My Beginner ESL students have started blogging everyday and it has been a huge success!  They are enjoying it so much that they are improving their writing skills without realizing it. Blogging is good for all!

How Much Weight Can You Gain From Thanksgiving Dinner? | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

Eat a pound of marshmallows, and you’ll have added one pound to your mass, at least until your body starts to excrete the food or use it for energy. So until metabolic processes kick in, the amount you gain from Thanksgiving dinner depends exactly on the amount you’ve decided to stuff down your gullet.

Social Media is the New Normal for Educators

Social Media is the New Normal for Educators | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

The term “new normal” is the lingo used to describe drastic change in doing something or life after a major event. The change is usually quick and immediate. It alters one’s approach to something or way of life. In the educational world a slower transition is happening that will create a new normal.

 

That change agent is social media. Social media has been around for some time but its practical use is relatively new to educators. As I engage more and more educators in the use of social media for educational purposes I hear a lot of the same questions. Here are some of the most common questions with my responses.

6 Hot Trends in Educational Technology [#Infographic]

6 Hot Trends in Educational Technology [#Infographic] | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it
No one can predict the future. But that’s never stopped us from trying. Educators are notorious for this. Just imagine how much money and effort we’d save if we could somehow convince the Magic 8 Ball to tell us exactly what our schools and classrooms will look like five, 10, even 20 years from right now?


We can guess, even make a few educated predictions — perhaps publish a few more of those forward-looking reports that our colleagues seem so fond of. But sometimes the best and most accurate means of projecting what’s next is simply to ask.

How 21st Century Thinking Is Just Different - TeachThought | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

If the 20th century model was to measure the accuracy and ownership of information, the 21st century’s model is form and interdependence.

The close thinking needed to grasp this is not beyond the reach of a typical middle school student, but it may be beyond their thinking habits.

So how exactly has education been affected by technology? A new infographic from DeVry University spells out how it’s helped teachers, students, and modern education as we know it. I refuse to use the term 21st century learning.

Naivety in the Digital Age?

Naivety in the Digital Age? | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

Naivety in the Digital Age means not realizing and accepting the dangers of the Internet, the ignorance of the need to secure its computer and any other device connecting to the Internet (smartphones + TV, fridge …), having no clue about Cyber-Security and people who think that Internet-Safety ALONE is enough!

 

===> Naif means ALSO thinking that a certain Operating System is secure and perfect! Nobody is perfect: <===

To cut to the quick, Schank thinks Higher Education is a con. You pay through the nose for not very much more than a three or four year vacation and a good social life. The courses are poor and the system designed to select researchers.

I came across this infographic recently created by Fuzion PR Agency based in Cork. I think that it really sums up visually the message of how to stay safe online when using Social Networks like Facebook.

 

They’re inviting schools to print it out here and put it up around school buildings to hopefully remind students on the best ways to avoid and deal with any cyberbullying issues.

Twitter and Facebook might soon replace traditional professional development for teachers. Instead of enduring hours-long workshops a few times a year, teachers could reach out to peers on the Internet in real time for advice on things like planning a lesson (or salvaging a lesson that’s going wrong), overcoming classroom management problems, or helping students with disabilities.
