  • Today, everything is social media
  •  
  •  
  •  
  • Facebook me!
    • There are now more social networking accounts than there are people in the world - 6 million teenage girls
    • Facebook Me , an original play written and performed by teens at the upcoming New York International Fringe Festival
    • Neil Postman reminds us of that technology:
      • is a Faustian bargain – technology giveth and taketh away but not always in equal measure
      • is not additive but ecological
      • often has winners and losers
      • always embeds some epistemological, social or political bias
      • tends to become mythic and part of the normal social order

  • Time to rethink
    • Technology in education – we can do better
    • The emerging forms of interactive media, information communication technologies and social networking are reshaping almost every aspect of our work and social life
    • These new practices and literacies challenge our traditional ideas about the form and function of education
    • New opportunities for participation and interaction are arising from virtual communities of interest where users are active content creators re-mixing, re-purposing and re-distributing content
    • Technology is quite clearly much more than just a tool but can be an evocative object to think with and an engine of social and cultural change
    • CCC in 21C - Create, Communicate, Collaborate
  • Waves of change Source: Findlay, J. (2008). Learning as a game: exploring cultural differences between teachers and learners using a team learning system, PhD thesis , School of Economics and Information Systems, University of Wollongong.

    • Organic food auditor
    • Polarity management mentor

    • Ecological footprint auditor
    • Conversation architect
    • Recycling consultant
    • Brain fitness coach
    • No-waste consultant
    • Complex projects leader
    • Chief cultural officer
  • New ways of thinking “… we must develop not only the technical capability but also the intellectual capacity for transforming tacit pedagogical knowledge into commonly usable and visible knowledge” “ We have an opportunity to change the way we create and exchange information, knowledge, and culture [and offer greater] opportunities for cultural self-reflection and human connection.” “ The learning process is about learning-to-be a practitioner rather than just learning about....” “… we need not simply more information, but people to assimilate, understand, and make sense of it.”

What PISA studies tell us, Figure 4.6, p.65. Index of ICT Internet/entertainment use Index of ICT program/software use
  • Other leaders have said similar …
    • “ Quick, turn something on…I’m starting to think”
    • Homer Simpson
  • Students & ICT (PISA - OECD)
    • “ The quality of ICT usage , rather than necessarily the quantity, that will determine the contribution that these technologies make to student outcomes”
    • “ Students are more likely to use computers frequently at home than at school, and the educational value of computers needs to be considered in a range of settings , not just in terms of the classroom ”
    • “ Educational benefits of computers seem to occur when students use ICT tools that are not designed purely for learning”
    • “ When it comes to using computers for high-level tasks such as programming, the gender gap is wide ”
    • “ Usage at school may help to compensate for this disadvantage , although the relatively weaker association between school access/usage and performance raises questions over the extent to which it can fully compensate.”

  • Networked learning
    • “ In the end, network literacy is all about our own ability to reach out to others to start our own fires, to attend to our own learning needs, and to navigate these new spaces...”
    • “ This new networked space where we can all connect, create and collaborate is one filled with amazing potentials for learning, many that promise to reshape the way we go about our lives both in and outside of school.”
    • How quickly we begin to understand these potentials, first for ourselves and then for our classrooms, will in no small way determine the preparedness of students to compete successfully in the world they will soon inherit”.

    • Social learning – supporting different connections between people, tools and knowledge
    • Disaggregate the artifact – Look around and within the device
    • Need to develop more transformative understandings of users and technologies in context (presence and place)
    • No one-size-fits-all - the need for multiple, interactive channels
    • Network literacies - move from browser to contributor
    • Engage users - and give them control over how they interact with the environment
