26 quick tips for teachers using Twitter - Daily Genius

26 quick tips for teachers using Twitter - Daily Genius | PLN | Scoop.it

"Whether you’re new to the Twitter game or a seasoned pro, there’s always something to learn. Teachers know that better than anyone. Learning is a lifelong process and figuring out social media is no different. I was pretty excited to come across this handy chart of quick tips for teachers using Twitter because it showcases the A-to-Z tips which will help you get off to a good start. Literally. It’s an A-to-Z walkthrough. Pretty good.

 

In this graphic from Fedena (a school management software maker), you’ll likely spot more than a few tips you already know. However, you should be able to discover a couple new ones that will help you up your Twitter game. For example, I really like the second tip on how to properly use Twitter. There’s certainly a level of etiquette you should follow. Don’t be spammy. Don’t over-tweet or overshare, and don’t take credit for someone else’s work. That’s a super handy tip to always keep int he back of your mind whether you’re talking about social media or just life in general!"

What is a Makerspace? Is it a Hackerspace or a Makerspace?

What is a Makerspace? Is it a Hackerspace or a Makerspace? | PLN | Scoop.it
A makerspace is a collaborative work space inside a school, library or separate public/private facility for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools.  These spaces are open to kids, adults, and entrepreneurs and have a variety of maker equipment including 3D printers, laser cutters, cnc machines, soldering irons and even sewing machines.  A makerspace however doesn’t need to include all of these machines or even any of them to be considered a makerspace.  If you have cardboard, legos and art supplies you’re in business.  It’s more of the maker mindset of creating something out of nothing and exploring your own interests that’s at the core of a makerspace.  These spaces are also helping to prepare those who need the critical 21st century skills in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).  They provide hands on learning, help with critical thinking skills and even boost self-confidence.  Some of the skills that are learned in a makerspace pertain to electronics, 3d printing, 3D modeling, coding, robotics and even woodworking,   Makerspaces are also fostering entrepreneurship and are being utilized as incubators and accelerators for business startups.  There have already been some amazing success stories that have come out of makerspaces to date.

Jane Sowter-Maranion's curator insight, September 2, 2013 7:58 PM

 Indeed, the iPad is a tool for creativity. Students can build digital projects, by using images, podcasts, videos and music to increase the appeal of their work.

I have also found that the iPad is fantastic when used as a rotational activity for practising skills during literacy and maths lessons; especially for kids who are struggling. Thus its a great tool to use when differentiation of curriculum is important.

Elaine Watkins's curator insight, September 3, 2013 8:43 AM

Worth a read, some great points made here... iPads are amazing tools if used to their potential.

The Digital Writing Process

The Digital Writing Process | PLN | Scoop.it

Now, with nearly 20 years of middle and high school teaching behind me, I still respect the writing process approach and its benefits. I also recognize that the nature of writing has changed tremendously over those two decades due to the significant influence of digital tools and sources. Of course, today’s composers still must meet the commonly accepted conventions of the genre in which they are engaged, but our visual digital culture creates different demands than did the primarily print text-based world.

Digital Communication Students's curator insight, December 4, 2015 7:00 AM

"The nature of writing has changed tremendously over those two decades due to the significant influence of digital tools and sources". We completely agree with this phrase. Our way of writing is changing more than we notice. I figure that adults notice this more than young people, because this last group were born with the Internet. Nevertheless, its very important to learn how to write properly, this article provides the tools and the practice we need.

As a result of recent learning and teaching developments, teachers are being trained to use ICT to develop more innovative teaching methods, and students are invariably required to use electronic information resources as part of their assignments. Networked internet access is now the norm in both primary and secondary schools, available not only in the school library but in computer suites and classrooms. Teachers and school librarians are increasingly aware that information literacy is a key skill needed by today's students, who are tomorrow's workers within the knowledge economy. The need for educators to understand how to help students to become effective information users is paramount. This book offers teachers and school librarians the means to exploit the internet effectively both as a learning and a teaching resource; in particular to hone their skills in accessing the most relevant parts of the internet to provide suitable information sources to aid students' learning. It offers valuable insights into information literacy and provides helpful examples of the most effective ways of teaching information skills. The book is a vital resource for all teachers and school librarians, and is relevant in all areas of the world. It is equally of use to head teachers and to professional educators and managers up to further education level. It should be on reading lists of all education institutions offering teacher training courses.
