As educators, it is our responsibility to do whatever it takes to help our students learn. As such, we need to utilize every tool which is provided for us.

7 Razones Por Que los Educadores Tienen Que USAR vereda Los Medios Sociales:

Celeste Weinstein's curator insight, February 20, 2014 9:51 PM

EDCI397 emphasizes the need for teachers to develop their PLN, and this blog post demonstrates the positive impact these connections can have on the classroom as a whole. Teachers who become connected through social media, such as Twitter or Pinterest, can gain the tools they need to better engage their students. Although I was initially reluctant to use Twitter and other social media as an educational tool, the collaborative opportunities and the chance to help students and their parents connect with the classroom and the world around them made me realize how essential the use of social media in the classroom can be.

I recently began a school wide twitter and facebook.  Great article.

Peer to Peer U – A New Model of Learning » Online Universities | Mediawijsheid in het HBO | Scoop.it

 

[Learning for all, by all and about almost anything. An interesting article on a social learning model by the P2P University, based on the power of the community seeking to share and enrich learning. With badges as a system for recognizing informal learning.]

 

Comment: the original article (in English) on wich Marta bases her scoop is interesting, but almost to good to be true. When will greed trump idealism, how can quality be guaranteed (after all, we live in an attention economy, so even if it is for free, the time spent isn't). How does this compare with MOOCs? Yet, interesting initiative to keep track of (peter sloep)

It’s Official: Using Twitter Makes Students More Engaged

It’s Official: Using Twitter Makes Students More Engaged | Mediawijsheid in het HBO | Scoop.it

Further affirming what you probably already know, Twitter is evidently one of the best tools for learning and becoming an engaged student. We’ve covered the benefits of the social network ad nauseum for teachers and administrators over the past few years … but a new study solidifies the worth of Twitter for students.

The Pros and Cons of Adding Social Layers to Online Learning

The Pros and Cons of Adding Social Layers to Online Learning | Mediawijsheid in het HBO | Scoop.it

Probably the hardest thing to “mimic” in online education is the experience of meeting peers and professors on campus. Besides making friendships and having the opportunity to directly interact with other people, working together on problems and learning with the help of peers is an important part of the entire experience.

Learning alone has its advantages as well. Students can study at their own pace and from almost anywhere, thanks to mobile Internet or free WiFi in coffee shops. But still, students will most likely end up wishing there was someone else they could ask for help or to keep them motivated.
