The Social Sickness - INFOGRAPHIC

The Social Sickness - INFOGRAPHIC | Learning at its best ! | Scoop.it

The Internet has become the building block of information creation and storage in the modern age. It’s a place where we can create websites, publications, blogs, and micro-blogs; then transfer that knowledge to people across the globe.

Social media has become one of the greatest harnessers of this technology and provides us with a multitude of platforms in which to engage and share content. With all of this social media bliss distracting us, sickness has also come knocking.
We have surrendered to the temptation to check our phones every two minutes to see how many likes our Instagram photos have, how many retweets our Twitter account got, and who commented on our Facebook posts...
The characters portrayed in this infographic bring us face-to-face with these tendencies, and shed insight into the types of personalties affected. Whether you’re an unabashed alert-lover, verb creator, or someone who would rather use the “like” button than ever fully engage with your friends ever again — there’s a 'social media sickness' for you.

How Some Teachers Are Mixing Online Math with Classroom Instruction

How Some Teachers Are Mixing Online Math with Classroom Instruction | Learning at its best ! | Scoop.it

"As schools start experimenting with educational software — or blended learning — teachers are trying to find ways of using tech to enhance learning in different subjects. When it comes to math, specifically, the tactics vary widely — from using software for remediation, to practicing drills and exercises to move students ahead at their own pace, to completely re-conceptualizing the traditional classroom model. The one underlying common thread? Using online math has begun to change teachers’ perspectives."

What Schools are Really Blocking When They Block Social Media

What Schools are Really Blocking When They Block Social Media | Learning at its best ! | Scoop.it

The real issue, of course, is not social media but learning. Specifically, the fact that our schools are disconnected from young learners and how their learning practices are evolving. The decision to block social media is inconsistent with how students use social media as a powerful node in their learning network. Can social media be a distraction in the classroom? Absolutely. Will some students access questionable content if given the opportunity? Yes. But many students use social media to enhance their learning, expand the reach of the classroom, find the things that they ‘need to know,’ and fashion their own personal learning networks.

Natali L's curator insight, May 31, 2015 3:20 AM

By blocking social media schools are also blocking the opportunity:

1)    to teach students about the inventive and powerful ways that communities around the world are using social media

2) for students and teachers to experience the educational potential of social media together

3)    for students to distribute their work with the larger world

4)    for students to reimagine their creative and civic identities in the age of networked media

Takistades sotsiaalmeedia kasutamist koolis, blokeeritakse võimalus:

1. õpetada erinevaid teid, mida kasutatakse   maailma  kogukondades sotsiaalmeedia abil

2. õpilastel ja õpetajatel koos kogeda sotsiaalmeedia hariduslikku potentsiaali

3. esitada õpilastel oma töid laiemale kuulajaskonnale

4. õpilastele ümber mõtestada nende loomingulist ja kodanikuidentiteeti digiajastul.

The disruption of education: How technology is helping students teach themselves

The disruption of education: How technology is helping students teach themselves | Learning at its best ! | Scoop.it

Whether it’s moribund educational institutions or governments or just bureaucratic red tape, what examples like these show is that the disruption of education continues whether such entities like it or not. Students will find a way to learn if they are given the opportunity, and technology and the social web are providing some powerful ways of doing that.

Interesting look at tech and edu. Kids will find the information. All we need to do is ask the right questions for them to seek the answers on their own and make their own deductions about where to look and what sources to trust for gathering information.
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, March 3, 2015 7:51 PM

Jacques Ranciere in The Ignorant School Master wrote about how this happened in the 19th Century without digital technologies. If students are motivated and have the resources they are able to learn. They do not necessarily teach themselves, but they can learn.
