  • The term Social Media refers to the use of web-based and mobile technologies to turn communication into an interactive dialogue.\n
  • http://www.c4lpt.co.uk/blog/2011/09/12/social-learning-doesnt-mean-what-you-think-it-does/\n\nfocus on the learning as opposed to the media - \nJane Hart \n
  • “Business structures founded on command and control, automation and process are giving way to structures that are less hierarchical and more dynamic, designed to engage people’s hearts and minds to make a difference in the world. ” Jane Hart, Founder and CEO of the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies, and a Social Workplace Consultant.  \nIt needs to move from a “Command and Control” approach to one that I call “Encourage and Engage”.\nthe roles of the admin, teacher, and student are changing as result. \n

  • this is a game changer. changing the way our brains work. \nthe information is there for us. encourage learners to find to go find it. immediate access. Cathy Davidson - Now You See It\n
  • Today’s learners are eager to share\n\nInitial trepidations: \n-I dont have the time\n-No one wants to hear what I have to say \n-What if someone I work with reads the group, not Big Brother\n\n
  • 3. Happy to share what she knows\nCC-the only valid solutions are in house; dont let people create content! they might be incorrect! people might abuse the system! \nEE- we can't possibly create everything for everyone; usable content is preferred to sophisticated content; let's tap into the growing phenomenon of sharing! help and enable this process - content is moderated by the group, not Big Brother\nis!? \n\n
  • \n
  • Social learning element: Encourages curation of content for dissemination of information\n
  • So let’s look at a typical networks - what’s influencing teachers and administrators in their practice?\nThese are all great sources, and no one is suggesting that we forgo those relationships for the use of social media alone. \nSo this is what a new “room” might look like. Examine the influences. \n
  • 5. Learns best with and from others\nCC- we'll "force" social learning can occur under our watch only\nEE - we can't force social learning; we can only provide a framework where conversations can happen; social learning happens informally, anytime anywehre; encourage informal mentoring to exchange knowledge and skills\n\nInnovative teaching/learning processes are most often characterised by group exercises, teamwork or individual study. The emphasis is on learning rather than teaching. Exercises in this context mostly take the form of experimental research projects designed to maintain students' curiosity, and also providing long-term motivation to search for solutions independently.\n
  • David Weisenberg\nshare google docs story -K-3 reading conference\n
  • So where does it start? The changing role of administrators- we need to assume the “encourage and engage” mode”\nWe need to model for our teachers and students the use of these tools.\n
  • Our students are building digital footprints and we have to help make sure they’re positive. It’s happening NOW. Stop worrying about 5-10 yrs from now. We need to help our kids NOW. \nHow many of you have Googled yourself? You want to make sure what’s coming up on that search is what you want to define you. We have to model this.\n\n

  • So here are some of the tools we have used in a variety of ways to promote the encourage “and engage” mode - sharing some of the tools that have helped our shifting our roles\nSocial Media is: free, connected, reflective, available\n
  • What does this journey look like? \n organizational learning- social learning \n enhance communications\n strengthen school-community relationships\n facilitate PD opportunities\n innovative learning \n build powerful PLNs \n
  • Modeling for my teachers - here is the effect of my organizational efficiency - the social media tools listed there \nstarted simply- daily update emails; moved to the wiki where we house everything- think about simple communications ; amped up communication with parents \nETC this year - share story of reading conference work \nmeeting info summaries to avoid meetings\n\n
  • the shifting role of the teacher\n“We are all learners. We are all teachers.” - Prensky Elementary school teacher: "The function of the teacher as a leader (often 'omnipotent') is being replaced by a new role as companion and partner in the acquisition of knowledge.\n
  • Smart worker thrives on autonomy - DRIVE - FedEx Days\norganized the whole day through social media\nteachers used feedback forms\nsaw the move from consumer of info to producer and sharer - I now have teachers blogging and putting their ideas out there for others to see\n\n2 – In Social Business: Revolution or Differentiator? Seth Gottlieb picks up on Deb Lavoy’s article (curated in Part 1) and makes the following observation – which I think is just as relevant for social learning.\n“Anything social is about people and their connections. To be authentic in social business, your business has revolve around people. You can’t fake it. You can’t talk about people as “resources” and then turn around expect them to feel like they are members of a community. Treat someone like a resource and he will behave like a resource. He will not invest his personal identity to advocate for an organization. He will save his personality and creativity for whatever community treats him like a person. That may include friendships he has formed at work but not to the organization itself.”\n\n
  • Innovative teaching and learning- I’m not saying using these tools are going to make your classrooms innovative. But they can add value that was unavailable before. We look to the 4Cs when deciding choices to involve students in social media use.\n\n\nInnovative teaching: changing role of teacher; can it be adapted to other settings? widespread opportunity to access info; provides a new element than offered with current practic; \n

  • authentic voices\nblogs - advantage over newsletters, two-way communications, archives, etc.\nstudent writing strengths through blogs\nsharing through video \nnotices to parents and alerts- via facebook and twitter\nforms to parents, teachers, students\ntext alerts to parents using google docs\nEdmodo\nteacher blogs -kids can update, parents can see what we’re doing, clear communication, embedded calendars, links to \n
  • so many tools, make it meaningful for learning\n

  • social contributions , collective action \n
  • 4 scaffolding stages to mastering the connected world: share, cooperate (connect), collaborate, collective action\nHere Comes Everybody Cognitive Surplus\n
  • the unknown is scary, but we need to lead the way in modeling lead learning for our schools. show them you’re not afraid to create and try new things, and share your ideas. \n
