Twitter Basics for Students

Twitter Basics for Students | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Have you heard of Twitter? Do you like to tweet? Most likely you’ve utilized social networking websites such as Facebook. So why would you consider using Twitter?

 

To enhance and increase connections with classmates – and potentially your instructors, as you may not find it easy to network with students on other sites and it is very unlikely that your instructors will appear on your friends list. What if I told you that this can help you develop an academic network and support system?

 

===> By the end of this post I believe you will want to give it a try and more importantly, you’ll likely find it can be an effective personal learning network. <===

Supporting Innovative Teachers as Knowledge Generators

Supporting Innovative Teachers as Knowledge Generators | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

We need to start envisioning our teachers as knowledge generators and creative professionals whom we trust to innovate and implement unorthodox ideas that might transform teaching and learning. The time has come to reward innovation among our best and most creative teachers. They should be given the time and resources to reflect on their practice, experiment with new ideas, and implement strategies to more effectively engage learners.

College requirements: Notebooks, textbooks and iPads?

College requirements: Notebooks, textbooks and iPads? | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
FLINT, Michigan — It wasn’t the type of requirement college freshman Megan Rheingans expected to find on her syllabus.

 

Some of the hottest tech gadgets found on college students’ Christmas wish lists are ending up on their school shopping lists instead.


Several colleges, including Central Michigan University where Rheingans attends, are using the latest tech tools as a counterpart to traditional textbooks.

A new Google Docs

A new Google Docs | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

They say a house is only as good as its foundation, and we believe the same holds true for web applications like Google Docs.

 

With our old foundation, we could continue delivering most features you wanted quickly, but over time it became clear that some just weren’t possible. So we decided to rebuild the underlying infrastructure of Docs to give us greater flexibility, improved performance and a better platform for developing new features quickly.

 

Today, we’re pleased to announce preview versions of the new Google document and spreadsheet editors and a new standalone drawings editor, all built with an even greater focus on speed and collaboration. To get a taste of what’s new today, check out our video:

Overloaded with information, students need critical thinking skills - University World News

Overloaded with information, students need critical thinking skills - University World News | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

A great post by Adam Peck, dean of student affairs at Stephen F Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas.

 

"Students today have unprecedented access to information. According to educator Karl Fisch, in one week of reading The New York Times, an individual will encounter more information than people in the 18th century would have had access to during the entire course of their lives.

 

It is not surprising that in this atmosphere, students appear to be growing increasingly dogmatic and are less able to engage in civil discourse with others with whom they disagree. Perhaps this is because they cannot accurately explain what people who oppose them actually believe. In truth, they often lack consistency in their own beliefs as well.......

 

In summary, despite the tremendous educational potential of the information age, students seem to be less prepared to critically evaluate information or determine and defend what they believe. Colleges and universities need to find ways to leverage this resource to create the kind of learning demanded by our changing times."

How to Teach Online With Screensharing and Screencasts

How to Teach Online With Screensharing and Screencasts | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Sharing ideas visually is no new concept. A hundred years ago, teachers used chalkboards. Then, with the invention of the smelly, dry erase marker, we upgraded our boardrooms and classrooms with shiny whiteboards.

 

Then along came old fashion projectors, and we wrote on clear plastic, shining the ideas up on a pull-down screen. Years later, the projector has gone the way of the chalkboard though, because now we have digital projectors! “But wait!!” you say. “What about SMART Boards?!”
