How Social Is Too Social

We live in a time of social networking. Everyone is trying to increase their friends, connections, or expand their community with more followers. I agree being connected is extremely important at this time. Knowing what people are reading, what the trends are in your field, finding out about new initiatives; however, is there ever too much?



How productive can we be if we are forever tweeting, posting or responding? If we fail to give input do we become irrelevant? I am the queen of…

A Twitter Visit “In Real Life” – My Time with @NMHS_Principal



A few weeks ago, I had an incredible opportunity, that, while very much a ‘real world’ experience, had as much to do with the online world of social media connections as it did face to face…

What's All the Noise About?

What is all the noise about?

 

So, a cloud used to be the thing in the sky that blocked the sun and sprinkled rain on us, ie nimbus, cumulus, etc.  Now it is the amorphous “place” where our data and applications are stored…it is accessible from anywhere and everywhere…though we have not idea where that actually is.

 

Tweet, tweet…used to be the sounds a bird made on a sunny, spring afternoon.  Now it is thousands of short messages…

Social Networking in the Classroom with Twitter Using GroupTweet



Most middle school and many elementary students are already networking online, so why not teach them how to do it right? After all, elementary schools have the unique opportunity to introduce kids to social networking before they stumble upon the pitfalls of web-based socializing themselves.A great way to introduce elementary age students to social networking is through a school-based network. These controlled…

Building Your PLN: Who to Read, Who to Follow

We have spoken in the past about using social media to create a Personal Learning Network (PLN) of fellow educators that we can learn from and share with. Along those lines, I am pleased to pass along this post from Edudemic which lists 20 Ed Admin blogs that are quite popular, and for good reason. The authors post great stuff! While not everything is about #EdTech, there is definitely a bent towards…

The Big Bang - Adventures in Cyberspace

The universe is expanding.  That’s the core of the Big Bang Theory. As the cosmos gets older, everything in it moves apart.  Not to delve too much into such esoterica like Hubbles Law, I need to affirm - אני מאמין - I'm a believer.  In the last week I experienced something akin to this phenomenon in my own universe. Let’s call it the Virtual Big Bang.

 

Last Wednesday I participated in the first #jedchat., organized by  …

So what is #JEDCHAT anyway?

I hope that something historic will happen on Wednesday night. At 9 PM, the very first Twitter chat devoted to Jewish educators (as far as I am aware) will take place. There are many people out there on Twitter and in social media who are quite excited about this development.

 

But, at the suggestion of Ken Gordon from PEJE, I would like to take a step back and briefly explain what #JEDCHAT is. Twitter is a phenomenal…

Back to Twitter

The use of social networking media is ever-growing. Just click on the following link to see how it is being used in a Republican Presidential candidate debate http://mashable.com/2011/06/13/cnn-gop-debate-social-media/



I find the use of Twitter as a social networking site to be fascinating. In our times as the “disposable generation”, I find this tool to be most appropriate. When we move from one thing t the… Continue

Attending AIPAC from My House…The Power of the #Hashtag

Right now, over 10,000 delegates are gathered in Washington, DC, for the annual AIPAC Policy Conference. This event, hosted by the primary Pro-Israel lobby in the United States, brings together the movers and shakers from the American Jewish community for three days of intense discussions and presentations by major political leaders. On Sunday, President Obama addressed the conference, and tonight, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be speaking to the group. While I did not have the…

Tweet Tweet?

The world of Twiter seems fascinating at first glance. It allows users to post or blog about anything in a short and concise manner. People can stay connected to what interests them and be constantly updated about that topic or person. You can then often click on a link for more information about that tweet.



However, one can use the social networking agent to post about what you had for breakfast. This article written by Joe Posnanski points out that athletes use this to tell their… Continue

If Not Now, When - Blurring the Lines for the Future of Jewish Education

The dust is settling after the January JEA and NATE conferences.  Synagogue educators of all stripes and flavors are returning to our old haunts: Congregations and real life. A taste of what is possible still remains in our mouths, though. We need to ask: How do we keep the spirit that we felt in Mt. Laurel and Seattle, alive?  How do we move…

From Sinai to Cyberspace - the Jewish Educators Assembly Conference Looking at Tomorrow

As I reflect on the Jewish Educators Assembly conference that just ended, the lyrics of an old song pops into my head: “There’s something happening here. What it is ain’t exactly clear.” It’s not that we’re clueless when it comes to us knowing what Jewish education will look like in the future; it’s just that we’re not sure in what direction we’ll be traveling.



So…maybe we are a little clueless after all.



Let me back up for a moment. The close to 200 participants at the… Continue

The EdTech Hashtag. A must follow for all educators.

Whether you tweet or not, every educator should be following the twitter hashtag EdTech. If you are new to twitter, a hash tag or # is the way people post their messages or "tweets" to a group. In twitter you have followers who get each and every single tweet of yours. However, with a hashtag your tweets go to anyone, not only your followers, who follow that hashtag. For a beginners guide to twitter click here to… Continue
