Why Twitter and Facebook Are Not Good Instructional Tools

Why Twitter and Facebook Are Not Good Instructional Tools | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
Once an advocate for using social media applications and cell phones in class, this English teacher has changed his stance on the kinds of technology teachers should incorporate into their instruction.

Helena Capela's curator insight, March 16, 2013 6:02 AM

I agree with the author. To create with technology and do it creatively is more important than simply use it. Balance and know how to do it is also important.

Jarrod Johnson's curator insight, March 16, 2013 11:37 AM

Although the heading is misleading, the author has brought up some good points. Most teachers go through three phases:

 

1. Excitement to try out new technological gimmicks in the classroom.

2. Discouragement after the gimmick no longer interests the students.

3. Integration of effective technology to enhance the student's learning.

 

The comments are also a great read and echo this sentiment.
