Transcript

  • 1. 10 reasons why you should use social media in your teaching… Mark Feltham @markfeltham666 Caroline Keep @ka81 Liverpool John Moores University 3rd June #melsigljmu @melsigHEdW rks
  • 2. The challenge... • Fundamentals of Science (Year long) • Core Module (350 students) across 6 programmes • Large amount of statistics (traditionally ‘dry’ subject) • 9 o’clock Monday morning • Students didn’t know each other • They had a range of learning styles • The old style of teaching wasn’t working for many students
  • 3. The trouble with taxonomies
  • 4. Flexible pedagogies, creative learning and the ‘maker ethos’
  • 5. How it works… • Closed Facebook Groups • Semester 1 (ALL – alternate SM and traditional) • Set Tasks (TASKPRODS) on Facebook • Students post work to Facebook • Feedback to Facebook • Semester 2 (CHOICE) • Didactic v Creative Projects via SM
  • 6. Stats Guides: printed / interactive
  • 7. Stats Guides: Video Guide
  • 8. Data Collection: observational / data logging
  • 9. Data Collection: DIY experiments The output Result
  • 10. Data Collection: Ornithopters
  • 11. Data Collection: Rube Goldberg Machines
  • 12. #statsexpo #doingstatisticsdifferently
  • 13. 10 reasons why you should use social media in your teaching… HEdW rks
  • 14. 1. Everything is in one familiar place • 99% students are already on it • No need to learn the quirks of a new platform
  • 15. 2. It’s quick and easy to use • No separate login • Uploading is easy • Posting is easier still… •…and instantaneous • Mobile version is good
  • 16. 3. It’s a great way for students to get to know each other… and you • Breaks down barriers • Builds rapport • Sense of community • Allows students to share in the experience • Promotes engagement
  • 17. 4. Setting work is… • Quick • Easy • …and you can be as creative as you like • So it’s fun!
  • 18. 5. It can cater for a variety of different learning styles • How work is set • How feedback is given • How students demonstrate their learning • Student centric
  • 19. Student uploads (n=949): 46% were…
  • 20. Uploads, posts and comments
  • 21. BUT 54% of uploads were images
  • 22. Video Posts
  • 23. The importance of choice • Promotes ownership
  • 24. 6. It promotes creativity “I call this piece “Frequency Histogram with Guinea Pig”
  • 25. 7. Giving feedback is timely and efficient • Like, Comment, Msg • Instantaneous (notifications) • Targetted (‘Ask an ye shall receive’…)
  • 26. 7. Feedback • Round-ups and general feedback • Peer to peer
  • 27. 8. Students can decide when THEY want to work • Students can nip in and out as often or as little as they like (pace) • Can work when they want to (jobs, childcare) • Drip-drip… keeps module ticking over (steady learning) • Avoids the ‘punctuated disequilibrium ‘of traditional timetabling
  • 28. Most work wasn’t done on lecture day…
  • 29. ..nor in Uni hours
  • 30. Breakdown of 691 posts (24 hours)
  • 31. 9. It’s a great way to manage group work • Transparent • Scrape posts • Weight group marks • Break off into subgroups
  • 32. 95% of groups work like this… May explain why only 33% students choose to work in groups!
  • 33. 10. It’s mobile… think BYOD4L
  • 34. Almost half of all posts were from mobile devices
  • 35. So, what did the students think?
  • 36. Live Twitter Feed from the Student Stats EXPO
  • 37. The students’ views “With no limits or boundaries our imaginations went wild and loads of people made machines (Rube Goldbergs) that went over entire rooms. “A much more memorable way of learning statistics, because it was fun” “Stats made so much more sense in the context of using actual data we had collected.” “I have thoroughly enjoyed this module as being able to carry out a project has made learning and practicing statistics and SPSS so much easier” “I have loved how it’s given more scope to take charge of my own work and work under my own steam”
  • 38. The students’ views “I have really enjoyed it. It makes you more independent and also using Facebook is a lot quicker with regards feedback.” “It was awesome! Working in a group was fun as we were able to use each other’s skills to our advantage.” “I really enjoyed having the freedom to work on my stats in my own time... the task set was more of a fun activity than an assignment! I feel I learned a lot more than I would have done from lectures at 9am.” “The Facebook module made life and the way the work needed completing a lot easier! Relaxing, stress free and the future of university learning! “
