Instagram TV for Teachers: A New Medium for PD and Inspiration | EdSurge News

"Video is a powerful medium for communicating information—and as teachers know, students love using it, especially YouTube. From a viral video with a clip reminiscent of America’s Funniest Home Videos, to explainer videos and tutorials, YouTube is full useful (and silly) content.

But there is a new video medium that I’m super excited about. I think it has the potential to provide teachers with actionable information, including classroom strategies, lesson ideas and tips to support their professional growth. It’s called IGTV and it was launched earlier this year as a new way to “inspire, educate and entertain.” And in addition to providing a new way consume information, this platform can empower every user as a storyteller and creator of content."

How to manage Cell Phone use in your Classroom

How to manage Cell Phone use in your Classroom | eLearning, Blended Learning and Mobile Learning | Scoop.it

In today’s technological world, there is no escaping the smartphone phenomenon. The average person uses their smartphone anywhere from 8 to 10 hours a day. Most people are even checking their phones every 15 to 20 minutes while they’re awake. The ways in which smartphones have become such an essential part of modern life is staggering, and something to be aware of when teaching in a classroom.

Smartphones can be both a great educational tool and a great distraction in the classroom. It should come as no surprise that almost every child in the US owns or has access to a smartphone. Statistics show that 56 percent of children age 8 to 12 have a smartphone. That number jumps up to 88 percent of teenagers ages 13 to 17 have or have access to a smartphone. And a whopping 91 percent of middle and high school aged students primarily access the internet via their smartphones.

This change in the way we interact with technology and integrate it into our lives has come dramatically and fast. It’s sometimes hard for teachers, many of whom grew up in an era with no mobile phones or even the internet, to adapt to this fast-paced technological generation. While smartphones can easily be the downfall of your students’ attention spans and performance, they don’t have to be. More and more educators these days are incorporating modern technology and students’ own smartphones into their classroom to engage and excite students about learning. Below you will find useful tips on how to manage cell phone use in your classroom, and use it for your teaching benefit.

Boy Who Created Viral Cardboard Arcade Still Dreaming - #CainesArcade #makered

Boy Who Created Viral Cardboard Arcade Still Dreaming - #CainesArcade #makered | eLearning, Blended Learning and Mobile Learning | Scoop.it
Caine Monroy became famous for his creativity at the age of nine, but the 14-year-old high school freshman has never stopped learning and imagining.

Imagination is how he created Caine’s arcade, arcade-style games made out of his cardboard nestled in a corner of his father’s auto parts shop in Boyle Heights.

Five years ago, Nirvan Mullick became the first Caine’s Arcade customer. The filmmaker put together a flash mob to get more people through the door.

Applying Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs to the Use of Educational Technology

Applying Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs to the Use of Educational Technology | eLearning, Blended Learning and Mobile Learning | Scoop.it

Putting the technology into the hands of students and helping them to understand how to use it in a way that leads to their own self-actualisation can also be a perfectly legitimate goal in itself. If we do this though, we should be sure that the technology we teach students about has genuine functionality for them outside of the classroom and measuring this against Maslow’s hierarchy is a good way to do this.

Now You Can Follow Hashtags on Instagram

Now You Can Follow Hashtags on Instagram | eLearning, Blended Learning and Mobile Learning | Scoop.it
Today we’re introducing the ability to follow hashtags, giving you new ways to discover photos, videos and people on Instagram. Now it’s even easier to stay connected with the interests, hobbies, passions and communities you care about.



Every day, millions of people share photos and videos and tag them with relevant hashtags. #onthetable, #slime and #floralnails are just a few examples of hashtags that represent the many interests and passions of our community. To make these posts even more discoverable, we’re introducing hashtags you can follow.



Following a hashtag is just like following a friend. To get started, search for a topic you’re interested in or tap on a hashtag from any post. You’ll see relevant hashtags displayed in your search results along with related accounts. When you find a hashtag you like, open the hashtag page and tap on the follow button. You’ll begin seeing top posts from that hashtag in your feed and some of the latest stories in your stories bar. You can always unfollow a hashtag at any time.







To give you more ways to find hashtags you might like, you can check out the hashtags other people follow in their profiles. Similar to people you follow, hashtags you follow respect your privacy settings. If you set your account to private, the hashtags you follow will only be visible to your followers.






Following hashtags is just the beginning of how we’re giving you the tools to discover and be inspired by our community.

Las clases digitales se están convirtiendo en elementos indispensables del aprendizaje del siglo XXI. ¿Quieres saber cuáles son los elementos de una clase digital? 
Maddison Kirkpatrick's curator insight, May 4, 8:46 PM
I found this article to provide valuable insight into a number of elements in a digital classroom. The article has highlighted a number of elements that I will look to use in my classroom to improve student learning experiences. 
Key findings:
Online classrooms can provide feedback to teachers in a variety of ways such as data. This feedback can aid teachers to create personalised learning for students. 
Data can be displayed to communicate feedback to students.  This can be accessed individually for personal results or group results as a class. Coupled with teacher communication, students can use this information to improve their learning. 
Flexible online platforms allow for further personalised differentiation. This means teachers can more easily cater to gifted and talented students, and students with learning difficulties. 
Online classrooms can be perceived by students in different tones. This means the visuals of the platform can impact on student engagement. I will aim to create a lively, fun platform where students are enticed with colours and animations.
