6 Ways Digital Learning is Changing Teaching Email Share December 1, 2011 - by Tom Vander Ark 0 Email Share I visited Wireless Generation , a leading education technology company, in Brooklyn this week. As someone who has, within the last decade, been a student and a teacher, as well as administrative support, I was very interested by the parts in your book when you made it clear that educational institutions are evolving. There will be a half a dozen significant changes in teaching in this decade. Model differentiation will proliferate over the next decade as school developers invent new ways to blend online and onsite experience around competency-based pathways. The second profound change underway is the shift from the individual practitioner to more collaborative and team based teaching. A third and related point is that staffing models will be more differentiated with specific roles and different levels. Four, we’re seeing a general shift from didactic instruction to more interactive learning experiences.

Sur Twitter, êtes-vous sûrs d’utiliser les bons mots-dièse ? | Formation et culture numérique – Thot Cursus | Par Pierre Nobis | email@example.com Le service de microblogging et de réseautage social Twitter génère une pléthore d’applications tierces permettant d’analyser entre autres fonctionnalités l’impact des messages publiés via cette plateforme. Hashtagify.me est un outil en ligne qui sert à évaluer votre choix de hashtagou mot-dièse pour reprendre la proposition lexicale de la Commission générale de terminologie et de néologisme (France) : en réalité comme l’ont justement relevé plusieurs commentateurs, il aurait été à priori plus exact de parler de « mot-croisillon » car cela correspond graphiquement au symbole utilisé devant les mots clefs sur Twitter, le croisillon ayant effectivement les deux barres transversales horizontales, alors que celles du dièse sont montantes (♯). Un outil de diagnostic Lorsque vous rédigez un message sur Twitter, vous y associez donc un mot-dièse. Hashtagify permet aussi d’identifier facilement les six comptes « influents » ayant recours au même hashtag.
8 Essential Apps for Your Brand's Facebook Page Alison Driscoll is an interactive copywriter and social media consultant who specializes in . She authors a blog at alisondriscoll.com. Not even a year ago, Facebook was still being dismissed as a silly site intended to help college kids slack off. An effective Facebook Page not only attracts fans, but is sticky so that fans keep coming back and may even share the content on the Page. Applications 1. This app was originally a Facebook feature that they then converted into an application; as such, it is sponsored and maintained by Facebook and less likely to break or be abandoned. This notification system is important for staying on their radar and is more visible than an RSS Reader, or mini-blog as I like to call it, but lacks many formatting capabilities; it's best to think of Notes and an RSS Reader as working hand in hand. 2. I may have jumped ahead a bit with the Notes recommendation, but I am assuming that most companies have, or could have, a blog. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Britney Spears

The Virtues of Video What if your struggling students could view demonstrations of difficult math concepts as often as necessary? Picture your students asking questions of an expert diver as she explores Australia's Great Barrier Reef. Or imagine a motivated student in a remote location attending an advanced placement physics class without leaving home. Much of what we define as education can now take place anywhere, anytime—and much of it can be acquired free through resources available over the Internet. Videoconferencing: Engaging Millenials As early as the 1980s, students in rural areas of Alaska, Washington, Texas, and Oregon connected to teachers through interactive videoconferencing. Interactive videoconferencing is often a good solution for resource-strapped school districts that can't afford to hire more teachers. When learners are engaged, retention occurs. Distance Classes: The Power of Access the process begins when a school identifies a learning need they can't serve on their own. References
Ecrire en 140 caractères : la twittérature, gadget ou nouveau genre ? Twitter a vu le jour en 2006. A l'origine, la plateforme gratuite de microblogging, qui rassemble aujourd'hui environ un demi-milliard de personnes, est conçue pour l'écriture et la diffusion de messages de 140 caractères maximum. Mais, petit à petit, un usage alternatif, plus créatif se fait jour et les formules ciselées envahissent la twittosphère, un peu sur le modèle des keitai shosetsu (de roman"/shosetsu - et "mobile"/keitai), textes japonais rédigés par SMS. Bien que pleinement inscrits dans le numérique, les twittérateurs revendiquent leur place dans une histoire littéraire jalonnée des contraintes que s'imposent les auteurs, de l'Ouvroir de Littérature Potentielle (OuLiPo) aux cadavres exquis des surréalistes en passant par les haïkus japonais ou les Nouvelles en trois lignes de Félix Fénéon. Micronouvelles érotiques Micronouvelles érotiques, twiller (thriller sur Twitter, inventé par l'Américain Matt Ritchell), microcontes... ont ainsi vu le jour sur Twitter, explique M.

Social Media's Slow Slog Into the Ivory Towers of Academia - Josh Sternberg - Technology Underpinning a disdain for social media in higher education is the assumption that incoming students have an inherent aptitude for new technologies "If you took a soldier from a thousand years ago and put them on a battlefield, they'd be dead," Howard Rheingold, a professor teaching virtual community and social media at Stanford University, told me one morning via Skype. "If you took a doctor from a thousand years ago and put them in a modern surgical theater, they would have no idea what to do. Terms like "digital native" and "digital immigrant" have been used by marketers as a way of differentiating generations. This tale is not new. For the last several years, teaching social media has been reactionary, found either in non-matriculated night classes for the working professional or in business schools for the budding marketer to learn and hone his or her online and social marketing skills. But as social interactions and technologies mature, there has been a swing in the pendulum.
Favorite Tweets of 2011 I would like to take a moment to thank all of the outstanding educators who are part of my PLN and invest in making me better each and every day. The 10 people who influence me the most and on a daily basis...... I have never met! As this year comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to share my 5 favorite tweets of 2011 and a brief explanation as to why. Mary Beth Hertz offers some important advice when she tweeted, "Be patient but relentless in helping colleagues build connections!" Tom Whitby shares some meaningful advice in his blog, My Island View, in which he defines What's A Connected Educator? I could not agree more with Nancy and her straightforward tweet about technology integration. Thank you David for sharing this outstanding quote. Wow! "It's about your kids' future, not yours! There is nothing like a tweet that speaks the indisputable truth.
