  • Flexible session – you’ll be able to go off in your own groups, experiment with the social media
  • Social networking, social bookmarking, blogging, videos, collaborative writing – all these buzzwords that you hear within Education – social media embodies all of these.
  • Carl Rogers – famous psychologist and educator, who is credited with introducing the person-centred approach within psychology, or within education, the student-centred approach (the idea of considering and planning education from the individual student’s perspective).By introducing social media, you are obviously adding to their content knowledge, but you’re also enriching their experience and introducing new ways of learning. This is why we are so keen on social media within education.
  • Blogs as you will know are online journals, with entries typically displayed in a reverse chronological order.Wanted to highlight a few examples. Attic = collaborative blog (note that you can have these)Mention: chronology and tagging. Also, we have WP handouts – do have a go even if not interested in social media – you have the option of producing a blog as part of your assessment.
  • More of a flexible structure – can grow organically
  • If you hope to aggregate resources, embed discussion forums etc, Google sites is a good way to do it.
  • If you were interested in resource development, you could choose to design a resource from scratch or to adapt an OER.
  • There are different types of creative commons licences. Attribution; Att + Share alike; Att + no derivatives; Att+ Non-commercial; Att + Non-commercial+share alike; Att + Non-commercial+ no derivatives.
  • A number of repositories
