6 TED Talks Educators And Students Should Watch Together | Edudemic

6 TED Talks Educators And Students Should Watch Together | Edudemic | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

There are six TED Talks in the article that each address different aspects of education. You may look at some of the titles and think “that’s not ‘my’ issue”, but each one carries an important message and is worth the few minutes it will take to watch.


These talks will both get you thinking about different issues, and will make you proud, angry, sad, excited, and inspired all at the same time.

How To Create Interactive Lessons for the iPad - Daily Genius | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

"As a teacher, you are used to create your own lessons. The xerox, Microsoft Word, and PowerPoint are your trusted companions. But how can you effectively use iPads in your lessons?

The ebooks provided by publishers are mostly static and just not interesting enough for today’s students. Some educational apps are great, but finding the rights ones, figuring out how they work and getting them installed on all student devices can be a hassle.

Aren’t there easy ways to create your own materials for iPad? Yes, there are! Try these:"

Multi-Tasking Will Kill You

Multi-Tasking Will Kill You | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

I owe you an apology. If I’ve spoken on the phone with you at any point in the past four or five years then there’s a decent chance (75%) that I was playing chess online at the same time. I’m sort of embarrassed if you are reading this. But I wanted to come clean. Maybe by confessing I’ll stop doing this bad behavior.

There’s two aspects of that last sentence. “Bad behavior” – is it really? And “by confessing I’ll stop”. I don’t know if I’ll really stop. It’s an addiction. I can’t help myself. If I even hear the sound of my phone ringing I reach for the mouse and start clicking on the chessboard after a game starts up.

First off, is it bad behavior?

But what if your classroom if is full of open-ended projects and you need to constantly communicate with students, parents, and the community? Google+, Google Hangouts, Remind, DIY, and maybe Trello?
