Found in http://www.bcit.ca/library/databases/b">BCIT Library's suscription to Books24x7, href="http://www.gowerpublishing.com/isbn/9780566089305">Learning with Online and Mobile Technologies: A Student Survival Guide refreshingly makes the assumption that today's students are still diverse in their tech-savviness. Ignoring the NetGen hype, the authors soberly describe educational technolgies in use today and recommend strategies to students in how to be successful using them as well as how to take charge of them to benefit their own learning.
Here's a sample:
Quick Tips: Socialising and Peer Support (Web Chat, Social Networking, Micro-Blogs)
- For online chat, organise a suitable time to meet the group online;
- write in short sections of text;
- establish turn taking rules before you start;
- identify a Chair if necessary;
- on social networking sites, join relevant student support groups;
- make sure you have set appropriate privacy options to control who can view your personal details;
- when micro-blogging, consider how the messages you send and the responses you receive from others might benefit your learning.
