Infographic: How Social Media Is Changing The World

Infographic: How Social Media Is Changing The World | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it

We know that social media so pervasive that it affects many aspects of our lives, but this infographic thoroughly examines the impact that social media has made. 

Created by the folks at My Life, this infographic charts the shift in power in the music industry as well as the fact that brand posts on Facebook reach their target audience within half-an-hour. 

Other tidbits include the fact that 89% of employers have hired people through LinkedIn, and that professors also use social media to educate their students. 

View some highlights of the infographic at the article link or view it in its entirety here.

With the influence that social media has in the 21st century, it is important to understand the benefits and negative aspects that it can bring upon education. In regards to positive influences, it allows students to be able to contact teachers with ease (not so much in primary education, but at university level), and allows the sharing of information to be easily accessed. However some negative aspects could include harassment and safety or this information being exploited. It's important for students to grow up with knowledge around the use of ICTs and the use of social media but more importantly to use it properly.

Looks more like a walk down an exhibit hall of vendors than skill/talent tied to teaching & learning.

If every teacher had this skill set, that would dramatically change teaching and learning. The "vendors" are, contrary to your suggestion, mostly free technologies that can and do change teaching and learning.
Richard Whiteside's curator insight, February 19, 2016 5:10 AM

These and many other tools are available. But if you are a teacher, what do you think? Is it really necessary to have all these skills? There is so much content readily available online and if you can organise to prepare materials in teams, or have access to a PLN on or offline, then you can share the load. 

 

Some teachers and content creators have specific skills and their expertise can be used or accessed by anyone. Personally, I think it's good for teachers to be aware of the digital possibilities for their teaching context, but it is generally unrealistic for anyone to expect all teachers to become skilled in so many different areas. 

 

Is it not better to pick fewer areas more relevant to you and focus on them? Be a master of a few areas useful to you, not a jack of all trades feeling stressed that you are master of none.

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing and How Writing is Taught in Schools

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing and How Writing is Taught in Schools | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it
In a survey of Advanced Placement and National Writing Project teachers, a majority say digital tools encourage students to be more invested in their writing by encouraging personal expression and providing a wider audience for their work.
