Using Social Media In The Classroom For Real-World Learning

Using Social Media In The Classroom For Real-World Learning | Social Media and the Future of Education | Scoop.it
There is already evidence that teachers are using social media as part of teaching strategies, with the aim of encouraging students to view social networks as less of a pleasurable distraction, and more as something that can be used in projects and for personal expression in a medium they prefer.

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.

Undoubtedly Twitter is a powerful communication tool. However, using Twitter in the classroom presents challenges. Simply embedding a tweet stream on blogs or webpages is not enough because all tweets from our account are included, not only the ones relevant to students. Embedded tweet streams are also not particularly attractive or informative, especially for the Twitter novices. Though not targeted specifically at academia, RebelMouse presents an interesting solution to this problem, by intelligent curation of social media wrapped in a great design.
