" CELL PHONES IN THE CL A SSROOM: A BOON OR BLIGHT?
It’s a question many educators are facing these days. The Common Core State Standards call for students to develop digital media and technology skills. One way to help them reach that goal: incorporate gadgets they’re already familiar with — cell phones, tablets, and smartphones — into their learning environment. “The big potential with mobile is that it really is the primary portal for social communication right now,” says Mimi Ito, a cultural anthropologist in the departments of anthropology and informatics at the University of
California Irvine and John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation chair in Digital Media and Learning. “Young people learn best when it’s relevant to them, when there’s social connection tied to it, and when they actually have a personal interest.” "

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators | iBooks Author info | Scoop.it

TWITTER TRANSFORMS EDUCATORS


Before the advent of Twitter, most educators I know had limited opportunities to collaborate with colleagues outside their building. Some subscribed to listservs or participated in online forums, but these outlets lacked critical mass; teachers also networked at in-person conferences and training sessions, but these isolated events didn't provide ongoing support.


Enter Twitter. I've heard many educators say that Twitter is the most effective way to collaborate and that they've learned more with Twitter than they have from years of formal professional development.

Here are some of the specific ways educators are using Twitter to collaborate:

How to Make an iBook | Mac|Life

How to Make an iBook | Mac|Life | iBooks Author info | Scoop.it

Not long ago, writers were entirely at the mercy of the picky publishers who stood between an author and his or her potential readership. But thanks to the rise of digital books and open publishing platforms like Apple’s iBookstore, anyone can get their stuff out there and have a shot at finding an audience. And with the added interactivity of the iBooks format, authors can raise their books to a new kind of next-generation reading experience. You’d think that producing such a book would require high-level programming skills, but no--Apple has taken its trademark approach to empowering the masses with easy creation tools to digital bookmaking with iBooks Author (Mac App Store, free).
