20 Must-Have Educational Resources For All Teachers | Edudemic

20 Must-Have Educational Resources For All Teachers | Edudemic | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Edudemic often features posts providing a list of top resources for a particular category. Recently, the site gettingsmart.com posted the names of the LAUNCHedu finalists chosen by the SXSWedu® Conference, offering even more resources for the Edudemic staff to consider! On March 7, 2012, they will choose winners after a full day of presentations by the finalists.

There are so many sites and programs on the Internet already, but this competition just goes to show that the need for educational resources is still great. Necessity is the mother of invention, they say. The cliche works because it is true. While we wait to find out which of the lucky finalists will win the SXSWedu® Conference competition, why not try to figure out which resources we would include in a top 20 list?

10 Creative Ways to Introduce Yourself to Your Students

10 Creative Ways to Introduce Yourself to Your Students | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

We once heard of a teacher who dressed up in her best bell bottoms and discoed her way into her classroom on the first day with Gloria Gaynor blasting from the speakers. Elaborate, but memorable—and if you decide to go that route, please send us a video so we can post it on our Facebook page for all the world to see. Of course, there are plenty of creative ways to introduce yourself to students that don't involve you squeezing into your 1970s pants or looking like a fool. Here are ten fun ideas:

The Pinterest For Education: 3 Big Updates To Learnist You Should Know About | Edudemic

The Pinterest For Education: 3 Big Updates To Learnist You Should Know About | Edudemic | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

I’ve been using Learnist as a beta tester for the last few months and have grown to love it. What is Learnist, you ask? It’s basically a new way to share and learn using some of the most popular methods found on social networks today. There’s a Pinterest-style stream, lotsa Facebook-style features, and the ability to follow like on Twitter.

After you check out the site, you’ll see that it’s a whole like Pinterest. While it remains to be seen if Learnist can compete with the Education category on Pinterest, it’s great to see this type of competition.

Teachers Easy Guide to Social Learning

Teachers Easy Guide to Social Learning | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Bandura has set the floor for a new conception of learning as a social process where there is interaction and mindful observation as opposed to the mechanistic view of learning advocated by behaviourism. When Bandura started formulating his Social Learning Theory, there was nothing called web 2.0 tools or online social media and now that there is an abundance of such tools, social learning has even acquired a new dimension and is widely expanded to engulf many other forms of learning including e-learning, distance-learning, peer-to-peer learning, to mention but a few.
