On Ed Tech, We’re Asking the Wrong Question | Keep learning | Scoop.it

A study of Facebook use among university students, published last year, examined one way that social media use can help. The researchers found that student participation in an online social network may, in and of itself, lead to positive learning outcomes that could support the goals of retention and engagement in a university setting.

Triptico – an essential resource for the interactive whiteboard | Keep learning | Scoop.it

Because Triptico is an application that runs in your computer (it runs on Adobe Air, so it’s compatible with both Macs and PCs), it can be used with any make and model of interactive whiteboard. This and the fact that it is free makes Triptico an absolute must have for every teacher wishing to make better use of technology in the classroom to engage students and foster classroom participation.
