Innovating social media in the classroom

  1. 1. Innovating Social Media in the Classroom Rachele Kanigel Institute for Education in International Media (ieiMedia) San Francisco State University rkanigel@ieimedia.com
  2. 2. What is ieiMedia? Partners with educational institutions around the world to co-sponsor media study-abroad and internship programs for college students and young professionals Programs in Italy, France, Northern Ireland and Turkey New program for 2013: Israel Programs in Russia, China and Spain under development for 2013 and 2014
  3. 3. ieiMedia programs Students study a range of media skills – videojournalism, photography, writing for the web, international reporting, magazine writing – as well as the local language and culture Students report on the community (sometimes with the help of local students as interpreters) Students create a publication – a multimedia website, print or digital magazine, and/or a book – about the community
  4. 4. Challenges of using social mediaabroad Language barriers – Many people in the communities we cover don’t speak English and generally our students don’t speak enough of the local language to be able to tweet in it Technology – We often don’t have the access to smartphones and wifi that we’re used to in the U.S.; data plans abroad can be prohibitively expensive and Internet access can be spotty Cultural differences – In some of the communities we cover social media are far less prevalent
  5. 5. How we use social mediaFacebook groupieiMedia students come from all over the U.S. and Canadaand from other parts of the world; they first connect overFacebook. Students and faculty use the group to: Introduce themselves Share questions, tips and concerns Share information Arrange travel plans
  6. 6. Twitter Before the program we use Twitter to announce we are coming and seek story ideas
  7. 7. TwitterDuring the program we use Twitter to promote newcontent on our website and announce ieiMedia events
  8. 8. Flickr and Vimeo Students contribute to a Flickr account for the project where they share their photos Students post videos on Vimeo that link back to the project website
  9. 9. Blogging In some of our programs students blog We encourage students to treat blogging as a journalistic tool – a way to report on and engage with the community These blogs may be vignettes about their experiences, mini profiles of people they encounter, ruminations on cross-cultural encounters they have Some students also create personal blogs about their study-abroad experiences
  10. 10. Tumblr In Perpignan 2011 students created individual tumblr blogs to share their photos, blogs posts, videos and stories, (many of which were also posted on the class multimedia website) These personal blogs gave them the chance to share their experiences with friends and family back home as well as the community they’re covering and potential employers
