Exploring Social Media for Teaching and Learning

Web forums, blogs, wikis, podcasts, chat, instant messaging, social networking sites, virtual worlds, video / image sharing sites, have contributed to the web becoming a very different place than it was just a few years ago. It has become social and participatory. Through demonstration of a variety of social media practices and discussion of key questions, this session will ask participants to consider how the social web may be impacting education and the implications this has for practice.


By the end of this session you should be able to:

  • Identify several examples of social media on the web.
  • Describe social practices that have contributed to an emerging participatory culture on the web.
  • Identify potentially meaningful uses of social media to support teaching and learning.
