Tools for Teachers II
I have just finished working on a graphic that I have made specifically for readers of Educational Technology and Mobile Learning ( of course anyone else is allowed to use it ). I am not the kind of guy to ask for favors in return for freebies I publish here. I honestly hate it and I have seen this practice in different blogs and websites. They tell you you can for instance download a certain PDF or eBook for free provided you register with them using your email or to like them on Facebook..etc. I would understand it from bloggers outside the educational arena but I can not swallow it when I see someone claiming to be an educator committed to the cause of education and yet providing such kind of services. I have recently been working on certain eBooks and other things ( let it be surprise ) that I will give you as a gift for the new year.
Twitter , without a doubt, has become the social network for educators to take their professional development into their own hands. Twitter allows teachers to connect with other educators from around the world, join discussions related to their interests and have a steady stream of resources (to help them teach and learn) available to them whenever, whereever and however. Creating a network on Twitter has catapulted educators to be part of a connected world where learning happens anytime, help is only a tweet away, collaboration partners meet and communicate, conversations that directly or indirectly impact their physical lives take place 24/7. Twitter is helping educators gain many 21st century skills and literacies which could easily transfer to their classrooms. So the next question is… How do you bring Twitter into your K-8 Classroom?
Should teachers expect privacy regarding their cell phones? Not in this case, a New Jersey appeals court ruled in a claim involving a sex crime. An ex-student went to police to report middle-school teacher Patrick DeFranco had committed sex acts with him when DeFranco was his teacher. To back up his claim, the former student agreed to phone DeFranco and let police listen in on the call.

Using multimedia in the classroom has become imperative in the 21st century classroom. Students tend to show more engagement and motivation when you play a video in the class.Given this importance of audio visual materials in education, more and more websites are created to provide video resources for educators. I have already compiled a list of 80 educational video resources to make it handy for teachers and even students to access the different video platforms and browse the materials they want. TED ( Technology, Entertainment, Design ) is one of my favorite video resource I use quite often.
We need to prepare our students to act responsibly when the moment of stupidity arrives.We should not just hand students technology and expect them to use it responsibly. They are kids after all. Here is a fictitious story to show my point: imagine three fifth grade students check out a Flip video camera to work on a class project during lunch recess. They want to show the principle of an arc by showing a student swinging on a swing.

We often hear about tech-savvy educators and administrators who have an array of best practices and whose love for technology is evident. But as anyone who’s ever been part of a school or district knows, not all teachers and administrators are as comfortable or familiar with technology.
