8 Social Media Strategies for Your Classroom | 21st Century Education in Learning Environments | Scoop.it

"Are you ready to bring social networking to your classroom? If you’re looking to make your classroom more relevant, connected, and meaningful to your students, it’s the best place to start. Study after study has confirmed the benefits of networking..." - Adam Renfro.

 

This is essentially a high-level playbook for 21st century teachers.  I've already begun many of these practices and it's great to see Adam Renfro tying these technologies and best practices suggestions together.  

 

Thank you Yuly Asencion for posting!

I tested this application only with 1 or 2 paragraphs of really poorly written text.  It didn't work very well.  But, the applicaiton claims it is designed for longer works like Essays, Theses or other academic papers.  However, I imagine tools like this one would be greatly appreciated by teachers around the world.  Try it with your students papers and please let me know how it worked!

Here's a nice list of apps for teachers using technology in the classroom.  Gchat and Google Talk are mentioned, however, currently I use Skype for both of these services.  Google Docs is great!  Jing is an application I'm considering using next.  And for Skype with Idroo, well, I'd want to have a tablet for that to be able to write legibily because I'm horrible at writing with a mouse! ;)

I haven't tried the others yet...
