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

Bullet Journal is and anolog journaling and note taking system for the digital age
Heather Bailie's insight:

I've tried lots of iPhone apps for task management but none of them have "stuck" and I always end up going back to paper lists.

This system is clever and easy to use...and in my Evernote Moleskin journal I can digitise it all later.

App Smashing for Teachers: The Power of App Cross Pollination (EdSurge News)

App smashing is a phrase used to denote the process during which teachers and/or students create content by starting with one app and using another app to enhance its creation process. It’s similar to adding bells and whistles to your smartphone to make more out of what you’ve got. And oftentimes, the eventual hope is that the content you create will be posted on the web.

8 Ways For Teachers To Save Time In The Classroom

Teachers think about a lot during the course of a school day — from planning lessons tied to the core curriculum to making sure Jimmy gets home on the right bus. One thing teachers often do not think about is saving themselves time, but they should.

You may feel like it’s just one more thing to add to your plate. In reality, figuring out more efficient ways of working means you have more time to devote to your students, more time to be creative, and more time to relax and recharge your batteries.
