Millennials Rely On Social Media For News

Millennials Rely On Social Media For News | Social Media and the Future of Education | Scoop.it
Today's younger generation has a reputation of being glued to the cellphones and tablets. It's where they chat with their friends, find out the latest hot spots in town and, believe it or not, keep up with the world. In their own way, of course.

Probably not news to most of us (no pun intended), since it seems to me that millennials thrive on immediacy of news, and attribute well served by social media. The desire (or even recognition) for accuracy, or journalistic insight, appears to be less important. But maybe my perspective is influenced by my 17-year career at Reuters, where accuracy always took precedent over timeliness.

Curious how they got the ethics approval for that, especially the second part of the study; considering the subject of the study, they probably have the least problem compared to the board of ethics.

 

It’s not surprising I supposed, but interesting to see the deeper findings and the difference on age group, gender, cultural background probably. In the place where culture collides, the internet or social network we call it now, do they collide and disappear? Blending one with the other? or different people take things differently. 

Andreas Kuswara's comment, June 11, 2013 9:16 PM
would be interesting to see what they (the supposed to be narcissists) view about privacy? since narcissism is .. in a way contradictive with privacy. isn't it? or not really?
Maggie Giuffrida's curator insight, October 1, 2013 6:44 PM

College students use Twitter & adults use Facebook - they both are searching for approval from their "circle." Maybe it is not just Gen Y'ers but instead just people TODAY. Or to think, college students use Twitter to microphone their lives to the masses & adults use Facebook to seek approval from their already determined "circle of friends." Is there a difference? Absolutely. Approval from legitimate & physical friends has been at the core of maturity for many generations. Today, approval comes from paid advertising accounts sharing hash tags.

Using Social Media In The Classroom For Real-World Learning

The use of social media for learning is essential, particularly in secondary (high schools). Too many teens are engaged with social media, for fast periods of time, with no return on their investment. Schools and their pupil's would benefit from the social media angle.

With each passing day political parties and citizens, business leaders and employees, and brands and consumers, have an increasing array of media outlets through which to share and access personal information. As such, it’s more important than ever to own and manage your reputation before another person or institution defines it for you.

Mary Glynn's curator insight, October 13, 2013 11:30 AM

This tweet provides interesting ways to bring the 21st century into the classroom, and presents some good ideas on how to get the children more engaged and involved in class.

I have to say that I never really saw how Twitter could be useful in schools. I thought that it was just a way for people to express their immediate feelings and thoughts, and to see what celebrities are doing. I never thought that Twitter could be applied in the classroom in so many different ways! Using Twitter as a bulletin board is a great way to reach children. I didn't even realize that the University of Maryland and many universities utilize Twitter for this purpose. For example, when there severe weather and there is a school delay or closing, President Wallace Loh tweets to the UMD community letting them know whether or not classes are cancelled. Twitter can also be used to send out mini quizzes to students which they can answer for bonus points. Honestly, I never thought that students and teachers could communicate through Twitter in all of these ways! Truly brilliant! The tweet also describes how Twitter hash-tags can be used for organizing information in the classroom. By creating a classroom hash-tag, students can see other classmates' thoughts on class and teachers can look for questions students have. I think using the hash tag can be very beneficial because it's a space where everything can be piled together connected by a single hash-tag. However, it can be a disorganized pile if there is not structure and directions on what the hash-tag should be used for. I think if students are given a guideline on what the teacher is looking for in on the hash-tag (questions, thoughts on today's readings), then the classroom will profit from having a classroom hash-tag. There are so many more amazing ways Twitter can be used in school! This tweet really opened my eyes to the academic ways of using Twitter. I have become more accepting to having forms of social media in the classroom after reading this tweet. I think it is all about the way you use technology in the classroom. If you use it properly, it can change the way we teach and truly bring education into the 21st century.
