Social Media and the Daily Tasks of Teaching

Dear Colleagues:

Have you ever wondered how social media and professional development tools can be used to help teachers complete the daily tasks of teaching? Here is a list of what teachers can do with social media and PD tools and a link to our learning community with example scenarios of how they do it to improve student learning.

Typical Daily Tasks of Teaching:
  1. Plan standards-based units and lessons
  2. Construct formative and summative assessments
  3. Align standards, instruction or training, and assessment
  4. Teach a skill, concept, process, or principle
  5. Integrate graphic organizers
  6. Differentiate instruction, training, and assessment
  7. Evaluate learner performances with scoring tools such as rubrics
  8. Analyze learner performance data and act on results 
  9. Clone and WikiTask lessons and other teaching tasks to colleagues
  10. Communicate with colleagues and other members
