Adapt for Educational! This is great advice for building your PLN!

 

Suggestion: Don't ask an OBVIOUS question just to get someone to reply to a Tweet or an email. Do your homework.  Ex. For anyone who reads my Tweets or my  blog asking how I got my avatars seems lazy or inattentive. I've blogged, Tweeted, & written extensively on Avatar Generators.

 

Rather, ask what's your favourite use for an avatar? That's a creative question that starts a conversation that's not giving me extra work repeating myself (OK, I'm admittedly lazy!)

 

What gets me to follow you on Twitter? People who RT me & add their 2 cents in a smart funny way. People who I see don't ONLY RT but also share interesting stuff and share their work shamelessy & generously are most likely to get me to follow them. Those who complain or whine will not be followed. Who wants to talk to a Debbie downer at at party, right? Those who are positive, encourraging, optimistic, & fun! That's who I want to socialize with, don't forget the SOCIAL in social networking. Hey wait, this would be a good blog post, right?

 

Hmmm [deftly adds to her "must to post sugggestion draft folder"]

A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills

A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills | lärresurser | Scoop.it

Disconnects between policy mandates/supports and desired practice were found in most of the schools and all of the systems in our sample. For example, teachers were often being asked to innovate while being incented and judged solely by measures of the facts that students had acquired through traditional means, or given ICT to use without related curricular materials and models for ways to use it powerfully and effectively in subject matter learning. It was rare that teachers experienced standards, curriculum, professional development, assessments, and incentives that all aligned to support the development of students’ 21st century skills.

Many clear points within the article...Education is messy.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 11, 2013 9:18 AM

It is not the desired practice which is disconnected, but more an issue of did policy makers actually go into classrooms and have conversations with teachers.

Free Technology for Teachers: Learn a Language On the Go With Duolingo Mobile Apps

Free Technology for Teachers: Learn a Language On the Go With Duolingo Mobile Apps | lärresurser | Scoop.it

"On the first day of the year I reviewed the free language learning service Duolingo  http://www.duolingo.com/. To learn a new language on Duolingo you read, listen to, and translate words and phrases. For example if I want to learn Spanish I'll be shown Spanish words with translations. I can can hear the words pronounced too. Then to practice I type and or speak translations. The activities start out with simple words and phrases. As I become more proficient, Duolingo gives me more challenging phrases. To help me track my progress Duolingo awards me point and virtual badges."

Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners: Digital Tools to Collaborate and Design a Digital Learning Opportunity for Students | lärresurser | Scoop.it

Yesterday I created an interactive image to demonstrate how easy it is to engage in collaborative leaving with ThingLink. If you explore the live image, you will discover the Padlet online board that is being used to assemble collaborator's thoughts. I've pulled some of the ideas together and have been adding them to the ThingLink to define the song through multimedia. Now I am digging deeper to connect standards and design a student driven learning experience.
