Kathleen Cercone's curator insight, May 23, 2013 7:22 AM

YouTube has progressed beyond cat videos. Twitter is more than just sharing what you’re eating for dinner. All of the major social networks are keystones of our online life and make up a big portion of who we are. So it’s no surprise that there are now guidelines on how to cite social media using the MLA and APA standards. In fact, I’m surprised it’s taken this long to see this topic hit the mainstream.

Chris Carter's curator insight, May 22, 2013 8:12 PM

The specialty high school in Texas recently implemented a 1:1 iPad initiative, and the OER pilot program is intended to help cut costs while providing students with access to high-quality, easily updatable learning resources on their iPads. The district selected a free, Web-based solution, Net Texts, to provide teachers with access to a library of more than 21,000 free OER learning resources from Curriki, Khan Academy, and several universities and colleges.

The idea of having a class 'searcher' is brilliant!  This rotating responsibility gives students a chance to practice their skills in the classroom without having to add to the curriculum.

Meryl Jaffe, PhD's comment, May 29, 2013 7:57 AM
