50 Ways Schools Can Use Google+ Hangouts | Edudemic | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

At its core, Google+ Hangouts is simply a souped-up version of video chat. But when it comes to education, it’s so much more than that. It becomes a vehicle for learning, sharing, collaboration, and ideas.

 

Whether you’re an educator discussing learning practices, or a first-grade classroom speaking with an astronaut, Hangouts have seemingly endless possibilities. These are Edudemic's 50 favorite ways for schools to use Google Plus Hangouts.

Goodbye Textbooks! Students Are Embracing the Move to Digital Learning [Infographic]

Goodbye Textbooks! Students Are Embracing the Move to Digital Learning [Infographic] | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it
Students can’t live without their devices, so schools should embrace the change.

 

Tablets are being adopted at an impressive rate, and tablet purchases are expected to outpace smartphone purchases over the next two years. Tablet ownership among college students has correspondingly skyrocketed and a Pearson Foundation survey found that it has tripled from a year ago. One-quarter of college students currently own a tablet.

Being a Digital Native Isn’t Enough

Being a Digital Native Isn’t Enough | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

It is our role as teachers to help students develop the skills to problem solve independently and collaboratively use 21st-century skills while not relying on technology to do all of the thinking for them. Just because these students are digital natives, does not mean that they do not need guidance to navigate the digital world–both in terms of learning how to discern important and relevant information from a large swath of data, and also to be able to inquire and solve problems that take time, thought, and energy.

Apps for multiple intelligences | ipadders.eu

Apps for multiple intelligences | ipadders.eu | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it
What makes the iPad brilliant is that it caters to all different intelligences. In fact most apps touch upon all different types of intelligences. I've tried to match all of my favorite educational apps with their corresponding intelligences.

 

For those apps that matched with more than one, I’ve used equivalents. For example, Showme and Educreations are interactive whiteboard apps that have got the same functions and both fit in the Visual and Aural box. Just like I don’t believe all students fit only in one intelligence box either. All skills need to be developed and the iPad especially makes it do easy to jump from one to the other and more importantly incorporate the different intelligences.
