A brief History of Social Media (1969-2012) [INFOGRAPHIC]

A brief History of Social Media (1969-2012) [INFOGRAPHIC] | Schools That Can | Scoop.it

But here’s the thing: the history of social media actually goes back a lot further, and its roots can be found in blogging, Google, AOL, ICQ, the beginnings of the world wide web and, perhaps surprisingly, CompuServe.

8 Ways Tech Has Completely Rewired Our Brains

8 Ways Tech Has Completely Rewired Our Brains | Schools That Can | Scoop.it

Some cognition experts have praised the effects of tech on the brain, lauding its ability to organize our lives and free our minds for deeper thinking. Others fear tech has crippled our attention spans and made us uncreative and impatient when it comes to anything analog.

Google Apps, I believe are leading the way to student productivity. As teachers, we may see this as another hurdle in learning new technology, but students will grasp the concepts of Drive, Sharing, Collaborating, and etc, much easier than their teachers. I never thought about using the drawing as a whiteboard tool. Will have to give it a shot. Our district currently doesn't support hangouts, but with iPads we can probably use facetime in much the same way as described.

Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy in the 21st Century Classroom

Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy in the 21st Century Classroom | Schools That Can | Scoop.it

That we have evolved our favorite forms of communication is obvious without more than simply watching our students walk through the hallways. It would be easy to demonize social media and each medium that it provides for human interaction. But it would be educationally valuable to embrace it, turning it into an opportunity for our students to develop an appreciation for the advanced cognitive skills they employ on a daily basis. Why not study the highly visual communication models connecting the thoughts that mean the most to them with the social networks where they live their lives?

Visual literacy matters


Visual literacy is the ability to:

  1. Process and make meaning of information presented in an image.
  2. Communicate our own ideas through principles of design.
  3. Create our own messages that capture our visual thinking in a way that conceptualizes problems to given solutions.

While this article is from the UK, the trend for mobile computing in the classroom will spread globally, which only supports the need for companies to implement the means to distribute digital content electronically.

Audrey's curator insight, December 19, 2013 4:51 PM

It is already a reality in certain educational establishments, particularly those where there are 5 or less students in the class.  Education then becomes group facilitated learning.  For example, a student whose first language is Russian or Chinese, studying in the UK may not fully understand an English word.  They are able to type the word into their mobile device.   The result is an explanation of the word . They  share the meaning with the other students. The new word they discover has now expanded all students vocabulary.

 

Here is an example:  What is the meaning of infer?  The moble device may suggest conclude.  The teacher suggests deduce  and assume. Another student may suggest understand.

 

The result:   Students have increased their language, in about two minutes.

Apple's new iPads: What they mean for education | Schools That Can | Scoop.it

"Thinner. Lighter. Faster. That's Apple's newest iPad in a nutshell. Announced Tuesday, it has a new name, too: iPad Air.

 

The original iPad was introduced in 2010. Since then, Apple has refined its best-selling tablet each year, adding a high-resolution screen, improving the speed, and driving toward a smaller and lighter tablet.

 

Educators may be interested not only in what Apple just announced, but what they've kept around from last year's lineup."

5 Tips for Classroom Management with Mobile Devices

5 Tips for Classroom Management with Mobile Devices | Schools That Can | Scoop.it

Classroom management is a challenging skill which I consistently strive to improve on a regular basis. Often, people believe that managing a classroom that has employed technology requires a whole new approach and skill set. However, I have found that many traditional methods of classroom management readily translate to the technological rich schoolroom – with some slight modification.
