Twitter..."has supercharged my professional development."

Twitter..."has supercharged my professional development." | Technology integration in schools | Scoop.it

"I have recently discovered Twitter, and it has supercharged my professional development. The reason? Twitter education chats!

Two months ago I would have said, “No, I don’t have a Twitter account.” I may even have been able to vaguely explain why I really don’t have space or reason for Twitter in my life. It certainly did not seem relevant to my work as an educator. However, during the last two months, my perspective has completely changed. I now eagerly ask fellow educators, “Have you experienced Twitter education chats? They are amazing!”"

8 Important Questions About Technology and Learning | Edudemic | Technology integration in schools | Scoop.it
“There are so many different challenges that technology integration in the classroom presents teachers. From budgets to hesitant parents to broken devices and totally re-vamping your lesson plans and constantly tweaking with lots of trial and error. It can be fun, hugely rewarding, and a big giant headache, too. But just because it can be …”

This post links to a video by Paul Hamilton, Technology in Education. In this 4 minute video Hamilton asks 8 questions that we may want to share with our community, be it our staff, our parents, or the broader community, to begin a dialogue that is lacking in many school districts. Three of the questions he raises are below. Take the time to click through to the post to read the other 5, and if possible find the time to watch this video.

* What do we ant technology to do in schools?

* Are we asking the right questions about technology, learning, and schools?

* Is the way we are using technology now turning our students 'off' to the people and the world around them?

Videos are a great way to engage students. Yes it can be time consuming but can be used over and over again.

Here's a good back-to-school overview about creating classroom videos.

Reshelle Johnson's curator insight, September 1, 2014 11:36 AM

I enjoyed making instructional videos for my students and letting them make them as well.  This article covers why we should not be hung up on having a polished video because shorter, less formal videos can be more effective.  I used the app Explain Everything on my iPad to record lessons, but there are some who say that having the teacher in the video is more effective.  I wasn't ready for that.
