I Scooped this from "iTeach with Technology" blog. Karen Ogen is the author there, but she got it from David Kapuler's blog, "Technology Tidbits."  CreatorVerse looks like a niche which hadn't been filled. Physics and Art! Linden Labs develops games, but has stepped out with more collaborative "gaming."

I love being an educator, but many educators I know are very jaded about the system and all the 'other junk' that gets in the way of them doing what they truly love.  This is an insightful critique of problems in the system today that make educators want to pull their hair out.  I'm not giving up, but that doesn't mean I think that the system is wonderful for students, teachers or parents.

25 Reading Strategies That Work In Every Content Area - TeachThought | Educated | Scoop.it

"Reading is reading. By understanding that letters make sounds, we can blend those sounds together to make whole sounds that symbolize meaning we can all exchange with one another.

 

Without getting too Platonic about it all, reading doesn’t change simply because you’re reading a text from another content area. Only sometimes it does.'

10 Pros And Cons Of A Flipped Classroom

Via Seth Dixon
more...
Seth Dixon's curator insight, December 13, 2013 9:21 PM

The Pros

1. Students have more control

2. It promotes student-centered learning and collaboration

3. Lessons and content are more accessible

4. Access = easier for parents to see what’s going on

5. It can be more efficient

The Cons

1. It can create or exacerbate a digital divide

2. It relies on preparation and trust

3. There is significant work on the front-end

4. Not naturally a test-prep form of learning

5. Time in front of screens–instead of people and places–is increased


Using social media or other digital tools is not for all teachers and nor is it for all classrooms.  Given your teaching style, the digital fluency of students and the technological support of your administration, you can then successful weigh the options that are available.

It Is Not About the Gadgets - Why Every Teacher Should Have to Integrate Tech Into Their Classroom

It Is Not About the Gadgets - Why Every Teacher Should Have to Integrate Tech Into Their Classroom | Educated | Scoop.it

"I once sat on an interview committee in which the candidate proudly proclaimed that to integrate technology her students would use word processors and publish their work in a monthly book.  My toes instantly curled.  It wasn’t so much that she had used the words “word processor” but rather that she thought tech integration meant to have students type on a computer and then publish their work, that that would make them ready for this century of jobs.  So a couple of things come to mind whenever we discuss tech integration in schools."

"Created by the same team behind  ‘Zombies, Run’ comes this superb augmented reality fitness adventure. The Walk places you at the scene of a bomb explosion in Inverness station, and you’re given a package that could save the world. To stay alive, you’ll need to walk the length of the UK. The Walk is more than just a great pedometer/step counter — it’s a way to turn walking into a journey, a challenge, and a rip-roaring adventure.  A perfect addition to any classroom or as motivation for an apathetic student cohort. I will be recommending this to my Year 12 students to encourage Active Transport options."

Although social media may have its down falls but now schools are jumping on board and using social media to engage students in their classes. I mean its not a bad idea you know they are going to be on it anyways so if you send updates for class on those social media sights at least you know they will defintely see it and there will be no excuses.
