Introduction to Google Classroom - Edudemic | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

With the recent announcement of Google Classroom, school districts and educators across the country that are currently integrating Google Apps for Education into their classrooms are awaiting the opportunity to gain access to Google’s workflow solution. While there are currently a number of workflow solutions and approaches within Google Drive that classroom teachers can take that range from manual organization and file / folder sharingto advanced automation with tools such as Doctopus, Google Classroom provides a viable option that strikes a balance – blending tight integration with Google Drive, an intuitive interface and advanced features that experienced Google Drive users are looking for.

Why Visual Content Matters in the Social Age [INFOGRAPHIC]

Why Visual Content Matters in the Social Age [INFOGRAPHIC] | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

Sono sicuro si sa che il contenuto visivo sui social media può massicciamente migliorare l'impegno. Ma quanto è importante?

Che ne dite di questo: il cervello umano elabora le immagini 60.000 volte più veloce di testo. Di conseguenza, il 90 per cento di tutte le informazioni che arriva al cervello è visivo.

Sul web, si stima che il 55 per cento di tutto il traffico sarà il video entro il 2016, e il traffico video mobile aumenterà del 1800 per cento. YouTube, Instagram e Vine sono attualmente le migliori piattaforme per massimizzare il video fidanzamento, quindi sono li che utilizzano al loro pieno potenziale nelle tue campagne di marketing?

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 25, 7:21 PM

What does it mean to be digitally literate? If you ask teachers, students, parents, administrators, and community members the responses may be very different. This post explores this issue and notes (for the teacher):

"Digital literacy isn't about knowing computers inside and out; it's about using technology to change the way you think. If critical thinking skills haven't yet become a part of your students' digital citizenship, it's time to think your teaching strategy."

After the introduction, the post is split into two sections:

5 Teaching Practices that Destroy Digital Literacy. One of the practices is "using 'cool' technology to deliver a planned lesson." To learn why click through to the post.

The final section is 15 Habits to Cultivate in Your Students. Two are listed below.

* Read past the first page of Google results (and my suggestion would be to use some of the many alternative search engines. You may be surprised that many other search engines work better for students).

* Train students to react skeptically if they read the phrase  'Research says...' or 'A recent study revealed..."

To learn more about the 15 habits check out the post. Do you have ideas that would be helpful to others? If so, please share them.

Teaching Without Walls: Life Beyond the Lecture: 8 Tips for Making Beautiful Presentations

Teaching Without Walls: Life Beyond the Lecture: 8 Tips for Making Beautiful Presentations | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

by Michele Pecansky-Brock

 

"Humans are visual creatures. Creating and engaging with visual content was more innate to our species than text.  But beyond the "what came first" argument, we must understand the power of images to engage the affective domain of learning.  For a moment, reflect on your childhood memories. What comes to mind? How much of what you remember is imprinted in memory because someone took photographs of those moments?  "Our personal memories, our lives are shaped through images. And as they have become more accessible to educators, understanding how to use them effectively to persuade, impact, empower, and inspire others is an important part of communicating."
