Welcome to Apps for Productivity in Teaching

Welcome to Apps for Productivity in Teaching | Apps for productivity in teaching | Scoop.it

This site was born out of a workshop I presented as part of my previous school's regular workshop weeks - one week of each term regular meeting times are turned over to teachers (and the occasional outside presenter) to share their skills, knowledge and passion for education.

I used Mentormob.com to create a resource for the workshop (you will find that resource here, it is a fantastic format for curating resources for a specific time or place) but soon realised that it wasn't the best format for the dynamic resource that I hope this will become.

Every day someone publishes a blogpost, a screencast or releases a new tool that could help teachers streamline their work and become more efficient and productive - this Scoop will be where I share everything I find that fit's the bill.

This scoop's logo image was created by Robert Cailliau, I found it in the Open Clipart Library - http://openclipart.org/detail/88585/www-openbook-by-robertcailliau
