AACE Global U will be hosting a series of seminars around “Social Media: Trends and Implications for Learning.” I was able to listen to the archived seminar for July, however I hope to participate in a future monthly online seminar:
August 10, 2009, 9:00 PM Eastern USA
September 8, 2009: 3:00 PM Eastern USA
October 13, 2009: 9:00 PM Eastern USA
November 10, 2009: 3:00 PM Eastern USA
December 8, 2009: 9:00 PM Eastern USA
The seminar series, led by George Siemens and David Cormier, is without fee and will include live interactive sessions, in addition to discussions with guest speakers and participants. All sessions are co-sponsored by and will be archived in the Education & Information Technology Library (EdITLib). And you can join in the discussion on AACE Connect.
During these Elluminate sessions, the conversations will be active in the webinar and recorded for those who cannot participate at these specific times. By using the #SMTI hash tag you can find conversations on Twitter, archives in blogs and resources in Delicious.
Here were a few key discussion pieces I found useful from the first social media seminar:
- Networking in Everyday Life by Bernard Hogan
- Examples of learning outcomes for social media & digital technology use in learning
- The Digital Melting Pot by Sharon Stoerger
- Open Educational Resources: Opportunities and Challenges in Higher Education paper
- Cover It Live
- Educating the Net Generation – EDUCAUSE
- FREE by Chris Anderson
- Does Technology Really Enhance the Quality of Teaching & Learning? by Tony Bates
