1
The Usage of Social Networks In Educational
Context
  • Sacide Güzin MAZMAN, Yasemin KOÇAK USLUEL
  • Hacettepe University, Faculty of Education
    Department of Computer Education and
    Instructional Technology
  • TURKIYE

2
Problem
  • Possible advantages of technology in educational
    context required the defining boundaries of
    formal and informal learning.

3
Problem
  • Increasing opportunity to ubiquitous learning by
    technological support has revealed a question
  • How to discover the potential of individuals in
    the spontaneous environments such as social
    networks?

4
Problem
  • While social networks have been adopted and being
    used extensively all around the world, it is
    notable that they are not adopted in the
    educational field as much in other fields.

5
Purpose of study
Proposing a new model that could determine
factors which effect adoption of social networks
to use in educational context.
6
Social Networks in Educational Context
  • A common space for
  • Shared interests, needs and goals
  • Collaboration
  • Knowledge sharing
  • Online and offline interaction
  • Visual / Verbal communication

Social Networks in Educational Context
  • Support both the virtual and real social worlds.
  • Solution to limitations of learning management
    systems (LMS) with social communication and
    personal profile tools.

Social Networks in Educational Context
  • Positive relations between students-teacher and
    students-students by creating more cordial
    environments.

    incorporating
  • Rich audio (Podcasting, Skype)
  • Photo (Flickr)
  • Video (vodcasting, YouTube, Stickam)
  • Networking (Facebook, Myspace)

10
Social Networks in Educational Context
  • Need to expand vision of pedagogy that learners
    are
  • Active participants
  • Co-producers of content rather than passive
    consumers
  • Learning is a process
  • Supporting personal life goals and needs
  • Participatory
  • Social

11
Social Networks in Educational Context
  • Emerging informal e-learning domain is receiving
    greater attention because of the widespread
    utilization of social networking technologies.
  • Informal learning
  • Unplanned and spontaneous
  • Information is being acquired implicitly
  • Open for the participation of everyone
  • Learners direct self-control

12
Adoption of Social Networks in Educational Context
  • While social networks have been adopted and being
    used extensively by many people, it is notable
    that they are not adopted in the educational
    field as much in other fields

13
Adoption of Social Networks in Educational Context
  • Models and theories about diffusion, adoption and
    acceptance of innovation could be grouped under
    two folds
  • Based on socio- physiological contexts and
    investigated adoption of innovation at the
    individual level focused on internal decision
    processes
  • Focused on features of innovation and its
    examined spread among users in a system

    in a very short time,

Educational Context
  • As social networks
  • contain social activities
  • include very different people with their social
    norms
  • different groups with their subjective cultures

19
Proposal Model For Social Networks Usage in
Educational Context
  • As social networks are
  • relatively new environments
  • different form other communication environments
  • require taking risk to try

20
Proposal Model For Social Networks Usage in
Educational Context
  • As social networks provide
  • opportunity to constitute an identity in virtual
    environment
  • coming together with people have common
    interests, needs and expectations
  • forming new communities around common goals

21

24
Conclusion
  • Students needs and expectations also undergo a
    change with technologic developments.
  • Education styles have became important in
    providing students to
  • participate actively
  • communicate in a flexible environment
  • share information universally
  • personalize education and environment
  • learn independently from time and place

25
Conclusion
  • It is supposed that effectiveness will be
    increased when social networks, one of the
    emerging technologies, start to be used actively
    and reasonably in the educational field.

26
Conclusion
  • In further researches this model can be tested
    and verified.
  • Researches can examine different potential
    constructs as
  • motivation
  • satisfaction
  • interaction
  • social presence
