Teacher PD: Purposeful Tinkering and Application

Teacher PD: Purposeful Tinkering and Application | Social Media Learning | Scoop.it
Teachers and librarians, like their students, need hands-on experience with tools and with playing to learn as that helps them build creative confidence. (https://www.edutopia.org/blog/crafting-professional-development-maker-educators-colleen-graves)

Teachers, during PD, should be provided with time, resources, and materials with which to play. It sets the expectation that they will be active agents of their own learning. It gives them the message it is okay to play and experiment with the materials; that tinkering is often needed as a part of learning new skills.

8 of The Best Concept Mapping Apps for Teachers

8 of The Best Concept Mapping Apps for Teachers | Social Media Learning | Scoop.it
Concept mapping or mind mapping is a visual representation of data in such a way that highlights connections and relationships between elements. Concept maps can be used by students to visualize their thoughts, generate ideas in a brainstorming session, and illustrate concepts. They are also useful for organizing ideas to facilitate recall and enhance comprehension. Needless to mention that concept map apps are also great for taking visual notes and capturing thoughts on the go. The collection below features some of our favourite iPad apps for creating and sharing concept maps.

Stages of Being a Maker Learner | Social Media Learning | Scoop.it
So what is making? I've proposed that the heart of making is creating new and unique things. I also realize that in order for this type of making to occur, there needs to be some scaffolding so that maker learners can develop a foundation of knowledge and skills. The end result, though should be maker…

Lianne Picot's curator insight, September 9, 2015 7:23 PM

Today's classrooms are experiencing a shift unlike any we have seen before. Tech savvy kids are often having to use outdated equipment and some have skills well beyond those of their teachers. I love this idea of enabling students to utilise digital storytelling as a way to show and share their learning! Developing subject matter expertise as well as storytelling , project planning and collaboration skills is beneficial not only to their immediate learning needs but are key skills for their futures. Putting the learning into the hands of the students through technology AND storytelling?  Seems like a marvellous idea to me!

Patricia Stitson's curator insight, September 10, 2015 9:43 AM

In the last few years, I have so often found myself in groups of 'like-minded' people, whether that be a small local group of social entrepreneurial women or the famed TEDx community.

The harsh reality that we so often overlook is that the future success of humanity lays in the ways that we learn to collaborate and, yes cooperate with 'not-like-minded' individuals AND groups.

Storytelling, and listening to stories, is a crucial component of the growth of collaboration. We need to re-integrate the importance of storytelling into the fabric of our schools, organizations, and communities. Through coaching some kids to give TEDx talks, I learned a wonderful lesson. The act of storytelling empowers a youth to believe in their ability not only to tell their story but to create the story of their lives.

Video games that work better than school - The Hechinger Report ~ by Greg Toppo

Video games that work better than school - The Hechinger Report ~ by Greg Toppo | Social Media Learning | Scoop.it
This strange procession continues through 100 levels, with no explanation or elaboration. Addition, multiplication, division, fractions—all of them appear, without fanfare or explanation. By game’s end, at level 100, you’ve moved seamlessly, baby step by baby step, from a cute baby dragon eating a spiky two-headed lizard, to this: “2 over x plus d over e equals b over x,” which you solve, fearlessly and perhaps even a bit impatiently, in exactly 14 steps. You are 4 years old.

Getting Creative With Video in the Classroom

Getting Creative With Video in the Classroom | Social Media Learning | Scoop.it

"While watching the Oscars tonight, I was intrigued to see a promotion that Walmart was running to celebrate the craft of film making. I don’t normally pay a lot of attention to  commercials, but these ads managed to catch my attention, and I think that they have some interesting potential for teachers who are looking to add some creativity to video projects in their classroom.

Walmart contacted four award-winning directors, Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg (Superbad, Neighbors), Antoine Fuqua (Southpaw, The Magnificent Seven), and Marc Forster (Monster’s Ball, The Kite Runner). They sent each of them a receipt with the same six items and challenged them to make a one minute movie that was centered around the six items on the receipt. You can learn more here, but take a look at the videos below to see what these talented directors came up with…

The three stories are very different, but they would be, wouldn’t they? I mean, if you challenged your students to do something like this, the results you got would likely be very different too. Wouldn’t they?  Because although the parameters are the same for every student, this is still a very open-ended activity that just screams for a creative outcome."

How to Show GPS Coordinates on iPhone

How to Show GPS Coordinates on iPhone | Social Media Learning | Scoop.it
All iPhone models have a built-in GPS device which aids in navigation and allows for pin-point precision for location detection. While most users who interact with location and navigation features on their iPhone will be using the Maps applications, it can also be helpful to get exact GPS coordinates for latitude and longitude, perhaps for placing into a dedicated GPS tracker or for finding particular coordinates for a location on a map.

We’ll show you how to retrieve and display GPS coordinates on iPhone using native applications, there are no third party apps or downloads required.


Before we begin, some of you are probably wondering why anyone cares about GPS coordinates when the iPhone has directions capabilities and a Maps application. It’s not relevant to everyone, but knowing precise GPS coordinates can be helpful for runners, joggers, skiers and snowboarders, explorers, hikers, geocaching (cheating!), geologists, archeologists, realtors, surveyors, photographers, investigators, spies, and many other hobbies and professions.

Using Timely Text Messages To Curb Missed Assignments and Class - Mind/Shift

Using Timely Text Messages To Curb Missed Assignments and Class - Mind/Shift | Social Media Learning | Scoop.it
My bank sends me a text alert when my account balance is low. My wireless company sends me a text alert when I’m about to use up my monthly data. Somebody — I guess the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration? –sends me a text alert when it’s going to rain a whole lot.

A few clever researchers said: “Hey! What if we could send text alerts to parents when students miss class or don’t turn in their homework?” And what do you know, it worked.

6 Types of Blended Learning

6 Types of Blended Learning | Social Media Learning | Scoop.it
Blended Learning is not so much an innovation as it is a natural by-product of the digital domain creeping into physical boundaries. As digital and social media become more and more prevalent in the life of learners, it was only a matter of time before learning became “blended” by necessity.

That said, there’s a bit more to Blended and “Hybrid” Learning than throwing in a little digital learning.
