7 Reasons To Use Social Media In Your School (INFOGRAPHIC) | #ModernEDU

7 Reasons To Use Social Media In Your School (INFOGRAPHIC) | #ModernEDU | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

One thing is for sure, social media is here to stay. Never before have people been able to connect, share, and learn from one another as we do now. I can only imagine what might be next! As a result, our students need skills to win at life in a digital world. The ability to use social media to support life goals and possibilities can be a game-changer. I know it has been very powerful for me in my professional life.

These are compelling reasons to practice social media in schools as it helps engage parents, the community, and the world.  Teaching digital citizenship is another key aspect of responsible use of social media for students and parents!

7 bonnes raisons d'utiliser les médias sociaux dans ses pratiques d'enseignement, pour une expérience d'apprentissage alliant l'engagement, le partage, le lien entre les acteurs de l'apprentissage, l'ouverture au monde et l'exploitation stratégique (après un tri sélectif) de tout ce que le numérique a de mieux à offrir à l’apprenant. Pour une expérience d'apprentissage stimulante, interactive et moderne, oui au multimédia dans l'enseignement !

Mauricio Diaz's curator insight, September 3, 2016 9:22 PM
Youtube has become one of the most usefull tools for searching information on enternet, there we can find news, tutorials, classes, lessons, instructions, and many more data, although it is not oficial, it is a source of information very useful even for academic people who eventually use this videos pge as a tool or source of information, it does not matter if this information is uploaded by some one who does not has knowledge about the theme or at least enough knowledge to be valid information, eventhough this page counts with an options of likes and dislikes, where people can get a type of guide to know if this information is usefull or not.
Then me as a user of this page is able say that the videos inside the page are valid at least for basic information.

Teaching with Twitter – Please check your baggage at the door | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

How-to’s and link roundups on teaching with Twitter has been done many times before, but the topic is worth frequent revisiting and refreshing, especially in the context of the #FutureEd initiative and the Pedagogy Project by HASTAC Scholars.

 

The goal of this review is to help think through if, why, and how to use Twitter in our teaching and learning – especially for those who remain skeptical.

Very nice sharing. Thanks

Christopher Resetar's curator insight, February 16, 2014 1:01 PM

I really like this article because it is very effective at weighing the pros and cons of using twitter in the classroom.  Some of the supplemental links are also very helpful to look at and include content on how to teach with Twitter and how to avoid some of the pitfalls that can result from using Twitter in a classroom setting.   In general, I believe strongly in helping students to develop global competency (as we have discussed in class) and I believe that Twitter is one of the best and most convenient mediums to do this.  While I am slightly apprehensive about how and if it is even possible to use Twitter in an elementary school classroom I definitely see more potential in using it after reading this article.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, January 6, 2014 6:01 PM

Teachers can start using Hangouts simply by setting up a Google+ page and signing up for the Hangout feature. They can conduct virtual classrooms at a number of places; it allows a teacher to teach up to 10 classrooms at the same time. It makes classes interactive and students can ask questions whenever they want. They can use it to connect their classroom with other classrooms or to connect their students with experts across the world, providing them with connected learning experiences. There are many ways in which teachers and students can derive benefits from using Hangouts in the classroom.

Holistic approaches for Learning with Technology

Holistic approaches for Learning with Technology | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Informational technology needs to be holistically integrated into our learning environments.

The integration of information technology into our unique learning environments can be greatly enhanced if we apply constructivist approaches. Such approaches could include, but are not limited to discovery learning, inquiry based learning, play-based learning and making. But they also include listening, reflecting, and taking the time to process. Essentially, we want our learners to become great thinkers. We want learners to take an active role in the learning process and move away from the passive regurgitation of information being passed from a teacher to a student. Effective infusion of information technology into our learning environments is an excellent way to achieve this.

In our world, information technology is not just a means to an end. It more about the information and how we use it that is the most important. How to find it, how to process it, how to use it, and how to build on it. The technology we use facilitates and re-shapes this use of information in many new ways. For instance, no longer are we following learning in a linear fashion, say, based on a textbook. Rather, we are working in flexible frameworks where learners can focus on big ideas, but follow their learning along multiple paths happening all at once in the learning environment.

I have said for a long time that WiFi Hotspots are not a secure place to do anything online that you would not want exposed to the general public. This being online banking, online shopping, viewing your corporate email account, etc. being just a few. 

 

With free online tools available on the Internet, it has become very easy for an attacker to view the information that you are entering into your computer from a free Wifi hotspot. These WiFi hotspots may be very handy, but not very secure.

 

The article above will show you a couple of ways that you can protect you and your computer if you travel frequently and use these hotspots. I want you to stay protected.

The only concern I have and I have not read the book, is that her assertions seem to be feeding into the culture of fear and would like to see the stats she refers to when she says youth crime is on the rise. And whose morals is she talking about? People come from a variety of countries and cultures, I hope she does not assume we are all on the same page about 'moral' issues, she may be more conservative while others are more liberal in their beliefs.
