10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Education | Scoop.it

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction. Searching for articles on this topic , I came across Doug Johnson's post on the 10 social media competencies for teachers [http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/blue-skunk-blog/2010/7/31/top-ten-social-media-competencies-for-teachers.html ]. I like the competencies Doug included and decided to make an infographic featuring all of these skills.  Have a look and share with your colleagues.

Rockfig offers a teachers, students and parent the opportunity to curate carefully find, curate and share, (Secondary)  education resources including web pages, videos and interactive media. Digital resources on Rockfig are very carefully targeted towards specific age groups and subject disciplnes as determined by the English National Curriculum and Exam boards.


Although this may seem quite a narrow focus, I think it is also Rockfigs  strength - it will appeal to many teachers through the ease of navigation in order to quickly discover clearly categorised resources. The clean and deceptively simple user interface will appeal to busy teachers, whilst the easy to use social media tools which include personal collections, rating and comments are likely to encourage more teachers to begin to curate and share resources for everyones benefit.

Tony Parkin's curator insight, December 19, 2013 12:50 AM

This interesting beta from an experienced team aims to bring the best of curation, social media and web 2.0 to the world  of educational resource banks

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool

Using Book Creator as an Assessment Tool | Education | Scoop.it

Book creator has probably been the app I have used most, in my teaching, with pupils and in my training. The blank canvas aspect means it can be used across the whole curriculum and the addition of the pen tool in the last few weeks has added to that.

 

We use Showbie at school for pupils to share their work, including books made with Book Creator from the iPads and home to the teachers for assessment. Recently, we have used both the Pen Tool and Record feature to give feedback on the pupils' eBooks. The pupils send their books using Showbie and the teacher opens them up on his/her iPad. They can then annotate with their voice, pen and text. The book can then be sent back to the pupils using Showbie. The pupil can either change the original book and delete the annotated one or change the annotated book and delete the original.

 

The screenshot shows a book of a Science experiment. The teacher can annotate with arrows but also add audio feedback. All elements of Book Creator can be deleted so the pupil can restore any annotated book to the original.

 

This is obviously not a new idea but the pen tool has certainly made this quicker in a widely used app such as Book Creator.

Mozilla Open Badges 101: Nov 20 webinar

Mozilla's Open Badges is a new system for credentialing and accreditation that makes it possible for learners everywhere to get recognition for lifelong learning of all kinds through digital badges, and then collect and share those badges across the Web for real results like jobs. But what does this mean for your organization? And how do you get started?

David Bramley's curator insight, December 3, 2013 2:31 PM

There is an increasing gap between the knowledge and skills that education systems are providing and what employers say they want.  In my experience, education has a long lead in time...planned changes can take 18 months to reach the 'chalk face', whilst changes in skills requirements are a fact of life!

 

Alternative credentialing systems like Open Badges are a way of recognising skills and achievements in a flexible and responsive way.  If you are new to Open Badges this is a great place to start.  There are a series of webnars on developing Open Badges accessible from the post
