Twitter and Facebook in the classroom is a great tool in reminding students and parents of homework, upcoming projects, and quizzes/tests to study for.  This tool engages parents in their child's education.  We even use this method along with mass text messages that shares the same information.

#twitterchat: Why Teachers Like Learning Models

#twitterchat: Why Teachers Like Learning Models | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it

"

"Recently, #cohort21 hosted a twitter chat on a topic near and dear to our hearts: learning models and frameworks.

We have our own ideas about what they’re so important, but this isn’t about us, is it?

This being 2014, the #twitterchat conversation, of course, quickly turned to SAMR and TPACK, and educators shared their favorite versions, how they used them, and what future needs in the space might be. Archived twitter chats make for wonderful quick reads, and can include some gems (the Starbucks analogy, for example), so, here you go. #twitterchat: Why Teachers Like Learning Models, all in one place."

What happens when you host a twitter chat the the topic turns to learning models and frameworks? Check out this post that takes a twitter chat that discussed this topic and then storified the discussion.

If you don't know about SAMR (check out the image above) or TPACK you may find posts in this Scoop.it on each (just type in the keyword). And you may find yourself participating in one of these twitter chats down the road!

How Do You Cite a Tweet in an Academic Paper?

How Do You Cite a Tweet in an Academic Paper? | Information Powerhouses | Scoop.it
The Modern Language Association likes to keep up with the times. As we all know, some information breaks first or only on Twitter and a good academic needs to be able to cite those sources. So, the MLA has devised a standard format that you should keep in mind.
