Social Media in Learning: The Good and the Bad
Social media is an essential part of many people's everyday lives, from interacting with Facebook and Twitter to posting blogs and uploading YouTube videos. For some, it serves as the communication channel of choice, and establishing the right teaching strategies surrounding the technology now can ultimately lead to more creative and engaging learning in the long run. But social media is seen by many as a distraction and is therefore completely eliminated from the design process.
We know the key to designing successful learning is to engage the audience, not distract them. In this session, you’ll learn:
• How to look objectively at both the pros and cons of social media in learning
• How to tap into the power of social media to increase learner productivity
• How to foster learner communication and discussion long after training has been completed
• How social media can help bridge the gap of geographically separated learners to create a cohesive learning group
