Social Learning - The literacy that cannot be ignored

2,513 views

Published on

My presentation from the Northern Grid Conference 2012. I put the case for the teaching of social media skills in schools from the earliest age as essential literacy skills. The consequences of not doing so are that students may enter the world ill-equipped to communicate effectively or worse, in danger of damaging their reputations or inadvertantly committing criminal acts.
