Agile, Versatile, and Comprehensive Social Media Platform for Creating, Sharing, Exploiting, and Archiving Personal Learning Spaces, Artifacts, and Traces

Nowadays, students bring their full ecosystem of social media platforms and their own devices to school, while teachers benefit from and contribute to local or global repositories of educational resources. As a consequence, educational institutions have to better align their digital infrastructures and support schemes with these personal ecosystems and social practices. They also have to offer resources at a level of granularity aligned with targeted activities rather than full-fledged courses to ease personalization. Institutions finally have to ensure control of learning traces and persistence of learning outcome. To meet these needs, this paper presents, a social media platform supporting digital education from primary and secondary school to higher education. Participatory design, fitness for active learning, and adoption are discussed as well
