At the Apple Distinguished Educator Institute 2013 in Cork I was lucky enough to spend two times a whole hour with people from the Duarte team (the people behind some great iBook Author Text Books and The Inconvenient Truth Slideshow). Below I will share some tips and tricks that have helped me through the writing and designing process."

Nik Peachey: How I use social media for my professional development

Nik Peachey: How I use social media for my professional development | Web 2.0 Tools in the EFL Classroom | Scoop.it

The issue of how we use social media for our own development as teachers and as digitally skilled individuals is of vital importance, not just because it can enable us to keep developing as teachers through the content, ideas, resources and above all people it gives us access to, but also because the way we use digital media for our own development should guide and influence the way we use it with our students and build their digital literacies and communication skills.

Laura Montenegro's curator insight, September 10, 2016 11:05 PM
Talking about professional development, it is important to look always for ways in order to improve our study and profesional skills as teachers and as digital individuals. With this social media can provides us athentic input and materials such as articles, games, books, etc. For our own development and it is also proved that it can guide and influence students perseptions and interests. The autor divided social media into three different sections: Information in ( the input, links and places where to find information), information processing ( the process of learning and capture more and more information) and finally, information out (when you share what you've learned). In my opinion it is very important to share our results because in this way we are going to realize what we really learn and ow we did it, also to understand how our learning process works and how it does not.
