AVOID OR MINIMISE MIXING SOCIAL MEDIA WITH LEARNING. IT CAN BE COUNTERPRODUCTIVE
These days, with a plethora of social media platforms and online social channels, there are endless opportunities to obtain and publish content for learning. However, it can sometimes be overwhelming to be flooded with content that is not related to your learning. Not to mention that often - when using these social media platforms and online social channels - you are bombarded with advertisements and inmails that many of us wish are not there.
SOCIAL MESSAGING APPS DISRUPTS ACTUAL LEARNING
Those who use popular messaging applications to create groups for the purpose of learning will know that these messaging apps or web applications are first and foremost just messaging applications. Whilst they are good for quick and instant communications, these platforms are not designed for individual, team, or group learning. Use mostly as a communication tool, these popular messaging apps often disrupt learning with their constant notifications or reminders - even when the MUTE is turn on.
YOU NEED A CONTROLLED SPACE EVEN FOR SOCIAL LEARNING
Learning is best when it occurs in a controlled environment - and better if you are in control. Like going to a study corner or room to learn, you want your online social learning to happen in a space you've dedicated to learning. You can choose when to enter and when to leave. When to be notified and how to be notified. And nothing happens in the space except learning. In short, you need a learning zone - where you connect with content, resources, and people that matters to your learning. That's pretty much it. No distracting feeds, advertisements, or unwanted inmails or messages.
