Students lacking 'real life' experience, warns Willetts - Telegraph

Students lacking 'real life' experience, warns Willetts - Telegraph | Education | Scoop.it
Many students are ill-prepared for the world of work because degrees such as science and engineering are being “delivered on paper” without real life experience, the Universities Minister has warned.
Rachel Roberts-Jones's insight:

Lecture hall theories need to be viewed from working perspective. Paper based education will only get a graduate so far, real world application is necessary for all subject areas!

For all the academics that take social media seriously, not only as a way to communicate, but always as a medium worthy of study, this citation guide is recognition that others in academe at started to realize that the can't continue ignoring it.

Excerpt from connection.sagepub.com :

"As it seems that social media will only play a bigger role in future research of all disciplines, I took to doing my own research on how Facebook posts, tweets, YouTube videos, etc. should be cited in academic publications. I came across the following table from TeachBytes that I thought would be helpful to share with our SAGE Connection readers as well (thank you, Aditi!):

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 6, 2013 11:01 AM

The last two conferences that I have attended have been greatly enriched by the backchannel (the conversation about the conference being held on Twitter).  The backchannel removes the top-down method of disseminating information and ideas as you tailor for stream to find information that interests you (I have no use for Taylor Swift gossip or oncology research at the moment, but if I did, I could find those conversations on Twitter quite easily).  Not surprisingly, my stream is focused on geography education, educational technologies and geospatial tools.  It isn't "one more thing" to complicate your life--it's a great tool to streamline the conversations that you always wish you could have with the people you might not otherwise be able to access.  And that makes it worth trying.
