Part of the value of a Twitter backchannel is in understanding how it works. 

Kym Reinstadler, SCN Feature Writer's curator insight, March 30, 7:09 PM

Last week I attended my first Twitter chat around a hashtag. There were about 1,500 people in attendance. Keeping up with the flow of conversation was so challenging that I didn’t even try to participate. Also, expect "tweet overload" if you’re following a conference or symposium on Twitter. I expect to have better success this week because of this article. It contains excellent tips with graphics on using Twitter in these situations. It goes beyond the “how” to include the “why,” which always helps me grasp new learning. You’re welcome.

Linda Dougherty's curator insight, March 30, 8:32 PM

Great detailed analysis of Tweets - I can certainly use these.

"“Am I writing to myself?” That’s what I used to wonder when I first started teaching Spanish online a year ago. My learning management system, message boards, and group emails were impersonal and unresponsive—more like writing in my diary than sharing information with my students. I never knew for certain who read and understood my announcements or received an (electronic) handout or assignment directions."

Tech It Up Tuesday: Sunday Funnies for the Classroom

Tech It Up Tuesday: Sunday Funnies for the Classroom | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

Time for the next tech-isode in my new “Tech It Up Tuesday” series in which I will share an edtech tool, app, site or other resource that can be utilized in the educational setting.

 

Regardless if it’s print or digital format, many students and adults alike love reading comics. But did you know this form of recreational reading can also be a powerful teaching resource? Yep, it’s true! I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing better than captivating another’s attention using comic strip style visuals and/or humor as the vehicle. Well, the survey says….. A super cool tool that provides students with the opportunity to do just that is Bitstrips for Schools. Most importantly, this web-based resource also enables them to demonstrate knowledge and creativity about a particular topic, regardless of artistic ability, using a fun setup.

Pecha Kucha presentations with Google Apps: Fast and to the Point

Pecha Kucha presentations with Google Apps: Fast and to the Point | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it
The Pecha Kucha presentation format can be a great way to provide an overview of a topic. PechaKuchapresentations consist of 20 slides shown for 20 seconds each. This tends to produce a high-energy, fast-paced presentation. The format forces you to leave out the parts of your presentation that listeners wish you would skip.  

Even if a speaker or topic is incredibly boring, you know it will be over in exactly 6 minutes and 40 seconds. If only all meetings could be that way!

Type the Apple Logo Icon on iPhone or iPad with Keyboard Shortcuts - OSXDaily | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it
The Apple logo is iconic and used frequently by fans, but if you’re looking to type the Apple logo () on an iPhone or iPad you won’t find it in the standard keyboard options or special characters. Indeed, for the time being anyway, the Apple logo does not have an easily accessible character option in the iOS keyboard (it probably deserves a place in the Emoji keyboard at least). That doesn’t mean you can’t type out the Apple icon from an iOS device though, you’ll just need to use one of the following tricks.

It’s Tuesday, so you know what that means… It’s time to “Tech It Up” with another cool tool that can be utilized in the educational setting.

 

So, let’s get right to it. This week’s shout out goes to Photos for Class, a site that’s ideal for safely searching for images that can be incorporated into classroom lessons, activities and projects.

 

Besides providing G-rated images via Flickr and proprietary filters, downloaded images also include citations that are automatically generated by the web tool. Attribution includes name of the author and photo, a link to the original photo and the name and type of license as well as a link to the licensing terms. How cool is that? No more worrying about the copyright police banging on your door. Photos for Class has got you covered!

But with a plethora of choices, sometimes it’s overwhelming trying to determine what device best suits the needs of all learners. So, what should educators choose—the power of a laptop or the compact, lightweight portability of a tablet? Well, it’s no longer necessary to settle for one option when the best of both worlds are at your fingertips.
