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.

Free Technology for Teachers: Type Rocket - A Quick Game for Typing Practice | Elementary Tech Integration | Scoop.it
"Type Rocket is a free typing game from ABCya that Joanne Villis reminded me of in one of her recent posts. Type Rocket is a sixty second game in which students make fireworks explode by typing the letters that appear on the rockets in the games. In the sixty second span of the game students try to correctly type as many letters as they possibly can. The rockets speed up as the game progresses."

How to Use Wild Hog Questions in the Classroom | Edutopia.org

How to Use Wild Hog Questions in the Classroom | Edutopia.org | Elementary Tech Integration | Scoop.it
Eighty percent of what we do as learning engineers is ask questions. Because this is such a big part of what we do to inspire learning, we should do it really well! I began thinking about the research I have done that says that we have a long way to go before we can say that we ask questions really well, and then I thought of the wild hogs in Texas. There are millions of them. They are definitely not endangered and are frankly on the nuisance list. What if the way we ask questions was as tenacious, energetic and prolific as the wild hogs?That's when I came up with the acronym WILD HOG for classroom questions. It stands for: Written Intentionally for Learning Depth and Higher Order Genius. (I've got to also give credit to my family for helping me come up with this.)What I have seen in my own professional career as a learning engineer is that most of my questions to students fall into two categories: 1) off the cuff, (in Texas we would say "shot from the hip") and, 2) mostly low-level, knowledge-based questions. I would like to say that I am proficient in both of these strategies, but I am painfully aware that these two strategies are not as effective as I would like them to be. It is a chore to keep everyone attentive, discipline problems emerge, and students daydream and doodle while I try to pull information out of them one at a time. This makes me wonder why I continue to use them if they are not effective? The answer is that they are easy and take no prior effort. That is where WILD HOG Questions come into play.Click headline to read more--
