      • Characteristics of Social Media
      • The Term “Social Media” refers to online tools (web sites) that
      • depend on user contributions and interactions between people to
      • build shared meaning and value. It is:
      • Participatory : It blurs the line between producer and consumer, media and audience.
      • Open and Democratic: It encourages voting, comments and the sharing of information. For this reason it is seen as authentic and trustworthy.
      • Conversational: Two (or more) way conversation rather than one-directional broadcast. Is personal, specific, and engaging.
      • Communal: Supports formation, growth and strength of communities around a particular shared interest.
      • Connected: Thrives on being connected, making use of links to other sites, resources and people, rather than being territorial and proprietary.

      Traditional Media Brand in control One way / Deliver msg Transmit information Focused on the information Teaching Org creates content Social Media Audience in control Two way / Conversation Facilitate learning Focused on the learners Influencing, Involving Student and co-created content How are you adapting?
      • “ Schools will need to develop centers of inquiry and evaluation whose main goals will be to teach collaboration, responsibility for the good works of the group, trust and creative integration of various fields of knowledge across disciplines ...
      • Classroom teachers will need to learn to be facilitators and negotiators of human communication and meaning-creation . The idea of teachers who know something that needs to be passed on to someone else, as if it were a physical object, will also disappear.
      • Instead, instructors will need to be orchestrators of deeply felt human processes where the construction of human meaning (or meaning-making) will be the central purpose of the work of young people.”
