I am always appreciative of those educators who share new and innovative ways to use Twitter in the classroom.  These ideas can be applied both to online as well as on ground classes.

Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, January 6, 4:40 PM

One of the most difficult things to teach is paraphrasing without plagiarising. 21CIF.COM's new Plagiarism Dropbox gives you a way to provide self-paced on-demand training that will help you students recognize plagiarism as they learn how to paraphrase.

Educators will need to scrutinize the use of these tools, too.

Udacity has consequently added mentors to help shepherd students through the program and added the incentive of college credit. Those efforts have boosted retention from 3% to 100%, Thrun asserts.

Why You Need Digital Know-How –Why We All Need It | The European Business Review

By Howard Rheingold

We’re in a period where the cutting edge of change has moved from the technology to the literacies made possible by the technology.

 

The future of digital culture – yours, mine, and ours – depends on how well we learn to use the media that have infiltrated, amplified, distracted, enriched, and complicated our lives. I believe that learning to live mindfully in cyber culture is as impor­tant to us as a civilization as it is vital to you and me as individuals.

Chris Dede (shown here on screen), a professor of learning technologies at Harvard, says classrooms of the future will have “a more complicated model of teacher performance that, when they know how to do it, teachers are going to appreciate.”

 

It's a little like the tipping point a century ago, when America shifted from the rural one-room schoolhouse to the industrial-era school. We now have the kinds of technology that would let us develop a 21st-century education system if we have the political will to go ahead and do that.

I really enjoyed this article on "do's" and "don'ts" for empowering students in digital literacy techniques.  I think we forget - this is where our students shine. The article points out that today's undergraduates have NEVER known life without the internet.  How do we use that to help our students learn more?

No Facebook or Twitter in Class? Try These Teaching Work-Arounds

No Facebook or Twitter in Class? Try These Teaching Work-Arounds | Computer Technology for Learning in High Education | Scoop.it

http://diigo.com/0rdoa

It's clear that in order for schools to adequately prepare students for the "real world" they will enter upon graduating, teachers, administrators and other school staff have no choice but to acknowledge the role that social media plays in that world.

 

These strategies can help teachers maximize social media’s learning potential without using the tools.

 

New forms of social media emerge all the time. But what's to be gained from leveraging the power of these Web 2.0 resources in classroom activities?

Along with generating increased student engagement, these activities can be used to assess what students understand about a topic. Anyone can look up Benjamin Franklin on Wikipedia and create a PowerPoint presentation of the information found there. Creating a fake Facebook wall for Benjamin Franklin that delivers the same ­information, but from the perceived perspective of Benjamin Franklin himself, adds a level of higher-order thinking to the activity that students will long remember.

 

Perhaps more important than the content we teach are the life skills we model by embracing these ­concepts. Using social media in the classroom allows teachers to remind students of the power their words can have online. This understanding will be crucial as they head to ­college, start a career and become adults in a ­digital world.
