Kyle Pace

One thing that I think summer is great for in terms of professional learning is investing the time to better understand how you can use social media as an educator. Social media can be used as a great communication tool for a district, school, or a classroom.

Twitter Chats for Learning Easy vs. Hard

My Island View

One Education Twitter chat that precedes all others is #Edchat. For those who are not Twitter chat savvy, a Twitter chat originally was a discussion that uses a specific hashtag to conduct a real-time chat on a specific subject. Of course education chats are education-specific. On more than one occasion the owners of the chats presented me with a number of questions they wanted to post over the course of the chat.

Twitter Equals Growth Mindset?

The Principal of Change

This could be something to applied the idea of educators using Twitter. With the Twitter now implementing video in the service, it will be something that people will not only be open to learn, but I am sure will do interesting and new things with. It is probably one of the reasons why Twitter moved from the idea of “what are you doing”, to “what’s happening” in the update box. For those reasons Twitter will never connect all educators.

Nik Peachey

'I Learn Things on Twitter That I Don’t Learn at Harvard': Clint Smith on Inequality and Technology

Edsurge

Smith is not one for silence ( he delivered a TED talk about the “danger of silence” in 2014 , in fact) and has used digital venues including Twitter to encourage others to speak up and recognize how history shapes the present. And when it comes to Twitter, are users merely “preaching to the choir,” or is it truly an effective medium for changing minds? I remember that when I was training as a teacher, there was very little instruction about that in my teacher prep courses.
