Concerning ===> Safe. One of the first things I learned in teacher school was that learning only happens when people feel safe. This includes physical and emotional safety. It's important to note that the girl says "I'll be fine." Despite her obvious fear of the unknown, she is telling us that she feels safe.


In 21st Century while using e-Learning, m-Learning and "Bring Your Own Device" [BYOD] WE MUST also consider the Internet Safety and the Security in School Environment as well as the Security of Home Environment because of HomeWork and the Protection of the devices!


A MUST know...

 

Learning the basics of Cyber-Security is ALSO a MUST in 21st Century! Education should follow this and teaching it up from the early age as nearly anyone is Online today!

 

It is actually very easy, so don't fear about, and check my FREE courses to find out and to help protecting the kids worldwide:

It’s Official: Using Twitter Makes Students More Engaged

It’s Official: Using Twitter Makes Students More Engaged | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

Assistant Professor of Education at Michigan State University, Christine Greenhow, conducted a study titled “Twitteracy: Tweeting is a New Literary Practice.” In it, she found that college students who tweet as part of their instruction are more engaged with the course content, the teacher, other students, and they have higher grades.

 

“Tweeting can be thought of as a new literary practice,” said Greenhow, who also studies the growing use of social media among high-schoolers. “It’s changing the way we experience what we read and what we write.” “The students get more engaged because they feel it is connected to something real, that it’s not just learning for the sake of learning,” Greenhow said. “It feels authentic to them.”

 

“One of the ways we judge whether something is a new literary form or a new form of communication is whether it makes new social acts possible that weren’t possible before,” Greenhow said. “Has Twitter changed social practices and the way we communicate? I would say it has.”

 

===> The study appears in the research journal Educational Forum. <===
