Les 25 meilleures manières des #professeurs pour utiliser #Twitter en cours.

marissa goldberg's curator insight, November 24, 2014 1:11 PM

*Social media*

Some teachers might think that twitter is the last tool that they would use in their classroom, but dailygenius.com is looking to change the mind of educators everywhere and show that twitter can be a true educational resource. In "25 top ways teachers use Twitter in the classroom" author Jeff Dunn presents his infographic that teaches progressive learning from this microblogging site.

I am going to go over a few of his ideas and why I think they could be useful in day to day teaching. The very first item on the list is "monitor relevant hashtags" This can be extremely educational as modern news has been known to break on twitter. Even president Obama has used twitter's trending topics feature to tweet updates from the white house. Not only can the kids learn about what is going on in the world but they can see it happening in real time because twitter updates every second. Dunn also wants kids to use hashtags for project based learning which is relevant because these days kids get their research from social media, they can get quotes from industry professionals as well as ask questions to those who may have answers for their project. It makes communication seamless.

English teachers can use twitter by making a fake account for a literary figure for example: @EdgarAllanPoe can use twitter to talk about his life and his poetry which creates a relatable resource for children to learn.

Even on days off or snow days teachers can have remote conversations with their students through a class twitter account. This instant communication allows students to connect with their peers and with the teacher from anywhere in the world.

From a marketers perspective this generates traffic for twitter as well as brands who want to promote on twitter. Using social media as an education tool expands the use of your brand (twitter) and keeps you relevant in today's constantly updating and changing world.

People try to define everything by science. While I am not saying that everything can be defined by science, we must acknowledge that science has a large place in the world we know today. My future career plans involve a slightly untested field of science (Behavioral Science) combined with a well known a well practiced science (Psychology). We cannot define everything by science, but that doesn't mean we can't try.

In some of the workshops I run there's a section where we look at marketing
with video - and people suggest good and bad examples of the art of library
video. We watch a few, critique them, try to extract something meaningful
we can apply to our own future videos.

Last time I did this, for UKeIG this month, someone posted a video I'd not
seen before - Texas A&M University Libraries' take on Pharrell's video for

#avancee e a revolucao  em aprendizagem que é ignorada por aqui.

21 praticas que todo educador do seculo XXI deveria fazer para manter a sanidade mental :D


Fato é, que algumas praticas, como encorajar a democracia na sala de aula por meio da discussão moderada,  são milenares e ainda muito dificil de serem adotadas com uma comunicacao nao violenta em diversos aspectos.

Quiçá as recomendações sobre video, posts, fotos, etc...

Sei que alguns educadores tem se empenhado para traduzir as angustias da geracao do seculo XXI, mas o movimento ainda é timido e mereceria ganhar um apoio publico.
