Join Kevin Kelly for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating guidelines for learning with social media in your class, part of Social Media in the Classroom.
- Depending on your institution,…there may be a policy or a set of guidelines…related to using social media.…Those policies and guidelines are usually there…for legal reasons, and I won't go into those in this course.…I'm more interested in guidelines for learning reasons.…In the next video, I'll talk about…helping students manage their identity,…which could be considered a digital literacy skill…for today's students.…Some of the guidelines I'll suggest in this video…also support student digital literacy…as well as effective learning through social media.…
Reddit is a website for entertainment,…news and social networking.…Community members can submit content…through posts and links, so they created guidelines…to make it a safe and friendly place to share.…I love their first rule of reddiquette:…"Remember the human."…There's someone on the other end of the computer screen.…That's followed by, "Adhere to the same standards…"of behavior online that you follow in real life."…That's good stuff.…
