There are many social media tools out there that can be used in education. We have chosen to highlight Twitter. In this case we have created a widget that will follow any Twitter posts made with the key words “social” and “learning.” Take a look at the conversations that are happening out in cyber space. While some posts are not related directly to social learning theory, many are.
Stop and Reflect:
How might you use Twitter with your students? Our example is bringing the conversations about social learning to you, but is there a way we could have you contribute too? How does using social media enhance social learning theories?
