Social Learning, Social Media – Brothers in Arms

eLearning 24-7

Is it me or does it seem that most vendors in the LMS/LCMS market still believe that with some smoke and mirrors, you won’t realize that social media actually must be integrated into social learning for it to exist? Or do they just drop the word, “social media&# , and rather say, “social learning and web 2.0″? See, it is social learning. expo clearly shows and some argue that social media some grew up within the web 2.0

There’s a lot of conversation about social media.

Not only is social media good for you, it’s good for your learners. It makes sense to blend your elearning courses with social media because you teach your learners to create their own learning network.

MOOCs are different from all other forms of training in that they can enable social interaction and peer learning across entire organizations, even if those organizations have employees located around the globe.

Shocks to the system

Learning with 'e's

When the social web emerged sometime at the turn of the century, a new array of opportunities appeared for the creation of dynamic, collaborative and sociable learning environments - we now know it as social media. Repurposing and remixing, mashups and aggregations of content became commonplace, and collaborative, community based spaces were populated with content that was ever shifting, never completed.

The changing Web

Learning with 'e's

Social media - often referred to as Web 2.0 , or the participatory Web - is shaping up to be one of the most important tool sets available to support the promotion of change in education. Almost everyone, it seems, is using some element of social media in the planning, development, delivery, management or evaluation of teaching and learning. Debate focuses on whether the emerging social applications constitute a sea change or revolution in the Web (cf.

And the scary part of "cherry picking" ideas and creating mash-ups from these were driven home once again. casual conversations, on social networking sites, during water cooler gossips, in one-on-one conversations with friends.We de-contextualize snippets of conversations, texts, dialogues heard, reassemble the various bits and pieces, add our thoughts and pass on the new "mash-up" till it has lost all resemblance to the source.

My e-learning philosophy

I first started work as a technician in media and technology back in 1976 when things were a lot less sophisticated than they are now.

Remix culture and education

Learning with 'e's

Sometimes several works are combined or 'mashed up' to create new versions. In the digital age, where many have access to the participatory web such as social media, it is easier than ever to remix and mashup content. In my last blog post I illustrated a new model of digital literacies in the context of age of remix. Since then, several have asked me what I mean by remix culture, and how it applies to education.

The digital environment generated a number of opportunities to participate in a sophisticated and goal oriented social, civic and leisure activities when online.

Computers, Learning Professionals, and their Roles in Curation

The Learning Circuits

The definition of curator has expanded in recent years, largely in line with the expansion of social media technologies. In the age of facebook shares/likes, Twitter retweets, and other social media sharing tools. Let's back up a second though; perhaps saying the definition of curator has expanded isn't accurate, as it implies expanding a single definition to include a broader group.

Content as a Service

Xyleme

As instructional designers, we create our learning products, package them up with all the content and media, wish them well, and ship them off to the LMS’s – never to be seen again. Delivery of learning via the LMS is still, and will continue to be, appropriate for some learning environments, but it is not the whole of learning, and is increasingly out of step with the changing tastes and preferences driven by a workforce armed with mobile devices and versant in social media.

Social Media…outside, inside, upside down

Janet Clarey

An excellent post from Leigh Blackall at Learn Online , which includes a break down of the three well- established learning theories (which, as we know, inform our instructional design), is built around the premise that social media is a product of social constructivism yet is being (mis)adopted into behaviorist practices. He argues that social media cannot be used inside behaviorist media like the LMS or LCMS). Is an LMS/LCMS behaviorist media?
