New Technology in the Classroom: based on teaching experience in US Universities

Connect-universum 2012
Author: Matyash O.I.

Topic of report: New media users and social interaction in the everyday life

The initial question I was asked to discuss is, how to characterize the difference between the US and Russian universities in the incorporation of the new educational technologies? Are Russian and US universities comparable in terms of using the modern technologies?
In responding to this question, I'll first bring into discussion my own observations and examples based on my personal teaching experience in a number of US and Russian universities, then I'll show some statistics on the topic (using the Internet in the US colleges today) to support some conclusions.

Picture "Internet"

New Media on The Internet
Have you ever tried to imagine what the Internet looks like? How it can be represented? British artist Benjamin Redford made a sketch depicting what the Internet is.

Last year in December the artist created “Internetopia” – a crowdsourcing product in which 220 people made their contributions. The British artist supposes that today this is the biggest work of art which was created with crowdsourcing.

“Crowdsourcing is the solution of problems of any complexity and character using wisdom of millions of people” — German Gref, Sberbank of Russia. In my opinion, this definition of crowdsourcing is the most simple and exact.

You can look at «the global village» here.

About the Book: Social Media Is Bullshit!

New Media on The Internet
There is a huge number of books which extol social media and tell us only about their power. Quite recently I came across the book by Brendon J. Mendelson called «Social Media is Bullshit!»
The name of this book is discouraging, isn’t it? Everyone is used to thinking that social media is the most powerful tool capable of everything and suitable for any purpose. But journalist and public critic Brendon J. Mendelson destroys this myth. He shows why social media are so popular and who really benefits from this myth.

This is a witty, unprejudiced and critical consideration of all the fuss over the social networks accompanied by facts, figures and quotations.
The book will be interesting for everyone!
