Join Kevin Kelly for an in-depth discussion in this video Looking at social media in the classroom, part of Social Media in the Classroom.
- In this chapter, we'll look at ways…to use social media inside the classroom.…If you're breaking new ground at your institution,…or even if you're not, have a discussion…with your students about what you want to do.…For each activity, define the goals,…provide clear instructions for the activity,…share details related to specific technologies…such as Twitter hashtags,…and remind students what you expect…in terms of their behavior.…So, let's look at what takes place…in different classroom settings.…
There might be some content review…such as a demonstration, presentation, or lecture…by you, your students, a guest speaker.…You might have a recorded video clip…or audio clip that they watch or listen to.…You might have them read or review an article,…a chapter, or a case study.…For content review, social media can act as a layer on top…rather than an alternative activity on the side.…Basically, it can happen at the same time…as the normal content review takes place in the classroom.…
In this chapter, I'll describe a couple ways to do this…
- Moving from social networking to "social netlearning"
- Balancing social media with in-class activities
- Creating social media guidelines
- Using Twitter for polls
- Using Facebook for student-generated test questions
- Connecting to real-world scenarios and people
