#VandR Exploring Social Media Mapping

As part of recent requests to come up with digital literacy strategies for the use of social media I decided to create my own social map and share it as an example exercise for both lecturers and students. The Mapping exercise comes from the work done by JISC and @daveowhite

JISC. (2014, 16 December 2014). Developing digital literacies.   Retrieved from https://www.jisc.ac.uk/guides/developing-digital-literacies

Visitor-Resident, Social-Professional (or Personal-Institutional)

 

After sharing my social media map on Twitter I found out that there is a hashtag for the Visitors and Residents model #VandR and workshops being run in the UK on using social media mapping for creating awareness around digital literacies. So now I can compare my social media map with other educators around the globe!

#Scholarometer a research impact tool

Scholarometer(beta) is a social tool to facilitate citation analysis and help evaluate the impact of an author’s publications. Scholarometer uses Google Scholar data to create a relative discipline based research impact factor.

For example, my Scholarometer impact factor as at 14 December 2016 is found at: http://scholarometer.indiana.edu/cgi-bin/indexu.cgi?func=query&expr=e80965fb1f92e0f532ab47824efa0e09&ver=4.1.0

A widget provides a summary of the impact factor analysis:

scholarometer2016-12-14tcochrane

The widget provides embed code for use in various websites:

var scholarometerWidgetAuthorId = ‘e80965fb1f92e0f532ab47824efa0e09’;var scholarometerWidgetPreferences = {‘cited articles’: true,’citation count’: true,’h index’: true,’Scholarometer %ile’: true,’hs index’: {‘scholarship of technology enhanced learning’: true, ‘mobile learning’: true, ‘education & educational research’: true, ‘social sciences’: true, ‘educational technology’: true}};var scholarometerWidgetColors = {‘headingBackground’: ‘#cf8c21′,’headingText’: ‘#ffffff’,’contentBackground’: ‘#ffffff’,’contentText’: ‘#785A28′,’measureText’: ‘#4E360D’};var scholarometerWidgetWidth = ‘200px’;var scholarometerWidgetHeight = ‘auto’;var scholarometerWidgetFontSize = ‘0.9em’;http://scholarometer.indiana.edu/api/authors/author/e80965fb1f92e0f532ab47824efa0e09?format=jsonphttp://scholarometer.indiana.edu/html/js/scholarometer.widget.js

This based upon my Google Scholar profile:

https://scholar.google.co.nz/citations?hl=en&user=ir6f4g4AAAAJ&view_op=list_works&gmla=AJsN-F55279ZF1s6hX43WgzgZ-1CwEPvS5TUWW0uSqQrv3USjOZUJL0dg1tTgykhTT_CoQdexQhVJ3xTLc6z4BA05fz1PPxrcKZjcyMTyfjfmzrDI1TZNgZiizHWeYN_2TAPPRBLQMz0

Scholarometer is an interesting attempt at creating a relative research impact factor analysis tool, and works via either a Firefox or Chrome browser extension. It’s another tool to add to your research profile alongside research networks such as Researchgate.net

Confessions of a community of practice member #mosomelt from @amanda_lees

amanda lees

Today Thom has asked me to come along to a session with my colleagues from the School of Interprofessional Health Studies.  And so, I’m thinking about what I might share with this group; what is it that has been the key learning for me over the past couple of years?

I think there are 3 key points I’d like to share:

  1. Being a learner makes you a more understanding, effective teacher.

I’ve gone back to my first terrifying blog post.

screenshot-2016-09-07-09-47-51Now, looking back I wonder what was so difficult! I’ve always used online technology in my teaching but realised that over the years I had become very comfortable and confident with the specific tool I used. So for me it has been hugely important to feel uncomfortable and unsettled and rediscover what it feels like to learn how to use new tools. It’s good for me personally but essential for…
