    LTDC: Professional networks, gin, and pretty pictures: social media communities for CPD LTDC: Professional networks, gin, and pretty pictures: social media communities for CPD Presentation Transcript

    • Professional networks, gin, and pretty pictures: social media communities for CPD R. John Robertson LTDC Regional Showcase UW Stevens Point 2013-03-13
    • What this presentation is not about ● Gin prompting unfortunate facebook status updates ● LOLCATS
    • Technologies Communication and status tools such as: ● Twitter /Facebook Bookmarking tools ● Delcious/ Diigo / Scoop.it / Pinterest / etc. Blogs ● (sort of, but also another discussion about what is publishing; digital scholarship etc.)
    • Affordances of Technologies Affordances of social media ● not controlled | vulnerable? ● often instant | how quick a response? ● brief | what sort of communication? ● more or less open/ public | boundaries? ● distant community made local | but which community?
    • Twitter - my tool of choice public # concise bookmarkish distributed organisation distributed community of practice network of tools and services network is easy and easy to flex
    • Changes Ahead But pick a tool and remember that it's not yours think about data export hold the community tightly and platform lightly ; replicate contacts across tools be aware that the community and technology IS transitory (e.g. tweetdeck)
    • Public access What you do online, especially with social media is *public* Yes, there are various privacy protection mechanisms but once you write and share it it's outside of your control. Think about privacy and creating space for others
    • Professional Development Helping the academic debate, conference chat, journal paper, and water cooler integrate into an online world. ● How do you interact with your peers? ● What parts of that might replicate to an online environment? ● What won't?
    • Where to begin? Phone a Friend? ● find someone you know and see who they follow ● look on their page and watch for the professional conversations
    • Twitter bios kind of useful...
    • #conference search for a conference #tag look at who is posting why? ● are they extending the conversation beyond event? ● are they commenting? ● are they seeking engagement and feedback?
    • Mooc's... and twitter chat #tag use also occurs around deliberate online conversations and around some MOOCs. ● some professional communities promote conversations eg #lrnchat ● or given the % of professionals sitting in on MOOCs for fun it's one way to find connections #oldsmooc
    • Automaton or person? What do you tweet? Do you create, share, or discuss? Does @yournamehere produce a response?
    • So what's this about Gin? Gin o'clock ● Thinking about what makes connections ● Making connections through social media is about the personal as much as it is at a conference
    • Personhood & online identity "It is only when we bring the personal (not the private) to our discourse that we understand the rich complexity of individual being out of which civilization is built–or out of which it ought to be built. [...] Sharing the personal, as distinguished from oversharing the private, means engaging with personhood in all its messy and glorious complexity, and all its potential, too. If, as Jon Udell reminds us, “context is a service we provide for each other,” the context is not merely informational, nor is it about matters that should remain private." Gardner Campbell http://www.gardnercampbell.net/blog1/?p=2039
    • And the pretty pictures? Network analysis and analytics, there's more... #edusocmedia by @mhawksey
    • Conferences? #cetis13 http://hawksey. info/tagsexplorer/? key=tHKTsuC5Qx ppKsaBAnEgg0g& sheet=oaw&menti ons=true
    • With an aside about making things tangible again... Capturing the transitory with Storify Reclaiming the data with Momento (etc.) and twitter archives > making the digital physical again.
