Twitter Tuesday – October 18th

Next year the new Technology Application TEKS go into effect.  In reading through them I have begun to pick out areas I think my campus needs help in getting ready for the new TEKS.   One of these strands is:

Communication and collaboration. The student collaborates and communicates both locally and globally to reinforce and promote learning. The student is expected to:

6th grade 7th Grade 8th Grade

(A) participate in personal learning networks to collaborate with peers, experts, or others using digital tools such as blogs, wikis, audio/video communication, or other emerging technologies;

(A) create personal learning networks to collaborate and publish with peers, experts, or others using digital tools such as blogs, wikis, audio/video communication, or other emerging technologies; (A) create and manage personal learning networks to collaborate and publish with peers, experts, or others using digital tools such as blogs, wikis, audio/video communication, or other emerging technologies;

With this in mind I have put together this week’s Twitter Tuesday list to include resources to remind us why these tools are important:

Twitter Tuesday – Sept. 6th

Hashtags make twitter searchable.  They begin with the pound sign and are followed by text – ex. #tgif.   Anyone can create and add a hashtags to their tweet.  Conferences will designate a hashtag for their attendees to use so others attending the conference can keep up with the back channel conversations on twitter.    You don’t have to be a part of twitter to search for hashtags – just go to twitter.com and enter in the hashtag to search for any posts that contain that tag.  Some of my favorite hashtags to search for educational resources are #edchat and #edtech.

Here are a few articles that caught my attention on twitter this week.

 

Cell Phones –Texting Help

Remind 101:  A texting Service for Teachers

@laurieyingling: Remind101 – safely text message students and stay in touch with parents #edtech via @remind101
http://remind101.com/
Students and parents can sign up to receive text messages from the teacher.  Teachers never see the kids’ numbers and the kids never see the teacher’s numbers.  Think of this as another way to do a newsflash, especially fi you don’t use teacherweb.   And it is free!

 

Technology Websites:
