A 10th Grader Explains How Social Media Can Replace Textbooks

A 10th Grader Explains How Social Media Can Replace Textbooks | Principal and Educator | Scoop.it

"Social media can transform a class from a traditional, cookie cutter, textbook-using class into an innovative, fascinating, and extremely relevant course. For example, a class that focuses on current events. Everyone deserves to understand what’s going on in the world. In school, why aren’t current events as important as events that took place hundreds of years ago? Moving beyond the textbook and utilizing resources like social media doesn’t mean we’re disregarding events of the past. It can mean the opposite."

Free digital-textbook project drives down cost of college | Principal and Educator | Scoop.it

"A state-funded project to create low-cost digital textbooks for community-college courses has saved students about $5 million in just a few years, advocates say. The figure represents the cost difference between commercial textbooks, which can cost hundreds of dollars apiece, and free digital books written by Washington faculty members that cover the same subjects."

[Infographic] Teacher's Love For Technology is Changing Classrooms

[Infographic] Teacher's Love For Technology is Changing Classrooms | Principal and Educator | Scoop.it

"Gone are the days when teaching meant the traditional use of blackboard, chalk and pencils. Technology has a major role in the 21st century and schools are adopting it across the globe. While at one point in time, adopting technology into the classroom may have been perceived as stressful and forced for teachers and students alike, as it stands now, students aren’t just excited about using technology, teachers are excited and highly capable of utilizing its presence in the classroom. Technology is being seen as an aid to teaching by many teachers and they are enthusiastic about its use in education."
