

5 Reasons We Use Social Media - Edudemic | Connecting with technology | Scoop.it
There are many reasons we use social media. From the basic to the more advanced, the tool is simply ubiquitous and addictive. This infographic sheds some light for us all.
Catherine Smyth's insight:

The dizzying array of social media tools can be overwhelming. My favourites for teaching and building a professional community are Scoop.it and Twitter. I love Scoop.it because of its accessilbity and how I can connect with people all over the world. The influence of social media is incredible as the statistics on the graphic on this blog show and as educators, we need to think about the implications of this for teaching and learning.

Catherine Smyth's curator insight, August 10, 2014 11:12 PM

The Kinship Module project is a pilot online education program that promotes Aboriginal cultural education at a university level.

By undertaking the module you will gain a greater understanding of and insight into:

experience of Aboriginal Kinship systems and how they operateAboriginal social structures and how these differ from Western societieshow cultural assessment assists in understanding these impactspotential conflict in working with people from differing cultural backgroundshow cultural difference impacts upon Aboriginal people in the social systems which operate in Australia, such as: through education, criminal justice systems and the legal system more broadly.

A useful tool to support the online module is the suite of narratives from Aboriginal people. These narratives explore cultural and service issues that are relevant to student, teachers and others who work to support Aboriginal communities.

The narratives also provide additional and more in-depth information on cultural identity, the impacts of cross-cultural differences, and issues of importance for Aboriginal people when working in a number of service areas, such as education, social welfare, law and health.

如何策展你所阅读的任何内容的简单学习过程:看奈尔笔记方法。

康奈尔笔记法将笔记本分为三栏:大区域的主栏、条目栏(线索栏)、总结栏。

记笔记方法为”5R's”法:

1.Record- 在主栏中,尽可能多地记录一些重要事实、思想、概念等。

2.Reduce,归纳- 在线索栏,将这些事实,思想和概念归纳概括为一个词汇、或一句短话。

3.Recite,背诵 - 利用线索栏的提示,尽可能全面、而非机械地,用你自己的语言复述你所记录的主栏中有关讲座内容的事实、思想,然后对照笔记确认你所讲的。

4.Reflect,反思 - 思考这些材料与课程、单元/被讨论的科目之间的关系,这部分内容卸载总结栏。

5.Review,总结 - 每周花10分钟快速回顾你的笔记,你将会记住你所学习的大部分内容。
