The Why and How of Using Facebook For Educators - No Need to be Friends At All! | The E... - 1 views

  •  
    "first take a look at just a few reasons why you should reconsider: 1. The fact is, the majority of your students and their parents are probably already on Facebook 2. Even when schools have a policy against being "friends" online, there are tools you can use that won't violate policy 3. Despite what you may hear, there are strong privacy settings options that you can set up so only those that you want can access your information 4. We have an obligation as educators to model appropriate online behavior and learn right along our students"

Everloop: Home - 1 views

  •  
    Built for tweens, Everloop is the next step beyond social networking, to what we call social looping. Tweens really shouldn't be on open, social networks. Everloop's "social looping" platform - the first of its kind -- creates a privacy loop around kids' connections. It's totally free. And kids are free from anonymous intruders. They can participate in collaborative learning and school projects, share information about their sports teams and clubs, play games, customize their profile pages, and communicate in real time with friends they know who are part of their loop. There is so much negativity around kids and their online behavior. But we all know that good things come from collaborating with each other, sharing information, and connecting with people who have the same interests we have. So at Everloop, we're recognizing that kids want to be online, and our goal is to get kids' online time focused on connecting with a purpose. Through the partnerships we're signing, Everloop will be the platform kids groups use to actively promote, entertain, and inform. Loaded with educational resources, entertainment opportunities, and apps, we'll foster content sharing, innovation, and entrepreneurial development. All within a private loop. As kids interests grow, their loops can intersect with other loops - but never without the knowledge of their parents, who have their own console login and can monitor behavior at whatever level they decide is appropriate for their children. They are always informed before a child tries to expand his or her loop, and they are always in control.

Jessica Gross: Embracing the Twitter Classroom - 0 views

  •  
    "Teaching students to learn from and with each other is a wise acknowledgment that more and more, students are relying on their peers for information. Sixty-five percent of Americans aged 12-17 and 67 percent of those aged 18-32 use social networking sites, according to the Pew Research Center. Students' lives are infused with each other's viewpoints. Teachers and professors like Parry and Camplese are taking group work to the next logical step: incorporating social media into their classrooms. In lieu of fighting teens' use of networking sites, they are communicating with students in a language that they understand. "

Educational Networking - home - 1 views

  •  
    ""Educational Networking" is the use of social networking technologies for educational purposes. Because the phrase "social networking" can carry some negative connotations for educators, the phrase "educational networking" may be a way of more objectively discussing the pedagogical value of these tools. The original URL for this site (http://socialnetworksined.wikispaces.com) still works, but http://www.EducationalNetworking.com is now the main URL."

LearnCentral - 1 views

  •  
    LearnCentral is a new social learning network for education, sponsored by Elluminate. More than a social network or a learning community, this free, open environment represents the next logical step of combining asynchronous social networking and the ability to store, organize, and find educational resources with the live, online meeting and collaboration provided by Elluminate technology. Not just for Elluminate customers, LearnCentral is for any educator who is passionate about teaching and learning and wants to find and connect with like-minded colleagues to share content, develop best practices, and collaborate on a global level. While still in its early stages, LearnCentral has the potential to make a significant historical difference in how educators work together for professional development in their own careers.

Dweeber - 0 views

  •  
    Dweeber.com was started in spring of 2007 to allow young people to use the growing phenomenon of social networking to actually help them learn, study, and do homework, as opposed to getting in the way of it. We spent many months researching and envisioning the coolest site we could create that would be engaging to use, and simultaneously empower youth to share learning and help bring out their best. Homework happens - Dweeber helps get it done faster!
