What's Popular This Week on The Innovative Educator

Here’s the roundup of what's been popular on The Innovative Educator blog this week. Below you’ll see my top weekly posts along with the number of pageviews in the past 7 days.

This week the #1 spot goes to 5 Reasons Why The Class of 2020 Won't Go to College.  The post tells why colleges need to completely re-think their models if they don’t want youth lured away by new income and actualization opportunities. Sites for Using iPads in Education also makes the top three for another week in a row! iPads are hot, hot, hot...so I’m not surprised this post with recommendations from Apple made it to the top.

There are three posts in the top ten that look at using Facebook in learning environments.  They are:
  1. Using Facebook in Education features a Prezi presentation which highlights one school leader who bans and blocks and another who empower and prepares.  It moves on to show how Facebook is being used in primary school and secondary school.  
  2. Facebook Doesn't Make you Dumb - This post features an info graphic that does a nice job of explaining this as it relates to education.  
  3. 8 Real Ways Facebook Enriched Ms. Schoening’s 1st Grade Class - This article explains how and why first grade teacher Erin Schoening uses Facebook with her first graders.
Rounding out the top five is You and Your Students Can Be The Next Sal Kahn with ShowMe. ShowMe is a terrific new iPad app that lets you do Padcasting which is similar to screencasting which means capturing what you are doing on your iPad as a tutorial that others can watch and learn from.  Number five this week is 10 Proven Strategies to Break the Ban which provides real examples and insights from teachers who were able to successfully break the ban on tech use in their schools.  

To follow are several other interesting posts. I hope there's something that looks of interest to you.  If it does, check it out. If you’re so inspired leave a comment.
