The full survey results can be found here. There are many uses of social media in education - below are just a few of the ways they can be effectively used.

The Importance Of Education In A Facebook World If you’re on Facebook , you’ve most likely seen it: stories or images about a controversial topic that stir up emotion in people, only to be proven false with a quick search from Snopes or Google. If you’re anything like me (and I freely admit that this seems to take more effort than it’s worth), you put your librarian hat on and look for factual inaccuracies. Taking a quick scroll down my Facebook feed shows me just how information illiterate so many people are (or, at least many of my Facebook friends… yikes, does that say anything about me?!). Just yesterday, a friend from college found an article originally posted on Reddit and shared it on Facebook. Some things that caught my attention: - The married couple (for the sake of argument, let’s say their last name is “Doe”) featured in the story were only referred to as “Mr. Further Inspection There was a photograph of the parents included in the article, too.

Google To Launch “For Everyone” Ad Campaign Around New Chromebooks, Expands Best Buy Partnership To 500 Stores When Google announced the new $249 Chromebooks from Samsung this morning, the big message was that these computers are “for everyone.” If that sounds like a marketing slogan, well, that’s exactly what it is — Chrome and Apps Senior Vice President Sundar Pichai said Google is launching an ad campaign around that theme, starting with TV spots that should air tonight. This will actually be Google’s first big marketing push for the Chromebook, he said. Pichai compared the situation to the launch of Chrome, where Google waited until the team felt it was “really ready for the mainstream,” which meant that the first real ad campaign ran about year after Chrome first became available. You can see the first “For Everyone” ad below. The company will also be expanding its brick-and-mortar retail efforts. The new Chromebook will also be available for order online as well, of course, including in the Google Play store.

Social Media in Schools There is something about Facebook, and all of social media, that makes it work especially well within a school community. What began in the post-secondary realm has spread like wildfire throughout the world, but it has returned to academia on a younger scale. The social part of it is obvious, but for elementary school students and up the educational benefits are proving to be even more powerful than likes and pokes. This infographic tells the story of social media among children from a statistical side--an astounding 96% of students who go online use social media--but it also includes ways teachers, schools, parents, and students are working together to use social media to strengthen and build their communities and themselves. The infographic features one school in particular that has begun a pilot program to test how social media can become less of a distraction and more of a solution to the school's biggest challenges.

Un site web ou une page Facebook ? Un site web ou une page Facebook ? Le web évolue tous les jours c’est certain mais c’est au fur et à mesure que les années passent que l’on peut se rendre réellement compte de son évolution. Cela a par exemple été le cas de la distinction entre le web 1.0 et le web 2.0 ! Aujourd’hui, nous ne sommes pas encore au web 3.0 mais nous ne sommes plus exactement à l’ère du 2.0, peut être le 2.4 ? Mais avez-vous déjà entendu parlé de ce que je vous parle en fait ? Histoire et évolution Grossièrement, on parle de web 1.0 et de web 2.0, même s’il existe différentes étapes avant et entre ses deux paliers que l’on n’abordera pas aujourd’hui. L’époque du web 1.0 a pour emblème les sites vitrines. une page d’accueil,une page de présentation,une page de coordonnées,etc. Il faut retenir que dans le web 1.0, il n’y avait pas d’échanges possibles avec les internautes, ces sites étaient des sites vitrines statiques, que l’on consultait pour obtenir les informations que l’on cherchait, rien de plus.

Attitudes and Motivation in Second-Language Learning. This book summarizes a 12-year research program concerning foreign-language-learning aptitude and factors which influence academic achievement. Attention is centered on the matter of individual differences in skill with foreign languages, concentrating primarily on adolescents attempting to learn French or English. The studies carried out by researchers from McGill University and the University of Western Ontario give rise to a sociopsychological theory of second- or foreign-language learning. In brief, the theory maintains that the successful learner of a second language must be prepared to adopt various aspects of another linguistic and cultural group. Research approaches are summarized and integrated while the separate research reports are appended with extensive supporting data.
