Technology Tidbits: Thoughts of a Cyber Hero: Top 20 Social Networks for Education - 5 views

  • "A social network is a social structure made up of individuals (or organizations) called "nodes," which are tied (connected) by one or more specific types of interdependency, such as friendship, kinship, common interest, financial exchange, dislike, or relationships of beliefs, knowledge or prestige. (Wikipedia)" Since I last posted on Social Networks a year ago, a number of new ones have been introduced that can be a huge benefit to education. With that being said, I decided to list my favorite networks for education that targets technology literacy.

Edmodo Online Community - 3 views

      Edmoto is a great way to introduce students to online communities. It models Facebook, which could be dangerous if teachers are trying to create learning community and not just a social community. However, it is a great stepping stone into what online courses involve.

    I have used this in limited ways with 7th grade students. Pretty easy to set up a class and it gives a "Facebook" type feel to classroom interactions within the private security of a school focused setting. What a great way to introduce, model and support best practices in social networking for kids. There is file sharing capabilities and assignment options in addition to microblogging. Teacher gets management of tools and options for each class. This is a fun way to share resources with and among students.

    Edmodo is a social learning network tool for K-12 classrooms. While it would be a nice addition to a F2F classroom environment, I also think it could provide a nice 'hub' for an online classroom as well.
  •  
    I can't seem to get a direct link to this, but it is an online delivery system that could by used to get content to students online. I started a class, added a fake student, uploaded an assignment, had the fake student complete the assignment, graded it and posted comments in about 45 minutes. It wasn't very elegant, but it was pretty easy to figure out without a lot of (or any) instruction.

    I love edmodo as a teen-friendly way to share information. The discussion groups are closed - only you and your students have access (and their parents if you share the code). The students like that it has a facebook feel to it. I like that I can share links and information easily. For example, I found a website about cool high tech careers and posted it for all my high school students. To my surprise, I've found that even high school students like the badges you can give out on edmodo. I've made a number of badges, such as the "perfect 10" badge that I give out when a student gets a perfect score on an assignment. They really want to get that badge and show it off to their friends if they get it. You can also delete posts if a student posts something unprofessional. A great teachable moment!

Ning - Create a Social Networking Site with Ning, the Best Social Site Platform - 3 views

  • Create a New Social Network
    • Dave Kunkle
       
      It's social networking, but you invite the audience. No creepers, only those people you invite.
  •  
    Good for setting up a safe social networking location for students in a class. Students must be invited to join and you, as the instructor, are the only one to send out invites. Great for student blogging.

    Ning is a social networking site that offers either a private or public place to communicate. I like to look at it as Facebook on steriods.
  •  
    This is a social networking site like Facebook, but you can create either a public or private networking site.

    Make sure you use that license agreement....must be at least 13 years old.

    Ning is a social networking site. This would be great to use in the classroom since you can set up a private social network. Can be used with any grade level to help share interests and information.

    "Classroom 2.0 is a free, community-supported network. We especially hope that those who are "beginners" will find this a supportive comfortable place to start being part of the digital dialog. " While this isn't is a Web 2.0 tool, it looks like it might be a helpful group for beginners like me. Living in Laos, I like how international the group looks. Does anyone else have suggestions of this kind of support group for beginners?

    A tool for teachers
  •  
    Resources like Classroom 2.0 are what a lot of my "beginners" would benefit from. A community supported network aimed at easing one into the technology discussion and learning some cool resources along the way. I encourage teachers who want to find some level of comfort with technology to engage it through sites like Classroom 2.0

    A social media site for those interesting in gaining knowledge about web 2.0 tools.
