What Teachers Need to Know about Using Hashtags in Google+ | Learning in the 21st century...and beyond! | Scoop.it

Did you know that clicking on a hashtag (# symbol) will show relevant content related to that term or "tag"?. The concept of hashtags was first introduced to Twitter with the purpose of creating communities around a specific content, and now Google+ is now supporting the use of hashtags. Here's how/why to use them...

It took me a while to understand hashtags, but now I use them all the time. I even have a friend who hashtags her text message #annoying (just kidding!) Here's a great guide from ww.educatorstechnology.com

Top Apps for PE Teachers - Part 28 | The P.E Geek | Learning in the 21st century...and beyond! | Scoop.it

"This truly innovative mobile app allows users to turn their device into a speed camera and see exactly  how fast they kick a football. The app guides your through the process of setting up the kick so that the app is capable of accurate detection. You will firstly start by selecting if you are right or left footed and then the app provides a frame overlay that you must position the ball over your resting soccer ball. Once setup its all up to the kicker and the app to track the overall speed, angle and estimated kick distance. It even records your kick and replays it back to you in super slow motion."

This is a a wonderful program: check out Kathleen's notes

Kathleen McClaskey's insight:

Don't miss this project that was designed by learners at The Inquiry Hub. The back story is that the learners wrote a grant so they could design and built this community garden. Here are some insights into The Inquiry Hub.

 

"The structure of the Inquiry Hub is around topics. In the morning, the teachers and learners start off with a topical workshop. Then the learners work on online courses guided by their teachers. In the afternoon they work on their inquiry project individually and/or collaboratively. Dave shared a topic that took a life of its own: The Green Inquiry Project where Shauna, Sophia, and Hanna wrote and received a wildlife grant as part of their environmental sustainability group."

Carol Koechlin's curator insight, May 2, 2013 10:03 AM

Great model that could be replicated in the Learning Commons to empower students to own their inquiry.

Antonia Rudenstine's curator insight, May 23, 2013 8:18 AM

I love the name "Inquiry Hub"...such a powerful way to help us all reimagine what a learning community can be if it's not a "school."
