"Eight solid, actionable tips for using tech in ways that actually improve the classroom ..."

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, September 8, 1:24 AM

This is a great article for keeping perspective in a tech-soaked classroom. 

1. Put the learning goals ahead of the technology. 

2. Opt for the open-ended.

3. Don’t let tech make learning easy.

4. Take feedback seriously.

5. Stay skeptical of individualised learning — for now.

6. Bring in student interests, authentically.

7. Start conversations.

8. Make it open, make it better.

Twitter is about to change the news media – again | Michael Wolff

Twitter is about to change the news media – again | Michael Wolff | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop |

...The news industry as a whole is shrinking. Advertisers have become more resistant to not just newspapers but all news media. Twitter might well have been a more attractive proposition if it had evolved into a micro-blogging tool for special interest and niche writers who advertisers are more partial to. But news is where Twitter has most squarely ended up. And the news business might actually be pretty good if you can make yourself the dominant player in it, the must-have, must-use, need-to-rely-on player in the business – and if you are the only one.


The Twitter direction is clear: It has found itself as an ad hoc, albeit still inchoate, but ever-increasing focal point for the distribution of news. More and more people turn first to Twitter for their news. As significantly, almost every news professional turns first to Twitter for news – every news professional, personally and organizationally, increasingly sees success as a function of its Twitter reaction. Now Twitter has to make money out of this. It will not do this by finding and creating its own news. Rather, it will do this by increasing the dominance and leverage of its redistributor position....

Twitter’s involvement in news media has made the social networking site a prominent player amongst new media. In this Internet age, many people want information quick and fast. Twitter’s swift delivery of bite-sized information makes it suitable as a platform for news media though it is important to for the voices of people to corroborate with information from official news sites.

Although Twitter may be able to change the news media, it might not be able to affect it as great as the author claims. Despite being convenient for many, the news on Twitter may not be justified. Therefore, although Twitter may be able to change the news media, old-media still holds its importance.

Although Twitter may be viewed as bad because it often distracts people from doing work, it is actually also a good and useful source of news. It is able to convey information fast to Twitter users and of course convenient for many. However, as Twitter may not be as credible as compared to other news media, it may not be that preferred a platform for news.
