Technology Integration, 1 to 1, and Student Centered Learning… Up To 20 Free Resources and Tools | 21 st Century Educational Technology and Learning | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"In the last post I focused on five important ideas I believe need to be in place to support student centered learning in a technology rich environment. Please note those five concepts be reviewing that first post.

In this post I wish to add to the ten tools I had shared in the last post. Remember that the items I have collected might be a tool, possibly a resource, or collection of resources. It might directly rely on technology or could possibly be a catalyst for integration through its implementation. I hope you find the next ten useful! You can always let me know what to add. In order to become a resource in this kit I had the following criteria:

Free or at least a free tierMultiplatform capabilityFairly easy learning curve for teachers and studentsProvide an avenue or resource that could facilitate student centered learningProvide content and performance based standards

Now lets take a look at the second half of my collection. Please enjoy and let me know what I might add!"

Technology: I chose this resource because it has FREE resources for teachers and schools to use. This is important because a lot of our schools are on limited budgets and need resources that are easy and free so they can try them out and see what will work in their classroom setting.

It features short video explanations (usually less than 5 minutes long) covering different educational topics. The clips are professionally animated using a wide range of visual illustrations to hook in the viewers and keep them engaged. We have already shared some very good TED Ed videos on Math, writing, and several other subject areas. In today’s post we want to highlight some challenging TED Ed riddles to share with your students.
