"How important do you think it is for teachers to use educational technologies in the classroom? During this school year, how often do you or your students use [insert type of educational technology] in your classroom? What are the biggest challenges to integrating educational technologies in schools?

These were some of the questions asked in a national online survey of teachers and administrators, conducted for Common Sense Media's Graphite by Harris Interactive in May 2013. And here are some of the answers from the survey."

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

Un insegnante ha il ruolo di un mentore, è un modello, sa aiutare i ragazzi nelle difficoltà e li incoraggia a seguire i loro sogni... A chi di voi è capitata la fortuna di conoscerne almeno uno/a nella vita?

Darleana McHenry's curator insight, September 11, 2013 11:56 PM

I had the opportunity to tell my first grade teacher thank you 5 years ago. She actually had kept my first grade picture all these years. My teachers were great and school was my favorite place and I excelled there. So thanks to all the teachers that I did not get to thank. :-)
