10 New Ways Twitter Is Changing The College Lecture

10 New Ways Twitter Is Changing The College Lecture | Integrating Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

Continuing our theme of using Twitter in education this week, we bring you a look at the ways Twitter is causing the current lecture model to evolve. The following analysis is brought to you by our content partners over at Online Universities.

 

Gone is the time when PowerPoint was the most impressive communication technology in the lecture hall. These days, students and professors enjoy the power of Twitter, a tool that allows for digital discussions to supplement and even guide lecture sessions. So how exactly is Twitter changing the college lecture as we know it?

 

Read on to find out about 10 different ways.

 

- Mobile devices are welcome in the lecture hall once again

- Lectures become a conversation

- Bashful students are speaking up

- More students get connected in large lectures

- Students stay engaged beyond the lecture

- Dorm discussions don’t happen as much anymore, and that’s OK

- There’s more information saved now than ever before

- Students think about lectures even when they’re not at school

- Review sessions happen anywhere

- Fewer classroom disruptions exist

Digital Citizenship

Digital Citizenship | Integrating Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

Digital Citizenship

 

Global Digital Citizenship is a critical element of any teaching program at any level. Our students are connected. Irrespective of the age of the student, they are wired. We are seeing devices reducing in cost, increasing in availability, and entering most classrooms and almost every school.

 

If you ask students a question, their first response is likely to be to “Google” it. If you go to a library for research, the students are most likely to use the computers.The digital world is a world almost universally without boundaries (Some countries do still attempt to restrict access, but these are usually the same countries that are restrictive with their people as well). Visiting, talking, chatting, and messaging are seamless, real time, and simple. The distance between two people is now measured in milliseconds rather than miles.

 

All of this—the speed, immediacy, accessibility, and ease of use—means that Global Digital Citizenship is paramount.

 

But how do we teach Global Digital Citizenship, a fluency that is critical at all levels of education?

Teachers Guide on The Use of Graphic Organizers in The Classroom

Teachers Guide on The Use of Graphic Organizers in The Classroom | Integrating Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

Gone are the days when planning and thinking were done mainly by pen and paper.Technology have made it pretty much easier to think in different other ways. Free mind mapping , brainstorming and concept mapping applications are ubiquitous online and more and more teachers are using them . The 21st century education is based , on a large part of it, on the visual output.

 

The benefits of graphic organizers in education

 

- Teachers can use graphic organizers to engage visual learners and help them organize their thoughts


- Graphic organizers help students make powerful connections between ideas and concepts


- They help students develop their convergent thinking by providing a framework for the development of new ideas through analysis, reflection and display.


- They also help students promote their divergent thinking by using such techniques as brianstorming to generate ideas.


- They can be used for developing vocabulary skills and improve reading, writing and communication skills.


- Students can easily learn new concepts and think in new novel ways using graphic organizers


- They help students focus on connections rather than words 

 

- Finally , graphic organizers can help both teachers and students develop creative and critical thinking skills.

Understanding the Value of Curation for Education: Nancy White

Understanding the Value of Curation for Education: Nancy White | Integrating Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

Robin Good: What does curation mean from an educational viewpoint? And what is the key difference between "collecting" and "curating".

Nancy White (@NancyW), a 21st Century Learning & Innovation Specialist and the author of Innovations in Education blog, has written an excellent article, dissecting the key characterizing traits of curation, as a valuable resource to create and share knowledge. 

 

She truly distills some key traits of curation in a way that is clear and comprehensible to anyone.

 

She writes: "The first thing I realized is that in order to have value-added benefits to curating information, the collector needs to move beyond just classifying the objects under a certain theme to deeper thinking through a) synthesis and b) evaluation of the collected items.

 

How are they connected?"

 

Excellent definition. 

 

And then she also frames perfectly the relevance of "context" for any meaningful curation project by writing: "I believe when we curate, organization moves beyond thematic to contextual – as we start to build knowledge and understanding with each new resource that we curate.

 

Themes have a common unifying element – but don’t necessarily explain the “why.”

 

Theme supports a central idea – Context allows the learner to determine why that idea (or in this case, resource) is important.

 

So, as collecting progresses into curating, context becomes essential to determine what to keep, and what to discard."

 

But there's a lot more insight distilled in this article as Nancy captures with elegance the difference between collecting for a personal interest and curating for a specific audience. 

 

She finally steals my full endorsement for this article by discretely inquirying how great a value it would be to allow students to "curate" the domains of interest they need to master.

 

Excellent. Highly recommended. 9/10

How can QR codes be used effectively in class?

 

As mobile learning and technology is more readily integrated within classroom settings, QR codes can be used as an interesting method to capture a student’s attention and make lesson material more interactive.

 

Quick response codes, also known as ‘QR’ codes, are simple, scannable images that are a form of barcode. By scanning a QR code image through a mobile device, information can be accessed including text, links, bookmarks and email addresses.

 

In the classroom, QR codes can be used in a variety of ways — from conducting treasure hunts to creating modern CVs. Below is a number of articles, tutorials and lesson plans designed to help educators.

Konstantinos Kalemis's comment, June 4, 2012 4:50 AM
One of the most effective ways the QR code could be used is in mail order catalogs. In the catalog it would have information on each of the products, pictures and then a QR code with a call to action to scan it. When scanned, the code would pull up a promotional video that explains the product further and shows examples of the product being used. When the video finishes, it will prompt the user to directly add the item to their shopping cart. Additionally, because the catalog could have the QR code link to a URL of their choice, they can track all scans and conversions to measure effectiveness and make necessary changes.
Other ways to use QR Codes:
• to assign homework assignments
• to Link to Important Forms
• to Give Feedback
• for Polls, Surveys, etc
In adult education, QR Codes may be used for examinations, certification and many other applications.
Because of their unusual design, the QR codes would certainly draw the viewers eye, the problem is, these codes are meant to be viewed (primarily but not exclusively) on a mobile phone. If they have a PDF to fill out, it would be much easier to download it to a computer than a mobile phone.
