  19. 19. FACEBOOK & CASESTUDY 1 - METHODOLOGY CLASSROOM Group 1 Created parallel to classroom activity where I was physically involved in the class as a student. Group 2 Created parallel to classroom activity of junior students where I was physically NOT involved in the class as a student however know the content and aware of recent events. Group 3 Created to check the possibility of delivering a content as mode of distance learning and identifying the difficulties . Group 4 Created to make notes in routine project activity Page 1 Created to add relevant references for research Purposefully Not involved the FB in a class and observed the difficulties.DEC 2011: Academic Project Presentation: Masters in Media and Creative Enterprise: Birmingham School of Media C Powered by - Mrunal Bhongale Page 19 of 30
  20. 20. FACEBOOK & CASESTUDY 2 - OBSERVATIONS 1 CLASSROOM Using FB as Student: • Effective Communication • Easy sharing and access to references • Team Building Exercise • 24/7 connection with class and faculty • Flexible learning hours • Motivation to perform consistently • Exposure to other cultures (Important for international Students) • Utilizing unproductive hrs of travel etc. • Creating notes with active links • Flexible privacy setting • Easy access to past posts • Effective communication with faculty • Reduces time on personal tutorials • Hard to avoid DISTRACTIONS. However, Mature students can handle it.DEC 2011: Academic Project Presentation: Masters in Media and Creative Enterprise: Birmingham School of Media C Powered by - Mrunal Bhongale Page 20 of 30
  21. 21. FACEBOOK & CASESTUDY 3 - OBSERVATIONS 2 CLASSROOM Using FB as Student with Knowledge of Usability Standard: Facebook almost has all the features of LMS (Learning Management System). A FB group is effective tool for group communication and few enhancements in usability features will make it more effective. For education purpose we must have a added facility of creating a “Class” may be, which will have few features from Pages and Few features from Group . This will help Facebook to grow as effective medium in education. I have not included detailed usability features as this is not my purpose here but can effectively communicate in case of need. This activity should be conducted by some one who is enthusiastic student in class and can consult professor to make it happening place.DEC 2011: Academic Project Presentation: Masters in Media and Creative Enterprise: Birmingham School of Media C Powered by - Mrunal Bhongale Page 21 of 30
  22. 22. FACEBOOK & CASESTUDY 4 - OBSERVATIONS 3 CLASSROOM My Definition of Literacy in 21st Century: Learning multimedia basics will be basic requirement for students or may be an urgent requirement in developed countries. Every student should learn how to edit images, create graphics, prepare presentations, develop animations, edit videos and in all should learn to Use social media effectively.DEC 2011: Academic Project Presentation: Masters in Media and Creative Enterprise: Birmingham School of Media C Powered by - Mrunal Bhongale Page 22 of 30
  23. 23. FACEBOOK & CASESTUDY 5 - OBSERVATIONS 4 CLASSROOM Some Observations for faculty: Students are digital Natives, used to modern technologies and new means of communication and as such they would adapt quickly to the use of Facebook as a working tool. Though students do not see Facebook as an useful work tool yet (54% of the respondents), it should not be overlooked, as they lack perspective Given the right incentive and evolution of the platform, they could adapt quickly and turn Facebook into a productive tool: • Nurturing Connections that could be useful to their company • Organizing themselves and creating work groups dedicated to a specific projectDEC 2011: Academic Project Presentation: Masters in Media and Creative Enterprise: Birmingham School of Media C Powered by - Mrunal Bhongale Page 23 of 30
  24. 24. FACEBOOK & CASESTUDY 6 - OBSERVATIONS 5 CLASSROOM Some Observations for faculty: Proposed Age Group: This is easy to conduct with Mature students as they are aware about the norms in communication in social media and are aware of privacy statements, which makes life easy. Privacy Settings: No need to be friends with every student as people can be a part of a group with out being in friendliest of each other. May be you can start this as open group activity and ask people to join in and once all are on board, you can change it to a secrete group. Activity can be leaded by one or two of the promising student in the class under the guidance of professor. Or else a Create a teacher profile separate from your personal profile. Follow Students Activities: It will help them to understand/track the students activities as routine. Communication: Flexible and informal communication will help them to handle the class more effectively. Time Effective: It will help them to reduce on personal tutorial activity with each student as most of the students have similar pattern of enquiries and can be solved in one go.DEC 2011: Academic Project Presentation: Masters in Media and Creative Enterprise: Birmingham School of Media C Powered by - Mrunal Bhongale Page 24 of 30
