From slideshare Presentation by Lyn Hilt and Eric Sheninger
Why do we need to embrace Social Media? "Students in the 21st century should have experience with and develop skills around technological tools used in the classroom and the world around them. Through this they will learn about technology and learn through technology. In addition, they must be able to select the most appropriate tools to address particular needs." ( From NCTE's Framework for 21st Century Curriculum and Assessment ) 2007
Why do we need to embrace Social Media? " Just as media and technology are integrated in school and life in the twenty-first century, skills related to media use (both critical analysis and production of media) are integrated throughout the standards. . " ( From Common Core State Standards ) 2011
Why do we need to embrace Social Media? " To promote student learning through the use of mobile learning devices and social media in instruction that further prepares students to be active, constructive participants in the highly connected world in which they already live and will soon work. ." ( From NASSP Position Statement on Using Mobile and Social Technologies in school ) 2011
This is why... " For most of the twentieth century our educational system has been built on the assumption that teaching is necessary for learning to occur. Accordingly, education has been seen as a process of transferring information from a higher authority (the teacher) down to the student. This model, however, just can’t keep up with the rapid rate of change in the twenty-first century." Thomas, Douglas (2011).
