Learning And Teaching for Understanding - A day of learning with PZ Sydney Network - Th... - 2 views

    Today I had the pleasure of joining over three-hundred educators for a day of learning and sharing. That this was a Sunday and that the event was organised as a free event for educators by educators speaks volumes of the quality and care that educators bring to their role. 

Edmodo | Where Learning Happens | Sign up, Sign In - 4 views

      Edmoto is a great way to introduce students to online communities. It models Facebook, which could be dangerous if teachers are trying to create learning community and not just a social community. However, it is a great stepping stone into what online courses involve.
    • Rebecca Brink
      I agree that it models Facebook quite closely. I saw this as a perk in the light that it was easy for them to grasp how to use.

    "Edmodo helps connect all learners with the people and resources needed to reach their full potential."
    I tried using this as a Learning Management System (LMS) a few years ago.  I was introduced to it through a Science Technology and Mathematics (STEM) Institute I attended.  I found it to be beneficial in aiding students with personal responsibility, by having information available at all times to access.  I moved away from using it when Google Documents became a feature for all of our students.  It was much easier to share that way.  We know use Haiku Learning that has many similar features but allows for Google Drive being linked.
    This is great for having class discussions that you want to be private, so that you as the teacher can facilitate the conversation.
    online outlet for student collaboration
    Students can take quizzes, share ideas, work on assignments and discover new resources.
    I would use this community tool for cooperative learning activities. The value of other perspectives from different backgrounds is paramount as students collaborate on a given topic.

Hastac - 0 views

    HASTAC ("haystack") is a network of individuals and institutions inspired by the possibilities that new technologies offer us for shaping how we learn, teach, communicate, create, and organize our local and global communities. We are motivated by the conviction that the digital era provides rich opportunities for informal and formal learning and for collaborative, networked research that extends across traditional disciplines, across the boundaries of academe and community, across the "two cultures" of humanism and technology, across the divide of thinking versus making, and across social strata and national borders.

Edmodo Reaches 10 Million Users | Edmodo - Safe Social Networking for Schools - 1 views

    • Euchay Horsman
      My daughter's 5th Grade class used edmodo. I loved it because I joined them and was able to see what the class was doing and how my child interacted with her peers and teacher.  I recommend edmodo to grade school teachers and encourage parents to join their children's classrooms.  It is such a good way to be involved in your children's education.

Teens, kindness and cruelty on social network sites | Pew Research Center's Internet & ... - 3 views

  • Social media use has become so pervasive in the lives of American teens that having a presence on a social network site is almost synonymous with being online. Fully 95% of all teens ages 12-17 are now online and 80% of those online teens are users of social media sites. Many log on daily to their social network pages and these have become spaces where much of the social activity of teen life is echoed and amplified—in both good and bad ways.

    Free Social Teaching and Learning Network focused solely on education
    Hi Jason - This was fascinating. Seems that you have to submit a request and then wait to be "accepted." I "submitted" so I guess I'll wait to see what happens. Thanks for sharing! Jen/Buffalo, MN
    Jason and Jen, I have submitted a request as well. The student/teacher ratio intro was effective. Alan @ Cambridge, UK

Ning - Create a Social Networking Site with Ning, the Best Social Site Platform - 3 views

      It's social networking, but you invite the audience. No creepers, only those people you invite.
    Good for setting up a safe social networking location for students in a class. Students must be invited to join and you, as the instructor, are the only one to send out invites. Great for student blogging.

    Ning is a social networking site that offers either a private or public place to communicate. I like to look at it as Facebook on steriods.
    This is a social networking site like Facebook, but you can create either a public or private networking site.
    Make sure you use that license agreement....must be at least 13 years old.
    Ning is a social networking site. This would be great to use in the classroom since you can set up a private social network. Can be used with any grade level to help share interests and information.
    "Create a perfect social website to bring people together. With your own look and feel, and choice of social integration, Ning opens new doors to revenue and involvement."
