Experimenting in Collaborative Learning and Teaching: The Social Media Classroom Howard Rheingold has gone back to the lab to create new pedagogies using chat, forums, streaming and other collaborative technologies.
Funded by a small award from the MacArthur Foundation Howard worked with a developer to create the free and open source Social Media Classroom (http://socialmediaclassroom.com). The classroom will be demonstrated and Howard will give the findings from his experiments with using social media to capture and lead the attention of students, including organising students to take the role of the facilitator of learning at times.
Working Collaboratively for Learning and Business There has been a fundamental shift in the way we learn. Driven by online social networking tools such as Blogging, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, how we learn from each other and organise that learning has changed forever. Euan Semple will examine what these changes mean for people in business and education, how they represent a new wave of exciting opportunities for 21st century organisations and what lies in store for managers and teachers and the role they will play in the future of business
