Abstract

In the presentation at the ‘International symposium on Informed Design of Educational Technologies - Enhanced Learning and Teaching', I will discuss the following: the design process for teaching and learning innovations involving social media, challenges for educators in the design, development and evaluation of social software initiatives, the diverse roles that the educators have to perform for efficient and sustainable use of these tools, how knowledge management models can guide the designs of learning spaces involving 2D (web-based) and 3D (e.g. virtual worlds) spaces, the effects on students’ learning experiences, skills development and employability, their concerns about interacting with social software tools, advantages that institutions perceive from the use of these tools, concerns of the institutions about sharing of views and information in the public domain, and the challenges perceived by researchers of social software initiatives. I will outline some topics for further research and investigation such as changing role of the educator, learning analytics, and so on.
