Teachers Bring Text Messaging to the Classroom

Teachers Bring Text Messaging to the Classroom | English in the Classroom | Scoop.it
Social media and smartphone-based learning help typically shy students find their voice.

 

“While the kids are reading novels, watching movies or listening to podcasts, there’s this awesome discussion taking place without anyone saying a word,” Gianotti says. “Students who are typically quiet during traditional discussions really like Celly, because it levels the playing field for them. It’s totally transformed my classroom.”

 

Fellow Lowell High School English/language arts teacher Kevin Deal uses Twitter in a similar fashion. Deal writes hashtags on the board that address the themes of the day’s lesson; his students then use the hashtags to track their conversations on the microblog, both with other students and the larger Twitter universe.

LucyLouiseCarruthers's insight:

1. How would you use the technology to advance your learning? 

2. Think about what the former resources you would use without technology then what you use now. Compare the two and create a concept map showing the positives and negatives of the two ways.
