The A-Z Dictionary of Educational Twitter Hashtags | Edudemic

The A-Z Dictionary of Educational Twitter Hashtags | Edudemic | educational technology for teachers | Scoop.it

Whether you’re a new or seasoned Twitter user, you likely come across confusing hashtags that probably look like a bunch of nonsense.

First, What’s A Hashtag?

The # symbol, called a hashtag, is used to mark keyword or topic in a Tweet. Any Twitter user can categorize or follow topics with hashtags.Those hashtags (usually) mean something and are a great way to get a tweet to appear in search results or discussion monitoring.

For example, the popular #edchat hashtag is used by thousands of users every Tuesday. It makes it easy (sort of) for people to monitor what’s happening in the conversation rather than having to try and guess what topics you should search for. By having a conversation on Twitter using hashtags, you also make it easy for any other Twitter user to join in.

Set learning free in 100 words

Set learning free in 100 words | educational technology for teachers | Scoop.it

Throw away your planning and be the teacher you always should have been. Listen to your class, respond to what they need to push their learning forward. Assess their learning as you go, feedback to every learner. Try not to overplan, forget the detail and be confident in changing direction as and where learning takes you. Let the learners control the learning, give them opportunities to decide what they want to learn. Give them control to set their own learning agenda even if it means they only do Maths all day. Take back learning in your classroom.

 

 

Set learning free.

Humor: What do people think teachers do? | educational technology for teachers | Scoop.it

"There’s a meme going around that asks you to think about how you perceive various professions. From photographers to bellydancers to, yes, teachers. I thought the teacher one might be the most relevant to the Edudemic audience and wanted to share the meme here. I’ve also embedded a few more memes that I think you might enjoy. Hopefully they brighten your day and make you laugh a bit. Enjoy!"

8 Social Media Strategies for Your Classroom

8 Social Media Strategies for Your Classroom | educational technology for teachers | Scoop.it

Are you ready to bring social networking to your classroom? If you’re looking to make your classroom more relevant, connected, and meaningful to your students, it’s the best place to start. Study after study has confirmed the benefits of networking.  Besides the ubiquity factor, so much of social networking is free. It’s easy to forget how amazing that is. There are only two premium products that I would recommend, and those are Jing and Animoto. Both are about 25 dollars a year, but what they bring to you is impressive. More on both of those shortly.

Rings a bell? You know you've been there. I remember back in the days, when a Power Point presentation, a white screen, a huge CPU and a projector were the coolest thing around, I had this practicum doctor as a Biology teacher who ran into a tech problem and would simply cancel the session for that day.
