Using School-Safe Social Media Technology to Break Free from Curriculum’s Rusty Cage

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

School-safe social media technology has evolved. ePals LearningSpace includes a full suite of easy-to-use cloud-based web 2.0 tools for communication and collaboration, robust safety and security features, generous storage space, ability to add third party applications and integration with the district’s locally supported and managed resources. This technology, used throughout Hauppauge (NY) Schools, can empower teachers and students to create their own collaborative learning communities and to enjoy more great days of teaching and learning together any time, anywhere and with anyone in the world they choose.  

 

Breaking curriculum free from its "rusty cage" -- constraints of time and place and an overemphasis on objectives that can be explicitly evaluated for grading purposes -- can open a world of exciting new opportunities to discover and develop the unique talents of every student.

 

Cognitive development occurs in a social context containing the powerful forces determining the nature of an individual’s life.
