facilitating vision

"While many professors and administrators assume smartphones are only tools for affluent student populations, studies reveal that lower socio-economic groups are among the most likely to purchase a smartphone, as it offers cost-saving access to a bundle of media services including voice, sms(texting), and internet."
(Smith, 2011)
"It is time to shift our mindsets away from the notion that technology provides a supplemental teaching tool and assume, as with other professions, that technology is essential to successful performance outcomes (i.e student learning). To put it simply, effective teaching requires effective technology use."
(Ertmer & Ottenbreit-Leftwich, 2010)
Social Learning -
Facebook CoP?
100% of students were stimulated to work independently!

Short Film
"Learning is predominantly social and experiential."
(Wenger, 1998)
New ways of working
through Communities of Practice

Online tools for learning and social media changed the way we teach completely. Instant communication with all the learners not only solving attendance problems, but encouraging learners to read, practise and not be left behind the others in the group.

Learners who are shy have a chance to express their queries. Tutors get an insight into what needs to be covered, what gaps to plug.

Something to Ponder...
“Social media transforms teaching from static delivery of content to an ever-changing practice. The only way to learn this is through experience. Participating with emerging technologies outside your classroom is the best way to see the array of possibilities they hold.”
(Pacansky-Brock, 2013, p.46)

...facilitating small changes within teachers’ own context appears to be an effective long-term strategy for impacting teacher practice in big ways.”
(Ertmer & Ottenbreit-Leftwich, 2010, p.277)
Bennett, E.J. (2012) Learning from the early adopters: Web 2.0 tools, pedagogic practices and the development of the digital practitioner (n.p)

"Web 2.0 is becoming the preferred
environment for communication,
collaboration and sharing, especially among youth population".
Tarik and Karim (2012)

Technology = "a hook that tapped into students' existing visual and technological literacies".
(Kajder, 2004)
Community facilitated through Yammer
The Protagonists
"Competition has intensified for reading as a source of story. Students are captivated instead by the Internet, TV, film, and video games."
Learners as directors, artists, screenwriters, and designers.
