Education Innovation: Connect – Collaborate – Innovate
While mainstream social sites, like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are still quite popular among educators, a recent survey conducted in the education community revealed some very interesting facts. Studies showed that educators were more successful using social media that were specific for educators needs. Within the wide expanse of information technology, educators seem to be gravitating towards more protected and exclusive spaces.
An upcoming web portal, educators must watch out for is EDINVERSITY. It is a virtual space that addresses ALL needs of the education community. The services offered by this platform will not only benefit educators but also students/learners. An academic institution could train their employees, within this advanced platform provided by EDINVERSITY for conducting training for their employees.
A noteworthy service of the platform is that it encourages Global Citizenship by allowing educators to “connect classrooms”. The platform enables them to conference entire classes with each other and thereby share best practices without having to leave the safety of their school or geographical boundary. It integrates the framework of social-learning, document management, meetings, Wikis, forums, emailing, chatting, etc. that educators can use for improving their classwork and for their own PD ON-DEMAND.
