How to Use New-Media Tools in Your Classroom (Video Playlist) | Edutopia - 1 views

      Not really finding this video as helpful.  Twitter has been a round for a while and I am very acquainted with its uses.  Note - video was created in 2009...four years ago!

      There is NO WAY it is acceptable to friend our students on facebook.  I agree that we should not make social media the elephant in the room.  I just do not see how it is appropriate to be friends with a student on facebook.

      I would challenge kids to use their OWN digital devices (iPhones, etc) and see if they can make connections with what they see to what they are learning in school!

      I am IN LOVE with this idea!  And now that I know about Remind101, I can actually communicate via text WITHOUT giving out my own cell phone number!
  • Disposable fun "An idea for teaching kids about angles in math class is having a scavenger hunt and giving them a disposable camera so they can take pictures of different angles."
  • For math, I would use a Voki to explain the problems to my class.

      I find that having a "back channel" conversation during a presentation to actually do the opposite.  I am so busy commenting on what was just presented that I miss what is being talked about next.
  • "I think it's a good idea to use Skype (10) for learning about other states and countries.
    • Tricia Hunt
       
      I like the idea of Skyping with people from other countries.  I could get the kids to come up with a list of questions first.  My biggest question is HOW do I connect/find someone from another country?

  • FreePoverty is a geography game that presents you with a city or landmark. You have a short amount of time (5-10 seconds) to locate it on a map. The closer you are to the target, the more cups of water are donated to people in need around the world. (FreePoverty is seeking a nonprofit organization to work with to help turn the site's revenues into water donations.)

The Best 1:1 Device is a Good Teacher | Edutopia - 56 views

  •  
    "Over the course of two years, I, along with the Burlington Public Schools tech team, had the opportunity to meet and connect with over one hundred schools. These discussions would usually involve what device works best in the classroom and how the iPad is affecting teaching and learning outcomes. Frequently this conversation focuses on the most effective hardware for teaching and learning. While this is an important decision to make, it should not be the focus. In fact, the best devices a school can employ are great teachers."
