VIDEO | Facebook - The Musical How Should Social Media Be Taught in Schools? Before we ask how, I think we should address why social media should be taught in schools. Students may appear to be comfortable using social media, but don’t assume that they know how to use it appropriately in a classroom setting. Educators Baiyun Chen and Thomas Bryer from the University of Central Florida conducted research on instructional strategies for social media last year, and they pointed out that, “one of the common themes in previous research is that students use social media for personal reasons, but rarely for educational or learning purposes.” With this in mind, teaching students how to appropriately use social media becomes not just a good idea; it becomes a school’s responsibility. The Gift of Social Learning Social media can provide two things that are critical for student engagement in a literate environment: audience and purpose. Audience refers to those who will see what students create and share. Purpose is the reason students are doing the work.

Identité numérique, quels enjeux pour l'école ? Alors qu'Internet est en passe de devenir le loisir préféré des jeunes devant la télévision [ 1 ], les rapports sur la cybercriminalité mettant en garde contre les dangers du web 2.0 et l'utilisation frauduleuse des données personnelles se multiplient. Ce double constat amène à penser qu'il est plus que jamais nécessaire d'éduquer les jeunes à Internet et d’aborder avec eux la question de l'identité numérique - ce qui n’est pas chose aisée. En effet, cette question nous renvoie à nos pratiques, nos jugements, nos positionnements intellectuels et moraux (voire juridiques) qui sont généralement différents de ceux des élèves. Pour schématiser : d'un côté, l'adulte enseignant qui, interloqué, se demande comment « ils » peuvent s'afficher ainsi sur Internet, comment « ils » peuvent ne pas se rendre compte des dangers qui les guettent, de l'autre, des adolescents qui pensent que, s'ils ne s'affichent pas, ils n'existent pas et que demain est un autre jour ...

Web Safety | Think Before You Post This is really the golden rule of online communication. Online communication is instant, wide-reaching and difficult to retract, so you need to be sure you want it out there before you put it out there. A couple of seconds re-reading your post, thinking about the photo, or running the worst-case scenario through your head can save you a lot of real-life pain. The only person you can trust to keep your private photos private is you. Once you send them to someone else, they're out of your control and you're relying on the discretion and good judgment of other people to stop them ending up on every phone at school or on a public site. If you don't want everyone to know about it, don't post it. Things to Think About Before You Post Before you hit Send or Upload or Post, stop for a minute and consider the following: Think: If you wouldn't say it to someone's face, don't post it on their wall. Think: Emoticons are everywhere for a reason. Picture This... The bus ride into uni is long and boring.

SHORT FILM | Facebook Manners and You (instructional films 50s) C’est dans un décor 60s qu’Alice se connecte à Facebook, le générateur électrique d’amis ("the electric friendship generator") pour découvrir que son chéri Timmy Gordon fricotte à point d’heure avec une dénommée Donna Whitehouse. Timmy et Alice vont tour à tour enfreindre 5 règles de l’étiquette Facebook. Parodie des films éducatifs ("instructional films") des années 50 à 70, "Facebook Manners and You" pourra aussi donner lieu à une interprétation des anachronismes technologiques mis en scène dans ce film. Un film à ne pas louper qui n’en est plus à sa première récompense.

Overcoming Hurdles to Social Media in Education (EDUCAUSE Review Key Takeaways According to a recent study, 100 percent of colleges and universities surveyed use social media, but instructors use it far less for teaching than they do for personal or professional reasons. Of those who use social media for instruction, most use video in the classroom and many use blogs and wikis. Concerns about cheating and privacy top the list of barriers to adoption, though these concerns — like many of the others cited — are decreasing as time passes and social media becomes more prevalent. Social media has made its way into higher education. A 2010-2011 study of social media adoption by the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth analyzed the most recent trending of social media use among four-year accredited institutions in the U.S. and found that 100 percent of the colleges and universities studied are using it.1 Here, I'll discuss the findings from our recent survey at Pearson Learning Solutions, which highlighted faculty concerns about social media.

