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!


Ivo Nový's insight:

The infographic below takes a look at colleges and universities that are using social media, and shows how they’re using it. Keep reading to learn more.

Why (And How) Teachers Are Using Twitter - Edudemic

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

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.

Teachers Guide to Teaching Using Social Media

Teachers Guide to Teaching Using Social Media | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

The growing popularity and the pervasive use of social networking websites among our teens and students is a fact we can no longer ignore.


Unfortunately, many school boards  still promulgate laws that inhibit access to these platforms in schools and thus missing on huge learning opportunities for students.


Instead of forcing an unwarranted ban on these media tools why not embrace them and turn them into learning hubs where our students can thrive academically.


Using social media in education has got such a huge potential and there are a variety of ways teachers and schools can leverage the networked power of these tools to help students achieve better.


Here are some of the ideas on how to use social media in class.

For parents right now, the classroom may already seem fairly alien. 


When an elementary school student shares their frustration with their Prezi presentation about apartheid, or laments the lameness of their PowerPoint animated transitions, parents know that the world has changed. 


When a high school student makes a video accompanied by music and special effects, demonstrating how Ovid’s word choices reveal character, the change is undeniable.
