The presenter will demonstrate examples of how adult education programs, individual administrators and teachers use Facebook. Then participants will engage in hands-on practice exploring individual Facebook profiles and interacting within a Facebook group. Participants will identify what it means to ‘like’ a page and why is it important for the adult school to have many likes. Those without Facebook accounts will group with others who do.

What to Do When Social Media in not working for you?

Ideas for teaching with Twitter





OTAN on Twitter

Follow otan on Twitter



Some suggestions on how to find people to follow on Twitter:

From the OVAE Technology list, 11/30/2010

To find the "right" people to follow on Twitter, use tools like WeFollow , TwitsLikeMe , Twellow , Twibes , TweepML

Find subject matter you are interested in and follow people who share it. Once you have a few good people, look at their followers. The other way is to search using hash tags #edchat, #adultliteracy, #esl or whatever topic. Then look at the "tweets" from people and follow those who are providing interesting material. Twitter has become one of the most valuable resources I have ever used to connect, collaborate and share great resources with like-minded professionals

Other Twitter Resources:


There was also a recent Education Week chat with Will Richardson on 21st Century Learning: Teaching Network Literacy during which Richardson speaks about using Twitter for personal learning as part of an Online Learning Network—for both himself as professionals but also for with adult learners to create their own Online Learning Networks.

National Public Radio’s On the Media called The Point of Twitter which looks at how twitter is being used by people. (Thanks for the reference, Nell Eckersley!)

Advice from Nell and anatomy of a tweet:


For those of you who aren’t familiar with Twitter here is a copy of the type of tweet that I find most useful:

AndresHenriquez

Digital Learning Now! report and recommendations: http://bit.ly/dHC35D #edtech

AndresHenriquez is the Twitter handle or name. This is who you would “follow”

“Digital Learning Now! Report and recommendations” is the headline that lets me know what the tweet is about

http://bit.ly/dHC35D is the shortened link to the actual report so I can see it for myself

#edtech is a hashtag, a tag that AndresHenriquez specifically added to his tweet to make it easier for people to find his tweet if they are interested in Education Technology.



You can search Twitter without having a Twitter account http://search.twitter.com/ . Try typing in #EdTech #AdultEd or #TechPD to see the kinds of information being shared this way. And if you do have a Twitter account this is also a way to find people to follow.

Social Network Groups for Education (...and just about anything else)


Ning


Ning - A newer site with way more Web 2.0 features than Yahoo groups, has been quickly adoped by education. Features news, many discussion boards created by any member, file and photo sharing, member home pages, friends, groups. Started charging in summer 2010.

My Space

My Space - many young people use this site, and education has started to use it also to reach the students who are already here.
http://www.myspace.com/

For example, Opportunities for a Better Tomorrow, a community-based organization in New York City that works with youth 18-24, created a MySpace page to help their clients learn about having a professional presence online when looking for work. Now deleted.
