Some South Korean universities have opted to implement creative ways to teach religion through the use of social networks. Students are closely related to their mentors using a mentoring strategy.
Kim describes this learning experience in which students are inserted into communities of practice in order to achieve a change in their values and attitudes. Figure 8 shows the types of pedagogy used in learning activities. The results show that in Mexico are self-directed learning Self-directed learning is an approach often discussed. It is mainly conceived by the designing of teaching and learning methods in which students are the key actor in their formative process. In this sense, data shows that in Mexico educational strategies lead self-directed learning.
However, by and , authentic tasks in context combine the usage of social media for learning. These pedagogies refer to: problem-based learning and project-based learning.
In the case of South Korea, data shows that collaborative learning occurs as learning opportunity over the past 10 years.
According to Lee , collaborative learning has been implemented to reinforce students' socio-emotional aspects and to create spaces for exchanging of ideas in a way that computer serves as a mediator. However, many authors in media such as television, newspaper, the internet, etc. In this sense, students work individually from different locations e. What are the learning effects that result from the use of social media in higher education? As seen in Figure 9 , in Mexico the use of social media impacts on the change of attitudes and values In Mexico students are more influenced on seeking for expression of their ideas through 'modern' technological tools when they combine study and leisure time.
This demonstrates a cultural change, other interests and an 'enthusiasm' when using social media; however, in academic context there are not yet clear strategies to be potentiated. The added value of social networks, in particular, is characterized on a social attractiveness of the closeness between formal and informal, encouraging communication between students, the ability of decentralization and modulation of activity on widespread use but organized by various agents Haro, In the case of South Korea, the use of social media impacts the way in which virtual communities are built and students participate actively in them.
The large number of interactions between students, teachers, experts, researchers, parents, etc. These tools facilitate informal learning through the acquisition and management of information, creation of open space for discussion, conversation, and to perform tasks beyond the classroom.
Diverse elements have also been identified as essential part for the implementation in the university. First, in Mexico, social media have been implemented in knowledge domains such as social sciences, education and elective subjects.
Users are mostly women. The participation of women is crucial since they represent an important element for effective communication and socialization. Freshmen bring a stronger digital culture to the university and they are able to carry out tasks and learning activities more efficiently using technology.
Graduate students in service use more social media to develop technical-didactic skills for teaching activities. Second, in South Korea, social media has been mostly implemented in the department of education. The implementation of these tools is shown to be slightly balanced between men and women.
Freshmen are more likely to use social media in both countries. One difference with Mexico is that this Asian country has implemented these tools more for pedagogy innovations than technological innovation. Third, in Mexico, the purpose of the use of social media has been primarily to provide new means of communication.
Blogs have worked as facilitators for the development of technical and cognitive skills. While in recent years, the use of Facebook promotes conversation, discussions and connection with others. Furthermore, cloud computing promises to be in Mexico an alternative to solving conflicts in access to education, infrastructure costs and software licensing. Blended learning environments facilitate the informal way of working inside and outside the classroom and it fosters self-directed and individual work.
Likewise, more flexible and adaptable pedagogy are observed according to students' nature as problem-based learning and project-based learning. Fourth, in South Korea, the wiki was introduced as a fundamental key to creating collaborative environments for participation, primarily for problem solving and decision making.
However, in recent years, social networks have facilitated the creation of social relationships and the emergence of a social capital. The effect "always-on" with others through the Internet has contributed to trust with the group, the construction of new creative ideas and the maintenance of a social presence.
Finally, blended learning environments are strongly accompanied with the designing of autonomous activities to enhance self-directed learning. Fifth, the effect of social media as learning outcome, in Mexico, showed changes in attitude and values toward the use of social media in school activities.
Mainly, these resources help for expressing ideas, creating and transmitting digital content among peers combining study and leisure time. In contrast, in South Korea, not only a change in attitude and values were reflected, but the construction of meanings and discourses has conducted a transformation of the "ecology of learning" of students through the use of new media through the Internet.

Facilitating collaboration in online learning. Profile decoration is akin to decorating one's bedroom wall or locker back before that was a fire hazard. It's all about self-expression for friends.
Social network site Friends are not the same as your closest and dearest. There are all sorts of reasons to list others as Friends, not the least of which is because it's socially rude not to. Don't assume that when people indicate that they are connected on this system that they like each other. One way of thinking about Friends is as intended audience. This is who teens think that they are hanging out with.
