SOCIAL MEDIA SEMINAR SERIES
AACE Global U is pleased to announce the next seminar in its already successful series, "Social Media: Trends and Implications for Learning." 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 archived in the Education & Information Technology Library (http://EdITLib.org <http://editlib.org/> )
Social media and emerging technologies are gaining increased attention for use in education. The list of tools grows daily. Examples: blogs, wikis, Ning, podcasts, Facebook, Twitter, Second Life, cloud computing, surface computing, mobile learning, and so on. "Social Media" seminars explore the impact of new technologies, research, and related projects. 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.
