these games will help students develop learning and innovation skills such as critical thinking and problem solving to allow them to succeed in work and life in the 21st century.

 Some recommended apps for critical thinking skills. I have not tried any of them yet, so I cannot comment on quality.

"While walking through a school in our region, I walked right past a couple of students working on a project. The task was for them to create a video using Educreations explaining a certain math concept. What intrigued me was they were in the hallway using a very creative low cost podcasting center. "

On incorporating technology in the classroom

Hannah Roukas's curator insight, October 22, 2013 4:55 AM

This post was short but to the point.  Technology should be one of the subjects kids learn in school, it should be used to help kids develop ideas.  Teachers should use technology to keep lessons interesting so kids don't fall asleep or become uninteresting.

Becky Vickers's curator insight, March 11, 8:15 AM

FOR CLASSROOM CLIMATE PLAN: Technology is definitely something I find important for a 21st century classroom climate. Many PBL Projects involve technology and this image provides suggested apps that can allow teachers to cultivate virtual spaces for their classroom. I especially think the National Geographic and TED apps could be particularly useful because they provide a wealth of resources for classroom projects. I would like to make the use of technology routine in my classroom and expand our spaces to include both the physical and virtual spaces available to students. 

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, August 10, 6:49 PM

There are hundreds of apps here: the list is a bit Americanised but very useful. The apps are sorted into categories and rough year levels.
