Session Title:
What is the eductaional value of class bogs, wikis etc

Session Summary:

"Poor blog = comments in lesson.

Good blog = comments that night.

Great blog = children continuing the discussion weeks later."

Although expecting a quieter #ukedchat discussion than usual, owing to the numbers of ‘regulars’ attending BETT, I was pleasantly surprised. It appears there’s a whole host of enthusiastic teachers blogging out there who were more than happy to share what their experiences have taught them.

Listen, understand, act: social media for engagement | Jisc Inform / Issue 39, Spring 2014 | Library curating | Scoop.it

Not long ago, social media was a phenomenon viewed by many in education with some suspicion: useful, perhaps, for marketing departments to issue press releases, but surely not a serious tool for academic or professional purposes? After all, isn’t Twitter just celebrity chit-chat? What could Facebook possibly have to do with a quality learning experience? Where does LinkedIn fit into the picture? asks Lis Parcell, senior e-learning advisor with Jisc RSC Wales.

The Great Peer Learning Pyramid Scheme | DMLcentral | Library curating | Scoop.it
I often get asked questions like these: Does peer learning really work? Don’t we need experts to learn from? Can the (proverbially) blind really lead the blind? Those are good questions and I will get back to them in a second.

Addressed the important question:  "Could peer learning be the (only) answer to scale meaningful learning and education for a growing global population?"
