OK – according to this article the 5 P’s of social media are:

  1. PROFILES (note the plural)
  2. PROPAGATE
  3. PRODUCE
  4. PARTICIPATE
  5. PROGRESS

The context is social media marketing – but I think the idea might be co-opted for education…

  1. Profiles can be about who you are as a learner (or teacher) within a specific context or discipline – as well as identifying connections across and between these contexts.
  2. Propagation (still thinking this one through – but feel free to make suggestions)
  3. Production would be about knowledge creation, construction, building and making.
  4. Participation would be about social engagement – testing your knowledge, skills and ability in a broader context than your own learning.
  5. Progress is tracking changes, noting growth and development – reflection and goal setting
