One thing I'm noticing is that "social media" often just means a communications opportunity for the media department & that at best it includes Twitter, FaceBook, LinkedIn, & YouTube. But what often gets left behind in the discussions on pedagogcial use of social media is the significant & sustainable infrastructure that is associated with the use of wikis, & in particular, Wikipedia. Why do I think this is important? Because use of wikis in teaching & learning contexts promotes reflective practice in journalism & documentation as well as collaboration.
Excellent discussion! Many insights in this interview that are worth sharing and discussing. I have shared this via Yammer, the connective technology that my organization, the University of Wisconsin System Administration, uses to "integrate" through virtual collaboration.
The ongoing conversation and links to download the entire article are in the Mojo Forum.
