Teaching with Twitter – Please check your baggage at the door

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.

G+ is catching up big time for many reasons.  Among these reasons is the Hangout integration.  

 

We just facilitated a remote 1.5 day leadership development session with Hangouts and it was fantastic.  

 

Google is sticking to their strategy and their value is starting to win people over.  I was never a fan and, through valuable features, I am changing my perspective on the suite of offerings.

 

This is a relevant infographic.

The Pope is now on twitter! The first tweet from the summit of Mt Everest also happened recently.


News no longer breaks, it tweets.


In the best case scenario, Twitter is a great vehicle for connecting, sharing resources, and personal and professional learning. The key is separating the good from the bad.

5 Tips to Prevent Digital Burnout and Maintain Good Mental Health

5 Tips to Prevent Digital Burnout and Maintain Good Mental Health | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

The Internet's reach is so pervasive, it feels as though it has always been around. The reality is that the web is still in its infancy, and we don't really understand the risks it poses to our mental health. In fact, various experts, such as Larry D. Rosen, a psychologist and author of "iDisorder," believe that personal gadgets are making us mentally ill and are exacerbating other problems such as narcissism, depression or obsessive-compulsive disorder. Other mental health professionals have already identified disorders ranging from "Facebook depression" to "phantom vibration syndrome."

 

Realistically, most of us don't have the luxury of disconnecting from the Internet, particularly communication professionals whose work depends more and more on it.

 

However, there are various things you can do to curtail the negative effects it may have and prevent digital burnout.

Twitter Basics for Students

Twitter Basics for Students | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Have you heard of Twitter? Do you like to tweet? Most likely you’ve utilized social networking websites such as Facebook. So why would you consider using Twitter?

 

To enhance and increase connections with classmates – and potentially your instructors, as you may not find it easy to network with students on other sites and it is very unlikely that your instructors will appear on your friends list. What if I told you that this can help you develop an academic network and support system?

 

===> By the end of this post I believe you will want to give it a try and more importantly, you’ll likely find it can be an effective personal learning network. <===
