(PDF) Social Media: Pedagogy and Practice | Kehbuma Langmia - iatt-ykp.orgSocial learning social pedagogy is learning that takes place at a wider scale than individual or group learning , up to a societal scale, through social interaction between peers. It may or may not lead to a change in attitudes and behaviour. Social learning is defined as learning through the observation of other people's behaviors. It is a process of social change in which people learn from each other in ways that can benefit wider social-ecological systems. Different social contexts allow individuals to pick up new behaviors by observing what people are doing within that environment. The process of learning a new behaviour starts by observing a behaviour, taking the information in and finally adopting that behaviour. Examples of environmental contexts that promote social learning are schools, media, family members and friends.
Selected as a Top Teaching Paper. Final revisions completed on May 12, First published online on May 21, Abstract Social media research, and particularly social media pedagogy, has increased substantially as a domain in public relations research. Yet, along with this increased focus on social media pedagogy, educators and other higher education professionals are under pressure from industry, professional communities, and university administrations to keep their classes updated and relevant for their students. To better understand the current state and rising expectations facing educators teaching social media, we interviewed 31 social media professors to explore the trials and tribulations of their journey and to identify best practices for social media as a pedagogical tool.
