Increasingly, educators are acknowledging and welcoming the relative advantages of social media into the teaching and learning process.

Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy in the 21st Century Classroom

From creating school Facebook pages to connecting students with experts via Twitter, social media has taken root as a legitimate classroom learning and communication tool. The highly linguistic nature of social media allows us to create and consume ideas and information unlike ever before. Much attention has been given to composing an articulate blog post and condensing our messages to 140 characters or less. However, effective use of this 21st century technology requires that we not only become proficient in textual communication, but also in our ability to express ourselves and interpret others' ideas through visual literacy.

SOCIAL MEDIA EXPERIMENT. Resist the colour of Twitter?

Within the business and education sectors, some people prefer to maintain a ‘professional’ social network for work-related communication and collaboration, while maintaining a ‘personal’ social network to communicate and share with family and friends.

Resist the colour of Twitter?

Others prefer to merge or integrate their professional and personal lives as a single ‘connected’ network. Yet in my experience, rather a lot more hardly make use of the affordances of technologies, and prefer to remain back in the 20th century. While I understand this when the choice is actively made based on knowledge of social media, I have run out of excuses to justify this position for educators at any time. In a technology-driven society, things change at a faster rate than ever before in history. We need to be connected. Do we really need connected educators?

Who educators connect with is a very critical consideration. A Quiet [Twitter] Protest “Don’t you think Findikli Stairs are just amazing? EricTTung: Does getting #SocialMedia posts...

State of Australian Social Media 2012 (INFOGRAPHIC) The Teacher's Guide to Social Media. Education is a two-way street — oftentimes, those who teach could stand to learn a few things as well.

The Teacher's Guide to Social Media

Social media, for one, is largely dominated by Generation Y. We invented it, we grew up with it and we know it like the back of our keyboard-ready hands. In some schools, tablets and social networks are becoming primary classroom tools. Even digitally versed teachers need to evolve with the language of their increasingly connected students. Don't sweat it. Are you an educator? 1. We've published plenty of horror stories about teachers who've posted NSFW content on their social profiles and have been summarily punished (see: the Aurora, Colo. teacher who tweeted half-naked photos of herself and joked about using drugs on school property). Whatever (legal things) you choose to do outside school is your business — just be sure to not give your colleagues (and students) a front-row seat. 2. Social Media in Australia Infographic.

The canonical correla-tion coefficient is calculated for each of the six functions.Because of scaling created by the standardized weights inthe equations calculating the latent variables, the value of this coefficient can only range between 0 and 1 and there-fore is analogous to the statistic in a regression analysis.Consequently, the squared canonical correlation ) like in regression represents the proportion of the varianceshared between the two latent variables.
