How to Use Periscope for Education

How to Use Periscope for Education
Periscope, Twitter's live video streaming app, is taking the education world by storm. Since its debut in early 2015, teachers and administrators are trying to figure out how to use Periscope for education and not just as a way for students to stream silly human tricks on live video to their friends. Before we can get into how to use Periscope for education, let's first define what exactly Periscope is and how you use it for those of you that are clueless for now. An Introduction to Periscope Periscope is a live video streaming app that Twitter purchased before Periscope launched to the public. That fact alone should make you stand up and take notice about how important a company like Twitter thinks that live streaming video really is in today's social media landscape. As such, those of us in education should probably take notice and figure out how we can use this app to our advantage. The great thing about Periscope is that it integrates directly with your Twitter account. @martypark

Responsibility vs Accountability Lately the word "responsibility" has been used interchangeably with the word "accountability" when it comes to teachers, teaching, and learning. Oh my! Why is it that teachers are held accountable for what learners are to learn?

40 of the last storybook towns left in Europe Much of old-world Europe has been swept away. Thanks to countless wars, the irresistible draw of modernization, and overwrought tourism infrastructure, the Europe of your dreams is harder to find than ever. However, there are still towns where you can experience that ‘old-world European charm’ almost like it was when Wordsworth and the Romantics first popularized vagabonding the Continent. These are places with well-preserved architecture dating back hundreds and even thousands of years. These are places where the negative impact of tourism isn’t allowed to run roughshod over local aesthetics. These are places where you can find that cobblestone-postcard view.

To Teach Effective Writing, Model Effective Writing I strive to teach my high school students the value of criticism, especially when it comes to improving their writing. To do so, I model how criticism continues to help me become a better writer. Earlier this year, for example, I shared a draft of one of my education feature articles, which included detailed feedback from an editor at a prominent media company. I asked my classes for advice on how to address several edits, dealing with sources, transitions, terminology, and structure. A few days later, I directed my budding writers to the much-improved final draft. This easy but worthwhile activity helped more of my students feel comfortable receiving criticism, and not view it as an affront.
