12 features of supporting social collaboration in the workplace | Learning in the Social Workplace | Social networking in the classroom | Scoop.it

I am often asked how to support social collaboration in the workplace. As I showed in my recent blog post, there are some big differences between learning in an e-business and learning in a social/collaborative business.

So it is not just about adding new social approaches or social media into the training “blend”, supporting social collaboration is underpinned not only by new technologies but by a new mindset.  In other words, it means ..  Blog post Jane Hart.

What Kids Say About Blogging

What Kids Say About Blogging | Social networking in the classroom | Scoop.it

One of my professional goals is to regularly visit classrooms and capture learning stories. I love talking to students and teachers who are engaging with technology in meaningful ways. One such story I captured a few months ago involved blogging in a grade 3 classroom. Jens, the teacher for this class, contacted me via email to describe the journey he’s been on with his kids:

How Educators Are Using Learnist

How Educators Are Using Learnist | Social networking in the classroom | Scoop.it

By Jennifer Roland In the weeks since Learnist launched, educators have been finding ways to put it to use.  Learnist, as many have already pointed out, works much like Pinterest — a way to catalog online resources on a topic and share them with the user’s social network. And like Pinterest, it looks like a digital bulletin board with pictures and messages, and connects with Facebook accounts. In fact, the site’s “learning boards” look quite a bit like Facebook’s timeline feature, and Facebook membership is required to use Learnist at this point.

Hi students (and visitors). If you are having trouble with your profile photo changing every time that you post a new scoop, you can fix it by following these directions that a representative from Scoop.it sent me:
Indeed there's a setting to avoid that. Tell your students that on their Curate page, click on Manage>Customizations>untick "Last Post Image" box and click on Save.

Can Twitter Replace Traditional Professional Development?

Can Twitter Replace Traditional Professional Development? | Social networking in the classroom | Scoop.it

Twitter and Facebook might soon replace traditional professional development for teachers. Instead of enduring hours-long workshops a few times a year, teachers could reach out to peers on the Internet in real time for advice on things like planning a lesson (or salvaging a lesson that’s going wrong), overcoming classroom management problems, or helping students with disabilities.

Or, at least, that’s what a group of Internet-savvy educators who convened in New York City this week are hoping.  Mindshift article.

An Analytical Take on Youth, Social Networking, and Web 2.0: A Few Moments with Amanda Lenhart | DMLcentral

An Analytical Take on Youth, Social Networking, and Web 2.0: A Few Moments with Amanda Lenhart | DMLcentral | Social networking in the classroom | Scoop.it

"For the “Teens, Kindness and Cruelty on Social Network Sites” report, you chose not to lead with the term “bullying.” Has the word become problematic?

There has been a lot of research and media coverage around the concept of bullying and cyberbullying, and we wanted this study to be able to speak to that, but through our own focus group work and through other qualitative work from experts such as danah boyd and Alice Marwick, we knew the term bullying was not really resonating with all youth. An alternate term “drama” was much more widely recognized, and when asked to describe it in these qualitative research moments, youth often described what we would call -- as adults – bullying and ascribed this term drama to that. It became clear that the term bullying wasn’t doing all the work that needed to be done to fully understand what was going on in this digital space..."
