Goodbye, math and history: Finland wants to abandon teaching subjects at school - Quartz

Goodbye, math and history: Finland wants to abandon teaching subjects at school - Quartz | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

Free Technology for Teachers: iPad Apps for K-12 Students | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it
Many of you are already aware that I maintain a few other blogs in addition to FreeTech4Teachers.com. One of those is iPadApps4School.com to which I have applied some lessons that I learned from making mistakes with this blog. One of those mistakes was not making it easier to sort resources according to grade level.

On iPadApps4School.com you can sort app reviews according to grade level category. Simply click on the grade level category in the sidebar to find apps appropriate for the age of your students. You can find elementary school apps here, middle school apps here, and high school apps here. I also have a category for pre-K students. If you want to be notified when a new app is reviewed, you can subscribe to email updates for iPadApps4School.com.

EdTechTeacher Video Tutorial Library

EdTechTeacher Video Tutorial Library | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

Jim Lerman's insight

EdTechTeacher, co-founded by Tom Daccord and Justin Reich, is a wonderful edtech consulting and training organization. Among many things that it does, ETT sponsors conferences, workshops, and leadership seminars. They are perhaps most well known for their Teacher iPad Summits held each year in Boston and San Diego

ETT's website hosts many resources, this Scoop focuses on their outstanding (and growing) collection of video tutorials (185 strong as of today...March 30, 2015). You may find the library on Vimeo (just click on the headline or the image above).

Each video provides a professionally produced demo/explanation of how to use some the the latest and greatest apps and techniques. Recent examples include "Pop up Video with Explain Everything," "VideoNot.es Tutorial," "Snagit Video Tutorial," and "Kaizena Video Tutorial."

All of this material is free. What a generous contribution by these wonderfully talented and creative people!
