A Roadmap to Online College Student Decision Making | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, in 2012 approximately 2.6 million students were enrolled in fully-online degree programs, while 5.5 million were taking at least one online course.  For institutions to fully understand how to best serve this growing population, it is critical to understand who is studying online and what they are looking for in from their degree program.

8 effective ways to use social media in the classroom | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

Social media is something many teachers do not integrate in their classrooms. There. It had to be said.


The truth is that most teachers are just too darn busy to actually weave the many education technology tools, social media sites, and mobile apps into everyday classroom life.

How Stress Affects the Brain During Learning

How Stress Affects the Brain During Learning | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

While stress may be good for truly life or death situations, the same stress response makes learning difficult, as the stimulated senses are not those associated with deep learning.


Think about it this way: would you be able to memorize the times tables when you were being chased by a bear? Of course not. But while this may be obvious, the reasons why this is the case is more complex than you might expect.

321 free tools. It's an odd number, in more than one way. I cannot imagine the work to compile this list nor the work involved to determine which of these tools might be best suited for a teacher and his or her classroom. Of course, this list is only the beginning of possibilities.

Which Universities Are Effectively Using Social Media? - Edudemic

Which Universities Are Effectively Using Social Media? - Edudemic | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

Social media in the classroom – it is one of the most requested topics, most often emailed about, most popular posts and overall topics in general.


How to use Facebook in the classroom. How to use Twitter to boost your professional development. How to use Instagram in the classroom. All great topics – but we shouldn’t forget that the administrative end of schools can also put social media to good use – and they often are!

Why (And How) Teachers Are Using Twitter - Edudemic | Social Media 4 Education | 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.


That said, there are still skeptics. How can 140 characters be so effective? Does anyone even care what I have to say? How do teachers really use it?

Tools for Professional Learning: Curate, Share, Connect | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

Initially, reading and learning was easy. Each morning, I skimmed 2-3 blogs to see what might be new. However, as my reading list expanded, I needed a better system.


First, I subscribed to blogs by email. However, 30 messages a day was far from manageable. Rather than visit each blog individually or wade through dozens of emails, I wanted content pushed to me on one screen so that I could focus on reading rather than searching.


I needed an RSS Reader -- a tool that would automatically aggregate new content in one place.
