I think Schools need to use Social media as a tool rather than avoid it. It can be used quite powerfully in many ways ... including feedback systems to improve student learning

"Social media can provide two things that are critical for student engagement in a literate environment: audience and purpose." The post explains teachers how to use them with their students.

Mark Gillingham's curator insight, March 12, 2013 12:56 PM

Thinking of using a MOOC for your students or yourself? Think about the limitations that are usual but not necessarily forced in the typical MOOC and break into groups. Although many drop out of MOOCs, many do because they didn't find a suitable group or didn't think to look for one.

48 iPad Apps for Teaching and Learning Geography / Earth Science | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it

"After a year or two of tinkering and experimenting with apps for teaching / learing Geography, I have (finally) compiled this list of what I deem to be the most useful iPad apps for teaching Geography. I have not rated any of them, or offered any kind of review. I have merely inserted a screenshot or two and a link to the App Store. The discerning down-loader is urged to consult the ratings and reviews for each of these before buying and downloading them. I like them, and I am sure that you and your students will too."

James's curator insight, March 21, 2013 2:57 AM

Convenient and moneysaving, but can it really replace what has worked for years?

The digital generation can benefit from its familiarity but the increase in tech also leads to disuse of important skills such as handwriting and otherwise independent thinking and problemsolving.

Nat Sones's curator insight, March 21, 2013 5:57 AM

Higher education can't fight smartphones in the classroom any more. If you can't beat them, join them, say educators. 

Nat Sones's comment, March 21, 2013 5:58 AM
You have to use the tools of today. Does that mean you become slaves to them? Of course not. But minds are changing, just as times are. We must educate people in any way we can - and if that means (judicious) use of mobile, then so be it...at least, to me..
