The Intersection of Digital Literacy and Social Media -- Campus Technology | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

This is how two hot concepts in higher education can be blended to beat the status quo and get educators and students on the same page with digital literacy.

 

Many times, it's the educators who stand in the way of effective digital literacy-social media connections. Getting them into the right mindset to meld the two can be a challenge, said Ward. "A cultural shift has to take place because most professors are used to working in their own silos," he explained. "They're not necessarily accustomed to sharing and don't like to be told how to teach or what to do." To overcome that obstacle, Ward said institutions must create a culture of accountability that includes continuous feedback, acknowledgement, and rewards to empower change.

Last month I was at The Schools Network‘s 2011 Annual Conference, and was fortunate to enjoy the keynotes of three particularly interesting educational thinkers – Alan November, Lord Puttnam and Tony Wagner.
