  • how many of you use social media in your personal life? How many use for work and professional development?
  • There are over 30 definitions of social media. It scales well, gaining strengths from large numbers, bottom-up control rather than top-down. http://heidicohen.com/social-media-definition/
  • In Canada, just about any organizations and companies have some sort of presence on social media. As a nation, we are highly connected and fairly social online.
  • The average social media user age is 37 years old. 55+ is the fastest growing group.
  • had 160,000 students signed up. Two-thirds from outside the US.
  • How does it help education? Level the playing field, costs nothing (well, almost!) and it has a broader/different reach. We can talk to each other directly - huge for virtual workplace, distance learning.
  • Most activities are social - the way we currently design e-learning doesn’t take that into consideration
  • not a huge uptake - not officially supported, it has grown organically, not fully understand what it is for, people are careful to post only work-related comments. We have just reached 1000 users.
  • Include members to share/connect, allow self-organization and control (open vs. closed groups)
