Transcript of How to use social media tools as part of a blended solution

How many social networking tools do you use? How to use social networking (of the Facebook, MySpace variety) within the context of a blended solution. How many social networking tools are you aware of,even if you don't use them yourself? You will probably be surprised at how many social networking tools there are... Every year, the Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies (C4LPT) produces a list of the Top 100 Tools for Learning. What do you think are the current top three? The answer is: 1. 2. 3. So how do we define social networking tools? They support the co-creation of content, as well as the connection, collaboration and communication of individuals.

Intra-organisational learning 5. Accidental and serendipitous learning Examples of social media tools used in formal structured learning: Using a social bookmarking tool to build a collaborative library Using free blogging websites Wordpress

The SharePoint application enables employees to upload blogs, wiki’s, videos and on line communities. Thomson Reuters has introduced Yammer, the micro-sharing service that enables employees to connect and share information across global sites. Questions: 1. Is it true that everyone is already engaged with social media? And if not, can we still use these tools successfully in blended solutions? 2. Does all this sharing - blogging / Twittering etc - mean TOO MUCH information? How do we sort the wheat from the chaff, work out what is important and what is just white noise? 3. Can we meaningfully measure the success of
social media tools in learning?
