Social media find place in classroom. By Greg Toppo, USA TODAY Updated 7/25/2011 12:24 PM Among educators, Eric Sheninger is something of a social networking hero. By Todd Plitt, USA TODAY By Todd Plitt, USA TODAY The principal of New Milford (N.J.) He replaced the school's "static, boring" website with what has become a heavily used Facebook page, and his teachers encourage students to research, write, edit, perform and publish their work online. Sheninger is one of a growing number of educators who don't just tolerate social networking in school — he encourages it, often for educational purposes. STORY: Web restrictions draw ire of some educators "The Internet as we know it is the 21st century," he says.

He and others say working online also pushes education beyond the confines of school, allowing kids to broaden discussion of their work. Challenging a new generation Sheninger and others also say it is naïve to think that kids raised online will respond to school the same way as previous generations. Karen Cator, the U.S. 100 Ways to Teach with Twitter. This handful of resources provide about 100 different ideas for, and examples of, using Twitter in the classroom. It’s been almost 8 months since I published the post, “6 Examples of Using Twitter in the Classroom”, about uses of the popular micro-blogging tool in the instructional setting. This post generated a lot of traffic, and continues to attract hundreds of viewers every week.

Since that brief posting, I’ve come across a lot of articles containing examples and suggestions for using Twitter in instructional applications. I’ve combed through many of these and tried to boil down the redundancies to create a rich set of idea-laden resources. I also want to mention these 100 Serious Twitter Tips for Academics, which are worth reviewing to learn more and plan your approach to using Twitter in (and out of) the classroom. Here are the original “6 Examples” from last June’s post: About Kelly Walsh Print This Post.

Multimedia English Classroom -Real English for Real Life (Learn English free) Enhanced Classroom Hearing - Poor Acoustics. There are two critical aspects involved in auditory learning: acoustics and the hearing ability of the child. Acoustics measure the impact that the physical environment will have on that most important piece of the learning process. The acoustic environment can dramatically decrease the effectiveness of the teaching. Students in today’s classrooms are unable to understand 25 to 30 percent of what their teacher said because of excessive noise and reverberation. i It is important to have some understanding of the contributing factors that determine the success (or failure) of an acoustical environment. Ambient Noise In a classroom, ambient noise is all the background noise going on in the classroom; externally generated and internally generated.

Ambient noise is also generated from within the school itself. Reverberation The second component of acoustics is reverberation.

D- ... Using Google Docs in the EFL classroom. This term I made a decision to switch over to Google Docs to deal with all the written assignments my students do. Now, if you are not sure what Google Docs is - and don’t worry, you are not alone, Google doesn’t do the best job in the world to promote it - it’s an online document editor that can replace Microsoft Word if you don’t plan on doing anything too fancy such as inserting complex tables or pictures into your document.

Let’s be honest though, much of what we do with word processing software isn’t that complex, often it’s just text and I rarely ask my students to do more than that, most of the time they are just submitting text essays. Now, this term I had about fifty students on a higher level EFL/British culture course and they had to submit weekly learning journals and semi-regular essays. Another thing I’ve found useful with Google Docs is the ability to use it for document storage and folder sharing. Oh, and Google docs is excellent for creating surveys and questionnaires.

January 26, 2014 Close reading is definitely a "survival skill" particularly in a world drowned in information. Close reading is all about reading differently, it is reading for deep understanding through paying attention to what others would normally oversight.

Being a close reader entails focus and dedication to your reading material. It empowers readers to delve deeper into the latent meanings of text searching for cues that make the reading a totally different experience, one that resembles the detective work. Close reading is also about critical reading, reading that does not take things at face value but rather investigates for what is hidden between the lines.

A few months ago I shared with you here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning a set of interesting posters on close reading and today am adding another wonderful visual created by We Are Teachers. This is a great poster to use with your students in class to help them learn more about the art of close reading. Kahoot! | Game-based blended learning & classroom response system.

52 Of The Best Apps For Your Classroom In 2015 by TeachThought Staff This post was sponsored by CK-12, a non-profit foundation that creates and aggregates high quality curated STEM content. What are the best apps for your classroom? The best little bits of software to use tomorrow, in your school, to make your classroom go? This is, strangely, not a frequent topic for us.

We are more interested in helping you push your classroom towards something unrecognizable–something that reflects the extraordinary change the world has seen but many public schools have somehow resisted. Something that centers students, helps them learn what’s worth understanding, and then equips them–and you–to make that learning happen. But what if that’s not your bag? This is the reality that, if statistics don’t mislead, most of you face on a daily basis. Let us know in the comments any that were what-were-they-thinking-missing-that-one? 52 Of The Best Apps For Your Classroom In 2015. 50 Apps for the Foreign Language Classroom.
