Everything today is about social media. Even if you are not a blogger, and could care less about blogging, chances are you are at least using Facebook and Twitter.

Of course, since you are here reading my HootSuite review, you are most likely a blogger, so you probably have accounts on billion social sites, of which you can’t even remember half.

iLearn Technology » Blog Archive » Seesaw: The ultimate ePortfolio for every classroom! | Technology in the Classroom; 1:1 Laptops & iPads & MORE | Scoop.it

What it is: Seesaw is the first truly student centered/driven digital portfolio tool that I’ve seen. What makes Seesaw such an awesome option as a digital portfolio is the way that it empowers kids to build and keep a digital portfolio totally independently with features like QR code login for young students. Students can log their learning using photos, videos, drawings, text, PDFs, and links. Seesaw also has direct import features from lots of popular apps. From the teacher perspective, Seesaw makes it simple to access student work immediately from their own device. Content is easily searchable by student and makes it simple to review student progress over time and keep track of growth. In addition to browsing by student, teachers can use ........

Highlight Debates or Analyze Presentations Through Vibby

Highlight Debates or Analyze Presentations Through Vibby | Technology in the Classroom; 1:1 Laptops & iPads & MORE | Scoop.it
One of last week's most popular posts was about a new video highlighting tool called Vibby. Vibby allows you to highlight and comment on sections of YouTube videos. You can even break the videos to play only the sections that you highlight in the video's timeline. An email that I received today from Vibby gave me a good idea about how to use the service to help students analyze debates and presentations.
Cyndi Danner-Kuhn's insight:

Vibby is running a contest called Highlight the GOP Debate. In the contest they're asking people to highlight outrageous moments, exaggerated truths, and fluffy or meaningless statements. The contest is open to anyone who is a registered Vibby user.

50+ Google Tools Tutorial Videos

50+ Google Tools Tutorial Videos | Technology in the Classroom; 1:1 Laptops & iPads & MORE | Scoop.it

Earlier today I Richard Byrne conducted three webinars about various Google tools for teachers. Each of those webinars was only thirty minutes long so there wasn't a lot of time for individual questions. Since the webinars ended I've had a bunch of emails from folks looking for more instruction. The playlist of Google tools tutorials currently has more than 50 videos covering topics like Google Sites, Blogger, YouTube tricks, Google Calendar settings, and Google Drive features. The playlist can be found here or you can view it as embedded below.

Do your kids like to use your phone or tablet like iPad to take pictures and videos? I have seen many kids playing with them. Why not take advantage of their interest and have them make some fun movies? Kids will have fun and without knowing it, they will be learning movie making and presenting skills, some will learn about storytelling too. Today we share some apps that allow kids to create movies or presentations with videos. As most of them are so easy to use, young children like preschool kids should be able to use many of them.

The “WHY” Guide to #Edchat topics
Although many educational models and pedagogies can seem like a conveyer belt of fads sometimes, many of them at least focus on one or two key educational concerns. Regardless of whether you think it a passing fad, many of them have an aim that you should know about and be considering as a teacher in the 21st Century. I must admit though, as busy teachers, it is understandable that to fully implement a number of them is unrealistic. So here’s my summary of the key take-aways from each model that you should aim to implement in your teaching.
