Traveloteacher: 21st century skills and eTwinning | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

It was a great honour for me to be one of the invited speakers at the national eTwinning conference, held in Zagreb, on Friday 26th. Even more so, when among the invited speakers is Bart Verswijvel, who is not only my co-host of the virtual TeachMeets and StudentsMeets, but also one of the best and most confident speakers who I have ever listened to (and I've listened to many, many distinguished speakers worldwide).

Social Content Curation: An Introductory Guide for Teachers and Students

Social Content Curation: An Introductory Guide for Teachers and Students | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Robin Good: "7 Things You Should Know About Social Content Curation" is a technology brief from Educause which aims to introduce, explain and illustrate the emerging social curation trend and why it is relevant to teaching and learning.

 

From the official abstract: "An emerging class of online tools, including Pinterest, Scoop.it, EduClipper, and others, allows users to quickly and easily gather, organize, and share collections of online resources, particularly visual content.


These applications make it easy to collect and post disparate bits of content, providing visual groupings at a glance that can reveal important patterns.


In academic settings, they can facilitate more visual thinking and discussion among students while providing a means to share collections of online content."



Informative. Good introductory text. 7/10

Twitter Hashtags In The Classroom

Twitter Hashtags In The Classroom | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

For the last couple of years that I have been on Twitter, I have seen the value of using a hashtag to connect and share ideas between educators all around the world. This shared learning has made my Twitter stream a lot easier to filter so I can find stuff that is more applicable to some of the work I am doing. I am never limited to that “stream”, but it is something that I go to often. For administrators, I have used #cpchat to share and find learning shared by and for school and division administrators. For our own school division, the hashtag #psd70 has been a great way to share articles amongst our own school division, while also connecting an area that is pretty large geographically. As the year progresses, we are seeing more educators in our division use this hashtag as a way to share their work while also using it as a “bat signal” to ask for help. For my own learning, these are two main hastags that I have used on a consistent basis.
