Managing the 'Online Self' - HeLF 2013


Published on

I was invited to give a 10 min 'lightning presentation' at the Heads of eLearning Forum (HeLF) hosted by my uni in 2013. I decided to showcase the work we were doing to raise the awareness of online identity and how that could affect students and SSU regulations.

  1. 1. Managing the ‘Online Self’ Samantha Moss Personal Learning Technologist ? @samwisefox 12th June 2013 Hobby Work
  2. 2. Awesome network: 24/7 mobile access to key movers and shakers in my fields of interest: – – – – – – – – – Tech Enhanced Learning Teaching & Learning Practices Social Media Employability Tech specific (Moodle/Mahara/Turnitin etc) Geek Stuffs Archery Dance/Performing Arts Current Affairs (FOMO!!!)
  3. 3. My PLN curation process: 1 • I ‘follow’ many knowledgeable people and businesses in my field of interest 2 • I filter their ‘feeds’ and ‘streams’ using keywords & lists and ‘magazine’ tools 3 • I use sites to ‘bookmark’ the useful bits (articles, links, images, video etc) 4 • I then collate them into my own webpage/curation tool and share/publish back to PLN Thanks Joyce Seitzinger! (@catspyjamasnz)
  4. 4. Blog Space to record thoughts and links to resources that can help me Twitter Pinterest Connect with and follow key stakeholders & those with similar needs/experiences Bookmarking images and video Sam’s PLN Academia.Edu Collate RSS feeds and streams from blogs and news articles Network & Profile platform Delicious Bookmarking online articles
  5. 5. The six dimensions of Social Media-literate leadership
  6. 6. Staff & Student Awareness 1. How do we engage our staff so that they can see the benefits of social media? – Workshops, news stories & Solent events 2. How do we get students to use Social Media to ensure that they are ‘Employability Aware’? – In-class presentations & assessment 3. How can we help staff & students to recognise that their digital skills are actually DESIRED SKILLS and should be celebrated/promoted? – Communities of Practice?
  7. 7. Risks & considerations What does your institution’s Plagiarism/Collusion regs say? – collusion - where the student/s knowingly or negligently allows their work to be viewed by another student, in any form, and this work is then subsequently incorporated in, or represented as, the work of another student Can it be ‘locked down’? Who owns your work?
  8. 8. Risks & considerations Your ‘online self’ is an extension of your real self – what do you want the world to see? Are you restricted by marketing policy? Should we alert people to their errors?
  9. 9. Managing Expectations..? • Instant responses to messages? • Refusal to ‘sign-up’ – should they be forced? • Refusal to explore new media? • “You will be GOOGLED”!
  10. 10. So… 1. What’s the innovation? Institutional shift to improve digital literacy skills (staff & students) 2. What’s the impact? Improved Employability, Personal/Career Dev, Conversations, innovative assessments, reduced fear of ‘new tech’, lower tech ‘hump’, more lecturers coming to us with ideas 3. What are the implications? Solent’s Regs (assessment/marketing), individual/institution reputation, IPR/Ownership, data storage, All a ‘Work In Progress’
