  • Social Media …Social Networking Social media is a term for the tools and platforms people use to publish, converse and share content online. The tools include blogs, wikis, podcasts, and sites to share photos and bookmarks. Social networking sites are online places where users can create a profile for themselves, and then socialize with others using a range of social media tools including blogs, video, images, tagging, lists of friends, forums and messaging.
  • Social Media: Society & Citizenship
  • ~The Conversation ~ blogging, commenting or contributing - the currency of social networking.
  • We get comfortable in our world… then something comes along and absolutely disrupts it. The Iceman thought his world would never change – until the refrigerator replaced him.
  • charlesdyer's photostream
  • It is difficult to predict the future and we generally get uncomfortable with change.
  • Over the ages, Many People have Feared New Technology
  • “The free access which many young people have…has poisoned the mind and corrupted the morals of many a promising youth.” Reverend Enos Hitchcock, Memoirs of the Bloomsgrove Family, 1790 He was writing about…..readily accessible novels!
  • Reading themselves to a state of delusion?
  • “This new form of entertainment has gone far to blast maidenhood……… Depraved adults with candies and pennies beguile children with the inevitable result” Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, 1909 The Movie Theater
  • “Does it break up the home life and the old practice of visiting friends?” The Knights of Columbus…1933 The Telephone
  • Each new technological advance was viewed with suspicion and distrust by many.
  • And now…texting The demise of the phone call.
  • There is good reason.
  • “Why the Internet Will Fail” "No online database will replace your daily newspaper, no CD-ROM can take the place of a competent teacher and no computer network will change the way government works.“ Clifford Stoll, Newsweek, Feb 27, 1995

  • But the old way has problems…. 1. Too many websites to visit http://www.stumbleupon.com/ 2. Difficult to organize emails and attachments 3. Only companies and organizations have a “voice.” Now WEB 2.0 offers the ability to talk outside the usual channels 1. 2. 3. 4. Personal Publishing (blogs) Easy to create and edit websites (wikis) Publish and share photos, video (Flickr, YouTube) Lots of ways to share and collaborate
  • “Today's phones are almost like people," in that they have senses such as eyes (a camera), ears (a microphone) and skin (a touch screen). Google VP – Marrisa Mayer • She heralds the "a sensor revolution," including data Vibration…..Tilt…..Rotation….. Navigation…Sound....Airflow.… Light… Temperature....Biological….Chem ical….Humidity..Pressure….
  • The Curated Experience, Convergent Devices & Net Neutrality http://counternotions.com/2010/05/17/curation/ How convergent devices overthrew civilization!
  • Is Curation Ok? How do you feel about that?
  • “Perhaps the most pernicious proposition of the “everything must be open” crusade is the notion that curation is bad and anti-freedom. Soldiers of this crusade confuse freedom with competition. Our museums are not Apple, unlike Android, football-field sized warehouses where art curates it software offerings. For instance, objects are indiscriminately dumped and our magazines and blogs are not amorphous there are no porn aps at the Apple store. Is containers of randomly selected articles. Our this a good or bad classrooms, restaurants, hospitals and thing? indeed all our civilized institutions are firmly reliant on curation of one kind or another. The goal should be for curators to compete, not for curation to be declared illegal and unholy by the “open” zealots.” ~ Kontra
  • Who’s behind the curtain? “Just as Adobe is desperately trying to yell at the world, “Don’t buy into Apple’s walled garden, get locked into our own proprietary Flash,” so is Google trying to misdirect consumers’ attention from its own monopolistic sins to Apple’s mobile platform where 100 million users voted with their own money to enjoy 200,000 apps. The evil man behind the curtain in this scenario is not Apple’s curation, it’s the frightening prospect of Google getting cut off from search and ad revenue derived from its naked domination of the search box on top of your web browser. That, unfortunately, doesn’t sound like an appealing public cry, hence the “Curated Computing” misdirection whining.”
  • Why it matters! Most of today’s educational content comes in textbooks, which Bryan Polivka likens to CDs in “Why the iPad really could change everything.” http://www.newsweek.com/2010/03/25/think-really-different.html He asks us to wonder about the textbook “single” and imagines a future in which we can create a learning “playlist” for a course that mixes tracks from Macmillan, Pearson and others. The future suggests that it won’t stop there and digital “papers” and assignments will be elaborations (riffs?) on those textbook singles and the best ones will be added to the library from which future students construct their playlists. Do you like that the total cost of textbooks for this course was $1.16*? (*assuming you bought it used from Amazon from a social media seller.)

  • BAND AID Published: Thursday, April 15, 2010 12:03 PM EDT Ryan Brannon, a senior at Saltsburg Senior High School, received a plaque from Red Cross volunteer Rache Station honoring him for his fundraising efforts for the Red Cross.

  • “We are moving from an information age to an OPINION AGE .” Warren Sack, Associate Professor, Film & Digital Media School, University of California, Santa Cruz
  • “The social landscape is emotional Transparency and authenticity are not emotions.” Brian Solis - digital analyst, sociologist and futurist
  • “Youth exhibit agency and an expertise that often exceeds that of their elders, resulting in intergenerational struggle over authority and control over learning and literacy.”
  • “ Peer-based learning relies on a context of reciprocity, in which kids feel they have a stake in self-expression as well as a stake in evaluating and giving feedback to one another.”
