The new learning experiences

Sue Gaardboe's curator insight, February 13, 2:20 AM

If you can do it with paper why use a digital alternative? Because for some of students, it makes the difference between engagement and being switched off.  Of couse finding the activities that you just can't do with paper...that's the real power of a digital solution.

Jennifer Turner's curator insight, February 24, 1:40 PM

4 Twitter Tools Every Teacher should Know about

4 Twitter Tools Every Teacher should Know about | Metawriting | Scoop.it

Twitter is a powerful educational social networking website that has a huge potential for  teachers professional development.

 

Twitter is also ideal as a  PLN  where you get to connect with other educators from all around the globe and exchange teaching and learning materials with them. Building a PLN, however, requires making acquaintances with similar like-minded teachers and also developing your list of followers; but once you have such a solid PLN problems of maintaining it and staying updated with what others tweet become a tricky challenge.

 

I have curated for you some powerful tools to help you benefit the maximum from  the PLN you create on Twitter. Check them out below.

I've been wondering how to implement Twitter in a controlled manner, thanks!
Carmenne K. Thapliyal's curator insight, March 26, 2013 7:03 AM

Very, very interesting and controlled !! 

khodge55's curator insight, April 28, 2013 11:21 AM

Though I do not have a Twitter, I find this very interesting.  I think that if teachers did end up using this the kids who do have a twitter would get more involved in the assignment, but I'm not sure what they'd do with the kids like me would do during this lesson.  Overall,  I think this is a really cool and unique idea that could probably done with other social networking sites aswell.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, March 10, 2013 9:05 AM

G+ is catching up big time for many reasons.  Among these reasons is the Hangout integration.  

 

We just facilitated a remote 1.5 day leadership development session with Hangouts and it was fantastic.  

 

Google is sticking to their strategy and their value is starting to win people over.  I was never a fan and, through valuable features, I am changing my perspective on the suite of offerings.

 

This is a relevant infographic.

Social Media and SSO – What, Me Worry?

Social Media and SSO – What, Me Worry? | Metawriting | Scoop.it

More and more we see social media and other application sites on the Internet providing single sign-on (SSO) as a feature or service to their visitors.

 

I’m sure you’ve visited a site and seen an invitation to logon using your Facebook or Google+ credentials. Many times, these sites also encourage you to share articles to Facebook, Google, or other sites. Amazon recently joined this trend and announced Login with Amazon for their customers to use.

 

You undoubtedly enjoy the convenience of SSO. After all, it reduces the number of different accounts and passwords that you must remember, and that’s a good thing. Right?

 

Well, it’s not quite that simple. Any time a company offers you a SSO service, remember that their primary motivation is to find some way to monetize their relationship with you, the consumer.
