Imagine getting all of the key notes of the thought leaders in the conference pushed to you in real time. That is why we love Twitter with our conferences.

 

We have found twitter to be a great learning augmentation and support tool for conferences and key leanring events. We use a hashtag and then produce a tweetbook post conference and share with attendees. These community notelbooks are great to recap conferences in blog posts, share learning with people unable to attend, and extend the insights from the conferences.

Twitter can move your professional learning in ways you never dreamed.

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

TWITTER TRANSFORMS EDUCATORS


Before the advent of Twitter, most educators I know had limited opportunities to collaborate with colleagues outside their building. Some subscribed to listservs or participated in online forums, but these outlets lacked critical mass; teachers also networked at in-person conferences and training sessions, but these isolated events didn't provide ongoing support.

 

Enter Twitter. I've heard many educators say that Twitter is the most effective way to collaborate and that they've learned more with Twitter than they have from years of formal professional development.

Twitter provides a great opportunity to collaborate with educators outside of your local physical community. The exchange of ideas and perspectives can reenergize your career. “Twitter is often just the introduction — the virtual handshake that opens the door to a deeper collaboration”

Browser plug-in and website warn about data harvesting by Facebook apps

Browser plug-in and website warn about data harvesting by Facebook apps | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Secure.me has launched a website and a browser plug-in designed to make Facebook users aware of the personal information that gets harvested by third-party applications.

 

Privacy matters!

 

The App Advisor Security Network website has profiles on more than 500,000 third-party Facebook applications that describe the user data they collect, what actions they can take and whether they are considered unsafe. The application profiles also display user ratings.

 

Meanwhile, the App Advisor browser extension, which works with Safari, Firefox and Chrome, gets activated when users visit either application sites or call up an application's page in the Facebook App Center.

 

In those instances, the browser extension displays a pop-up alert that informs users of the reputation level of the application and gives them the option to call up more detailed information.

Information overload: A recurring fear

Information overload: A recurring fear | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Interesting article providing a more historical perspective of information overload. 

 

If we want to understand the modern way we think about so-called “information overload” the best place to start is the 1970 book Future Shock by author and futurist Alvin Toffler.

Twitter is a fantastic tool. I'm using with my class. We have a secure account so not everyone can see us but we can see that is happening in the world. The children love sharing their work on Twitter. We are linked with parents and other classes. The discussions we have around approriate material to put on Twitter and who we should accept as our followers is a real world experience for the students

Continuing our theme of using Twitter in education this week, we bring you a look at the ways Twitter is causing the current lecture model to evolve. The following analysis is brought to you by our content partners over at Online Universities.

 

Gone is the time when PowerPoint was the most impressive communication technology in the lecture hall.

So how exactly is Twitter changing the college lecture as we know it?

 

Read on to find out about 10 different ways.

 

- Mobile devices are welcome in the lecture hall once again

- Lectures become a conversation

- Bashful students are speaking up

- More students get connected in large lectures
