20 WordPress Plugins for a More Powerful Blog | Buffer | Educational Use of Social Media | Scoop.it

We’re quick to grab any and all WordPress plugins that can give the blog an extra edge or can wire up a feature we’d love to test. Whenever we dream something up to try on the blog, the first place we turn is WordPress plugins. We’ve collected quite the list of favorites. How about you?

 

As we’ve tried and tested new plugins on the blog, you’ve likely noticed new pieces and parts popping up on our pages—slideups, social share buttons, CTAs, and more. We get asked quite often about which plugins we use. So we thought we’d share!

 

Below is the list of plugins that power the Buffer blog, along with a handful of others that are on our to-try list....

Teaching how to use social media responsibly is a skill that school librarian have. Just ask us.

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 21, 4:55 PM

Once you find emails in your inbox from students excited about the upcoming week of school regarding the projects they'll be working on, you know you've successfully hooked them on learning. I tried to implement twitter in the classroom last year but I found it a little daunting to try. The way this school set up the project was getting staff on board by joining Twitter and activetly tweeting. Typing letters to the principal and sending through social media mediums like Twitter, is an effective way of spotlighting student work. The teacher even had kids doing extra work because they enjoyed creating for the classroom. They developed QR codes to link to specific classroom sites such as frequently used gaming applications and websites. Great idea! I now know it's possible for third graders to effectively use social media in the classroom!

Why (And How) Teachers Are Using Twitter | Social Media in Education [Infographic] | Educational Use of Social Media | Scoop.it

Oh, Twitter. You’re so useful for teachers. You connect educators so that they can share tools, tips and tricks, offer insight, and support one another. You bring your sexy social media-ness into the classroom to keep kids interested in what they’re learning when they think they’re actually (sort of) having fun instead.
