Nik Peachey: How I use social media for my professional development

Nik Peachey: How I use social media for my professional development | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

The issue of how we use social media for our own development as teachers and as digitally skilled individuals is of vital importance, not just because it can enable us to keep developing as teachers through the content, ideas, resources and above all people it gives us access to, but also because the way we use digital media for our own development should guide and influence the way we use it with our students and build their digital literacies and communication skills.

Laura Montenegro's curator insight, September 10, 11:05 PM
Talking about professional development, it is important to look always for ways in order to improve our study and profesional skills as teachers and as digital individuals. With this social media can provides us athentic input and materials such as articles, games, books, etc. For our own development and it is also proved that it can guide and influence students perseptions and interests. The autor divided social media into three different sections: Information in ( the input, links and places where to find information), information processing ( the process of learning and capture more and more information) and finally, information out (when you share what you've learned). In my opinion it is very important to share our results because in this way we are going to realize what we really learn and ow we did it, also to understand how our learning process works and how it does not.

3 Non Negotiables When Teaching Students to Evaluate Their Own Learning | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

Pinterest boasts more than 1,000 ideas about how students can self-evaluate their own learning. My Google search on the same topic offered six million results. Clearly, the resources are plentiful. But just because students can doesn’t mean they will. 


How can we motivate students to want to evaluate their own learning? And how can we help them do this successfully?

27 Ways to Reflect on Your Teaching

27 Ways to Reflect on Your Teaching | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

Reflecting should occur on a continual basis—before, during and after instruction to cherish the unforgettable moments, to learn from mistakes or disappointments, and most importantly, to set goals for the next chapter in this adventure we call life. In education, we call these types of behaviors “reflective practice”, or the manner in which teachers step back and evaluate the learning environment. As in any other profession, we assess what was successful, what didn’t work as planned and/or what needs to be adjusted the next time—all in an effort to improve our craft. ...

Digital portfolios are something that are really starting to take off in schools. There are different software programs that will make “portfolios” easy to share, yet do we truly embrace the power that a digital portfolio can bring into our schools?

Five storytelling techniques to support literacy in the classroom | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

Storytelling in the classroom can be a powerful way to support literacy. Children can be so absorbed in the tale, they are inspired to retell what they’ve heard to others, motivated to read it for themselves and encouraged to take it further and write their own parts or versions. The National Literacy Trust advocates that ‘speaking and listening skills underpin all learning’.

How Teacher-Created Free Online Resources Are Changing the Classroom

How Teacher-Created Free Online Resources Are Changing the Classroom | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

Instead, they create their own curriculum, in collaboration with other teachers, out of materials on the internet and adapted to the needs of their classrooms.
