Education: Impacts and Transformations in the Social Media Era

A session at HighEdWeb 2012

  • Martha Gabriel

Monday 8th October, 2012

8:30am to 9:15am (CST)

Although the impact of digital communications in education started in the 20th century, the scenario has become much more complex since the spread of the social networks websites and mobile technologies in society and university. While students have quickly and naturally embraced the new socio-technological environment, education institutions have struggled to keep up with them -- we have 2.0 Students and need to become 2.0 Universities (including professors and staff). This presentation will discuss the major transformations in student learning and interaction, and explore the challenges and opportunities this brings to educational institutions.
