Using Social Media In The Classroom For Real-World Learning

Using Social Media In The Classroom For Real-World Learning | Teaching Tools Today | Scoop.it

There is already evidence that teachers are using social media as part of teaching strategies, with the aim of encouraging students to view social networks as less of a pleasurable distraction, and more as something that can be used in projects and for personal expression in a medium they prefer.

The use of social media for learning is essential, particularly in secondary (high schools). Too many teens are engaged with social media, for fast periods of time, with no return on their investment. Schools and their pupil's would benefit from the social media angle.

More from Google. Maybe useful, but all-knowing.

Beth Dichter's insight:

Google provides so many tools it is hard to keep track of all of them. This post provides information on 7 tools that may find a place in your classroom. 
Would you like to provide audio feedback to your students, or have peers provide audio feedback? If you are using Google Drive this is possible.

Do you have a student that needs a clean and clear space to write, with no distractions? If Chrome is available as a browser consider installing the app Write Space, a "minimalist text editor."

If students are working in Google Drive and are researching a paper they may have found the Research Tool that allows you to quickly search the web for specific information, make suggestions and more.

Google Forms continues to add features, including the ability to create surveys. Have your students design a survey and graph their data, or use it the survey tool to do a quick formative assessment as an exit ticket.

Learn more about Moderator, Image Directory, and Google Templates (that's right, Google has templates designed for students and teachers) in the post. Chances are you will find at least one or two tools to use for yourself or with your students (or both)!
