Social Media Practices to Expect in 2013

Social Media Practices to Expect in 2013 | Leveraging Information | Scoop.it

Social media has rapidly become an important part of many peoples’ lives, not just as a way to keep up with friends and family, but also for professional networks, exploring fields of research, shopping, sharing content and fostering online communities.


It has also become a crucial aspect of a businesses’ online presence- now a firm can connect with consumers and tailor their online relationships with customers, other brands, and with employees.
Predicting quite what is going to happen in this ever changing digital landscape isn’t easy, but it’s certainly worth noting some of the rising trends and having a look ahead to 2013.


Learn more about these trends, including social marketing, content development, branding, video + media applications, social tv, and the growing influence of mobile devices in social media...

Tim Scholze's insight:

Can we really get more social? Predictions are predictions, but we should always have an eye on the future. Social media is definitely necessary but where do you draw the line or do you?

I love that point Martin! I think people call it social because of the personal element to it as opposed to advertising and things like that, especially because it's so interactive in nature. Do you have a suggestion as to what to change the name to?
ThePinkSalmon's comment, December 13, 2012 11:44 PM
Very good indeed!
donhornsby's curator insight, December 14, 2012 6:23 AM

(From the article): "The coming year will see a massive increase in companies using social media services to market their goods and services, recognising the potential for sharing content and information and enhancing engagement with target audiences."

Colleges Are Warming Up to Online Learning (Teachers Are Not) | Leveraging Information | Scoop.it
Online learning may have had a breakout year in 2012, but the professoriate is still skeptical of its value.
Tim Scholze's insight:

I find this hard to believe. I would have thought that teachers would warm up to online learning. The pedagogy is the same, the platform is what's different

If badges will open doors to opportunity and employment I'm all for it.  People need a way to validate their experience and learning, and a solid badge economy promises to do just that. 


This is a growing trend worth watching. 


News:  My sources tell me that Learning Times will be announcing a new badge economy at Educause in February.  Keep a sharp eye out!

Abstract

The new European university context requires a methodological and evaluative shift towards active didactic, socio-constructive and investigative perspectives that are student-centred. This study describes the learning setting, the results and the conclusions of an innovative practical exercise carried out by first-year students on two different degree courses at an Andalusian university, using e-portfolios set up for group work and implemented through an edublog. The study's main aim is to establish the most significant achievements, problems and evidence that emerge from this didactic group project. The project includes the design and implementation of a multimedia educational material (MEM), and involves the students in didactic planning and self-assessment processes. The conclusions show that the e-portfolio is a didactic method that fully integrates teaching, learning and assessment into a continuum by allowing students to work together didactically on such aspects. This methodological alternative also greatly helps the lecturer in his/her understanding of the students' learning processes, the working methods of his/her classes, the problems associated with team working, the information sources that students use, and the tutoring and learning-assessment processes. Lastly, the e-portfolio enables the future social educators' levels of didactic comprehension and professional-competency acquisition to be gauged.
