In the 21st century, technology has changed the ways in which we communicate and go about our lives. Very few educators would disagree with the notion that technology has dramatically changed the teaching and learning process. With the help of some fellow teachers, here is a short list of the top 12 ways technology has changed the way we learn:

Parenting & Social Media Part 2 — What Every Parent Should Know about Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and MoreAs a parent, do you ever feel like your teen or young adult children are speaking a completely different language when they start talking about Facebook or Twitter? Have you any idea what they are “blogging” about? As if text message abbreviations aren’t bad enough, now there’s even more on the internet for your kids to get into.
At the end of the Social Media for Social Good: A How-To Guide for Nonprofits is a nine-page “Nonprofit Tech Checklist” which I have copied and pasted below. Each item on the list is discussed in the book and some items won’t make sense unless you have read the book, but most will. I hope you find it useful.
Even though blogging is becoming more and more popular among scientists and researchers, I still notice some doubts and hesitation among my peers when it comes to blogging. Some people react by saying " Who am I to speak up? ", some think it is an (innocent) waste of time on the internet, others think of it as shameless self-promotion.
If you’re too busy to read the articles on the ICT in Education website , you can listen to them instead. Thanks to a neat little widget from Odiogo , each article has a “Listen Now” button at the top of it. Click that, and you will be able to listen to the article read out to you.

The Choices Program
I regularly share a few posts from around the Web related to ESL or EFL that have caught my attention:
When you see as many apps as we do at RWW, you begin to feel like it's all been done. So many of the everyday jobs for apps to do can already be done by at least one app (if not dozens). How many ways can you share photos with your friends?
In yet another attempt to get at the enormous backlog I have of sites worth sharing, I’ve recently begin a regular feature called “The Week In Web 2.0.”
The next free online social activity will take place 29 August - 7 October 2011 on Share&Learn Create an account and then join the Autumn Group We'll keep you updated with news about the programme there (Limited to 100 participants) The revolution that is social media means that now everyone can have access to the Social Web and a range of services and applications to support their own as well as their team's learning, performance and productivity - in order to work (and learn) smarter.
I usually just do a year-end list on Web 2.0 Applications For Education and many other topics, but it gets a little crazy having to review all of my zillion posts at once. So, to make it easier for me — and perhaps, to make it a little more useful to readers — I’m going to be publishing mid-year lists, too.
