This is the first time that I read about Boyer’s (1990) four dimensions of scholarship, and I appreciated presenting digital literacy discussions with this framework (Greenhow & Gleason, 2014). Social scholarship should definitely be adopted by scholar-teachers like us because social media provides many opportunities for scholars to improve their research and disseminate their findings to larger groups who can be benefited from these findings. In this way, scholars can also disrupt the power relationships between four dimensions as Greenhow and Gleason (2014) say discovery is the dominant dimension in the existing knowledge system. Because of this, works done with integration, teaching, and application may not be valued equally. However, if all researchers improve their digital literacy skills (carefully and critically using digital media in personal life, incorporating social media into research, using a variety of digital tools in teaching, developing an understanding of cultural and linguistic interactions on social media etc.), social media affordances can be fully integrated into four dimensions of social scholarship. To do that, scholars need to practice how to combine social media and digital tools with their research and teaching to maximize the benefits of social media affordances.

I also read with interest in Greenhow and Gleason’s (2014) paper about the new interpretation and development of Boyer’s (1990) four dimensions through the lens of social media. And I appreciate you for bringing up the “power relation”. I also thought that literacy in power relation is important among digital literacy competencies that scholars-teachers should have. But I don’t quite understand this part from your posting. Can you explain a little bit more?
