GwynethJones's insight:

WOW....this is another example of an unattractive sense of entitlement that some of our kiddos exhibit. Rather than be embarrassed over being fired and called out, she's unrepentant and proud! WOW!


Being E-Famous will not pay the bills. Esp. with this attitude. And months later, people still find this story and RT it. Also, the comments are interesting.


That being said, I'm REALLY glad there wasn't social media when I was growing up. I shudder to think the mistakes I would have made!

Social Learning does NOT mean Social Media

Social Learning does NOT mean Social Media | Social Media: Don't Hate the Hashtag | Scoop.it

"Even though both social learning and social media witness a lot of human interaction, social media plays a very small role in social learning in the workplace. Instructional designers need, besides real face-to-face collaboration during the learning process, a digital watercooler around which employees gather, have high quality conversations and discuss about possible solutions to business problems."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 16, 5:08 PM
The 70 and 20% seem to point at communities of practice as being important for adults as they learn. Social media plays a small role. As well, even amongst adults, personal motivation is important. In that case, social media is likely only effective if the person is motivated to learn, has time to access the learning, and is capable of using the media being used. This is important for teachers who are often isolated from others, often working on their own, and little access to social media during the course of their daily work.

It's a no-brainer. Positive messages are nicer to read anyway! If you are going to talk about work on social media, talk it UP, not down!

Denis Lundie's curator insight, February 20, 12:06 PM

A very relevant question. Educators are in an uncomfortable position between the right to express themselves as they like in a public (or private) forum and their social role as educators and 'role models'.

Despite the fact that LinkedIn is the largest social network for professionals in the world and one of the most powerful networking tools available, it is very common for people to view LinkedIn as solely a B2B platform. Although this statement may be correct, LinkedIn with its 335+ million members, in 200 countries, with 19 languages, is definitely much more than that. Let's identify some ways you can use LinkedIn.
