Building a socially motivated learning environment
[NOTE: Although not required, this presentation has an interactive component that would best be experienced with a mobile device, such as a laptop, iPad, or Smartphone (Droid, iPhone, etc…)]
The interactive social media based learning environment is a software system that provides a social media classroom experience for interactive learning. Students log in with a mobile device, such as an iPad or a laptop, and participate in a classroom environment in which they can view lecture slides, “chat” on-line with other users during the lecture, post rewards to their Facebook or Twitter accounts, and collaborate with each other on topics. Within the learning environment, the audience may also ask, rate, and answer questions on-line. The instructor has the capability of synchronizing lecture slides on the audience’s mobile devices as well as administering quizzes throughout the lecture and displaying visual results for the quizzes.
