Published on

Social media has revolutionized the way we live, but how can we leverage it for learning?

In 2013 59.2% of nearly 8,000 higher education participants in a Babson Survey Research Group and Pearson survey agreed “the interactive nature of online and mobile technologies can create better learning environments.” Additionally, 41% currently use social media in their classrooms. However, 56% of that same population are concerned that online and mobile technologies are “more distracting than helpful to students.”

Given this dynamic, there exists both uncertainty and opportunity with regard to using social media to power your pedagogy. You have an array of options from which to choose: blogs, Facebook, Google, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and YouTube (and many others) can enhance engagement and increase interaction in your classes. But having a tool and knowing how to use it are different experiences altogether.

Sharing seven strategies for curating and creating curriculum within the context of laws and cultural customs this paper presents best practices and case studies you can use to prepare your pedagogy, socially. This presentation was created for and delivered on Tuesday, February 24, 2015 at the Global Education Forum in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
