Does (the Use of)Twitter Improve Education?

Does (the Use of)Twitter Improve Education? | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"There has been post after post acknowledging how educators love Twitter while also encouraging others to use it themselves. With that though comes skeptics (as there should be), questioning whether the use of Twitter is beneficial to educators. I have thought about that question a lot and I can give a definitive answer: yes and no ( I am 100% certain of this).

 

So to prove this, we have to look at a few things. First off, we have to look at how educators are using Twitter. Simply signing up for Twitter doesn’t improve anything in your classroom (similar to the notion that having a Twitter account will make people do inappropriate things and cyberbully). It all comes down to the use of it. I offer two scenarios in my own use of Twitter below."

Sosiaalisessa mediassa käyttäytyminen eroaa selvästi sen mukaan, mistä sovelluksesta puhutaan. Työkseen virtuaalimaailmaa tutkaileva nettipoliisi sanoo, että ongelmat kasautuvat pariin paikkaan.

“Kolumnissaan Matti Apunen esitti (HS 27. 1.), että koulut voidaan jakaa hyviin ja huonoihin opettajien mukaan ja että vanhempien tulisi saada valita ne koulut, joissa he voivat taata lapsilleen hyvät opettajat.”

"Oman lottokupongin lisäksi täytettävä myös kimppalotto" – pienet lukiot etsivät kumppaneita selvitäkseen lukiouudistuksesta

"Oman lottokupongin lisäksi täytettävä myös kimppalotto" – pienet lukiot etsivät kumppaneita selvitäkseen lukiouudistuksesta | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Parin vuoden päästä voimaan tuleva lukiouudistus on saanut monet pienet lukiot etsimään uusia keinoja opetuksen järjestämiseen. Tulevaisuudessa lukio-opetuksen järjestämisvastuu voi siirtyä yhä enemmän suurille kunnille tai koulutuskuntayhtymille.

Which Adapter Do I Need to Mirror My iPad?

You can use an adapter and a cable to mirror exactly what's on your iPad's
display onto a projector or television screen. When picking out an
adapter, you need to know if your device has a Lightning or 30-pin Dock
connector. You also need to know if your projector has HDMI or VGA input.
Use this flowchart to help you choose from among the four possible
adapters.
