This session from the 2012 TI:ME/JEN Conference provided a brief introduction to the many social networking resources available to music educators. It focused on the “4 Cs” (Creation, Connection, Conversation, Collaboration) that can help teachers use these resources in a safe way to help with organization in the program. More important, however, the session is focused on how these resources can be used to enhance students’ learning. This session gave examples of social networking use in all levels and disciplines, so it was applicable to all grade levels.

  • What IS Web 2.0 Anyway? Features of “Web 1.0”:  Static, One-Way Content  “Webmaster” creates content, public consumes content  Think of it as a scholarly journal  Example: FAQ Page, Contact Page Web 2.0 is…  Dynamic and Two-Way!  Content is created by all parties who access a site  Think of it as a professional conference  Example: YouTube, Wikipedia, Blogs
  • What is “Social Networking?” “Social Networking” describes a group of Web 2.0 services that help you meet people, and share ideas! Examples of Social Networking sites:  Facebook  MySpace  Flickr  LinkedIn  Twitter  Google+  Blogs  MusicPLN
  • In Other Words… Social Networking allows us to engage in the “4 C’s”:  Creation  Connection  Conversation  CollaborationThis style of tool isn’t just about posting information, it’s about sharing it and discussing it!
  • The Layout For Each of the “4 C’s”:  Resources  In-depth explanation  How can it help YOU and THEM  Layman’s terms!  Examples of real application by real music educators REMEMBER: All links are available at http://andyzweibel.com/timejen12
  • Creation Social Networking is based around content Importance of content creation:  For students: creativity, group work  For teachers: sharing with other teachers (new ideas) Resources:  Blogs  Podcasts  RSS and Syndication
  • Blogs What are they?  Short for “web log” – online journal  My definition: “A tool for content creation and sharing” How can they help…  … YOU:  Write a blog with your ideas  Subscribe to others’ blogs for their ideas  … THEM:  Have students contribute to blogs as part of class  Rehearsal Reflections, Listening Lessons, etc. Examples: MusicEdMajor.net, MusTech.net
  • Podcasts Video or Audio Blogs How can they help…  … YOU:  Subscribe to resource-sharing podcasts  Professional Development on your morning commute!  … THEM:  Create a podcast of your students’ work  Share with parents, friends, community – ADVOCACY! Not so fast! Legal considerations discussion coming later.
  • Podcast Examples Jim Frankel – Managing Director of SoundTree:  http://fams.podomatic.com/ Scott Watson – Composer, Music Tech Teacher:  What Music Means: http://whatmusicmeans.mypodcast.com/ Larry Marra – Retired Music Teacher  MusicTeachers’ 911: http://musicteachers911.com/
  • RSS/Syndication What is it??  RSS Syndication brings the information to you RSS Feeds – List of updates Feed Readers—Google Reader, Bloglines iOS Apps – FeedlerRSS, Flipboard
  • Syndication Examples Blog Syndication  Integrated in Blog Platform!  FeedBurner – Advanced Features  Analytics  Email Subscription  Adsense Podcast Syndication  Blog Integration—Plugins  iTunes Integration!
  • RSS/Syndication Resources OPML – File containing multiple RSS Feeds  Import into RSS Reader  Music Education OPML Project Web-based RSS Aggregation  MusicEdNews.com Professional Development in a Box!
  • Connection Social Networking is all about meeting people to share ideas! Connecting with other music educators helps create a PLN: Professional Learning Network  More on this to come… This is more for YOU than THEM Resources:  Facebook  LinkedIn
  • FacebookBefore we begin…IT IS POSSIBLE TO BE SAFE ON FACEBOOK!
  • Facebook Personal Pages vs. Fan Pages Personal Pages – DON’T FRIEND THE STUDENTS  Control Default Privacy (Public, Friends, Custom)  How You Connect – Who can find you  Tagging, Apps, Past Posts, etc.  Benefits:  Connection with other music educators  “I Teach Music Technology” Group: http://facebook.com/groups/musictechnology  “Band Directors” Group: http://facebook.com/groups/banddirectors  Connecting with Resource Providers (specials)
  • Facebook Fan Pages NO personal communication is possible  NO Chat  NO Private Messages One-Way “Relationship”  You don’t need to approve who “Likes” your page  You can’t contact anyone who “Likes” your page directly Fan Page for Your Program  News from your program  Links worth reading (for students)  Media (photos, videos) of your program – PR!  Create events for your concerts using the page  Post the event on your page, students can invite their friends
  • LinkedIn Online PROFESSIONAL Social Network “Connections,” NOT “Friends” Your Online Resume:  Summary, Experience (Current, Past), Education  AND: Websites, Online Presences Recommendations Groups Resume Generator Job Applications (Sometimes)
  • Now… Take Out Your Phones!
  • Conversation As separated as we are, we need ways to continue learning Conversation tools can also enhance your curriculum Resources:  Twitter  Google+  MusicPLN  Skype
  • Twitter: Micro-Blogging Twitter Basics  140-character “Tweets” to followers  Don’t need to accept a new follower  Replies, Retweets (FWD) Twitter is NOT about telling people what you ate for breakfast! Twitter IS a blogging platform Twitter IS a tool for content creation and sharing. Twitter IS an incredible medium for professional development
  • Hashtags on Twitter In Twitter lingo… Hashtag = Keyword Hashtags let you search for specific topics Some examples:  #followfriday  #musiced  #mpln  #edchat
  • #MusEdChat on Twitter The Problems:  Teachers are Secluded  Not many music teachers at each school  This makes Professional Development hard! The Solution:  #MusEdChat  Weekly Twitter Chat on Music Education
  • #MusEdChat: The Chat Monday During the day:  Search for “#musedchat” to find topic poll (@jguarr) Monday Nights, 8pm Eastern Time:  Sign on Twitter (or use an app!)  Search for “#musedchat”  Read the Tweets  Respond using #musedchat hashtag  Reply  Retweet  Ask Questions!
  • Other Twitter Resources: Lists Twitter List: Follow multiple users at once  Coworkers  Friends/Family  Interest Groups (Miami Hurricane Sports) Dr. J. Pisano (MusTech.net): Top Music Educators  @pisanojm/mused Make your own list!  Twitter Homepage -> Lists -> Create a List
