The advent of social media has spawned a surge of open-source, user-created intelligence available through online media such as blogs, wikis and social networks. Since the number of people participating in social media activities seems to increase on a daily basis, we anticipate the amount of collective wisdom to grow as well. Our proposed presentation will outline our reflections on and work towards further enhancing social media by adding in instructional design principles in an effort to further facilitate learning. It will specifically address the Teaching with Technology: Engaging Students through 21st Century Learning conference theme as we will discuss the current and potential uses of social media in a variety of formal and informal learning contexts. We will also address ways of applying “traditional” best practices for implementing instructionally-enhanced social media applications in the classroom.
