How can these apps support what we do in the classroom? This list helps to motivate me.

It looks very helpful and practical. We cannot be expert in all things digital.

Lee Hall's curator insight, April 19, 2013 4:51 PM

Thanks for the great list of tools. Symbaloo itself is a great one for using with students. I try to use a small set at a time with children.

9 Tools to Create E-magazines and Newspapers for Your Class

9 Tools to Create E-magazines and Newspapers for Your Class | Articles re. education | Scoop.it

I am pretty sure as you introduce the idea to your students everyone will want to have a say in their next e-magazine. There is nothing much more rewarding to students then to have a proof of their hard work recognized in a publication of some sort.

 

Most of the tools cited here are easy to use and have user friendly interface and they will let you create your own e-magazine or newspaper in few simple steps. Yet I would recommend your discretion as you use them with your students.

This course has been a tedious and challenging at time; however, I think that the redesign activities really helped me to see how my activities and lessons can be improved in order to help my students.

80 Educational Alternatives to YouTube

80 Educational Alternatives to YouTube | Articles re. education | Scoop.it

Kids learn best when they see how things work, when, where and why they happen. Watching educational videos is a great way to learn because it allows kids to build a visual picture or model in their mind. The visual dimension not only helps them understand concepts better but also stimulates curiosity and encourages self-training.

Piktochart App, Creating Engaging Presentations... could be interesting BUT  on first sight it's not so easy to use.  The accompanying video suggests intuitive, but I couldn't get it... so, you can't produce immediately.  I'll need to spend some time on here.

Alison Rostetter's insight:

I'm always on the lookout for a good, easy-to-use video/animation maker as 'home-made' videos often inject some life into grammar and, when you learn something with pictures, I think it makes the learning more memorable.

The Prince of Wales is absolutely right – bring back grammar schools

It was a stormy graduation day in Cambridge on Saturday. Drenched with rain, the students in their gowns looked like penguins emerging from the sea.
Alison Rostetter's insight:

I don't live in Britain any more, but I do try to keep up with life over there and it seems to me that this article is talking a lot of sense.  I went to a Grammar school and I suspect, had I had to attend a comprehensive school I would not be the person I am today.  Grammar school was tough, but we learned and we learned in a very competetive environment that is missing today.
