Without defining a vision of what we are trying to do – something that will matter to people – we are just going through life the way we always have. We are not moving in any new direction. Profunda reflexión que debemos enfrentar y actuar en consecuencia.

It helps us teachers break down classroom walls and class-time barriers as students learn and reflect by using tools on their mobile devices.

Here are some great ways to use social media in the classroom.

64 Varied And Essential iPad Apps For Teachers

64 Varied And Essential iPad Apps For Teachers | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

What exactly makes an app “essential” is open to interpretation. For pure productivity, you could consider the direction of Google Drive, Skype, Zoom Notes, iAnnotate–maybe a gradebook app, Class Dojo, etc.

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?

Technology is an amazing way to differentiate. I would caution us to be thoughtful about what and how we use it. There is no magic pill - use your head and heart when when making decisions.

"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?
