While there are many reasons I like to write about my teaching and work, my 3 best reasons are explored below. When I’m stuck without a topic or focus, rather than just writing for writing’s sake, here are the reasons I try to come back to.

Why implementation of Social learning is important for the current education system? | Pedagogy and technology of online learning | Scoop.it

"Education frequently takes place under the guidance of educators, but the trend of learners educating themselves is on a continuous upward movement. The reasons may include freedom to choose, no fear of questions being asked, learning at one's own pace and place, absorbing at one's own capacity and much more. The self-learning trend has been empowered by cutting edge educational technology innovation."

One thing this article seems to be saying is that the growth of technology in education makes more possible the old goal of emotional growth along with mental growth, especially in the learner taking more responsibility for their education. -Lon

Ashleigh Latter's curator insight, May 19, 8:33 AM
I have mixed opinions... On one hand I think Social Learning is positive, engaging, and informative while being a good platform for the next generation to access and absorb information, however I feel for a formative educational sense there are a lot of unknowns we can open the door to. For example, the article mentions that learners can go at their own pace - however most schools and institutes run by specific timelines and to allow slower learners to just be even slower may mean they don't even expose themselves to some of the content that may appear on an assessment piece and they end up far behind the rest of their cohort. If the majority of social media had positive views and encouragement for education with limited distractions, then it would be highly likely that we could see a generation of avid, elf-motivated learners - but does social media really encourage education and learning as much as we would like it to?
Helen Teague's curator insight, May 22, 10:49 AM
Interesting Points:
1.) "in 1971, an influential Austrian philosopher named Ivan Illich published a hugely influential book called, ' Deschooling Society ', in which he envisioned "learning webs" as a model for people to network the learning they needed."
2.) And a workable definition of asynchronous learning, "Asynchronous learning uses technologies such as email, blogs, wikis, and discussion boards, as well as web-supported textbooks, audio-video courses, and social networking using web 2.0 (Web 2.0 describes websites that emphasize user-generated content, usability, and interoperability)."
3.) new media became an extension of the traditional media on the cyberspace, allowing to the public access information in a wide range of digital devices. In other words, it is a cultural virtualization of human reality as a result of the migration from physical to virtual space (mediated by the ICTs), ruled by codes, signs, and particular social relationships, inside and outside the classroom.
4.) "New technologies also help to “connect” people from different cultures outside the virtual space, which was unthinkable fifty years ago."
5.) "The National School Boards Association found that 96% of students with online access have used social networking technologies, and more than 50% talk online about schoolwork."

A Step by Step Guide to Help Teachers Create Facebook Pages for Their Classes ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Pedagogy and technology of online learning | Scoop.it
Creating a digital presence for your class does not have to be restricted to only standard  platforms such as websites, blogs and wikis;  social media platforms do offer some handy alternatives especially when it comes to teaching adult students. For instance, you can easily create a Google Plus community for your class and invite your students to join in. There is also Google’s new web tool Spaces that you can use with your students to share, discuss and comment on different topics (a guide on how to use Spaces is on the making and we will share it with you as soon as it is ready). However, in today’s post we are  introducing you to Facebook Pages. This is a feature in Facebook that allows you to create a virtual space for any sort of purpose you want.

Is Wikipedia Reliable? Here Are Some Tips on How to Find Out

Is Wikipedia Reliable? Here Are Some Tips on How to Find Out | Pedagogy and technology of online learning | Scoop.it
A German study that looked at the accuracy of Wikipedia articles about drugs against information in textbooks (which, of course, could also contain errors), found that it was 99.7%±0.2% accurate, making it extremely accurate when the standard of comparison is a textbook. Interestingly, however, they found that many of the articles were only about 83% complete compared to those same textbooks. So while Wikipedia articles contained accurate information, they were also missing some facts.

Other studies have been conducted in different fields. Here’s one for history articles that found Wikipedia’s accuracy rate was 80 percent compared with 95?96 percent for other sources. Another study comparing credibility judgments from experts and non-experts found that experts deemed the articles quite credible, even though they found factual errors in 10% of articles.
