In a word, yes. In fact, they may be an administrator's most underutilized resource. Learn how schools are freeing them up to help students, faculty, and principals find the information they need.

12 Things Students Should Never Do on Social Media

12 Things Students Should Never Do on Social Media | SoHo  Library | Scoop.it

The last thing young people want is another set of rules. But these days, social media comes with great responsibility. The fact is, irresponsible social media conduct could potentially ruin your education and negatively impact your career, not to mention hurt others in the process. (And we’re not just talking kids, either.) But most of those consequences are preventable, often with just a little foresight.

6 Great Platforms Where Students Share Book Reviews and Reading Recommendations

6 Great Platforms Where Students Share Book Reviews and Reading Recommendations | SoHo  Library | Scoop.it

One of the best ways to get your students motivated about reading is to provide them with online platforms where they can meet other student readers and share their recommendations, reads, and book reviews. When students know that people other than their fellow mates or teachers can read and interact with what they post, they can show more engagement and interest .

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has been wading through some of these platforms and handpicked some of the best available online. All the websites mentioned below are student friendly and can be used with your students in the classroom. Check the list out

Low Cost Signage!

Low Cost Signage! | SoHo  Library | Scoop.it

My end-caps were extremely vanilla, with just the Dewey numbers.  After attending a webinar on how to use PowerPoint to make signs, etc.,  I did a quick and easy sign with the subjects students will find on each shelf.  Works better than a Wordle, because I could control where the words appeared.  (The sign is straight on the endcap, just crooked in my photo!)

 

Thanks to Kathie Maier for the idea!

Great Video Tutorials on Flipped Classroom

Great Video Tutorials on Flipped Classroom | SoHo  Library | Scoop.it

So you have decided to flip your classroom this year and invert your instruction method hoping to get more student engagement and boost their productivity levels. Well good thing  you are going to give Flipped Classroom a try but before that you need to make it clear to your students what this new method is all about and why not even explain it to their parents as well.

Social networking policy whiplash - Home - Doug Johnson's Blue Skunk Blog | SoHo  Library | Scoop.it

As educators, we have a professional image to uphold and how we conduct ourselves online impacts this image. As reported by the media, there have been instances of educators demonstrating professional misconduct while engaging in inappropriate dialogue about their schools and/or students or posting pictures and videos of themselves engaged in inappropriate activity online. Mistakenly, some educators feel that being online shields them from having their personal lives examined. But educators’ online identities are very public and can cause serious repercussions if their behavior is careless.
