Using social media with learners – setting the mood

A great video was shared to set the mood of the ‘using social media with learners course’  and I just had to share it as well. Each year a new version of this video is done. If you are not getting your training online you are crazy.

Also another video about Digital Natives. Quite a few of the people doing this course were feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the new platforms that we were being exposed to. This video was a timely reminder about our learners who may be more digitally capable than we are and how we really need to be continually developing our skills if we want to engage them.

Social Media in Education – Teaching Digital Natives in 2011

Another topic of discussion this week was about our digital footprint. An article on this topic Identity, memory, death and the internet’ although written sometime ago, gave me cause to stop and think about what sort of digital footprint I will be leaving.

What are your thoughts on the positives and negatives of a digital footprint?

Have you googled yourself lately and find something that surprised you?

I would love to hear from you about your reaction to the video as well. Please leave a comment as I would love to hear from you.
