Social Media: Why This Matters To Everyone In Education

Social Media: Why This Matters To Everyone In Education | interactive media use in the learning ecology | Scoop.it

1) Everything that’s already in the world when you’re born is just normal;

2) Anything that gets invented between then and before you turn thirty is incredibly exciting and creative and with any luck you can make a career out of it;

3) Anything that gets invented after you’re thirty is against the natural order of things and the beginning of the end of civilisation as we know it until it’s been around for about ten years when it gradually turns out to be alright really. (Adams, 1999)

"In my new role as Lecturer in Blended Learning, a part of my role is staff development. Staff development has always been a part of my roles, both in how do you do staff development in a networked world?"

Comment: rich essay on how networked learning prepares people for networked working and networked professional development. It not only advocates the use of social media for this, but also lays out a course-like structure that allows in this case teachers to acquaint themselves with these media. That said, what I miss is what I miss in all these kinds of accounts that promote social media for learning, my own included: how do people learn with them in actual fact and how effectively do they learn? There is the hunch that social media offer unprecedented opportunities for learning. But there still is little evidence to substantiate it. (Peter sloep)
