The space for social media in structured online learning

The space for social media in structured online learning | English Language Arts | Scoop.it
In this paper, we explore the benefits of using social media in an online educational setting, with a particular focus on the use of Facebook and Twitter by participants in a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) developed to enable educators to learn about the Carpe Diem learning design process. We define social media as digital social tools and environments located outside of the provision of a formal university-provided Learning Management System.

Thanks Karen! I bought your new book Business Strorytelling for Dummies as soon as it got out. Great work! I am actually writing my own book about business storytelling. Finland needs one in Finnish language.The interest here is kind of building. I hope by fall when the book is out, it is in the roof :)

I am so excited for your Mervi! How wonderful about your book. And many thanks for grabbing mine :) Glad you like it. The more the merrier. Make sure I know when your book is out so I can buy my own copy and possibly do a review. Thanks!

Karen, I'll be glad to tell you when the book is out but it might be tricky for you to read it since it will be only available in Finnish. Finland is quite a small nation. Only 5 million people and culturally we are quite original too. That is one reason why we wanted to write a book just for Finnish audience. Things that work in American or other cultures don't necessarily work here. More about my wonderfull and weird country: http://finland.fi/ :)

Could be useful for study skills sessions or embedding functional English?

Download this Free book! Excellent resources.

Not research per se, but an e-book aimed at training teachers. Includes units on using apps and tools and fpcsing in general on the teaching of writing in the so-called 'digital age'.

 

No mere pamhplet either, this is a proper book!

Interesting to check out some time soon!

Jennifer Hincapie's curator insight, May 3, 10:07 PM
I decided to share this article to all my fellows, as it proposes very interesting tools to work with young learners and E learning, and it is of utmost importance to teach our kids how to use technology appropriately. We cannot reject the use of technology, we need to accept it, confront it, and better teach our learners how to use it
