A Must Have Guide on Using Twitter in your Classroom | Teaching Tools Today | Scoop.it

Another great Twitter resource for educators.This is a special guide full of tips, tutorials, and ways other teachers are using Twitter. Click on any title to access the article. If you are still struggling to find ideas on how to use this social networking site with your students then you don`t need to go any further, the guide below is more than enough for you. I am recommending it for both starters and experienced Twitter users and I am pretty sure you will love it as much as I did. I will definitely add this guide to our Twitter for Teachers section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. Enjoy

Ness Crouch's insight:

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

In addition to using Lego for maths, I've taken my sons (extensive) Lego collection into History and Society & Culture to have the students (high school) demonstrate their understanding of concepts such as globalisation, communism, nationalism, capitalism. Worked really well and classes sooo happy. 

 

Having been broken up into groups and given a concept each, They created cities or environments demonstrating the concept then talked the rest of the class through.

Seven Web-based Tools for Delivering Flipped Lessons

Seven Web-based Tools for Delivering Flipped Lessons | Teaching Tools Today | Scoop.it

"This fall there will be teachers trying the flipped classroom approach to lessons for the first time. In the right setting the flipped classroom model can work well. My favorite tools for creating flipped lessons include the option to insert questions for students to answer while watching the video instead of waiting until the end to answer a series of questions. I also like tools that provide students with the opportunity to submit questions to their teachers while they are watching videos. These tools offer those options."

An absolutely significant skill in any research or investigation, for educators and learners in the digital age - the curation of content- with a clear focus or question in mind, the capacity to target a search field, sift through, reflect on and make decisions about the most suitable resource or evidence to use. What a great learning experience.
