Social media in and out of the university classroom

A (priced) online session offered on 29 March 2011 by Queensland University of Technology is: Social media in and out of the university classroom, with Howard Rheingold. "This session will focus on the use of social media in teaching, and the kind of collaborative inquiry and peer learning afforded by using digital media as part of a participative pedagogy. Howard will discuss the new literacies that are emerging and need to be taught: attention, collaboration, participation, crap detection, and network awareness. Get set for the 2011 academic year! Challenge your thinking about the literacies required of 21st century learners and learn about the tools and environments that can aide in the development of robust peer learning environments. Howard's presentation will be followed by a dynamic group discussion focused on how libraries of all types can captialise on collaborative inquiry and peer learning, and on how libraries can support the acquisition of new and emerging literacies."
