Curating yourself in social learning spaces: adding value

Curating yourself in social learning spaces: adding value | Professional Learning Scoops for Educators | Scoop.it
I was having a long conversation yesterday afternoon with someone who is just returning to work after five years away, raising children. She was pondering on how to 'get' Twitter, how to do somethi...

 

Our reputation, our value within social learning spaces, is based upon our ability to do more than just churn information. We need to be able to find things out, but we need to be able to do things with that information, and we need to be able to change our stance and style according to the situation.

 

===> One size no longer fits all: we are in a constant state of flux and only the agile will thrive. <===

It’s about the storytelling, not just the facts

Allan Shaw's curator insight, March 19, 2013 1:14 AM

The human side of technology is critical to its effective use in an educational context, perhaps many other contexts as well. If the technology is not used with some discernment and if it cannot amplify considered views then it is wasteful of the effort of involvement.

Aleshia Clarke's curator insight, June 13, 2013 10:22 AM

My sister refuses to use social media, but she allows my niece to use it unsupervised. Not only is that dangerous, but it is also a lost opportunity to interact within her daughter's social life. This is particularly important to a single mom who works overtime to make ends meet. It doesn't require a huge time commitment; just having a "presence" on Facebook would be sufficient. I feel that my niece is not getting "enough" of her mother. Perhaps she would be less prone to create online drama if my sister was there listening in and guiding her.

Thanks @careypeter as always for another good Pinterest Pinboard on the physical space involved in eLearning. 

 

I particularly like the idea of Workplaces (small group) We Places (All together) and Me Places (individual) in the physical learning space. If we can have somewhere for all three, that will really help our spaces to be used effectively.

Learning Environment: 20 Things Educators Need to Know about Learning Spaces | Professional Learning Scoops for Educators | Scoop.it

"The 21stcentury is challenging old notions of learning spaces.

The idea that students must be seated at desks working in rows is quickly becoming archaic. Technology and collaborative work environments are changing the design of learning spaces. Experts hope that the emerging paradigm will translate into improved learning spaces and influence future architectural design."
