9 Social Media Rules for Educators

9 Social Media Rules for Educators | Web Site of the Week - 3.0 - SD#60 - PRN | Scoop.it
Preparing to dip your foot into the social media pool? Anne Barretta, adjunct professor at William Paterson University and Ramapo College specializing in communications, recently shared 9 Rules of Etiquette for Academic Twitter Use that we found worth sharing.

(Looking into trying a different social media site? You'll find that the majority of rules still apply.)

Check these out, and, when you're ready to get down to the nitty-gritty, be sure to check out Atomic Learning's online training courses designed to help educators dive into some of the many popular social sites, including Twitter for Educators, Facebook for Educators, and YouTube for Educators.

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?

Word clouds are ideal for eLearning professionals who are looking for ways to visually represent text, whether this is content within an eLearning course or writings of the learners. Color and size can be used to denote a word's level of importance within the cloud, which helps learners to acquire and retain significant ideas (i.e. bolded words) more effectively. While word clouds are often associated with language arts eLearning courses, they can actually be used in virtually any eLearning setting.

How to use content curation in your class

How to use content curation in your class | Web Site of the Week - 3.0 - SD#60 - PRN | Scoop.it

 

Instructors are information curators. At iTteachU (University of Alaska), this is how teachers are using content curation tools in the classroom to:

 

- create group activities;

- organize and disseminate new content as a sort of digital handout to students in online and flipped classrooms;

- collect and share professional reading materials with students;

- foster discussion about current events;

- encourage students to become both content creators and curators;

- connect to experts outside class and to the world knowledge base;

- critique information available on the web. teach students to curate social media;

- help students gain credibility and exposure;

- keep track of online research efforts;

- create reading lists;

- help students gain access to the ‘collective intelligence’ of the Internet;

 

What about you? Do you use curation tools for personal or pedagogical purposes? Let us know. Share your experience on curation with us.
