  6. 6. What is Social media? <br /><ul><li> constitutes a wide range of ideas, applications, websites, and tools that exist to help people communicate and network.
  7. 7. There are four common mediums in which online communication can occur: text, audio, photo, and video</li></ul>Now, before you can help us, you need to know “What is Social Media?”<br />
  8. 8. Here are some common types of Social Media.<br />
  9. 9. Here are some examples of social Media!<br />
  10. 10. We are just a tool to improve communication between people.<br />Ok. <br />Now, I am sure you know the meaning of social media. <br />Do you think we should be blamed for the impact we have on teacher-student relationships?<br />There are<br />Digital hidden transcripts<br />Teacher student Power Play<br />Dialogic Resistance<br />We feel that human should be blamed!<br />My friends will now, tell you more about these concepts.<br />We are not saying this without any evidence. We can explain our claim using three main concepts.<br />
  11. 11. HOLD ON TIGHT!<br />
  12. 12. Hi, I am SAF. I will explain to you about…<br />Digital hidden transcripts<br />Hi, I am SIT.I will explain to you about…<br />Teacher- student Power Play<br />Hi, I am AUZ. I will explain to you about…<br />Dialogic Resistance<br />
  13. 13. Digital hidden transcripts (Liew, 2008)<br /><ul><li>James Scott (1990) coined the term “hidden transcripts” to describe the underlying feelings of the oppressed towards the oppressor which are communicated through songs, gossip, jokes, etc
  14. 14. In this era, with the internet, we are exposed to DIGITAL hidden transcripts via blogs, discussion boards, social network sites, etc</li></ul>Do you really think the Internet is “private”?<br />When a student ‘flames’ his teacher on his personal blog, what is his motive?<br />How does this affect the teacher?<br />
  15. 15. <ul><li>The Internet, being a powerful tool, has allowed students to adopt identities which are different from their assigned identities by the organization i.e. school
  16. 16. A conversation is private and transitory, but anything online is digitally recorded and open to reproduction, distribution and editing. It is this “openness” of the Internet that gives digital hidden transcripts its power
  17. 17. Blogs and other similar online tools enable individuals to say what they want because it’s their space</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>“It’s these ambiguities [of fiction melded with fact] that make blogs so wonderfully dangerous, risky, charming.” (Marck, 2006)
  18. 18. Students of Net Generation are more technologically savvy than their teachers and they are more willing to take risks online too.
  19. 19. Teachers have a choice to accept these digital hidden transcripts as feedback or reject them as criticisms.</li></li></ul><li>A Form of Power-Play<br />Power-play can be viewed as a negotiation<br /><ul><li> a meditational strategy that students use to negotiate the conventions in the classroom
  20. 20. motivated by uncertainty and often demonstrative
  21. 21. it can lead to behaviours that oppose teacher's expectations</li></ul>When teacher are aware of the symptoms, they can monitor these misbehaviors and adapt their communication practices accordingly<br />
  22. 22. But…<br />Are teachers reflective enough to take it as a form of reviewing their practices?<br />View the video clip and put yourself in her shoes. Can you accept it? What will be your follow-up actions?<br />Image taken from http://www.smh.com.au/news/parenting/dealing-with-others-kids/2007/09/11/1189276717970.html<br />
  23. 23. OR<br />Do teachers use this ‘power play’ as a form of authority stand in the classroom?<br />View<br />Cruel Singaporean Teacher?<br />
  24. 24. Computer-mediated communication (CMC)<br />“The process by which people create, exchange, and perceive information using networked telecommunications systems that facilitate encoding, transmitting, and decoding messages”<br />Synchronous (real-time)<br />Asynchronous (delayed time)<br />
  25. 25. The Use of CMC<br />Allows people to foster “virtual communities” characterized by intimacy, solidarity and communal accountability<br />Increases spontaneous opportunities for both friendly connections and critical conversations<br />
  26. 26. Personal Comment: <br />From the example, we can see that when people use online discussions to talk about controversial issues – negative or positive, they too will not be spared from criticisms from the online community<br />
  27. 27. Dialogic resistance<br />Involves a pedagogy of resistance as a communication <br />Invites “rapprochement narratives” based on the intersubjective processes of communal dialogue<br />Conduces self-reflection where educators ask themselves: Why, how and for what purposes do individuals seeks to challenge institutional practices and their authorities?<br />
  28. 28. Personal Comment:<br />Basically, this implies that learners are making use of social media to compose their own “narratives” of certain issues they faced in school. However, a passing comment can lead to critical discussions among the readers as they give their different points of view, such as the previous example in Stomp. The implication for teachers then would be whether they are able to respond to public criticism in a manner reflective of their roles as reflective practitioners.<br />
  29. 29. What do you think after hearing so much? Please tell us your views and find the truth for us. <br />I will now hand you over to NADZ, who will lead you from here<br />Hey guys, I believe that my friends would have shared with you about the three concepts. <br />Thank you, D2!<br />I will bring them back to the blog and ask them for their views on these issues. <br />
