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.

Six Powerful Motivations Driving Social Learning By Teens

Six Powerful Motivations Driving Social Learning By Teens | Education | Scoop.it
Today’s students often have more computing power in their pockets, on their mobile phones, than the PCs in the outdated computer lab–-but they are usually prevented from using it. The students’ personal learning networks of friends, forum users, Twitter followers and Facebook friends provide a rich source of knowledge gathering when they are at home, but use of such networks is excluded from their classrooms. It is little wonder that teachers experience immense frustration in trying to keep their students’ attention

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, March 22, 1:37 PM

I don't think we can blame terrible writing skills on Twitter. Twitter was founded in 2006 and student writing was terrible LONG before that. Twitter might have made the battle for decent writing skills more difficult, but it is not the sole contributor to the problem. More coming in a blog and not just because I need well over 140 characters.

Sharing: A Responsibility of the Modern Educator

Sharing: A Responsibility of the Modern Educator | Education | Scoop.it
The educator becomes a connected educator and through sharing, is an active participant and contributor to the connected educator movement.

Being a connected educator means connecting with other teachers to exchange ideas, improve your teaching practice, and in turn, make a change in education. It is only through being connected that we can collaborate and help to foster learning for the 21st century and beyond. (Being a Connected Educator)

The gap between what is and what could be in education is larger than it ever has  been.  I believe this is largely due to technology and the ability to establish global connections because of social media. Educators are more connected and more aware about education trends than any time in the history of public education.

Imagine how education could be transformed if all educators use their own personal, often passion-driven voices. The bottom line is that if any individual educator believes there are flaws in the education, that it can be done better, then s/he has the responsibility to say something. I reaching the point that I am starting to believe it is a moral imperative for educators to share what they know to be true with other educators; and with administrators, students’ families, community members, politicians . . . the larger global society.

We must break down the barriers and share our ideas to improve education.  It seems obvious that our national and state leaders have given our school system their best efforts and we still have too many children unsuccessful. Teachers are overworked, students over tested...we must creat a grassroots revolution to change the system for our children And their teachers.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, March 21, 1:26 AM

Of course, more and more teachers are using technology today, and any survey will show how active technology, or interactive technology is gaining precendance over static technology. Technology is not just the projector and the white board, rather it is much more than that. While the use of powerpoint and word might be on the decline, current use of technology is aimed at developing online surveys, blogs, google spreadsheets, and google docs. My mentor checks answer sheets, and thesis papers online. She does this for multiple drafts as competently as if she were checking notebooks! The effective use of technology however also depends on back end support from the organisation and institution that encourages the use of technology. This includes software and hardware support to teachers who adhere to the BYOD concept. I have known of organisations that restrict updates of operating systems and antivirus software because they feel that updates might eat into bandwidth. Unfortunately, the BYOD devices of the teachers started to give trouble as lack of updates and patches were not available on time.
