Collective Consumption: Social Media And Active Learning

Collective Consumption: Social Media And Active Learning | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

"It comes as no surprise that the Internet grows exponentially by the minute, and in some cases by the second. It’s too late to turn back the clock, and it’s no wonder that our learners view school regulations of social media archaic and restrictive. We see the weekly chats with frustrated teachers who try to get colleagues to see the benefits of Twitter; yet this is not even the most popular media with our tweens, let alone young people under thirty."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 11, 2014 9:45 PM

Students use social media. Do they know how much social media is used (and do teachers know this information)? This post shares two great websites that provide data on how social media is being used today. Both are interactive, but in very different ways.

The Internet in Real Time provides an up to the second look at 23 social media tools, letting you see how quickly data is generated and you can also see "the real-time accumulation of wealth."

The second resource is an infographic Social Media 2014which looks at ten social media websites and provides "facts, figures, numbers and statistics from 2014." A few are below:

* 23% of teens consider Instagram their favorite social network.

* 100 hours of video is uploaded on YouTube every minute.

Given this data many of us may be questioning policies at our schools. Is it time for public schools to look at how social media is being used by their students when they are outside the walls of the school and understand that social media provides a platform that we could use to deliver lessons?

This post explores this issue and the final sentence reads "The collective consumption of knowledge has changed because of technology, and learners need to be able to use it, search it, and share it." What are your thoughts on this?
