Community communications go beyond blogs and social media shares, how does a PLN help and hinder the development of thoughts and ideas in education discourse?
I believe people have different ways of learning and a personal learning network allows students and instructors to build their own ways of learning. Therefore, a personal learning network helps the development of thoughts in education from various platforms. However, students can be misled by unauthorized information.
How do educators create discourse?
Educators usually create discourse based on past learning experiences and research from their educational backgrounds. For instance, many educators post notetaking and memory methods on public networks to help learners study more efficiently. Recently, I learned about the well-known Cornell notetaking method from many educators’ social media shares.
What is the role of social media in education?
Social media has played an important role in education since the COVID-19 pandemic because all students and instructors transformed from face-to-face lectures to online learning.
