Social Learning through Conversations in Social Media

Posted: November 21, 2012 in Education, Social Media, Stimulus

During some recent online reading I came across this image in a post on Pam O’Briens Blog titled Social Learning. The first thing that got my attention was the detail of the categorisation that was relevant in the image, then as I read her post I was intrigued by the potential for Social Learning. Now like all educators I am aware of the implications and risks of the oversaturated and inexperienced use of social mediums, but isn’t that the role of educators. That is, to inform others of how to use technologies creatively, yet with recognition of the risks that are involved. I am in the process of writing a post I will title ‘Community of Inquiry in the Classroom’ where I will briefly examine a pedagogical approach I frequently use in my educational spaces.

Anyway, have a read of Pam O’Briens blog post and think about how you could use social media to create educational conversations.
