Social Media: The Swiss Army Knife of Higher Education

Social Media: The Swiss Army Knife of Higher Education | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it
Over the past two to three years, social media has become a primary tool and strategy for recruitment, for marketing, for development, for public relations, for alumni relations and for moving our unique school toward a "thought leadership" position. I do not have a development officer, a grant writer, a PR or a marketing person. Or perhaps I could say, I am all of those guys, and I farm a lot of the work out to Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest, Scoop.It, Hootsuite, Google Plus, You Tube and the online newswires.

EU Commission presents new Rethinking Education strategy | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it
Rethinking Education in brief:
There needs to be a much stronger focus on developing transversal skills and basic skills at all levels. This applies especially to entrepreneurial and IT skills.
Member States need to improve the recognition of qualifications and skills, including those gained outside of the formal education and training system.
Technology, in particular the internet, must be fully exploited. Schools, universities and vocational and training institutions must increase access to education via open educational resources.
These reforms must be supported by well-trained, motivated and entrepreneurial teachers

It's Time to Re-Think the (U.S.) Education System

It's Time to Re-Think the (U.S.) Education System | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it
Our current approach to education was designed for a different age. It was modeled both on the interests of industrialization and in the image of it: specialization into separate subjects, standardized curricula, conformity, batch processing — by age group. The system was designed to leverage a "lock step" approach over set periods of time and using broadcast delivery methods to prepare students effectively for known jobs.

The model worked well for 100 years because it matched between the needs of employers. But, as we all know, most of the jobs of tomorrow will not be industrial jobs. Even those in the manufacturing sector will require a knowledge-based set of skills and behaviors. The gap between the output of our educational system and the job demands of the current century is enormous — and growing wider. And the kids intuitively recognize the gap. They're asking for a change.

Innovative Technology Doesn't Mean Instructionally Innovative

Innovative Technology Doesn't Mean Instructionally Innovative | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it
Have you seen the latest mini tablet computer? It can shoot video, take photos, play music, send and receive email, and browse the web. Therefore, we must immediately buy one for every student and figure out how to use it in the classroom later.

Isn't this too often the paradigm in education? We jump on to what's trendy without stopping to consider how the tool can effectively be used in the classroom to promote high-quality learning.

I often suggest to educators that before they adopt a new technology tool, they should determine what they want students to learn. I often guide the discussion by referencing 21st century skills including:

• information literacy
• collaboration
• communication
• innovation/creativity
• problem solving
• responsible citizenship
