Social media in education: a student perspective | Jisc

Social media in education: a student perspective | Jisc | Digital Literacy - Education | Scoop.it
We recently launched a call to find 50 of the most influential HE professionals on social media. We've been hearing from all kinds of academics and lecturers about the ways in which they use social media to generate change or improve things in their institutions - but what do the students think? We took the opportunity to speak to some students taking part in Jisc's Summer of Student Innovation to find out.
Anthony Beal's insight:

Interesting that there seems to be more use, by some students, of Facebook rather than Twitter for studying. One student talks about setting up revision groups on Facebook and crowdsourcing answers to past exam papers.

 

 Lectures are praised for making the effort to go on social media courses. One student commented how useful it is when her lecturer uses Twitter hash tags to pass on information regarding courses and modules. This includes links to journals and academic papers.

Social media, digital presence and hen harriers

Social media, digital presence and hen harriers | Digital Literacy - Education | Scoop.it
Who I am in my personal life informs who am in my professional life, and that will be true for most people. This is often expressed in my work life by hearing colleagues tell me about what their kids are doing at school with the curriculum or technology. Personal informs “professional” and vice versa. Now, with social media, we get to choose how we express and how much we express about these facets of our lives. For me, I have chosen not to keep separate accounts, after all I am the same person whether I am running a workshop on digital leadership or a hiding under a bush photographing a rare bird or trying to identify a warbler.
Anthony Beal's insight:

Take a look at the Visitor and Resident Map created by @Lawrie . Helps me to get my head round this concept.

Enhancing student services with digital engagement

Enhancing student services with digital engagement | Digital Literacy - Education | Scoop.it
There is no question that UK higher education (HE) is changing. Conversations and essays about the importance of the student experience abound, but we can see it simply by looking at the different channels and evolving nature of student-staff interactions. 
Anthony Beal's insight:

Comment on this blog, by Simon Thomson, recognising the high quality social connectivity many UK libraries have with their customers:

"...I think other university service areas could learn a lot from their libraries. They know how to connect with people & they know they must be in the same spaces as their customer base in order to do that."

Wales' radical curriculum overhaul wins cross-party support

Wales' radical curriculum overhaul wins cross-party support | Digital Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

Plans to modernise Wales’ national curriculum by ensuring pupils are “digitally competent” by the time they leave school have received cross-party support.

 

The Welsh Conservatives, Welsh Liberal Democrats and Plaid Cymru have all thrown their weight behind the findings of Professor Graham Donaldson’s wide-ranging review of curriculum and assessment arrangements.


His report, commissioned by the Welsh Labour Government, champions six “areas of learning and experience” as the basis for Wales’ new schools offer, which would underpin all learning from the age of three through to 16.


Prof Donaldson supports the introduction of three “cross-curriculum responsibilities” – literacy, numeracy and digital competence – that all teachers would be expected to deliver.

Figuring out what people know about all things digital when they enter a new environment would be exceptionally helpful for folks who work in staff development.
