AACE Global U is pleased to announce and organize "Social Media: Trends and Implications for Learning," a monthly online seminar series.
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).
Social media and emerging technologies are gaining increased attention for use in education. The list of tools grows daily.
"Social Media: Trends and Implications for Learning" will explore the impact of new technologies, research, and related projects.
What does it all mean? Do long term trends and change cycles exist in the constant change? What patterns are emerging?
And, perhaps most importantly, should academics and education leaders respond?
"Social Media" will explore emerging technological and related research trends from a perspective of social and networked learning theory.
Finding coherence in the midst of rapid changes is increasingly difficult. This monthly session will create a forum for educators to gather, present, and discuss the future impact of today's trends.
