John Dalziel's curator insight, June 28, 2014 4:15 AM

81 Dash provides a place for practitioners to create chat rooms to use with learners to host conversations and share files.
Once registered practitioners can begin creating rooms where messages and files can be exchanged.
As the owner of a room practitioners can delete messages written by their learners; this resolves the complaint many practitioners have about many other backchannel tools.
What's the complaint?
Not having a way to delete messages or delete a room if learners write inappropriate things in the backchannel.
Learners join an 81 Dash room by going to the URL that is assigned to their room.
When they arrive in the room for the first time they will be asked to register.
There are two registration options; registering as a "guest user" does not require learners to enter email addresses.
A big plus for a backchannel is it allows "shy" learners to ask questions and share comments.
To be fair it also provides a good outlet for more outspoken learners who want to comment on everything.

With the recent announcement of Google Classroom, school districts and educators across the country that are currently integrating Google Apps for Education into their classrooms are awaiting the opportunity to gain access to Google’s workflow solution.

 

While there are currently a number of workflow solutions and approaches within Google Drive that classroom teachers can take that range from manual organization and file / folder sharingto advanced automation with tools such asDoctopus, Google Classroom provides a viable option that strikes a balance – blending tight integration with Google Drive, an intuitive interface and advanced features that experienced Google Drive users are looking for.

Do Teachers Need iPad Training? - Edudemic

Do Teachers Need iPad Training? - Edudemic | 4Cs in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"We have come to a point in the education technology journey where it seems rather dull to still be asking if the iPad is the right device for the classroom. The answer, in case you’ve missed the last few years of debate is that it is a great option, but this is not universally accepted and never will be. Nonetheless, one of the attributes you’ll hear put forward is that it is easy to use because of the intuitive nature of iOS. This is absolutely true; you can put the iPad into the hands of almost any child and within a short period of time they will have mastered it.


So does it then follow that you can out the iPad into the hands of teachers and expect the same results?

 

No."

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, August 10, 2014 7:16 PM
The emphasis on iPads is a bit of a distraction here - the issue is related more to the ability of teachers to create engaging learnng opportunities where technology use extends and enhances the students' capacity for self-direction, information literacy, collaboration. culural awareness, etc... be it with an iPad or other ICT, the point is that too many teachers still rely on delivery and control, rather than authentic opportunities for learning.
Gary Harwell's curator insight, August 18, 2014 3:38 PM

The answer if YES!

Ness Crouch's curator insight, April 15, 2015 7:14 PM
