How I use social media for my professional development


This has been a common theme to many of the presentations, workshops, webinars and seminars that I have been asked to do over the last few years, but however many times I try to present on this subject I never really feel that I get the message across as clearly and persuasively as I would like.

 

So here it is. This my own attempt to outline my digital media learning experience, or at least part of it.

I’ll split this into 3 sections which I’ll call


- Information in - This is how and where I find information

 

- Information processing - This is how I process, engage with and capture information

 

- Information out - This is how I share what I’ve learned or discovered

SMILE - Social Media in Learning and Education Handbook

SMILE - Social Media in Learning and Education Handbook | Professional development for Business English teachers | Scoop.it

More than 100 teachers from across Europe participated in the SMILE (Social Media in Learning and Education) action and undertook a pedagogical journey to explore jointly the challenges and opportunities involved when using social media in learning and education.
 
The outcomes of the project, funded by a Digital Citizenship Research Grant from Facebook, are now published in a digital handbook. You can find pedagogical materials and resources from the learning laboratory with many valuable reflections and suggestions on some critical aspects of the use of social media as regards school policies, pedagogical principles, professional development, responsible use and challenges to adoption.

12. Any innovation in education deserves to be heard even if it’s just to start the conversation. This example shows the use of facebook being used in education. Interesting to see the comment of the teacher regarding the enthusiasm of the students.

You can download the digital handbook from a link here. There is also a newsletter that might be worth signing up to.
