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.

Caedmon's Retreat - 77 Print Studio

Caedmon's Retreat - 77 Print Studio | Digital Teesside | Scoop.it
 Cædmon (pronounced /ˈkædmən/ or /ˈkædmɒn/) is the earliest English poet whose name is known. An Anglo-Saxon herdsman attached to the double monastery of Streonæshalch (Whitby Abbey) during the abbacy of St. Hilda (657–680), he was originally ignorant of "the art of song" but learned to compose one night in the course of a dream, according to the 8th-century monk Bede. He later became a zealous monk and an accomplished and inspirational religious poet.

The Innovative Educator: Five Things Students Want Their Teachers to Know about Online Learning

The Innovative Educator: Five Things Students Want Their Teachers to Know about Online Learning | Digital Teesside | Scoop.it

Kids love having the opportunity to learn online but it’s not merely the medium or the technology that students enjoy. At the recent iNacol Virtual Schools Symposium I listened to high school students who have experience learning this way as well as teachers who have experience with these students, share some advice for making this type of learning even better.

Here is their advice as well as suggestions for tools that teachers can use to heed this advice.