Of course, this is also Ground Zero for psychodrama - there's nothing fun about having to answer the question "Are you my Friend, Yes or No? Most adults look at the comments on teens' profiles or Wall and get all uppity. Sure, the conversation typically boils down to "Yo, wazzup? I'm bored. I don't think so. All of this is a process of social grooming. It's a way of acknowledging one another and connecting while also letting everyone in the room know that you're not a pariah. I mean, imagine if we all went into the hallway and stood by ourselves and didn't make small chat.
Wouldn't we all feel really awkward? So think of these Comments in that regard. Teens know how to have deeper conversations - this just isn't where those necessarily happen. New Feed. When Facebook launched the News Feed and MySpace copied it , microblogging emerged on social network sites. These "status updates" provide a reverse chronological stream of the state of being of one's network. Many of these are mundane notes, details about food, comments on life, the universe and everything.
Most of you are familiar with this kind of structure through Twitter. Many of you have already send a bazillion Tweets today - we've all been watching them. But before you go thinking that you're down with the kids, let's get one thing straight: according to Pew, the median age of the Twitterverse is That's right: this ain't kids' world.
Take a moment.. Do not assume that youth will adopt every new form of social media. In fact, they won't. There are very good reasons for why they don't use Twitter, not the least of which has to do with the fact that their parents think it's cool. Of course, Ashton Kutcher might change this. But for the most part, teens aren't here and aren't humored with being this public. So why are they here? What are they doing here? The first thing to understand is that there's social pressure to be where your friends are.
This ain't new. It's about the mall, about the school dance, etc. You don't exist if you're not where your friends are. Skyler 18, Colorado : If you're not on MySpace, you don't exist. Tara 16, Michigan : Like everyone says get a Facebook. You need to get one. Of course, just because teens want to gather with their friends doesn't mean that social network sites are the ideal place.
Often, being offline together with friends is much more preferred. Tara 16, Michigan : Oh, hang out, for sure laughs. Lila 18, Michigan : But if you don't have the option, then you can just go online. But they still have good reasons for getting together online with friends, not the least of which is because they aren't allowed out.
Teens often turn to them because they don't have other spaces in which they can gather with peers. Amy 16, Seattle : My mom doesn't let me out of the house very often, so that's pretty much all I do, is I sit on MySpace and talk to people and text and talk on the phone, cause my mom's always got some crazy reason to keep me in the house.
Of course, at the end of the day, social network sites are a great hang-out place, a great place to coordinate, and a great place to share. In fact, there's a lot about the way in which youth interact here that signals that it's just like any other public space.
Now here's where we need to think about structure. How are these environments similar or different to other public spaces? Properties and Dynamics of Networked Publics There are five properties and four dynamics that you need to keep in the back of your head for thinking about these types of publics.
What you say sticks around. This is great for asynchronicity, not so great when everything you've ever said has gone down on your permanent record. The bits-wise nature of social media means that a great deal of content produced through social media is persistent by default. You can copy and paste a conversation from one medium to another, adding to the persistent nature of it. This is great for being able to share information, but it is also at the crux of rumor-spreading.
Worse: while you can replicate a conversation, it's much easier to alter what's been said than to confirm that it's an accurate portrayal of the original conversation. This is the cornerstone of bullying. My mother would've loved to scream search into the air and figure out where I'd run off with friends.
She couldn't; I'm quite thankful. But with social media, it's quite easy to track someone down or to find someone as a result of searching for content. Search changes the landscape, making information available at our fingertips. This is great in some circumstances, but when trying to avoid those who hold power over you, it may be less than ideal.
Social media scales things in new ways. Conversations that were intended for just a friend or two might spiral out of control and scale to the entire school or, if it is especially embarrassing, the whole world.
Of course, just because something can scale doesn't mean that it will. Politicians and marketers have learned this one the hard way. And what does scale is often totally humiliating. This was learned by the kid with the light saber.
Of course, for those who have been watching the Interwebz these days, you might have been pleased to watch the Susan Boyle meme take off.
It's nice to have moments where the world seems kind and self-reflective, isn't it? With the mobile, you are dislocated from any particular point in space, but at the same time, location-based technologies make location much more relevant. This paradox means that we are simultaneously more and less connected to physical space.
Those five properties are intertwined, but their implications have to do with the ways in which they alter social dynamics.
Let's look at three different dynamics that have been reconfigured as a result of social media. Invisible Audiences. We are used to being able to assess the people around us when we're speaking.
