If you’re that person, then you’re going to love, love Pixabay, a site that hosts over 240,000 high quality public domain photos, illustrations and vector graphics free of charge for any purpose (the legal kind, of course).

3 Different Things You Can Do With Google Classroom

3 Different Things You Can Do With Google Classroom | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

by Nikolaos Chatzopoulos

 

Google’s advance in the education field has brought to schools around the globe affordable devices and effortless access to educational content. Google’s latest solution for learning is called Google Classroom. Although Google Classroom will be available at the beginning of the school year to all schools that have adopted Google Apps for Education, the Mountain View based company granted access to Google Classroom to a select few individuals in July. I was fortunate enough to be one of these early adopters/testers of Google Classroom, and I can honestly say that I am impressed by its simplicity, and its ability to seamlessly integrate Google Docs, Sheets,Drive, Gmail, and more in order to provide a wonderful and highly productive user experience.

Using iMovie to Introduce New Topics

Using iMovie to Introduce New Topics | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

"So after years of always being asked “what are we doing next sir?” and “what is that?”  I thought it would be a good idea to create some promo videos that I can share with students to introduce what they will be doing next and develop a sense of excitement about what is coming up.

 

To do this i chose iMovie on my iPad as it is really simple to create professional looking trailers."

Gamify Learning with Edtech Bingo

Gamify Learning with Edtech Bingo | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

’ve spent a great deal of time this summer preparing and facilitating professional development for teachers involving the integration of iPads into the classroom. So when I inadvertently came across this really neat iPad Bingo visual while searching for edtech infographics on Pinterest, I knew I had to further investigate this concept.

 

Well, my surfing resulted in the following: Media technology specialist Josh Borzick from Oak Creek, Wisconsin created the iPad Bingo site to provide teachers with integration ideas related to six apps—Google Drive, Skitch, 30 Hands, Popplet, Doceri and Touchcast. The page includes the iPad Bingo card, which contains a set of activities for students to learn how to utilize each app at varying degrees of difficulty.

To help you and your students create your own amazing images, Edublogger has compiled a list of  3  online photo editors. In order to be on the list, each of these tools must meet these three requirements:

  1. It is free to use.
  2. It requires no registration.
  3. It provides educators and students with an intuitive, easy-to-learn photo editing tool.

And the tools are:

* Picadilo

10 Ways to Integrate Mobile Phones in Class

10 Ways to Integrate Mobile Phones in Class | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

Phones, tablets, iPads and e-readers… What do these mobile devices have in common? It’s probably a pretty safe bet to say that most students own at least one of them in this day and age. So, instead of continually confiscating these items or telling students to put them away, why not take advantage of the handheld gadget craze and leverage these tools for learning?


Allowing students to utilize their own devices provides them with access to a variety of digital activities, essentially creating a 1:1 environment with a tool they already know how to use.


Furthermore, with many schools experiencing limited budgets, the BYOD concept is one that should be seriously considered. Without devices to complement learning, students are missing out on a modernized education as well as the development of important life skills. Yeah, that means actually having the know how to use technology beyond gaming and social media!

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Flip Your Classroom With eduClipper and PixiClip

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Flip Your Classroom With eduClipper and PixiClip | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

"Teachers interested in trying the flipped classroom model often ask me for recommendations for video creation tools. They also often ask me for ideas on sharing videos without using YouTube. One answer to both of these questions is to useeduClipper.

On the free eduClipper iPad app you can create instructional videos on a whiteboard in the Khan Academy style. You can also use the app to create a video in which you annotate an image or document while talking about it. After creating your video you can save it to an eduClipper board that you have shared with your students through the eduClipper classroom setting. Your students can view the videos on their iPads or in the web browsers on their laptops."
