Using Twitter for Learning | EDTECH Elementary School | Scoop.it

"In the UK and other countries there are justified fears about negative effects of various social media with students under the age of 18.  On top of the distraction it provides there are more dangerous issues such as cyberbullying, privacy issues and the potential for abuse.  However, there are some simple rules that can be followed to make Twitter a useful addition to a school’s and teacher’s toolset."

Time to get serious about collaboration tools - WhaTech

Time to get serious about collaboration tools - WhaTech | EDTECH Elementary School | Scoop.it
Are you rather sceptical about the benefits of all these new fangled business collaboration tools, such as video conferencing, document sharing and in-house, business-oriented social media platforms? Perhaps you need to revise your opinions. A study, produced by Forbes Magazine and Cisco (admittedly a major provider of collaboration technologies) strongly suggests those organisation that have really embraced these technologies are reaping significant benefits - and not just internal efficiency gains.
