5 Ways Twitter Strengthens A School’s Learning Community | Connected Principals | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
June 1, 2012 By Joe Mazza

Cross-posted at eFACE Today

This year, our K-6 staff began learning in a new virtual way using Twitter. After a couple staff in-service trainings and after school workshops, parents and teachers ventured into this new educational Twitterverse. As we enter the final week of school, I’d like to share it’s initial impact on teaching and learning from my principal’s lens.

Our staff’s “learning by Twitter” has occurred in multiple formats this school year:

Culture Shift: Teaching in a Learner-Centered Environment Powered by Digital Learning

Culture Shift: Teaching in a Learner-Centered Environment Powered by Digital Learning | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

"The report, Culture Shift: Teaching in a Learner-Centered Environment Powered by Digital Learning, examines the support that educators and schools will require to implement genuine teaching practices that are personalized for each student. Digital learning, the report argues, can be a major strategy for enabling teachers to meet varied students’ needs while also supporting necessary cultural shifts in teaching.

 

According to the report, learner-centered instruction is personalized, rigorous, and based on college- and career-ready expectations. It is also collaborative, relevant, and flexible, with learning taking place anytime or anywhere. A true shift to a learner-centered environment powered by effective technology requires a strong school culture that embodies, encourages, and focuses on the needs of each student, the report argues. Specifically, Culture Shift maintains that the integration of technology and digital learning, school leadership, and changes in the teaching profession are critical to the transition to this new culture."

Content Curation Tool Clipboard Opens To All Adding New Feature Boards

Content Curation Tool Clipboard Opens To All Adding New Feature Boards | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: I "scooped" this service called Clipboard when it was in private beta, October 15, 2011:

 http://www.scoop.it/t/social-media-content-curation/p/548503878/new-powerful-curation-tool-clipboard-saves-pieces-of-web-pages

Today Clipboard, that allows users to save parts of Web pages, is no longer in private beta.

 

From review on The Next Web:

"Clipboard was founded by Gary Flake, who previously founded Microsoft’s Live Labs, Yahoo Research.

 

Flake sees Clipboard as a service closer to Dropbox, then he does Pinterest. While Pinterest is more for vanity sharing, his company is all about capturing the important parts of the web for your own purposes, whether you want to keep your clips private or share them with others.

 

Along with coming out of beta, the site has launched its own feature called “boards”, which Flake tells me was the original concept for the site. Users can now put together all of the things that they clip into a Pinterest-style board and share them publicly or just with specific people.

 

By using Clipboard, you can not only share links, you can share the actual context of what interested you in the first place, with the code from the page completely intact. So if you wanted to clip an IMDB page, all of the links to the actor pages would remain. This beats the current Pinterest experience of simply grabbing an image..."

Clipboard is a fantastic tool. One of my favorite for now. I don't see the point of Pinterest.
With Clipboard we grab all what we want. Almost perfect.
