Transcript

  • 1. Connections That Matter By Michelle Pittman-ET8027 Information Systems-EDLD 5362
  • 2. What is a network?
    • Mathews states it “is a way to share information or move it among locations efficiently and effectively” (2004).
    • Why care about the definition?
      • Diigo allows users to bookmark their favorite websites for access from any computer.
      • Ning is a social network builder.
  • 3. DIIGO (Dee’go)
    • Diigo stands for Digest of Internet Information, Groups and Other stuff (Diigo, 2011).
    • “ Diigo is two services in one -- it is a research and collaborative research tool on the one hand, and a knowledge-sharing community and social content site on the other” (Diigo, 2011).
  • 4.
    • Diigo was ranked #15 in 2010 among the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies (2011) Top 100 Tools for Learning.
    • Noteworthy Features (Berkmann, 2007)
      • On site text highlighting
      • “ sticky note” annotations
  • 5. Educators *diigo*
    • Diigo Educators is group of educators sharing bookmarks and best practices.
    • Membership to this group must be approved.
  • 6. NING
    • “ Ning is the world's largest platform for creating social websites” (Ning, 2010).
    • According to Educause (2008), Ning is a social network building site that allows users to have a public or private social network. Users can join networks or create their own.
  • 7.
    • Ning was ranked #31 in 2010 among the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies (2011) Top 100 Tools for Learning.
    • In reviewing the Ning website, it is a paid service.
      • Was free, but became a paid service early in 2010. (Ning, 2010)
  • 8. Celebrating Texas Voices *ning*
    • Celebrating Texas Voices is a learning community focused on sharing digital stories.
    • Open to students, teachers, and all interested in storytelling.
    • Membership and posts must be approved by a StoryChasers administrator.
  • 9. Networking Potential
    • The collaboration that comes from the many social networking options available are important to education.
    • Helping our districts and administrators recognize inexpensive and open-source social networks that are available for teacher and student use will be a valuable commodity in the classroom.
  • 10.
    • Robert Moore (2006) mentioned a very interesting quote by Jim Collins (Good to Great), “Good-to-great organizations avoid technology fads and bandwagons, yet they become pioneers in the application of carefully selected technologies.”
    • If educators can find the right network, the potential for personal and professional growth can be extreme.
    • Furthermore, the benefits to students can be exponentially greater than in a non-networked environment.
