Social Media Belongs in the Classroom

Social Media Belongs in the Classroom | The 21st century classroom | Scoop.it

Teachers who resist using social media in the classroom are stripping their students of an essential component of their future success. Avoiding – or worse, banning – social media platforms for students prohibits them from being successful professionals in fields like accounting, chemistry, the arts and more.

Productivity Tools for Educators

Productivity Tools for Educators | The 21st century classroom | Scoop.it

" I am a firm believer in the purposeful use of technology to improve productivity and accessibility to critical information. .....In addition to be good stewards of our resources, I believe that an important responsibility of a 21st educator is the purposeful modeling of instructional technology. That being said, neither teachers or administrators have time for contrived implementation of tech tools – it should serve a purpose and lead to more effective practice. Over the course of my school administrative experiences I have gradually developed systems for managing tasks and duties that minimize the necessity of paper and provide nearly universal access to the notes, paperwork and documentation needed to effectively carry out my responsibilities. It is a work in progress, but I have decided to share the web 2.0 tools I use on a day-to-day basis to improve my efficiency and model technology usage for our teaching staff. While these descriptions have a decidedly administrative slant, each tool is easily adapted for classroom use."
