How Social Media Is the New Educator Gone are the days of attending school with a backpack filled with pens, pads, and weighty books filled with the student’s scribbles, or worse, explicit drawings. A return to education has resulted through a need for the latest and greatest gadgets and an incestuous need to network using social media. The good thing about today’s web-savvy students is that the importance of education is back in the spotlight. Sure, prom is still a priority, but competition for success within the classroom has become fierce. Laptops and social networking have become just as essential in everyday classrooms as teachers. The atmosphere established in today’s public and private education system insinuates that a student’s best is no longer good enough. Performing arts programs are benefiting too. Biryukov Academy has maintained a social cause platform, backed by scientific studies, on the various neurological benefits derived from art, foreign language, music, and theatre classes.

Criador do Twitter é Vegano Detalhes Categoria pai: Notícias Publicado em Domingo, 30 Maio 2010 18:06 Acessos: 6754 Quem iria imaginar que o Twitter seria tão amigo dos animais? O cofundador da rede, Biz Stone, se tornou vegan em 2001 depois de visitar a Farm Sanctuary. Biz Stone também está promovendo lanches vegetarianos para escolas. Biz Stone obviamente acredita no poder do alimento, porque a sede do Twitter em São Francisco oferece almoços e lanches veganos gratuitos aos seus empregados. Mas, além de seu fundador, o Twitter é amigo dos animais porque você pode ser parte de uma comunidade que se importa com os animais.

The Social Media Phenomenon Encroaching Into the Classroom Educators are finding a new way to organize and collaborate resources for transition to the Common Core, curriculum mapping, and classroom activities. On its surface, Pinterest appears to be cluttered by posts predominantly from women looking for fun fashion, kitschy designs, savory recipes they may never bake but “like” nevertheless, and do-it-yourself beauty remedies. The site, which allows users to create digital bulletin boards and to post images of quite literally anything they want, now sits third behind Twitter and Facebook in social media popularity, garnering well over 100 million users in 2012 thus far alone. As with any social platform, however, once you sift through Pinterest’s initial onslaught of chaotic posts, you’ll find a new medium for sharing, collaborating and expanding your personal learning network (PLN).

Frontload Your Lessons with Social Media Written by Mark Brumley At a recent education conference I discussed a simple yet powerful strategy…frontload your lessons with social media. Here’s how it works. First of all, you need some way for your students to communicate online (or via texting). Next, introduce a topic that will be discussed the next day and assign an online discussion as homework. Go to this URL and have an online discussion. The topic that always comes up is what to do about chat-speak and other bad online grammar. Finally, you need to assess whether or not the classroom discussions are more meaningful with the frontloading the night before. This concept may seem simple but the results I have seen are amazing.

A Printable Guide to Social Media [#Infographic] Cram a dozen educators into a conference room and ask them to name the most popular social media tools used by students, and it’s a safe bet everybody at the table could rattle off the top two: Facebook and Twitter. But those are far from the only online applications making inroads in schools. As administrators warm to engaging students through social media, the list of potential resources at their disposal grows longer by the day. Facebook and Twitter are the obvious choices. Of course, if naming the latest social media tools seems tough, learning how to use them all is harder still. As the editors at Edudemic were right to point out, the infographic, which was written with small businesses in mind, has a few glaring omissions — Pinterest, for one. Is there a social media application not listed here that you’d like to learn more about?
