  • 2. What are social media? Dr. Bastian Pelka webinar, 12th December 2013 2
  • 3. What are social media?  Social media are not a new technology  Social media are a new communication style     incremental shared public cooperative  Social media empower users to create, share and alter content  „User“ is everybody with an internet access  „content“ is everything digital: images, text, videos -> opinions!  „sharing“ is the opposit of „owning“  Social media are rather a new way of doing than a technology Dr. Bastian Pelka webinar, 12th December 2013 3
  • 4. What is a social innovation?  „(...) intentional new configuration of social practice with the aim of better solve societal challenges(...)“ (Howaldt / Schwarz 2010)  Distinguishes technological and social layer of innovation  Does not relate to being „good“ or „evil“ Dr. Bastian Pelka webinar, 12th December 2013 4
  • 5. How will social media change the labour market?  Social media will change the style of communication in the „knowledge society“. This has begun to change     labour leisure education …  intellectual work is shaped by social media based cooperation  „unfinished thoughts“ are debated and improved incrementally  Working styles and professional routines and occupations are challenged Dr. Bastian Pelka webinar, 12th December 2013 5
  • 6. Which competences will students need in order to to use social media successfully?       Reflect your own role in a complex process Learn to moderate/facilitate Co-ordinate co-operation, motive a team Accept feedback, give feedback Learn to survive „publicity“ Be critical about sources, data privacy and software platforms  After all, social media require social skills, not IT skills! Dr. Bastian Pelka webinar, 12th December 2013 6
  • 7. …and teachers?     Are often afraid of using social media… …and sometimes forbidden …and afraid of their students knowing it better. …usually don‘t use social media in the classroom  Need to see the reason for using social media – it‘s not a reason in itself  Need to see social media as a social innovation, not as a new technology Dr. Bastian Pelka webinar, 12th December 2013 7
  • 8. The „learn2teach by social web“ curriculum  L2T adresses teachers who have never used social media in the classroom or at home.  It is a vocational training e-learning course with appr. 100 hours workload.  It aims at the pedagogical level of social media:  How can school prepare students for a working life that is shaped by social media?  How can school exploit the added pedagogical value of social media?  The curriculum provides inspiration for lessons, not guidance to use technology.  It is designed by teachers – some of them had not used social media before and speaks „from teachers for teachers“. Dr. Bastian Pelka webinar, 12th December 2013 8
  • 9. The „learn2teach by social web“ curriculum  It builds on some convictions:  Pupils will learn the technology way themselfes. What school needs to supply are media competences.  School is the best space to adress those competences, it should provide a reflection space for the role of social media for working and leisure life.  You can not use social media in the classroom - nor prepare your students for a reflected use - without doing it yourself. Dr. Bastian Pelka webinar, 12th December 2013 9
  • 10. Social media in the classroom – some examples  Let students do a calculation in an online shared spreadsheet  A teacher made use of the „addict“ behaviour of social networks: he posted a new math challenge every week – his students checked his math group every day! Dr. Bastian Pelka webinar, 12th December 2013 10
  • 11. Social media in the classroom – some examples  Let students interview each other or „experts“ on a video  Share those videos, make a contest.  Link videos to correspondent youtube videos, create a group, discuss them Dr. Bastian Pelka webinar, 12th December 2013 11
  • 12. Social media in the classroom – some examples  Let students do a roleplay via twitter!  Form a hastag like #Macbethlesson  Assign roles to students and let them act on their twitter accounts in their roles  See what evolves – which new interpretations you get from.  Quite apart from the fun value, students really did have to understand the text in detail to be able to tweet. Dr. Bastian Pelka webinar, 12th December 2013 12
  • 13. Some lessons learned  Students can profit from social media as learning environments when they co-operate  Teachers need to bring „school“ and „reality“ into these environments – work with clear names and set the rules!  Show borders between „sharing“ and „copy & pasting“  Understand social media as a new space – with old rules and known challenges  Social media have a great power to motivate – and even empower those who tend to be more silent. Dr. Bastian Pelka webinar, 12th December 2013 13
