  • Michael KoettingSocial Learning: Building the Knowledge Network
  • 21 years oldBusiness Honors / Finance student in my third year at The University of Texas here in AustinI also run a company called Hoot.Me with some of my classmates The idea came about when I was stuck on calculus one night
  • Here’s what the main page looks likeTrending study sessionsMy classes
  • Once you enter study session this is what it looks like
  • Since this is a BYOT panel, I’ve created a link
  • When viewing technology in education, this is how we have historically thought about it
  • Early education technologies focused on quality
  • We got the smart board, which was a really innovative tool designed to make it easier for teachers to communicate with their class
  • Essentially, the smart board was a mega phone designed to improve one to many communication
  • Problem because Smart Board didn’t solve the information network problem. Didn’t do anything to organize the smart board material Although the teacher was better communicating with students, the students were still copying smart board lectures onto their pen and paper notebooksNot accessible later
  • Facebook and Twitter came along and Teacher still viewed it as low quality information = tension between teacher tech and student tech, which was a self fulfilling prophecyBanned from classroomYet now the students had a voice that was on a different channel than traditional EdTech
  • Teachers on one channel and students on another
  • Evolved into the teacher being drowned out in the noise when it came to technology
  • Smart board’s unfortunately become glorified white boards.
  • This was the perception we were left with
  • We told students to power down in class
  • Yet 91% of students access Facebook on a daily bases
  • Excess capacity
  • Has to be a way of achieving this
  • What social network looks likeBut realize that in places of overlap, where we get degree centrality, reasonable segmentation arisesMost degree centrality occurs around schools and campuses, which makes senseSo we get the knowledge networkBenefit is that if US History class is discussing the three causes of the Civil War, the student now has relevancy
  • Classroom proxy is not new, but most people dodge the privacy issue by making student anonymous = huge moral hazard
  • Noise is good b/c law of large numbersThis leads to personalized learning at scale
  • Students can meet Mr. JP online and when they do, 400 messages can cross our lines. My professors beg for 10 instances of participationStephanye was Googling on orbitals, but it wasn’t in the context of her class
  • Smart board was for teacher and Evernote was for individual….Hoot bridges gap
