Reflections on Twitter and social networking

Clark Quinn

I’ve been using Twitter for a number of weeks now, and that, combined with several recent social networking activities prompted this reflection.  Twitter is a different story; described as micro-blogging, it’s more immediate, more a pointer.  And Ning’s quite interesting  too.  However, they’re beginning to turn into one big Ning mass that I have trouble differentiating.  It’s just having to remember to go to all these different places.  I suspect I need to spend more time getting the notifications right.

Join the distributed conversation on Twitter/your blog/wherever: #LASI13 While MOOCs are sucking all of the oxygen out of the educational technology conversation, significant trends are developing under the radar. One of the most significant trends is around learning analytics. Next week, we ( SoLAR , IEDMS and others) are organizing a Learning Analytics Summer Institute (LASI). call for attendance was held earlier this year and the event was/is (massively) oversubscribed. We were only able to accept 100 attendees due to space and cost constraints.

Keep your social media in perpetual Beta

Learning and Working on the Web

Ning started by giving out spaces for free and there were many other variations on that theme. Twitter is where you can feel the pulse of the action and are able to follow the most conversations. Tweet When I started blogging, it was one of the few options to share ideas on the Net. There were some utilities like Quicktopic that let you easily make posts and of course we had listservs, bulletin boards and discussions forums that had been around for much longer. After blogs, the next big phenomena were social networks. LinkedIn is just a place where I hang my hat. Be flexible.

Seven Things I Learned This Year

Tony Karrer

Twitter is Much Better than I Thought for Learning I used to say during presentations that I wasn’t quite sure about twitter as a learning tool. During 2010, I’ve been ramping up my use of twitter as a learning tool. I’ve had to find ways to filter the flow and figure out when/how to reach out. It was definitely helpful to spend time going through Twitter for Learning – 55 Great Articles. 2. And every year I use this as a Big Question – see: Learning 2010. A lot of it is thinking through where my thinking has changed over the course of the year. for more on this. 7.

How our learning theories shape how we use technology for learning

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

For me it is obvious that Twitter can be an important learning instrument but if see you learning as acquiring new knowledge it is less obvious. ''T witter is not about learning. blogged about the difference before in: twittering= learning ? For instance, we use Ning, a social network for our learning trajectories whereas we could use a learning management system (LMS). Lesson?

I want to facilitate online discussions but how do I choose the right platform?

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

You make an easy choice and open a ning or groupsite. Option 3: Your own social network platform like Ning , group site , grou.ps , Socialgo , collectivex , MINDZ. Ning for instance doesnot have an easy file sharing possibility and groupsite does. It is free (with ads), you do not have to install anything, it is easy to manage, so you're ready in a few minutes.
