How I use social media for my professional development

How I use social media for my professional development | Canes STEM Resources | Scoop.it

The issue of how we use social media for our own development as teachers and as digitally skilled individuals, is one that I believe is of vital importance though, not just because it can enable us to keep developing as teachers through the content, ideas, resources and above all people it gives us access to, but also because the way use digital media for our own development should guide and influence the way we use it with our students and build their digital literacies and communication skills.

Five Best Practices for the Flipped Classroom | Andrew K. Miller

Five Best Practices for the Flipped Classroom | Andrew K. Miller | Canes STEM Resources | Scoop.it

"Ok, I’ll be honest. I get very nervous when I hear education reformists and politicians tout how “incredible” the flipped classroom model, or how it will “solve” many of the problems of education. It doesn’t solve anything. It is a great first step in reframing the role of the teacher in the classroom."

A Simple Comprehensive Guide on The use of Personal Learning Networks in Education | Canes STEM Resources | Scoop.it

Personal Learning Networks, or PLNs, have been around for a long time. Originally they were your family, relatives and friends, or probably other educators and fellow teachers you work with in the same institution, but now and thanks to the development of web technologies and wireless connections, the concept of PLNs has been expanded to engulf people you have never met before in real world. Much of the learning nowadays takes place online and via a network of interconnected relations.

An interesting and personal account of curation for learning. According to the author, curation tools are used to facilitate the core practical tasks which anyone working on an information rich environment does: collecting, sorting, evaluating, and sharing information.
