How I became a convert to Twitter • The teaching and education community on Twitter is truly inspirational...

 

Twitter is a fantastic collaborative tool. As teachers, how often do we get to visit other schools? In my experience, very rarely. Twitter has enabled me to collaborate with teachers in schools across the country. Combine this with cloud services such as DropBox and Google Docs and you can create and share resources and ideas quickly and easily.

 

The site is also a great place for discussion. It is amazing how creative you can be in 140 characters. Teachers, academics, technologists and other experts come together on Twitter to chat and discuss a whole range of topics – you can follow and contribute to these discussions by using hash tags.

Personalized Feedback With ScreenChomp - Education Community Blog

Personalized Feedback With ScreenChomp - Education Community Blog | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
Those who help students with their writing have a huge challenge. The writing process has many steps and students need their teacher's insight all along the way. With so many students needing so much guidance how can one teacher do it all? Some teachers are beginning to rely on podcasts and screencasts to give their students personalized feedback and focus that valuable one-on-one time on the most important concerns. Check out this fantastic explanation from ELA teacher Sarah Brown Wessling on how she is able to give her students the time and attention they need to improve their writing.

While Sarah uses an iPod and a voice recorder, for those of you with an iPad, a Dropbox account, and the free Screenchomp whiteboard app, you can use the same idea to give personalized feedback of your student's work without having to cart home stacks of papers. Check out the video below for an explanation of how you can do this.

Teacher Vodcasting and Flipped Classroom Network - A professional learning community for teachers

Teacher Vodcasting and Flipped Classroom Network - A professional learning community for teachers | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

It looks more and more like the "Flipped Classroom" is an idea that's here to stay for more than a little while. In two short years, it has spread quite widely and practitioners grow in number daily. Salman Khan, of Khan Academy fame has become a media darling. Formal research is just starting to catch up.

 

Despite all the hype, it seems to me there is something quite subtantial to the concept.

 

In any event, for those who are interested, I came across this Ning social network - "The Flipped Class Network". With 3600 members as of today, it will surely grow to be a very rich source of support and information. -JL
