Lady Gaga

Excerpt:

Some might say she’s a product of social engineering, but if anything, she’s the engineer. In the same way, we already have come to the conclusion that learning can’t just happen in class. Much of the mantra these days is still centered on teacher-directed instruction. While I do believe there’s room for that, especially in more technical arenas, there has to be a sense that learning comes 24 / 7. It happens even when our students least expect it. We just need to present them with a set of tools that they’ll always need give them applicable situations, whether in context or otherwise.

I agree that one of the reasons students don’t know how to behave in a social environment is because they don’t have good models of how this can be done. I have had my students use facebook. I post a picture. (I teach geometry.) And students comment about the picture. They must make a different comment than what is already posted. This forces them to read/skim the previous comments, to post early and in some cases, to use the information others have posted to create their own post. I chose Facebook, because I wanted to be “in their neighborhood”. I wanted to be where my students were. One night I posted the new prompt at 9:30 and within 10 minutes, I had 7 posts!
