Inspiration from Jackie Gerstein.  Will share with my Social Media class.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 4, 2014 12:41 PM

Communities of Practice are organic and creative processes. Several years ago the term came into education as if School managers could structure them and order them.

Clive on Learning: Questioning social media

Clive on Learning: Questioning social media | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it

"The recent arrival of a new social network in the form of Google+ has given cause for reflection from some long-serving social media users and advocates. ...

More remarkably, George Siemens, the founding father of connectivism, reports how he is losing interest in social media: ...

I must admit to having felt similarly fatigued at the prospect of engaging with Google+. No way did my life need another social network. It's hard enough as it is to keep up with Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. But the Google offering is significant. It contains some interesting innovations. And as someone who is expected to know about these things, I could not ignore it. Already I am in a network with several hundred people on Google+ who are doing the same as me - giving it a go."

elearnspace › Losing interest in social media: there is no there there

"Google+ was a bit of a breaking point for me. After recreating my online social network ( largely based on blogs from early 2000) in Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and Quora, G+ was a chore. I spent a few weeks of responding to G+ friend requests, trying to engage with a few people, posting a few random links, all the while trying to upkeep (occasionally) Twitter and (almost never) Facebook. I’ve concluded that most of the hype around social media is nonsense and that people, particularly the self-proclaimed social media elite are clothing-less. Sure, I’ll still continue to participate in those spaces periodically – as soon as this post is done, I’ll tweet it and share it on G+. Beyond that, however, social media is getting credit for things it’s merely flowing, not actually creating."
