Social Networks are playing an important role in Education. However, many existing ones lack on ergonomics, which directly affects their potential as learning platforms. For this reason, pedagogical usability is of central importance during the development, as well as in the process of maintenance of educational social applications. As a consequence of incomplete and uneasy to use checklists for similar applications, as well as the nonexistence of usability guidelines for social networks as educational environments, this paper presents the first steps of a new usability guideline list. Feedback from the validation show that our guidelines are perceived as well constructed by experts.

Google announced the launch of Gmail in a press release issued on April Fool’s Day in 2004. According to the release, Gmail was created after a Google user complained about existing e-mail services, although its title, “Search Is Number Two Online Activity—Email Is Number One; ‘Heck, Yeah,’ Say Google Founders,” is a pretty clear indication that this was a strategic decision. Hotmail, Yahoo, and several sites now long gone had been around for years and, according to the market research firm comS...

This report summarizes the results of an ambitious three-year ethnographic study, funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, into how young people are living and learning with new media in varied settings-at home, in after school programs, and in online spaces. It offers a condensed version of a longer treatment provided in the book Hanging Out, Messing Around, and Geeking Out (MIT Press, 2009). The authors present empirical data on new media in the lives of American youth in o...

ABSTRACT New social-sharing applications are transforming the Internet from a read-only (Web 1.0) environment to a read-write ecology that many are calling Web 2.0. These tools (e.g., weblogs and wikis) enable Internet users to publish information online almost as easily as they can read online, and they have tremendous potential for learning. This article provides illustrative comparisons of Web 1.0 and Web 2.0 tools to illuminate three key characteristics of the Web 2.0 platform: (a) user-init...

This paper introduces the idea of Web 2.0 to a sociological audience as a key example of a process of cultural digitization that is moving faster than our ability to analyse it. It offers a definition, a schematic overview and a typology of the notion as part of a commitment to a renewal of description in sociology. It provides examples of wikis, folksonomies, mashups and social networking sites and, where possible and by way of illustration, examines instances where sociology and sociologists a...

This article considers the affordances of social networking theories and tools to build new and effective e-learning practices. We argue that “connectivism†(social networking applied to learning and knowledge contexts) can lead to a reconceptualization of learning in which formal, nonformal, and informal learning can be integrated as to build potentially lifelong learning activities to be experienced in “personal learning environments.†In order to provide a guide in the design, developme...

This invention relates to pneumatic control systems, particularly to a timing device for the same, wherein a control device is maintained at a constant speed by means of a balance wheel or flywheel, whose kinetic energy furnishes a pneumatic signal and which mechanically shifts a valve to pass on the pneumatic signal. The shifting of the valve is adjustable.
