Teacher vs Student: How Each Actually Uses Social Media

Teacher vs Student: How Each Actually Uses Social Media | Mr Brown's Design and Technology | Scoop.it

Both teachers and students use it pretty actively, and it can easily be used in the classroom. Do you agree? What do you think is the most ‘all-around’ social media platform for both teachers and students (in and out of class)?

This article is interesting and should be top of mind for any training organisation that wants to employ social media in the delivery of it's training programs.

 

I have been working with the use of technology in the delivery and management of education and training programs since the late 80's and am constantly amazed by my 7 year old grandson as he goes about do things like logging onto the Leggo website to access a plan so as he can build a new "something" in Leggo etc.

Check out this infographic that looks at how teens and tweens are using social media. It probably comes as no surprise that they are very active in the use of social media. One statistic they show is

* Surveys have found that majority or 81 percent of kids aged 12 to 17 use social media. This figure is higher than the 72 percent of internet users overall.

According to this article there appears to be a difference between what teens and kids younger than teens prefer as far as social media platforms are concerned.

Alternatives To Homework: A Chart For Teachers

Alternatives To Homework: A Chart For Teachers | Mr Brown's Design and Technology | Scoop.it

Via Beth Dichter

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 17, 2013 10:50 PM

What if instead of giving homework to our students we asked them to come up with ideas? This chart provides a variety of alternative ways to look at homework. The post describes this as "Rather than simply a list of alternatives to homework, it instead contextualizes the need for work at home (or, “homework”). It does this by taking typical classroom situations–the introduction of new material, demonstrating a procedure, etc.), and offering alternatives to traditional homework assignments."

Consider asking your students what they would suggest doing instead of homework. What might you be able to add to these suggestions?

 

Nancy Jones's curator insight, June 19, 2013 9:40 AM

Love this! 21st century learning isn't as much about technology as it is thinking .allowing choices and options like this not only allow students choices but the opportunity for deeper thinking.

Laura Jane's curator insight, December 16, 2013 12:17 AM

I stole this from Jamie, and couldn't agree more! What a great [and practical] resource to have as we go into the final semester of our internships. This chart is chock full of ideas for creating more authentic and less monotonous homework for students. It focuses on reinforcing, and not memorizing. 

 

These strategies could work for all grade levels, to different extents. This again addresses the quality vs quantity debate. One of my favorite examples is to reinforce a skill that has been taught. It suggests that, instead of asking students to solve 10 word probelms to prove that they know a skill, to have them work in groups to solve, model, and present one deeper thinking word probelm.

 

This allows students to work in harmony to formulate their ideas, and is a more productive approach to learning. Although some cognitive struggle is good, too much leads to frustration and defeat. Allowing students to work together helps them to actively participate in student-centered learning, and they can better understand what they've learned. I will definitely be printing this chart to put in my lesson planning binder.

Being an FE and Skills practitioner isn't easy.

Practitioners can produce excellent lesson plans and ensure they are fully prepared, only to fall flat in the learning environment.

What can these practitioners, and those engaged in initial teacher training, do?

To start with they need to know ...

their audience (learners) andwhat it actually takes to be an effective practitioner.

This interactive step-by-step visual guide provides some ideas and food for thought/discussion.
