Nik Peachey: How I use social media for my professional development

Nik Peachey: How I use social media for my professional development | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

The issue of how we use social media for our own development as teachers and as digitally skilled individuals is of vital importance, not just because it can enable us to keep developing as teachers through the content, ideas, resources and above all people it gives us access to, but also because the way we use digital media for our own development should guide and influence the way we use it with our students and build their digital literacies and communication skills.

It's not about adding technology to training, but about changing training

It's not about adding technology to training, but about changing training | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

From development to co-creation


When it comes to developing the solution(s), once again it is not a matter of the Learning Consultant taking over the task – and delivering a fully-formed resource for them, but is more about helping the team to co-create their own solution. A great example of this is the collaboration platform that was built for LV= customer service reps. This initiative has now won a number of awards, and (as a judge for one of the awards) I am convinced its success is wholly due to the fact that it was the CSR team themselves who identified this approach as the solution to their problem, rather than it being imposed upon them.

Blogging as literacy

Blogging as literacy | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

In the social media universe, blogging is potentially the most powerful tool. Time and again, blogging is proving its worth in education and training, with countless learners discovering that sharing their ideas, sharing content and discussion ideas worldwide has a whole range of benefits. Blogging requires a particular set of literacies to ensure that its potential is realised.

One of the new digital literacies bloggers need is the ability to encapsulate ideas succinctly and in a form that is accessible and engaging. Another literacy is the ability to be able to devise posts that draw an audience and provoke responses. One of the most powerful aspects of blogging is its social dimension which includes open discussion. Still another is the skill of managing those responses and replying in a way that promotes further discussion and sustains the discourse.
