I had no idea there were so many tools available to allow small groups of people to interact together in real-time.  These could be used for small group discussions with students or with other faculty.

Twitter Aligned with Bloom's Taxonomy for Your Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Twitter Aligned with Bloom's Taxonomy for Your Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Collaborative online tools | Scoop.it

by Med Karbach

 

Thinking about using Twitter with your students ? The visual below is one of the best guide I have come across online. The graphic is created by Langwitches and provides a cognitive incentive for those reluctant teachers out there to start using social media with their students and particularly Twitter.

Langwitches started her graphic by outlining some of the reasons why as a teacher you should be engaged in a tweeting experience with your students. Tweeting, as is shown here, helps you cultivate a wide range of important literacies including : digital literacy, information literacy, network literacy and also promotes some other skills such as critical thinking and reading and writing skills.

In the second part of the graphic Langwitches introduced the Twitter routine and talked about some of the things students need to keep in mind while using Twitter and then at the third part she placed some Twitter practices along a continuum of thinking skills with lower order thinking skills in one end and higher order thinking skills at the other.

Langwiches has also recently created a wonderful visual on visible thinking routines. I recommend that you check it.

Don’t Just Learn—Overlearn « Annie Murphy Paul

Don’t Just Learn—Overlearn « Annie Murphy Paul | Collaborative online tools | Scoop.it

“Why do I have to keep practicing? I know it already!” Cognitive science has a persuasive retort: We don’t just need to learn a task in order to perform it well; we need to overlearn it. “The message from this study is that in order to perform with less effort, keep on practicing, even after it seems the task has been learned,” says Ahmed. “We have shown there is an advantage to continued practice beyond any visible changes in performance.” In other words: You’re getting better and better, even when you can’t tell you’re improving—a thought to keep you going through those long hours of practice.

This idea resonates, and reminds me of the Four Stages of Learning model (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_stages_of_competence) and being able to develop an 'unconscious competence'. In 'Outliers: The Story of Success', Gladwell writes about his (disupted by some) Ten Thousand Hour Rule that suggests a lot of practice is required for one to become successful at something. I think that once mastery is acheived we are able to free up cognitive function to explore other aspects & dimensions of a task or activity...
