You can’t blame them for trying, can you?
This is what we call authentic learning of social media.
This week, I invited Scott Meech in for a chat. Scott & I have a mutual admiration society, I think, in place. I admire him — he likes to chat with me! So, in a way, this conversation was a Christmas gift to me — a chat with Scott. He is VERY VERY knowledgeable about Apps – so I invite you to sit back and enjoy!

I’ve had this kind of sick feeling in my stomach over the past few days. I don’t know if I’m getting tired of social media, over-loaded with social media, or just disenfranchised with it altogether. I’m just not satisfied with what’s happening there. And I’m starting to wonder if we’re setting the right example for our students with our own social media behavior.
It seems like this issue will never die, just when you think it will. Is it okay to be “friends” with students online? @Stumpteacher Josh Stumpenhorst joins us to share some cool videos and dive into the Facebook/teacher/student debate. Should we work harder at keeping our professional and personal online personas separate? Do we need strategies for teachers to avoid making stupid mistakes? Or do we just avoid students online at all costs? Let’s discuss…

Welcome to EdGamer Episode 18! As we creep closer and closer to our 20th episode we dive deeper into the world of mass gaming. Our topics of interest this week include a look at just how fast gaming is growing through social media, the way social media is corrupting the image of gaming, and how businesses are using gaming as educational tools.

This week’s show is packed with tons of more great gaming and education references for you to check out. Tune in to EdGamer Episode 18!
I always try to think of ways that will get teachers excited about sharing their learning experiences. At conferences, taking teachers to the session about the Personal Learning Network is usually fun. They learn about all the social networking tools that will help them. They end up signing up for Twitter- then – never use it again. I think Twitter is really one of the best resources for getting ahead in Ed, however, it’s not for everybody. Even one of […]
This week on EdGamer Episode 14, we discuss the potential uses of Facebook in the classroom. From utilizing the gaming features the addictive communicative qualities; the possibilities of using Facebook in the educational setting are as endless as one’s creativity.

In this podcast, we talk about the positives (i.e. mobile education) and the negatives (i.e. inappropriate use) of introducing Facebook in your classroom. Join us for this interesting look at educational uses for the most popular social networking site in history.
