Can Twitter Replace Traditional Professional Development ? | Mind/Shift

Can Twitter Replace Traditional Professional Development ? | Mind/Shift | EDTECH ~ ICT | Thinking, Tips & Tools - the Internet Tracks & Trails  -Besides... QUESTIONING them all ! | Scoop.it

"Twitter and Facebook might soon replace traditional professional development for teachers. Instead of enduring hours-long workshops a few times a year, teachers could reach out to peers on the Internet in real time for advice on things like planning a lesson (or salvaging a lesson that’s going wrong), overcoming classroom management problems, or helping students with disabilities.

A Digital Back-to-School Checklist | NYTimes | EDTECH ~ ICT | Thinking, Tips & Tools - the Internet Tracks & Trails  -Besides... QUESTIONING them all ! | Scoop.it

"[...] At one time, preparing children for school required buying new clothes and a fresh set of pencils. These days, your child is likely to need Internet access and a laptop even more than a composition notebook.

For parents, the choices can be overwhelming — and expensive. Here are some tips to get started. [...]"

 

Monica MIRZA's insight:

I suggest you forget about the mentioned products and their corresponding trademarks... merely consider their kind and category. As for the laptop : one worth around $ 350 should do, and 500 Go surely enough for its HDD... no matter it's a To-something or a Sam-otherthing !

Nah... actually, the brand does matter. But let's not walk backwards : first we've got to decide WHAT we need (so... what for ?)  -and THEN, which company makes it best... for a price we can afford  :-)

Amazon - L’irrésistible ascension d’un prédateur | EDTECH ~ ICT | Thinking, Tips & Tools - the Internet Tracks & Trails  -Besides... QUESTIONING them all ! | Scoop.it

"En inventant la librairie en ligne, Jeff Bezos a facilité l’accès au livre. Et asphyxié les libraires. En banalisant l’e-book, il a réinventé la lecture. Et entamé un dangereux bras de fer avec les éditeurs. L’agressivité commerciale d’Amazon et sa superpuissance sur le marché du livre effraient. Au moment où la multinationale devient elle-même maison d’édition, beaucoup se demandent si la littérature de qualité survivra à ce rouleau compresseur."
