6 Ways Social Media Can Change Your Classroom | Edudemic

6 Ways Social Media Can Change Your Classroom | Edudemic | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it
Social media is broadly defined as online sites or tools where people create and share content in written and visual formats. Students are social beings and want to share their opinions publicly, so it’s easy to why social media sites hold such an appeal.


Perhaps that’s why teachers who used to be concerned with students texting, tweeting, pinning and posting during class time, have begun to harness the power of their students’ favorite online sites.

3 Powerful Web Tools to Create Whiteboard Animation Videos for Your Class

3 Powerful Web Tools to Create Whiteboard Animation Videos for Your Class | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

Whiteboard animation videos are videos that draw themselves. They involve an animated use of images, shapes, characters, sounds and voice-overs to create a clip. This form of video production has been very popular recently and is widely used by some leading educational YouTube channels such as TED Ed and RSA Animate. Creating a whiteboard animation video is no longer a graphic designer's job. There are actually several web tools that allow you to easily put together an animated video with as simple tools as drag and drop. As a teacher, you can  use these animations to create and share tutorials,  presentations, step by tsp guides, and many more. Below are three  of my favourite tools I would recommend for you:
