Universities are failing at teaching social media

Universities are failing at teaching social media | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

FORTUNE — “Overall, the higher education system is failing to prepare students with the needed digital and social skill set in any meaningful way,” says Dr. William Ward of Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. “Higher education, like business, needs a culture shift.” For Ward, who goes by the handle @DR4WARD on Twitter and has nearly 10,000 followers, the imperative for more courses is clear. “Students with social media certification are getting better jobs and internships,” he says. “Those who harness social communications are in high demand and have an advantage.”

There’s a whole new classroom model and it’s a sight to behold. The newest school system in Sweden look more like the hallways of Google or Pixar and less like a brick-and-mortar school you’d typically see.
There are collaboration zones, houses-within-houses, and a slew of other features that are designed to foster “curiosity and creativity.” That’s according to Vittra, which runs 30 schools in Sweden. Their most recent school, Telefonplan School (see photos below) in Stockholm, could very well be the school of the future.

Why School? TED ebook author rethinks education when information is everywhere.

Why School? TED ebook author rethinks education when information is everywhere. | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

Schools were built upon the fundamental that teachers and knowledge and information were scarce. That is no longer the reality. Now, as so many more of us gain faster and broader access to the Web, all of those things are suddenly abundant. That means that the traditional role of school, to deliver an education, is quickly becoming less and less relevant. If we continue to see schools as the place where our children go to master a narrow list of content, knowledge and skills that were originally defined almost 150 years ago, we risk putting those kids out into the world with little idea of how to take advantage of the explosion of learning opportunities that now exist.
