Melita Ryland's curator insight, April 24, 2013 10:28 PM

Great for critical thinking because in twitter you only have so many characters so you will have to decide what is the important info you are trying to say in limited space...

 

Here are some examples for Hashtag usage in the classroom.

1. Class Discussions

2. Use them to aggregate discussion on content

3. Use them as a class messaging system

4. Use them for mentoring

5. Keep them brief

6. Create them early

7. Be strategic

Anne Whaits's curator insight, January 31, 2013 4:19 PM

"Four units comprise the curriculum resources. Each unit consists of standalone yet complementary lesson plans that play off a creative rights scenario presented through a case study.

Each unit has 4-6 of these project-oriented activities, one of which serves as the culminating lesson for the unit. Guiding questions help set the expectation for what students learn, and pre/post assessments establish baseline knowledge to gauge student learning. Modification and Extension suggestions recommend ways to abridge or expand the activities within the unit, and provide tips for engaging parents and peers outside of the classroom.

You’ll have to register to download the actual units (PDF format)."

Teachers Embrace Digital Learning Strategies | MindShift | High School Education and Social Media | Scoop.it

Today is the second annual Digital Learning Day, designated to bring attention to the benefits of technology for learning. As part of the effort, PBS LearningMedia has released a survey showing that 74 percent of teachers say educational technology benefits their classroom in many ways, including the ability to reinforce and expand content, motivate students, and respond to a variety of learning styles. Given these numbers, and despite increasing access, it’s not surprising that 68 percent of teachers still want more access to technology in the classroom. That number goes up to 75 percent of teachers in low-income schools.   Read more in this Mindshift article, with infographic on digital learning.

New Report Highlights School Libraries' Promotion of Digital Literacy

New Report Highlights School Libraries' Promotion of Digital Literacy | High School Education and Social Media | Scoop.it

“School libraries always have been interdisciplinary spaces deeply connected to the curriculum, instrumental in developing students' research and information literacy skills, and committed to creating an environment of free reading that supports lifelong learning and curiosity. These traditional roles and strengths are increasingly critical as society faces a deluge of digital information, and the lines between content user and content creator are blurred and even actively deconstructed.”

100 Things Kids Will Miss ( if they don't have a Teacher Librarian in their school) | High School Education and Social Media | Scoop.it

To start with...

1.Books that are professionally selected to meet school and personal needs.

2.Equitable access to computers and other forms of technology.

3.Someone to talk to and someone who listens – the school librarian.

4.A place to get help when they need it. A place to assemble with their friends openly