ILLUSTRATIONS | Watch Facebook Take Over The World (Polish cartoonist) What if Facebook took over the world -- even more than it already has? What if the almighty social networking site existed in the age of M.C. Escher or Salvador Dali, and served as their inspirations? What if that damn website was watching you watching it watch you? For an eerily beautiful answer to all of the questions above, we highly recommend checking the dark illustrations of Pawel Kuczynski. The artist, born in Szczecin, Poland, creates surreal satires that, gorgeous as they may be, strike a little too close to home for our liking. The depictions, of course, comment on our society's growing obsession with Mark Zuckerberg's brainchild, which has now become a crucial aspect of so many of our lives. "Some people say, that my works are surrealist drawings," Kuczynski explained in an email to The Huffington Post. h/t DesignTaxi

ABC para construir tu marca personal El poder del personal branding está en la capacidad que tengamos de influir positivamente en otros. Por Geizel Torres Aristóteles Onassis llegó a Argentina con 17 años, cuando su familia lo había perdido todo durante la guerra tur­co-griega en 1923. Gracias a la buena formación que recibió de sus padres, hablaba cuatro idiomas, y eso le ayu­dó a conseguir trabajo con facilidad. Por las noches devoraba libros de finanzas y sus primeros salarios los invirtió en la compra de un costoso traje de vestir. Tenía en carisma lo que le faltaba de guapo, y a punta de “apariencia” y de espiar algunas conversaciones telefónicas entre empresarios, Onassis empezó a codearse con la crema y nata de la sociedad argentina. “El griego de oro” llegó a ser el hombre más rico del mundo para mediados del siglo pasado, su ape­llido fue uno de los más reconoci­dos y hasta venerados de su época. “Los tiempos han cambiado mucho y ya los profesionales no se quedan 30 años en una misma em­presa, como pasaba antes.

POSTER | Social media explained with humour The poster below appeals to social networkers' self-mockery ;-) By kalokwong1 - on, a fun sharing community Let's decode the reasons why the author of the poster has chosen each explanation : can you answer the following questions ? Twitter : "I'm eating bacon" How long are the messages displayed on Twitter ? Fbook : "I like bacon" ... hmmm. LinkedIn : "I have skills including eating bacon" If you don't know this network, check what linkedin is... and you'll get the answer ! Foursquare : "This is where I eat bacon" Which is the key-word ? YouTube : "Watch me eat my bacon" ... you know the answer-key comes with the word "watch", don't you ? . . . ?? Well, I give up : it's surely a photography social media, but I couldn't find what this logo corresponds to : if you can find the social media it represents, please tell me ! ⇒ I knew you'd find it (1) : the logo shows Instagram's camera. Pinterest : "Here's a recipe with bacon" Why not explain what ' Pinterest' is ? (1) : thanks to SteF

Facebook Is Not a Front Porch I created this photo prompt and used it as an optional warm-up. The results were interesting. Students care far more about numbers of friends, followers, likes and favorites than what I had thought. Here are a few of the student quotes (posted with permission): "I check Facebook first thing in the morning. If no one liked what I said, I start the day depressed." "There's a rush to having ten likes all at once." "I try to tell myself that it doesn't matter if I lose followers, but it hurts." "Sometimes I take a picture on Instagram and all the hearts make me think that I might be a good photographer. I am still a fan of social media and the notion of being connected. So, my lingering thought is this: We need front porches now more than ever before.

Social Listening: escucha las redes sociales Mucho se ha dicho y escrito de lo que se debe escribir en redes sociales, pero ¿alguna vez te has preguntado lo que puedes escuchar a través de estas plataformas? A esto se le llama social listening. Se trata del monitoreo de los seguidores en Twitter, fanáticos de Facebook y demás comunidades sociales en tiempo real para saber qué tiene que decir el público sobre tu marca. “Social listening es la mayor aportación de las redes sociales porque nunca antes un negocio pequeño o un emprendedor tuvieron la capacidad de hacer publicidad de alto impacto como lo hacen las empresas más grandes”, dijo Federico Isuani, director general de la agencia Socialand. El atractivo de esta metodología está en la oportunidad que supone para los emprendedores para desarrollar contenido hecho a la medida para la audiencia interesada en su negocio o que podría representar clientes potenciales. ¿Para qué sirve? De acuerdo con el sitio Social Media Today, esta práctica tiene beneficios muy claros. 1. 2. 3. 1. 2. 3.
