Social media new territory for teachers | Digital Teesside | Scoop.it
Teachers in the Appleton area are plugging into Facebook and Twitter to connect with students, but being 'friends' with a student on social media sites is still a gray area for many educators.

As a communication tool it may be fine, but a Parent or Teacher should toe the line as a responsible Adult and not be a close friend to children

Designing for Learning: Online social Networks as a Classroom Environment.

Designing for Learning: Online social Networks as a Classroom Environment. | Digital Teesside | Scoop.it

Numerous papers extolling the learning potential of online social networks and so called Web 2.0 services have been written by educational technology enthusiasts and innovators. The capacity for creativity, interactivity and collaboration afforded by these new social networking tools would appear to be a good fit for education. However, very few articles have been based on classroom research in actual learning environments with students and teachers.

 

This is a study well worth reading and thinking about because it focusses on teaching and learning. It demonstrates clearly that the use of social networking can be used successfully in the processes of learning. Designing for Learning: Online Social Networks as a Classroom Environment provides a model for schools to consider as a starting point for using social networking in pedagogy.
