10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Sharing online to enrich learning | Scoop.it

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction. Searching for articles on this topic , I came across Doug Johnson's post on the 10 social media competencies for teachers [http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/blue-skunk-blog/2010/7/31/top-ten-social-media-competencies-for-teachers.html ]. I like the competencies Doug included and decided to make an infographic featuring all of these skills.  Have a look and share with your colleagues.

The Persistent Appeal of Technology in Learning

The Persistent Appeal of Technology in Learning | Sharing online to enrich learning | Scoop.it

The technology they use in their personal lives just makes sense for use in their learning as well. If a student badly wanted a new tablet or app for his or her own personal use but wanted nothing to do with it for any kind of learning whatsoever, we may need to look at the disconnect.

But there are other reasons why education consistently turns to technology

Major Changes to Copyright On the Way!

Major Changes to Copyright On the Way! | Sharing online to enrich learning | Scoop.it

The Intellectual Property Office (IPO) has published the government's intentions for 'modernising copyright' in a document, aptly called Modernising Copyright. It details many changes including some to the fundamental Education Exceptions to Copyright which are to be enacted through secondary legislation by October 2013.

 

Format shifting - moving data from one platform/device to another for personal or study purposes will be permitted.

Copyright Exceptions for education will be 'media neutral' - they will encompass all media - films, music, etc - not just text-based media.

Teachers will be permitted to use materials within the Exceptions for teaching to 'illustrate' their teaching.

The Exceptions will cover VLEs and institutionally managed authenticated services.

There are a number of new measures to assist archives and libraries perform their work of supporting learning and teaching in the digital age.

Further measures to support 'Disability' are also being introduced.

So virtual reality applications have the potential to transform our social and learning reality. They have the potential to transform the way we read and interact with text. They have the potential to transform the way and the places where we teach and the relationship between teachers and learners.

I don't know if this will replace paid credits, but it is a start toward a new paradiam

Paul Avila's curator insight, November 30, 2013 6:57 PM

This is an interesting idea to use in the classroom. It would motivate students to improve their skills to achieve these badges. I would suggest implementing these with some incentive system so that students pursue these badges instead of earning them passively as useless labels. These badges can be useful to track progress of historical thinking skills.

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | Sharing online to enrich learning | Scoop.it

Curation is a valuable skill for today’s learner. In a culture of content overload, members that provide great content to their audience will be recognized leaders in network communities. Optimally, we equip students to differentiate good content from bad in preparation for their further education and careers. Curating an online topic (and allowing comments) also increases self-awareness and provides additional insight from others. The nuances of sharing content and writing to an audience become much better understood through interactivity between the curator and participating audience.

I completely agree with this post. I fully integrated it into one of my courses last year. Students had to choose a potential future career and create a scoop.it page to help them learn about that field. Most feedback was positive. A few students still use it seven months after the grades have been turned in!
