How to benefit from social media
- in your studies or otherwise
There is something in the air, and it is nothing less than the digital artifacts of over one billion people and computers networked together collectively producing over 2,000 gigabytes of new information per second.
While most of our classrooms were built under the assumption that information is scarce and hard to find, nearly the entire body of human knowledge now flows through and around these rooms in one form or another, ready to be accessed by laptops, cellphones, and iPods. Classrooms built to re-enforce the top-down authoritative knowledge of the teacher are now enveloped by a cloud of ubiquitous digital information where knowledge is made, not found, and authority is continuously negotiated through discussion and participation.

Let's start by questioning the school
a little bit
Let's talk about LOVE
Sorry, I meant...
Social media
and to connect it
all to school
as the collaboration tool
(because almost all learning

Personal Learning Environment/

Let's se what Harold Jarche has to say about this:

Here are some suggestions for training organizations as they shift to supporting the networked workplace. Because change begins at the individual level, these recommendations are for each of us:

1. Get online and be an active and continuous learner.
2. Be a lurker and listen to what others are saying
3. Communicate what you observe.
4. Continuously collect feedback, not just after formal training. 5. Make it easy to share information by simplifying, synthesizing and finding patterns.
6. Use networks as research tools.
7. Identify learning skills, develop them in yourself and pass them on to others.
Get a Google account!
(or Zoho)
and start using the tools
Or get someone to setup
And build a Personal Learning Environment that suites YOU and YOUR needs and personality!
So let's get more practical:
PS. There is an app for that!
My recommendations:
But remember:
don't let social media make you shallow"
for you, once it's ready
”Academia is to knowledge what prostitution is to love; close enough on the surface… but not exactly the same thing.”
- Nassim Taleb
Knowledge is MADE,
Join a Community of Practice
Communities of practice (CoP) are groups of people who share a passion for something that they do, and who interact regularly to learn how to do it better.
