Lärare och Sociala medier – Ett fenomen utan tydliga riktlinjer

socialamedierskola_2

En ny rapport ”Nationell kartläggning av svenska lärares (åk 7-9) användning av sociala medier” har publicerats av Uppsala Universitet, Samhällsvetenskapliga fakulteten, Sociologiska institutionen. I slutsatserna sammanfattar författarna Elin Thunman Johanna Lovén Marcus Persson att:

”lärares elevkontakter på sociala medier: ett utbrett fenomen utan tydliga riktlinjer De flesta högstadielärare i studien använder sociala medier, antingen privat eller i undervisningen (92 procent). Var tredje, 31 procent, anger att de använder sociala medier för elevkontakter.”

53% av lärarna är för det mesta eller alltid tillgängliga på sociala medier för elever utanför elevernas skoltid. Om du eller dina barn har en lärare som är aktiv på sociala medier i samband med undervisning är beroende på lärarens egna intresse. Författarna skriver:

“Lärares användande av sociala medier för elevkontakter kan beskrivas som ett gräsrotsfenomen, där initiativet kommer från lärarna själva och där det i hög grad blir upp till dem själva att skapa strategier för sitt användande.”

Social life of the young – same needs, different tools

When I was young, dating – or at least trying to date – consisted of slipping a note into a girl’s locker, or shuffling nervously towards her to ask her out with my friends offering humiliating support in the background.

Today it’s much simpler. Ericsson’s ConsumerLab report, Social Life of the Young, looks into how US teenagers are using technology in their social lives. What it shows is that a few text messages can test the temperature of a girl’s interest without you having to suffer the humiliation of your friends’ encouragement. Texting also allows you to communicate with your circle of friends during class or in the privacy of your family home.

Back in the day, walking around school holding your girlfriend’s hand was proof that the relationship was “official.” In today’s technology-driven society, and with Facebook being the highlight of a teenager’s online life, changing your status to “in a relationship” is now seen as the official announcement to your friends.

Operators take on Social TV at the Monaco Media Forum

TV is becoming increasingly social with a range of applications now available to consumers. Seeing Orange TV Check, an over-the-top service, presented by Patrice Slupowski from Orange at the Monaco Media Forum last week was really intersting in light of recent developments.

Citizen bloggers blogging to improve their communities

Last week, I was in Moscow doing research for a ConsumerLab project. I met some really interesting and creative people there. From bloggers who were improving the traffic situation to those working to improve the public’s history knowledge, it was great to see people generating content to change their communities.

Is Facebook the new village square?

I’ve been writing a lot lately on Facebook, sharing the results of a recent study conducted by ConsumerLab looking at the behavior of Swedish teenagers. In the next installment of my Facebook posts, I explain how the platform is just as important to social life today as the village square was in the past.
