  • purposeful social engagement
  • If we regard social media as a pit of narcissism it’s because of the behaviours we’re encouraging within these spaces – not the technologies.
    • Steve Ransom
      Yes... we need to lead kids in the notion that they can be more than "I"... that they can be part of and participate in virtual (and physical) communities that can empower them and give them meaningful voice.
  • Are we consumers of each other’s social, cultural or material status or are we participants and contributors in larger projects that benefits us all?
    • Steve Ransom
      Being a consumer does have its benefits, but the larger benefits are most certainly found when one contributes and participates with new levels of transparency.
    Great blogpost!

Writing Tool Belt 2.0 | David S. Bill IV - 0 views

    writing to participate\n\nWriting has never been more important but we must recognize this cultural shift. Educators must develop a new tool belt that supports the interaction and connectivity that our students now thrive upon. Our students text, comment, and tweet. Our job is to use the tools that they are familiar with to create an environment that develops the literacy skills Yancy mentions while building upon our students' communal interactions via social media.

    This blog post on Ewan McIntosh's points out a new peer-reviewed study that links Web 2.0 to academic improvement. The report found that Web 2.0 tools encourage participation and engagement, especially for those students who are timid; help students continue classroom discussions outside of the classroom; let students who are so inclined continue researching anytime, anywhere; and instill a sense of ownership and pride in students for the work they publish online, which can lead to more attention to detail and a better quality of work. The report also found that one of the biggest obstacles to using Web 2.0 tools in the classroom was the time it takes teachers to incorporate those new tools into lesson plans. Although many teachers were familiar with the tools and used them in their personal lives, they were apprehensive about how to monitor Internet use in the classroom and the time needed to figure out how those tools should be used to teach.
