So, this should really be a short article.

Social Media and Peer Learning: From Mediated Pedagogy to Peeragogy

Social Media and Peer Learning: From Mediated Pedagogy to Peeragogy | Communication and Technology 2012 | Scoop.it

Howard Rheingold offers a glimpse of the future of high-end online learning in which motivated self-learners collaborate via a variety of social media to create, deliver, and learn an agreed curriculum: a mutant variety of pedagogy that more closely resembles a peer-agogy. Rheingold proposes that our intention should be to teach ourselves how to teach ourselves online, and to share what we learn. He will show how the use of social media in courses he has taught about social media issues led him to co-redesign his curriculum, which led to more active participation by students in co-teaching the course.

Tablets are Good, Content is Better, and Teachers are the Best Educational ICT Investment | Communication and Technology 2012 | Scoop.it

Regardless of how amazing the iPad is, until we invest in trained teachers who know how to use technology to improve their teaching activities, until we have parents and politicians focused on learning outcomes and not iTunes apps, regardless of how many apps or how easy the technology is, I fear that iPad educations in the developing world will be wasted.