We adjust what we're saying to account for the audience. Social media introduces all sorts of invisible audiences. There are lurkers who are present at the moment but whom we cannot see, but there are also visitors who access our content at a later date or in a different environment than where we first produced them. As a result, we are having to present ourselves and communicate without fully understanding the potential or actual audience. In fact, one of the first technologies used in the classroom was the chalkboard.
Most students today use technology throughout their school day. Uses for technology can be found for every subject matter a student has. In the simple forms, like electronic stoves, telephones displaying caller's ID and automobiles the ride of life has become a pleasure.
In the same way, the lives of students have also taken a leap towards easiness. When we talk about technology in education the first and foremost advancement is the computer and internet.
Technology, in Britannica Encyclopedia, is defined as the application of scientific knowledge to the practical aims of human life. Britannica, Using technology in education for the purpose of better understanding is a positive step taken by most of the schools, colleges and universities all around the world.
Technology can play vital role in improving education systems. Technology not only improves the learning environment to better fit the student, but also offers previously inaccessible learning material to students. Since its advent, technology has greatly transformed human life because it has widened the focus within which man operates because of making his efforts easier and attainable. Students are coming to school with computers in the form of phones, tablets, or laptops in their pockets and backpacks.
However, there are still districts, schools, and teachers who will not allow technology into their classrooms.
However, technology has influenced many other parts of our world including education. How has technology influenced education?
How do the pupils receive an education? How does technology play a viable role in this process? I will specifically be focusing on how education in South Africa is affected by technology.
The empowerment of technology simply comes down to the way it is used. More recently; however, the Internet has become some sort of replacement in the way students learn today. With the use of the Internet and little to no interaction with physical books, people can become uneducated rather easily.
The use of technology is impacting the use of medicine, transportation, and work in an unprecedented way allowing for innovations to happen daily. With such rapid expansion, it did not take long for technology to spread into the classroom. Through my research I have decided that integrating technology into the classroom is indeed a good idea. What technology is has changed significantly over the years.
In fact, nowadays students depend on their machine such as computers, laptops, mobile phone to study in the classroom or outside the class. In addition, they use the internet to communicate with teachers and to help them do research for information they need to do homework. In fact, computer technology has become easier for teachers to transfer knowledge and for students to obtain it.
The use of technology has made the process of teaching and learning more convenient. Talking in a positive sense, the impact of technology on education has been extraordinary. The teacher usually has either a desk top or lap top computer, sometimes both, for keeping track of important information.
Technology has, in many ways, positively impacted the educational field. Michigan has made using technology a necessity.
Technology has impacted every aspect of life and education is no exception Purdue. The education process has evolved as more people make use of technological devices and so education no longer starts or ends in the classroom. What was this technological wonder?Since autism is a communication disorder it will be difficult to directly interview the participants. Overall, Edmodo allows enlargement to different larning communities, where often acknowledged social, cultural, and political implications that also community and supply chances for collaborative acquisition. Today, we mostly think of technology as computers, but it is much more than that. The use of technology has made the process of public spaces. Instead, there are a number of important but less because we confess why we feel guilty and get.
We adjust what we're saying to account for the audience. At the end of the day, the biggest disruption brought on by technology has nothing to do with the youth themselves, but with the way in which it forces us to reconsider our position of power as adults.
The proposed method considered different digital devices. Accepted for publication: September 27, Hodgson, C. Perhaps the most important point to consider is the well-worn tendency of digital technology to reinforce existing patterns of educational engagement—helping already engaged individuals to participate further, but doing little to widen participation or reengage those who are previously disengaged. Learning OK
Of course, for those who have been watching the Interwebz these days, you might have been pleased to watch the Susan Boyle meme take off. On one manus, there is a free flow of information over the cyberspace. In this sense, students work individually from different locations e. The internet is used for everything from entertainment to school, work, shopping, and research.
Where posters are organised in a top down manner. The digital in digital media, refers to the use of computers, the software that allow computers to run, and the use of the Internet to communicate the different media tools in digital media. The author classifies it around three major themes: social practice, public information, and a sense of place. The predominantly optimistic rhetoric of transformation and change that currently surrounds the Internet and education distracts from a number of significant conflicts and tensions that need to be better acknowledged and addressed.
Removed classs are videos that are deleted or removed by uploader or moderator due to against footings of usage. In the past decade, technology has become a large part of education and schooling. Technology has, in many ways, positively impacted the educational field.
But they are also sharing differently. We of this generation are well aware that digital media also has the power to launch a career.
The purpose of this essay is to explore if mass media is likely to survive the spread of digital media communication.
