How Twitter will revolutionise academic research and teaching

How Twitter will revolutionise academic research and teaching | Social Media in HE & language leaning | Scoop.it

Over the last few months I have been looking for papers, articles, tweets anything that could enhance my knowledge on the use of social media in education and particularly in the field of language learning. Under a pile of print articles and journals I found a post by Ernesto Priego published in the Guardian Higher Education Network dating back to September 2011. It has been a year now that has been published and the first thought that comes to my mind is that it might not be that 'revolutionising' as it claims to be anymore.

Reading it again I am realising I am wrong. It is more 'up to date' than ever.

SMILE - Social Media in Learning and Education Handbook | Social Media in HE & language leaning | Scoop.it

More than 100 teachers from across Europe participated in the SMILE (Social Media in Learning and Education) action and undertook a pedagogical journey to explore jointly the challenges and opportunities involved when using social media in learning and education.
 
The outcomes of the project, funded by a Digital Citizenship Research Grant from Facebook, are now published in a digital handbook. You can find pedagogical materials and resources from the learning laboratory with many valuable reflections and suggestions on some critical aspects of the use of social media as regards school policies, pedagogical principles, professional development, responsible use and challenges to adoption.

Good to know someoe is looking at the pedagogy.

Andrew McRobert's curator insight, August 19, 2014 8:48 AM

12. Any innovation in education deserves to be heard even if it’s just to start the conversation. This example shows the use of facebook being used in education. Interesting to see the comment of the teacher regarding the enthusiasm of the students.

Jessica Alanis's curator insight, April 1, 2016 11:56 PM

You can download the digital handbook from a link here. There is also a newsletter that might be worth signing up to.
