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, 2016 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.

Why children need social media lessons | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it
Employers now routinely “screen” applicants’ online profiles before deciding to hire candidates. So for young people, who have grown up with social media and a “life online”, this can mean their childhood activity could influence a future employer’s recruitment decision.

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

Some of the limitations of textbooks are they tend to be very non-interactive, kind of impersonal, and they’re not very flexible in terms of regional differences. For all these reasons, a lot of teachers don’t use them anymore. 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.

10 Habits Worth Starting in the Classroom

10 Habits Worth Starting in the Classroom | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it
When we look at what research says about becoming better at something, two pieces of evidence stand out.

First, we must have clarity on what our goals are, and where we want to go or what we want to become.

Second, it is deliberate practice (combined with feedback loops) that increase the myelin in our brain and in turn help improve performance and growth.

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?
