"This week I’ve been getting excited about using Kahoot in the classroom. Kahoot delivers online quizzes and surveys to your students. It works very similar to the more well-known Socrative. The teacher displays the question and the answers on the beamer or tv in the front of the classroom. The students see the corresponding icon and color on their screen. They have 30 seconds to answer on their devices and get points for every question they answer right. The quicker they answer the more points they receive. After each question the top 5 students are shown on the board with their scores. This is where it gets exciting. The students love this immediate feedback and want to get to the top position. I have never seen students so focused on answering the questions correctly."

Coding is the New Literacy - Think Playgrounds, Not Playpens - FRACTUS LEARNING

Coding is the New Literacy - Think Playgrounds, Not Playpens - FRACTUS LEARNING | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
There is no denying that coding is snowballing in importance across schools all around the world. Whether it’s Scratch, Programming Games or the Hour of Code, an understanding of software and the ability to code is fast becoming an essential skill for all 21st century learners.

At a recent TEDx event in Jackson Mississippi, Professor Marina Bers discussed her research into the design and study of innovative learning technologies to promote children’s positive development. How does this research manifest and present itself in the real world? Well programming robots of course!

The real fear among those who study kids and handwriting is not that our schools will stop teaching cursive; it's that students aren't writing enough.

Twitter for Educators Beginner's Guide ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Twitter for Educators Beginner's Guide ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

"I strongly believe in the educational value of Twitter as a tool to help us improve our teaching practices and enrich our learning journey. I have devoted an entire section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning to Twitter in Education. A lot of you have been regularly  following and reading this section  and I am so glad to hear that some of you have their Tweeting experience tremendously improved since they started reading those posts.Feedback such as this  does really make me happy  and encourage me to work harder because at the end of the day what remains is that beautiful feeling one feels knowing that he/she has helped somebody out.

That being said, let me now share with you one of the best guides on the use of Twitter in education. This short guide (  made up of  just 11 neat and well compacted pages ) will walk you step by step through the process of mastering the art of Tweeting. I am pretty sure you will enjoy reading it, and before sharing it with you let me just express my deep gratitude for Amber Coggin for this great work."

321 free tools. It's an odd number, in more than one way. I cannot imagine the work to compile this list nor the work involved to determine which of these tools might be best suited for a teacher and his or her classroom. Of course, this list is only the beginning of possibilities.

"As a teacher, you are used to create your own lessons. The xerox, Microsoft Word, and PowerPoint are your trusted companions. But how can you effectively use iPads in your lessons?

The ebooks provided by publishers are mostly static and just not interesting enough for today’s students. Some educational apps are great, but finding the rights ones, figuring out how they work and getting them installed on all student devices can be a hassle.

Aren’t there easy ways to create your own materials for iPad? Yes, there are! Try these:"

8 Cool Mobile Apps Created by High School Students - EmergingEdTech | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
One of my very favorite uses of technology in education is when it used by students to create things. There are so many ways to be creative with technology – writing, creating art work, composing music, creating web sites, developing presentations, and so on.

One of the most intense and potentially rewarding creative undertaking students can tackle is coding – developing their own programs! The resources available to help interested individuals learn how to code have never been better or more plentiful. Schools and teachers have embraced this as an opportunity, setting students up to learn coding (and some highly motivated students take it on themselves).
