Why Twitter and Facebook Are Not Good Instructional Tools

Why Twitter and Facebook Are Not Good Instructional Tools | ICT Integration in Australian Schools | Scoop.it
Once an advocate for using social media applications and cell phones in class, this English teacher has changed his stance on the kinds of technology teachers should incorporate into their instruction.

Via Nik Peachey
Jarrod Johnson's insight:

Although the heading is misleading, the author has brought up some good points. Most teachers go through three phases:

 

1. Excitement to try out new technological gimmicks in the classroom.

2. Discouragement after the gimmick no longer interests the students.

3. Integration of effective technology to enhance the student's learning.

 

The comments are also a great read and echo this sentiment.

I agree with you and the author. To create with technology and do it creatively is more important than simply use it. Balance and know how to do it is the most important.

How Students Benefit From Social Media #infographic | ICT Integration in Australian Schools | Scoop.it
Social Media has fast become part of many people's every day lives. With so much new technology being introduced today, there are many benefits and reasons for students to be using social media on a daily basis.

Social Networks are being utilized by students not to just talk to their friends or share the cutest cat video they can find, but to make use of these networks to develop and enhance the student lifestyle. Many students are using websites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to market the

The Learning Edge of Game Design | GlassLab Games | ICT Integration in Australian Schools | Scoop.it

Learning games are still poised right before their prime. Not a lot of people really understand how powerful they can be yet. This makes funding challenging, in no small part because what seems like luxury — polish, iteration, playtesting — is in fact crucial for the development of effective games of any kind, and these things don’t come cheap. But if what we want to do is learn about how to advance game design itself, there is no better place to be.

Savvy broadcast and media companies are putting more emphasis on social networks to keep the public informed.  Recent studies have shown that the "younger generation" will keep up with the news and public events if they are presented well on social media.  Even print outlets such as newspapers and magazines are publishing digital editions to appeal to younger audiences equipped with social media tools.  The communications future has arrived!  Aloha, Russ.

(From the article): Presentations have an important place in the corporate world. Whether presenting product releases or quarterly year reports, a nicely designed presentation captivates the audience. It increases the audience’s interaction and interest.  A well weaved narration of information in form of a presentation, can instill life to a plain and boring topic as well.

Apart from the corporate world, presentations are used in education as well. Teachers use presentations to deliver information that is successfully incorporated with videos and pictures, thus grabbing the attention of the students and enriching the learning process along the way.

While its hard to replace professional presentation designers, here is a list of some powerful tools that would help you to create interactive presentations in case of the absence of professional help.

So we thought we’d start an ongoing collection–that is, one that is updated to reflect trends and changes–of the best resources for teaching with the iPad.

This will include resources from all of the best sources, from Apple’s own stuff to TeachThought to edutopia to MindShift to DMLCentral to Jackie Gerstein and more. We can update it, or make it a wiki to crowdsource the process, or you can add suggestions in the comments below. Based on the activity of the comments, and the sharing of the post, we’ll decide how to handle it moving forward.
