Social media and emerging technologies are gaining increased attention for use in education. The list of tools grows daily.  Examples: blogs, wikis, Ning, podcasts, Facebook, Twitter, Second Life, cloud computing, surface computing, mobile learning, and so on.
"Social Media: Trends and Implications for Learning" will explore the impact of new technologies, research, and related projects.
What does it all mean? Do long term trends and change cycles exist in the constant change? What patterns are emerging?  And, perhaps most importantly, should academics and education leaders respond?
"Social Media" will explore emerging technological and related research trends from a perspective of social and networked learning theory.  Finding coherence in the midst of rapid changes is increasingly difficult. This monthly sessions will create a forum for educators to gather, present, and discuss the future impact of today's trends.
