  1. 1. Social Media for Education #MANSHIP4002 LECTURE 20
  2. 2. Social Media for Education “What are the benefits of social media to students? There are plenty: greater student engagement, greater student interest, students taking more control of their education and more responsibility for their education.” – Howard Rheingold
  3. 3. Why should you (the student) blog? “They say that it’s one of the best things you can put on your resume, that you have a blog that you update at least twice a week. It’s living, breathing proof that you know what you’re talking about and that you have enough passion to write about it that you’ll do it for free.” – Jimmy Bean, Senior Communications Major, California State University-Fullerton
  4. 4. Social Media Tools for Education  Wikis  Blog posts (student blogs and class blogs)  Videos (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.)  Twitter chats, Google hangouts  SlideShare (for lecture ppts)  Storify (to collect class tweets in one place)  Podcasts  Video games! (minecraft, Second Life)
  5. 5. Faculty Awareness of Social Media http://files.eric.ed.gov/fulltext/ED535130.pdf
  6. 6. Faculty Use of Social Media  “The evidence is also strong for the level of integration of social media into course assignments. Over 40% of faculty have assigned students to read or view social media as part of course assignments, and 20% have assigned students to comment on or post to social media sites.” http://files.eric.ed.gov/fulltext/ED535130.pdf

  11. 11. Social Media in the Classroom  Only 41 percent of faculty use social media in the classroom, but this use continues to experience steady year-to-year growth  Faculty are sophisticated consumers of social media. They match different sites to their varying personal, professional, and teaching needs  Concerns remain about privacy, maintaining the class as a private space for free and open discussion, and the integrity of student submissions  Most faculty agree that “the interactive nature of online and mobile technologies create better learning environments” and that digital communication has increased communication with students  Faculty believe that online and mobile technologies can be distracting, and that they have resulted in longer working hours and more stress http://www.edudemic.com/social- media-in-education/
