  • Social networks are a black swan. They are disruptive technologies because we didn't see them coming. They have irredeemably changed the student experience by changing the way students communicate. If they have not changed the way you communicate with students, then you have missed something.
  • Which is not to suggest you "friend" your students on FB. So how then?
  • A population is not a person.
  • Looking deeper with Gephi.
  • Google+ - the way forward.
  • Google+ is sticky.
  • Google+ is a work in progress.

  • 6.
  • 7. Facefeed?
  • 8. Friendfeed
  • 9. Engagement?
    10 weeks, 134 students analyzed:
    5,376 entries
    8,151 comments
    5,232 "likes”
    199,853 words - average of 1,491 each, not including private messages
    ~15% of students continued to use the service more than one month after the end of assessment - considerable increase from other tools (<1%)

  • 11. Females score higher marks than males (Wilcoxon rank sum test, p < 0.001). Although females make more contributions than males, males are strategically focused on assessment criteria.
  • 12. gephi.org
  • 13. "Authority"
    “Communities"
    • Active group (red)
    • 14. Internalized group (purple)
    • 15. Inactive group (blue)
  • Google Social?
    Google can’t do social?
  • 16. Google+ is different
    Familiarity
    Integration
  • 17. A work in progress
    Search not working (apart from people)
    No groups like Friendfeed Groups/Facebook pages - you can't join someone else's circle
    No tagging (yet)
  • 18. Communications tools don’t get socially interesting until they get technologically boring... It's when a technology becomes normal, then ubiquitous, and finally so pervasive as to be invisible, that the really profound changes happen.
    Clay Shirky, 2008.
