Teaching & Learning using Social Media

Teaching & Learning using Social Media | eLearning through Social Media | Scoop.it

Social media is the collective of online communications channels dedicated to community-based input, interaction, content-sharing and collaboration. Social media also refers to the means of interactions among people in which they create, share, and/or exchange information and ideas in virtual communities and networks. Social Media is the current trend of communication, presenting a countless array of internet based tools and platforms that increase and enhance the sharing of information. This idea and form of media makes the transfer of text, photos, audio, video, and information in general increasingly fluid among internet users. Websites and applications dedicated to forums, microblogging, social networking, social bookmarking, social curation, and wikis are among the different types of social media. This is all well and good .. but how does this play role in the educational landscape?

I’m afraid I have to tell you that the full stop is dying. Period | eLearning through Social Media | Scoop.it
A beloved punctuation mark is dying, ladies and gentlemen. Thanks to rapid-fire electronic communication, the full stop, the period, the end-of-sentence marker – whatever you call it – is struggling to retain its place in our language. We’re replacing the poor thing with exclamation marks, ellipses, line breaks and emoticons, and, in situations where none of those seems appropriate, we’re happy to leave it out altogether. The dot that Aristophanes of Byzantium bestowed upon us in 200BC is becoming superfluous; it’s now deemed to be too serious, too stuffy and lacking in sincerity.
