Attention, and Other 21st-Century Social Media Literacies (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE

This article by Howard Rheingold gave me a useful pedagogical framework for using social media in the classroom; we discussed our use of social media within the context of social media literacy. I adapted Rheingold's social media literacies to make them align more with the goals of a library research course.

Social Media Literacy--Slideshare Presentation

This is the presentation I use in my library research class to introduce social media literacy as our pedagogical framework. I adapted these literacies from Howard Rheingold's work to make them more applicable to library research. I encourage you to use the link "Attention and Other 21st Century Social Media Literacies" on this scoop.it to explore his work further!

Q. and A. | How Facebook Use Correlates With Student Outcomes

Q. and A. | How Facebook Use Correlates With Student Outcomes | Teaching with Social Media (Virtual Poster Session) | Scoop.it

This study piggybacks off UNH's study--we can't just stop our examination at who is and isn't using Facebook, we need to also think about HOW are students use Facebook. My reading of Junco's study (which, along with other studies, is linked here and in some ways challenges UNH's findings) suggests that active engagement with facebook can counteract some negative effects that the social networking site might have on student engagement.

Social Networking Usage and Grades Among College Students

This study by the University of New Hampshire shows that there is not a correlation between engaging in social networking and receiving bad grades. This is good news for UNH because it notes that 96% of its students use Facebook!

USG Teaching & Learning Conference | Facebook

USG Teaching & Learning Conference | Facebook | Teaching with Social Media (Virtual Poster Session) | Scoop.it

I set up this facebook page to echo the one I use in my class. I've posted some discussion questions about using social media meaningfully in the classroom--feel free to join the conversation or pose your own questions. Are you doing something different or fun with social media in your class? Discuss it!

 

Facebook is useful in the conference context for the same reason it can be useful in the classroom--it is convenient, interactive, familiar, and has a life outside of the central event. Let's use this space to keep our conversations going!

Self-Described 'EduPunk' Says Colleges Should Abandon Course-Management Systems - Technology - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Self-Described 'EduPunk' Says Colleges Should Abandon Course-Management Systems - Technology - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Teaching with Social Media (Virtual Poster Session) | Scoop.it

How can you use social media to liberate students from their learning management systems? Using blogs, wikis, and social networking sites allows for your conversation to live on past the semester, and outside of the classroom.I use facebook in my class as a space for discussions--facebook is more intuitive, convenient and familiar, and as such (ideally) students should feel more comfortable using it. I also allow students to upload their multimedia projects to Facebook so the whole class can see (and give constructive feedback on) their assignments.

Do Media Literacy, Digital Literacy, and Social Media Literacy Intersect?

Do Media Literacy, Digital Literacy, and Social Media Literacy Intersect? | Teaching with Social Media (Virtual Poster Session) | Scoop.it

This is not a scholarly website, but in it, Karen Tillman offers what might be my favorite definition of Social Media Literacy: "...social media literacy is having the proficiency to communicate appropriately, responsibly, and to evaluate conversations critically within the realm of socially-based technologies."

Findings | Pew Internet & American Life Project: College Students and Technology | Teaching with Social Media (Virtual Poster Session) | Scoop.it

We all have an anecodotal understanding of the ubiquity of social networking, but if there was any doubt, this Pew Internet study from 2011 cites that at the time of the research (2010), 86% of undergrads and 82% of graduate students used social networking. Our students are invested and engaged in these platforms, so we should be too.
