Broadening Your Social Strategy to Attract More Students

Broadening Your Social Strategy to Attract More Students | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

So why limit that reach to your current community? Your prospects are all on social media too. They're using it to talk about schools and learn from their peers. You need to make your institution part of that discussion. Start using social media to attract and talk with prospective students and parents.

Enseñar a pensar...Teaching how to think is just as important as teaching anything else | @scoopit via @AnaCristinaPrts http://sco.lt/...

Eileen Otero's curator insight, September 5, 2015 12:39 PM

Start early to teach students how to reason, critical thinking will develop naturally. Foster their  inquisitive abilities by keeping them focused and there will be no need to memorize. It is possible to develop effective thinkers when they are involved in the learning process rather than just recipients of information.

6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought

6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it
Grouping students is easy; creating effective student groups is less so.

The following infographic from Mia MacMeekin seeks to provide some ideas to help make group work easier in your classroom. The strength of this particular graphic is in the range of the ideas. The first tip refers teachers to Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal development, which frames student ability in terms of a range: what they can do unassisted, what they can do with the support of a More Knowledgeable Other (MKO), and what they cannot do even with support. This is different for each student, and understanding these ranges for students can help inform grouping decisions, whether you’re using a peer instruction model, ability grouping, or another approach.
