  • Joel Berman – Twitter and YouTube Class Example: I have been using Twitter to collect data on exercises that were confusing in class or those that students simply want another example to refer to. I then record examples of the top questions/concerns and upload them to YouTube. One of the related links (in response to the requests for long division) is: http://youtu.be/Y3yXVnmKuAEAmanda Kern: During the fall 2011 and spring 2012 semesters web design faculty teaching the GRA 2141C web page design course worked toward creating more awareness of social media throughout the semester. The hopes were to help students increase their awareness and see the professional benefits of social media. The following activities were implemented each semester to help increase awareness of social media’s professional benefits. One of the examples is by Brian Croxall (@briancroxall ) who is using Twitter in his ENG 456 Reading Technology course to engage his student with social media in an age of new media. This is a month long Twitter-related assignment after he has already spent time with students discussing media systems. After gaining foundation requirements, the students are to follow the class account “Croxall” and other members of the class, posting at least once a day for a month and using the course hashtag #eng465. Croxall focused on having students play with Twitter and see if it changes the culture or society of the class in any appreciable way.The final assignment is for students to write up an evaluation of the assignment and what Twitter teaches about community and media. This assignment would be a low-stake, low-entry form of social media to implement into a course for the first time.Survey. Conduct initial survey to assess student's current awareness of social mediaIntroduction to Social Media. Define "What is Social Media?"Introduction to Types of Social Media. Overview types of Social Media.Introduction to Twitter. Overview Twitter and offer extra credit for students who actively participate in optional social media activities.Social Media Formative Assessment. Encourage students to offer feedback after presentations, demonstrations, and lectures via twitter.Social Media Tips. Offer tips related to relevant course material being learned to students via twitter. Encourage students to do the same (as part of extra credit.)Social Media Opinions. Share survey initial survey results of students, faculty & professionals.Social Media Best Practices. Create a discussion that outlines best practices for students and designers.Social Media Integration. Create awareness of ways social media is being used in web sites and how social media can be integrated into web pages.Survey. Conduct end survey to assess student's awareness of social media after social media activities.Students were asked “How important is social media to your career in graphic design?” At the start of the semester 50% felt it was somewhat important, 42% felt it was very important, and only 8% of students felt it was not important. At the end of the semester 47% felt it was somewhat important, 50% felt it was very important and only 3% felt it was not important. At the end of the semester only one student still felt social media was not important in their career as a graphic designer.
  • The following findings were taken from the faculty survey in the fall 2011 semester:137 total faculty at Valencia voluntarily took the social media survey. 43% were tenured, 34% were adjuncts, 4% were 4 month full-time, 1% were 10 month full-time, and 17% were 10 month tenure track.Of the faculty that took the survey 87% teach traditional face-to-face courses, 38% teach hybrid courses, and 34% teach online courses.16% of faculty refuse to use twitter or facebook.82% of faculty don’t allow students to use social media in class during class time.9% of faculty feel social media is just a fad.60% of faculty use youtube with their classes or for personal use51% of faculty claim to be using social media in some way to engage their students.12% of faculty admit to being addicted to social media.70% of faculty do not feel blackboard is social media.83% do not feel the experience of blackboard is equivalent to social media.During this action research project professional designers were surveyed. Among the professionals who responded, 72% claimed they have offered job opportunities through social media and 68% claim they are more likely to hire a designer who is using social media in an inspiring and positive manner (in addition to being a good designer). A total of 87% of industry professionals admitted to trying to learn more about designers online before they hire them. It only makes sense that our students are using social media and doing so in a professional manner that will promote their future career. In addition, industry professionals were nearly unanimous (98%) in suggesting that educators embrace social media to engage students.
