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

How A Simple Checklist Can Improve Learning

How A Simple Checklist Can Improve Learning | Digital classroom | Scoop.it
"From reminding us of what to pack for a trip to helping doctors perform surgery, checklists are crucial for projects that require sequential steps or a series of tasks. As Atul Gawande points out in his book “Checklist Manifesto,” checklists break down complex tasks and also ensure consistency and efficiency if more than one person is working on a project."

The Use of Mobile Devices in Social Work/Pedagogy based on Bloom’s Taxonomy – The Padagogy Wheel | Digital classroom | Scoop.it
Social Pedagogy leans on social learning theory, where learning takes place on a societal level. In other words social learning occurs when individuals experience a demonstrable change in understanding or behaviour through social interactions and that change extends to include the society in which they live.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, January 26, 2014 11:41 PM

I participated in this because I have the same concerns. It is unfortunate that there are people who do not get the need to balance things for children. They need to learn the risks, be guided by caring adults, and grow into their social media practice.
