The Digital Stranger: Education, participation, social networking and creativity
Digital strangers are people we interact with, people we are inspired by, people we understand (even a little) about their views and their position in a specific network, but know very little about. We can still learn from and with them. We can create and share. We can innovate and solve problems. We can increase awareness and affect change. We can engage, entertain and provide comfort or inspiration.

Peter Bryant's curator insight, March 20, 3:29 AM

In the increasingly frantic, impossible environment of higher education pedagogy, social media (which conceptually includes the notions of production, critiquing and consumption of 'openly' accessible media) is often seen as both the hero and the villain, offering a mechanism that may help realise the potential of e-learning but alternately might entwine the academy in a web of perceived (or real) risks and dangers (Hughes, 2009; Ralph & Ralph, 2013; Towner & Muñoz, 2011). This short paper will look at potential reasons behind this apparent disconnect, through the lens of data collected through the consultation and implementation phases of Greenwich Connect, a university wide vision for Learning Innovation at the University of Greenwich. We argue that critical to the success of any learning innovation is the ability of the staff and students to play and experiment, and that there are significant barriers to encouraging and supporting this ‘safe space’ in an open world, which is fundamental for staff finding their institution strategically and operationally credible (Whitchurch, 2008).

Both teachers and students use it pretty actively, and it can easily be used in the classroom. Do you agree? What do you think is the most ‘all-around’ social media platform for both teachers and students (in and out of class)?

This article is interesting and should be top of mind for any training organisation that wants to employ social media in the delivery of it's training programs.

 

I have been working with the use of technology in the delivery and management of education and training programs since the late 80's and am constantly amazed by my 7 year old grandson as he goes about do things like logging onto the Leggo website to access a plan so as he can build a new "something" in Leggo etc.

Stephanie Sandifer's curator insight, October 14, 2013 7:23 AM

When educators become connected, the students benefit as well.  Connected educators become exposed to a wider variety of resources, methods, and strategies for enhancing and improving the learning environment and the learning experience for all students.  Connected educators also begin to see value in creating learning experiences that are built on connectedness and this will translate into the creation of a more connected learning environment where students will begin to communicate, collaborate, and create new knowledge with peers around the world.  This global connectedness will increasingly become an essential workplace skill as it allows the individual to tap into a global connected knowledge-base (made up of their peers) and access just-in-time learning or information relevant to current work.

Trend Report: open and online education furthers quality and flexibility | Nicolai van der Woert, Ria Jacobi & Hester Jelgerhuis , Surf

Trend Report: open and online education furthers quality and flexibility | Nicolai van der Woert, Ria Jacobi & Hester Jelgerhuis , Surf | The Digital Stranger: Education, participation, social networking and creativity | Scoop.it

(From the foreword) The global development towards open education dates back more than ten years. In 2006, several Dutch universities followed suit with the publication of OpenCourseWare. Although several institutions had already embraced the concept of open education for some time, the issue seems to have truly taken hold in the Dutch higher education sector since 2013, largely due to the growing popularity of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).

The Trend Report supports this conclusion. The report accurately describes the latest developments and challenges facing the Dutch higher education sector in relation to open and online education. The articles also outline a concrete vision on future developments, such as the effects of recognising MOOC results, the impact of digitisation on postgraduate education and other forms of disruptive innovation.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, March 11, 2:51 AM

This is the third trend report in a row  that Surf, in which Dutch higher education institutions collaborate on educational innovation with ICTs,  has published. It features contributions by academics and support staff throughout higher education in the Netherlands, thus reflecting the current state of the art. Although the perspective is wider than MOOCed education, the term MOOC features 430 times, at least once on almost all of its 69 pages. It goes to show that in the Netherlands, but likely in Europe as a whole, there is an intimate link between MOOCs and open education. ‘Open’ here means making use of open licenses (such a creative commons licenses), it stands in contrast with ‘open’ in the sense of for free, without cost, which applies to the courses of the large MOOC platforms (see also the EUA report next http://sco.lt/6QxgvZ). 

 

As indicated, all the topics covered in the report refer to MOOCs. To name a few of them:  flexibility and quality, postgraduate education, apps for open education, economics of open education, platforms, recognition of credits, testing and assessment, MOOCs in formal education, learning analytics, student perspectives, privacy and other legal issues. As with the previous trend reports, a useful collection of insights. @pbsloep

Manuel León Urrutia's curator insight, March 24, 6:18 AM

A trend analysis on MOOCs from all perspectives: institutional, educational, business, and technical. Interesting to see the insights of dutch scholars on how MOOCs can offer quality education, how can become sustainable business models. Of special interest is the second article about the potential of MOOCs to change education economics, supported with figures.

"The CRAP test is a way to evaluate a source based on the following criteria: Currency, Reliability, Authority and Purpose/Point of View. Below are some questions to help you think about how to measure each of the criteria.




Currency

  • How recent is the information?
  • How recently has the website been updated?
  • Is it current enough for your topic?

Reliability -

  • What kind of information is included in the resource?
  • Is content of the resource primarily opinion? Is is balanced?
  • Does the creator provide references or sources for data or quotations?

Authority

  • Who is the creator or author?
  • What are the credentials?
  • Who is the published or sponsor?
  • Are they reputable?
  • What is the publisher’s interest (if any) in this information?
  • Are there advertisements on the website?

Purpose/Point of View -

  • Is this fact or opinion?
  • Is it biased?
  • Is the creator/author trying to sell you something?"
