Facebook is one of the most widely-used social media tools, it can help teachers improve their communication with kids through Facebook group messages or chats. Teachers can create a Facebook page for a class and post events, notes, and assignment due dates, and can go one step further and ask students to engage in discussions about what they’re learning.<br>

With Twitter, teachers can post supplementary materials, like links to relevant articles and videos, that kids can access outside of school on their own devices. Choosing and using one hash tag with tweets will let kids follow a conversation and see every tweet on that topic, as long as the tweet contains the chosen hash tag. Setting up a specific feed this way lets an entire class monitor the discussion–they can even reference older discussions from previous units or semesters.
Dianna Yancey's comment, April 4, 2014 2:21 PM
Twitter also lets teachers and students connect with other students and educators. Maybe more importantly, it can link students with subject matter experts and professionals in certain fields–helping students form links between what they learn in the classroom and where that knowledge can take them in college or the workforce.

Twitter, on the small chance that you don’t know, is the free micro-blogging service that enables users to post short messages, or Tweets, that are delivered to friends, enemies, family, colleagues -- anyone who has subscribed. These are your followers. You may have one, several, or, if you’re Ashton Kutcher, 2 million.<br>

Christopher Bergeron, a district-level technical coordinator in New Hampshire, says, “Some teachers are more open to collaboration and networking. Those who value personal networks are more excited about the technology even if they are not overly tech-savvy.”

A teachers role changes with the use of technology. They're no longer the center of attention as the center of attention as the dispenser of information in a class room. Teachers now set roject goals and provide guidlines and also resources. They make students more active by placing students in group, providing suggestions with technology.
Dianna Yancey's comment, March 11, 2014 5:06 PM
Many of teachers have stressed that there has been an enhancement with the students self esteem due to technology. It improves competence they feel after mastering a technology. It increases sense of self worth.

Being able to correct a student without damaging their self-esteem, confidence, or motivation is a tricky thing. And some teachers never learn it. It requires a knowledge of each individual student and what techniques and tactics will work with them. Teachers should try to help each student without hurting his or her chances of learning, because once that motivation is gone then it's very hard to get back, no matter how good the teacher is
Dianna Yancey's comment, May 13, 2014 8:50 AM
Despite all these things though, any teacher can be a good teacher as long as they have a seemingly endless supply of patience. That is really important . Just like what was said about the energy, many things a teacher does can be faked in class – a cheery personality, the desire to be there every day, the fact that you like each and every student. All these things may be faked for a day or two until they return, but not patience. A teacher will need a lot of patients to deal with the behavior and attitudes everyday
Dianna Yancey's comment, May 13, 2014 8:54 AM
With younger age groups they might not understand how to behave in a classroom, because they are young, they could stretch a teachers patience. With middle school students they might try a teachers patience because they do understand classroom etiquette and choose not to employ it. They might try a teachers patience because they don't want to be there. So patience is the most valuable thing that a teacher can have, and it's the one thing that a teacher must never lose

How Effective is Learning through Social Media?

How Effective is Learning through Social Media? | teaching | Scoop.it
The growth of social media - from Facebook to Twitter, from Flickr to Youtube - has provided a host of new opportunities for collaborative learning and, at the same time, raised questions about access. What influence do social media have on the nature of learning and how can education best join forces with them to support learners?
 
Executive SummaryI. Making Sense of the Digital WorldDan SutchWe need to recognise the opportunities provided by the use of social software, both in shared creation of content and wider access to audiences. However, these technologies fundamentally change the way we interact with knowledge. Education has moved from a broadcast model to one where we understand and make sense of information. We might need to rethink school organisation to provide a balance between providing information and supporting young people in creating knowledge.
 
This means that there is a shift from a supply-led to a demand-led approach to learning. We know that it is possible for people to come together through social media to create more appropriate learning activities. The question is what that means for younger learners and schools. II. The Limitations and Potential of Social NetworksProf. Ellen WartellaThe limitations of social networks must be noted as well as their potential. Social networking sites are better utilised by older high school and college students, as younger children are less likely to be reached by them. Secondly, research has shown that people use social networking for expressing identity and managing social life, not necessarily for education. Thirdly, research suggests that users can enter multiple communities of friends and manage relationships so that the online world of social groups tends to mirror the offline one. Fourthly, there are recurring examples of the negative consequences of using social networking sites. There are also great educational opportunities, such as the growing use of Facebook and Twitter by teachers to communicate with students outside the classroom. Secondly, education-oriented action groups use social media to extend their informational and educational outreach. Thirdly, there is remarkable opportunity to create educational networks. Earlier technologies rarely met the educational potential expected of them and in this respect social networks are likely to resemble them. Their potential is in our hands, and we should create it thoughtfully and in collaboration. III. Learning through Social MediaAbdalla AbdallaThe advantages of social media are ease of access, portability of technology, simplicity, and freedom of speech and expression. Using social platforms and other networking sites can help people reach their career goals more easily, while also educating people who may not know much about a particular field. Education can take place informally merely through the fact that people are interested in a subject. Social media are entering into the employment sphere. Soon the blog will replace the CV. Students are already using social media to improve their educational skills. The question is how educational institutions can join in this process.

* A program is developing that will help teachers recieve real time assessment information from students. When the teacher gives out an assignment they can see how far along students are. They can see how much time a student takes on something and also see if they're doing things correctly. With this teachers can decide what the students are having trouble with and show examples to help.
Dianna Yancey's comment, March 11, 2014 4:29 PM
Technology is helping teachers to improve and enlarge beyond linear text based learning and to engage students that learn better in different ways.
Dianna Yancey's comment, March 11, 2014 4:34 PM
Digital simulations, examples, and models can help teachers explain concepts that are really complex or simple. They can show and tell things that may occur really fast or extremly slow.