  25. 25. FACEBOOK & CASESTUDY 7 - STEPS TO PROCEED CLASSROOM Create a group of FB Post parallel activities to class readings Provoke people to be active on it. Try to develop the environment of learn with fun Understand the psychology of everyone. Develop the team building techniques of communication Encourage “expert” presentations Elicit personal examples during class discussion Incorporate students’ lives into reading and writing assignments Assign self reflective informal writing Tap into students’ desire for publicity Once they are in active then no need to worry, the FB environment on its own will drive it DEC 2011: Academic Project Presentation: Masters in Media and Creative Enterprise: Birmingham School of Media C Powered by - Mrunal Bhongale Page 25 of 30
  26. 26. FACEBOOK & CASESTUDY 8 - OTHERS OPINIONS 1 CLASSROOM Student 1: Its been great for getting to know each other better, its useful to come to ask a question about our work as everyone is in the one place. Its been a powerful tool for encouraging each other  Faculty 1: I have found it helpful to stay in touch with your activities (not spying, honest!). Student 2: Using Facebook as an educational aid is something I would describe as a pleasure and a means to interact with other students. for me, it motivates me to complete weekly objectives. Student 3: I think FB is a good tool to keep in touch with others. FB has notifications which are good to get updated quickly. FB has some apps like "Ask question" which is excellent for survey / asking for ideas. However, it also depends on the habit of each person. Sometimes I open FB when I have finished my work, and think "oh now time to relax". So dont really want to do something so serious and important on FB. Also because using FB tends not to be a working place, so sometimes you loose the chances to interact with some people (for example: Matt may not check FB very frequently). After all, I think your idea is great. You could even suggest this to Facebook so that they can improve and add specific functions for online learning :) Student 4: I would say that FB is just another way to stay in touch with my networks. So far, I have been using the archived info for a few ideas, but Ive been limiting myself to that. As Maggie pointed out, its great for surveys, although I havent used them for collecting academic data. FB can never really be a study tool for me. Its because Ive got too many distractions here.DEC 2011: Academic Project Presentation: Masters in Media and Creative Enterprise: Birmingham School of Media C Powered by - Mrunal Bhongale Page 26 of 30
  27. 27. FACEBOOK & CASESTUDY 9 - OTHERS OPINIONS 2 CLASSROOM Student 6: I found it 50/50. I use Facebook solely as a means to stay in touch with friends, which is why I like it. its stress free, so to bring school to Facebook was quite unnerving for me because I kinda felt like my social life was being invaded by work. I also think if this was brought into schools it could open a door to a whole new level of cyber bullying...maybe. on the other hand though, it is good to have an area where people check constantly where you know your questions will be answered and also to have a place where people can update everyone on their work. Student 6: I think face book is a very powerful platform. Easier platform to keep in touch. its amazing how everyones life is a update here. Your never away gem the world. I found fronds after 10yrs who went junior school with me. Its also amazing cause u can categorize ppl on privacy bases. Never really feel violated. its very user friendly. Its a multiple cultural country by itself. Games are a variety over here. As per having an educational platform , I think it will b cool and different . Its available to everyone and updates are always notified immediately. Everyones get a smart Phone these days so where ever they are its available to them. Never away from the world* Student 7: I think its a very useful tool especially for staying up-to-date with our work in-progress. The connectivity value is invaluable as it encourages connections, allowing you to stay in contact with friends, colleagues, lecturers, and employers. (Builds networks!) I also agree with Matt, in the sense that I would use it as a way in which to stay in touch with friends, more so. Having said this, I have found (through this project) that it can be an excellent platform to aid the marketing process. I think many companies are lacking in promotion via platforms such as FB, and utilizing such a tool, can really boost the marketing of a company, product etc. And again, I think it shows advances in particular features such as the surveys, which are quick, and serve there purpose well. Personally, I think Im 50/50 with it - as it can prove massively effective, but can also be quite the distraction too!DEC 2011: Academic Project Presentation: Masters in Media and Creative Enterprise: Birmingham School of Media C Powered by - Mrunal Bhongale Page 27 of 30
