  30. 30. #studentvoiceSocial Media“Before studying it, I used Facebook and Twittermainly just for keeping in contact with people,but since have discovered they both have muchmore to offer. They are places to discover newinformation and boost your knowledge. That botheducation and socialising can be rolled intoone, and you can discover so much about people inthe world by just following them.”
  31. 31. #studentvoiceSocial Media“I have learnt that social media/social networks arenot just to be used as a distraction for not gettingwork done but can be used as an aid to get the workdone. Social media/social networks can provideuseful tools to help with academic learning.”

  33. 33. 3 tenets of my teachingopenness • social media • student voice/choice
  34. 34. openness • social media • student voice/choice AIM: choose openness where possible & where appropriate USE open resources CREATE create to share, CC-licensed SHARE openly, including my/our own learning
  35. 35. openness • social media • student voice/choice AIM: enable connection and learning across the (artificial) boundaries of time and space TIME... class time, term time, academic year SPACE... classrooms, labs, desks, buildings
  36. 36. openness • social media • student voice/choice AIM: use as many opportunities as possible for students to Choose & to Create TOPICS ASSESSMENT MEDIA RUBRICS TOOLS ...

  38. 38. Learners need to practice and experiment withdifferent ways of enacting their identities, andadopt subject positions through different socialtechnologies and media.These opportunities can only be supported byacademic staff who are themselves engagedin digital practices and questioning their ownrelationship with knowledge. - Keri Facer & Neil Selwyn (2010)
  39. 39. How much of your digital identity do you share with your students?How does using social & participatory media change power relations between students and teachers/lecturers, if at all? What are the biggest challenges in using social media in formal education,for students, for educators, for institutions?
