Social learning with social media

This Prezi was used in an invited talk that presents some findings from my book chapter “Social Learning with Social Media: Expanding and Extending the Communication Studies Classroom” published in Teaching Arts and Science with the New Social Media (Emerald Publishing Group, 2011). In this chapter I look at how the techno-social affordances and uses of social media, specifically class blogs (WordPress) and microblogs (Twitter) together, can help achieve social learning. Strategies and best practices are explored to address how social media can be utilized by educators to accommodate the heterogeneity of digital learners, engage new styles of learning, and encourage civic engagement.
