A Detailed History Of Social Media - Infographic

A Detailed History Of Social Media - Infographic | Learning Digital | Scoop.it

Do you know the history of social media? Think we'll remember Facebook in 20 years? This detailed timeline is a must-see.


Social media began decades before the Facebook era. It started, more or less, with CompuServe and Arpanet back in 1969. A couple years later, the first-ever email was sent.

It has evolved over the past few decades into a powerful tool, as seen in this social media history timeline. With so much that’s happened over the past few decades, we can only guess what’s coming next for social media.

10 Lesson Plans to Develop Digital Literacies

10 Lesson Plans to Develop Digital Literacies | Learning Digital | Scoop.it

Over the last few months I have been working hard to develop a set of commercially available lesson materials. These lesson plans aren't specifically designed for English language learners, though they will be useful for students at higher levels who want stimulating skills based practice or for any teacher interested in developing a CLIL or content based approach to language learning. They were designed to enable any teacher to develop students in a way that is more closely aligned to the kinds of skills they will need to function effectively and critically in the digital world.

George Siemens: Preparing for the Digital Universitiy

George Siemens:  Preparing for the Digital Universitiy | Learning Digital | Scoop.it

In the field of educational technology 2012 was touted as the year of the Massive Open online course (mooc). While the number of

MOOC offerings have since rapidly increased, the research in this space has been lagging. To help facilitate the development of research and examine the potential of MOOCs in education the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation supported the massive open online course (MOOC) research initiative (MRI).

Athabasca University, long a pioneer in distance education, was selected as the principal investigator for the grant. The MOOC conversation was largely occurring in the popular media and was focused on the technologies and the large numbers of learners enrolling. Thesheer scale of numbers of students led to bold proclamations of education disruption and a sector on the verge of systemic change. However, from the perspective of 2015, these statements appear increasingly erroneous as MOOCs have proven to be simply an additional learning opportunity instead of a direct challenge to higher education itself. Many of the issues confronting early MOOC development and offerings could have been reduced if greater consideration was given to research literature in learning sciences and technology enabled learning. This report is the final component of the MRI grant.

Additional work in the MRI grant includes research  reports, conference, and a special issue of the International Review of Research in open and Distributed learning. The articles presented in this report provide an overview of research literature in:

Distance educationBlended learningOnline learningCredentialingMOOC researchFuture learning technology infrastructures


It is our intent that these reports will serve to introduce academics, administrators, and students to the rich history of technology in education with a particular emphasis of the importance of the human factors: social interaction, well-designed learning experiences, participatory pedagogy, supportive teaching presence, and effective techniques for using technology to support learning. The world is digitizing and higher education is not immune to this transition. The trend is well underway and seems to be accelerating as top universities create departments and senior leadership positions to explore processes of innovation within the academy.

It is our somewhat axiomatic assessment that in order to understand how we should design and develop learning for the future, we need to first take a look at what we already know. Any scientific enterprise that runs forward on only new technology, ignoring the landscape of existing knowledge, will be sub-optimal and likely fail. To build a strong future of digital learning in the academy, we must first take stock of what we know and what has been well researched.

During the process of completing this report, it became clear to us that a society or academic organization is required to facilitate the advancement and adoption of digital learning research. Important areas in need of exploration include faculty development, organizational change, innovative practices and new institutional models, effectiveness of teaching and learning activities, the student experience, increasing success for all students, and state and provincial policies, strategies, and funding models. To address this need, we invite interested academics, administrators, government and industry to contact us to discuss the formation of an organization to advocate for a collaborative and research informed approach to digital learning.

Why social media actually works for small business [infographic]

Why social media actually works for small business [infographic] | Learning Digital | Scoop.it

Social media is, at its best, an extension of the human relationship and an opportunity to look customers in the eye (digitally, that is), listen to them and interact person to person. This is the first time in history that small businesses have had the potential to build a massive fan base without a Fortune 500 budget.


The social Web is changing the way consumers discover and interact with businesses online and off and the rapid emergence of social media as a major marketing channel has left many small businesses trying to understand how to find ways to use it effectively. Refer to this infographic to help develop a strategy that suits your business.
