Joyce Valeneza:

 

I love searching Twitter.

 

And I love sharing how a Twitter search can dramatically impact student research, by connecting them with experts, encouraging them to develop current awareness, allowing them to listen in on the dialog of a particular field or niche, and, in some cases, enabling them to contribute to the conversation.

This is a great way to also teach the 21st Century skill of sharing and being involved. Traditional research does not allow for sharing and publishing.

An Eye On New Media 2013

Here is the 2013 version of my textbook that I curated for my students at Hannam University's Linton Global College.  Next year's vesion will include more of the teacher's notes that I share with my students.  I hope that it is helpful for you.  If you would like a free PDF version of the book, send me an email at kenmorrison30 (at) yahoo (dot) com or download it at the slideshare site.

 

I put a lot of work into the 2012 version.  I feel that it passed the test of time. There are some updates and additions in this version.  I also decreased the size of many images to make it less expensive to print.

 

Please please please support the real authors of this content.   I took great effort to give credit where it is due. I aimed to show my students how they could access enough free info on the web that was of equal or greater value than the wonderful information found in expensive textbooks. Feel free to share and please support the true authors of this book in any way you can (money, likes, blog comments, links, etc.) I am simply the currator of this content.

  

Ken

 

PS.  I simply love podcasts and I listen to more than 1000 per year.  I am planning on sharing some of my favorite tips that I learn from my daily podcasts at:

켄모리슨 교수님이 자신이 제작한 2013년 교재 "An Eye On New Media" 를 공유했다. 소셜미디어와 구글 아마존등 온라인 거물들의 역사와 지도자들을 간단하게 담아냈으며, 어떻게 하면 개인이나 집단이 이런 소셜미디어의 세계에서 성공할 수 있는지에 대한 많은 기사와 정보들을 모아놨다.

 

My professor from Linton Global College, Ken Morrison, has made his 2013 version curated book "An Eye on New Media". This curated book contains much information about how current social media was established and how  our new meida trend will change over time. 2012 version of this book really helped me a lot understanding the fundamental knowledge about media.

Searching all the tweets since 2006 does kick up some virtual dust.  I'm adding Topsy to my information discovery routine. In just a few minutes I found some great resources that would have slipped by without this great search tool.

I supposed twitter can be used or any tool can be used for anything,but some tools are made with certain intended affordance by the creator that would make the tool less effective for certain functions. curation in a way is capturing things void of time (i probably drawing too much from museum), while twitter is fast pace timeline of interactive (or one way) discourse.... they seems to be inherently different.

i'm just automatically sceptical when 'one tool can be use for all' theme appear. but it is an interesting suggestion.
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's comment, June 11, 2013 9:33 PM
Many people learn one tool and then move on to others. I like to analyze each and use the best features of that particular 2.0 project. I use twitter as a push tool to share info for the most part.
