How to Use New-Media Tools in Your Classroom | Edutopia

We have talked often in this space about bringing students' lives into the classroom and technology is certainly an important part of many of our student's daily lives. Here is a set of seven videos from Edutopia contributors that offer some interesting insights into using technology in our classrooms. While I don't agree with all of them, for example one of the videos discusses friending students on Facebook which I don't do for a number of reasons, they do have some merit. One thing I learned was that there is a YouTube.edu channel that is there for educational purposes. There are others about things like using digital photography, Twitter, wikis, GPS, and even WII! Some interesting stuff-give it a look; it might help you connect with more students.
