Will it blend? Social media and education

This morning, MPR’s Midmorning aired a forum on the role of social media and education. From the program’s description:

How can social media and technology influence the way students learn and the way teachers teach? Kerri Miller hosted a live forum discussion with a Minnesota-based entrepreneur who is pioneering a social teaching project called Sophia, an internet (sic) platform that aims to enhance student learning both in and out of the classroom.

I also give my two cents at 30:41 into the program:

Sophia is featured in the broadcast. To request a beta invitation, click here.

    Thanks for this John.
    I think social media (when you get it right) is the most important thing our kids can be working with at school. for example, http://www.deforestaction.com, a global student lead project is only possible through social media. The increases in numeracy and literacy made possible through programs such as this can only be acheived with good, sensible social networking,and capable teachers to help students through it.
