AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, March 10, 2013 6:05 AM

G+ is catching up big time for many reasons.  Among these reasons is the Hangout integration.  

 

We just facilitated a remote 1.5 day leadership development session with Hangouts and it was fantastic.  

 

Google is sticking to their strategy and their value is starting to win people over.  I was never a fan and, through valuable features, I am changing my perspective on the suite of offerings.

 

This is a relevant infographic.

48 iPad Apps for Teaching and Learning Geography / Earth Science

48 iPad Apps for Teaching and Learning Geography / Earth Science | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

"After a year or two of tinkering and experimenting with apps for teaching / learing Geography, I have (finally) compiled this list of what I deem to be the most useful iPad apps for teaching Geography. I have not rated any of them, or offered any kind of review. I have merely inserted a screenshot or two and a link to the App Store. The discerning down-loader is urged to consult the ratings and reviews for each of these before buying and downloading them. I like them, and I am sure that you and your students will too."

It's Official: Using Twitter Makes Students More Engaged - Edudemic | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

“Tweeting can be thought of as a new literary practice,” said Greenhow (Assistant Professor of Education at Michigan State University), who also studies the growing use of social media among high-schoolers. “It’s changing the way we experience what we read and what we write.” “The students get more engaged because they feel it is connected to something real, that it’s not just learning for the sake of learning,” Greenhow said. “It feels authentic to them.”

That’s the lead in to explain that on Twitter, an “MT” is a Modified Tweet. When you retweet someone, technically you are stating that the Tweet is exactly as it appeared originally. If you make changes, even if to make it fit into 140-characters, it’s an MT.

5 Reasons The iPad Will Stay The King of the Classroom - Edudemic | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it
The biggest and most oft-heard criticism of the iPad usually revolves around it not behaving like a desktop PC or laptop. The people making this complaint are simply missing the point.


Apple aren’t trying to make a laptop replacement, why would they? They make a couple of extremely good ones! The iPad is a new kind of device that asks you to think and work differently.

It's no secret that social media is driving its way into classrooms, with some colleges now even offering a major in social media. Professors are extending the teacher-student relationship beyond classrooms in much the same way as companies are extending the business-customer relationship beyond their brick-and-mortar locations.

I’ve been pleased with the ways digital tools are allowing me to engage and collaborate with the media producers that most challenge my thinking. I had intended to blog about how the comic book Wild Children terrifies and motivates me as an educational researcher. However, through a handful of Twitter exchanges, I, instead, was able to talk with the book’s author, Ales Kot.

This is what John Holt was talking about in the 60s, student centered education, and adopted by many home school advocates, where children learn because they are innately curious and that curiosity is nurtured in the learning environment.

This educator describes how Scoop.it can be the tool by which you teach students to gather, manage, and evaluate information. I 100% agree with his caveat at the bottom that Scoop.it doesn't do the teaching but because it is so simple and seamless and allows for so much interaction and feedback between student curator and instructor, it is the perfect medium for it.

New ways of Education with Social Media

New ways of Education with Social Media | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

Twitter

Twitter hosts a great population of passionate educators from all walks of life and from all reaches. 

I’ve yet to plan a lesson without turning to my Professional Learning Network on Twitter for their input, resources, and advice.


With a decreasing budget and increasing demands on classroom teachers, having access to a tribe of educators on Twitter provides me tools, strategies, and a support system that I can rely on to continually help me to become a better instructional leader and classroom manager.


It’s not just about sharing. Twitter is a place where educators can actively reflect on successes and failures in the classroom while working together to extend what works and improve what doesn’t.
