This article came to me by way of Scott Nesbitt on Google+. While I don't write my blog for money (well, at least not at this point it's not worth a salary), there are some interesting tips in here. Some I've figured out to a point--I know when I'm redirecting things to my blog and when I'm not. (Like this actual post done through ScoopIt!). But I'm not sure if some of the other elements the author mentions--if done sparingly--is truly all that awful, like the latest badge for an award (not that I've ever had one to post myself). 

 

What do you think?

This is an interesting perspective, for sure, provided in this article. I think many things are stolen, and it's hard not to do it, in some instances. Coming up with something totally unique and original is tough, even with writing blog entries! But there is  some validity to it, and it applies to content strategy as well. I have an article that I'm writing that will hopefully be coming out soon that will address this issue--with a twist--in the near future.  Stay tuned for that! In the meantime, read this and see how this is an important concept to grasp.

This infographic is a great way to provide a brief overview of what it is, models, framework, history, who's driving it and most importantly the results. Being data driven is essential as an educator and in order to implement new resources or techniques there needs to be student achievement and improvement results throughout the model.

How to Make a Class Backchannel | Democratizing Knowledge

How to Make a Class Backchannel | Democratizing Knowledge | 1:1 iPads in the 5th grade classroom | Scoop.it

Yesterday I posted a “Twitter Matrix” for education, which generated a fair amount of buzz in the micro-blogging world. A few people sent me messages asking if I could explain how I make my class backchannel, so here goes.

First of all, I think of the backchannel as the conversation that might otherwise normally happen in class within students’ minds, or between each other. It’s the communication that happens between two or more students about their experience of class and their own learning. To be clear, classes have always had backchannels of conversation, the difference now ist that technology allows us to put them to better use. When these conversations become public, students and teachers have an opportunity to learn from each other, and questions get answered, and issues get addressed.

Here are two ways that I have used Twitter as a backchannel:

I have used several other back channels services like Today's Meet (http://todaysmeet.com), but this sounds like a good way to accoumplish it too.  Might just give it a go in my class.
