A ’Crash Course’ (2nd Edition) to get you started with social media and web 2.0 for learning and teaching. Today there are thousands of exciting learning tools to explore, but sadly most teachers do not have the time to explore all, or figure out which ones to use. This presentation (and workshop) focuses on several of the most essential learning tools that we can use to facilitate learning and build an effective personal learning environment and network.

The 2nd edition also includes some new interesting social media infographics, and some useful stats related to Malaysia.

  • "At its heart, connectivism is the thesis that knowledge is distributed across a network of connections, and therefore that learning consists of the ability to construct and traverse those networks. It shares with some other theories a core proposition, that knowledge is not acquired, as though it were a thing. Knowledge is, on this theory, literally the set of connections formed by actions and experience.

    • 26. What is RSS?
      RSS stands for Real Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary.
      It is a web page with a .xml file type that can be subscribed to and read by a newsreader (aggregator). The aggregator will find the new content and display it when it becomes available.
      Newsreaders (sometimes called aggregators) are very easy to find and use (stand alone applications or through a web browser).
      In essence, it is content that comes to you, instead of having to search for it. It will save you an infinite amount of time.

      Great for groups researching a topic together or a lecturer that wants to share great websites they have found.
      Others can subscribe to your bookmarks or individual tags and receive them whenever the publisher adds a new bookmark.
      Create working bibliographies for projects by ensuring they share a common tag.
      Build lists of resources with fellow students/ teachers (decide on common tags first).
      Create a network with friends or fellow club members with whom you share an interest.
      Spend a few minutes planning how you’ll tag so that your tags are consistent (remember – no spaces within tags!)
      Plural vs singular
      Teacher’s names / course names
      Clean up your tags periodically using the delete and rename tag functions.
