How to Use Social Media as a Learning Tool in the Classroom

How to Use Social Media as a Learning Tool in the Classroom | Social media for HE | Scoop.it

"Social media is an ingrained part of today’s society. Our students are constantly on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and likely many sites we’re not hip enough to know about, and by reading this blog, you’re interacting with social media at this very moment. If you want to bring the “real world” into the classroom, consider integrating social media into your lessons."

Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media

Teaching Crowds: Learning and Social Media | Social media for HE | Scoop.it
In Teaching Crowds, Dron and Anderson introduce a new model for understanding and exploiting the pedagogical potential of Web-based technologies, one that rests on connections — on networks and collectives — rather than on separations. Recognizing that online learning both demands and affords new models of teaching and learning, the authors show how learners can engage with social media platforms to create an unbounded field of emergent connections. These connections empower learners, allowing them to draw from one another’s expertise to formulate and fulfill their own educational goals. In an increasingly networked world, developing such skills will, they argue, better prepare students to become self-directed, lifelong learners.

In my lifetime, I can't imagine what it's like not to work with a team or a committee or workgroup. We are taught to accept the team model to help us gain new perspectives which can help with innovation.
