3 Excellent Real Time Collaborative Whiteboard Tools for Teachers | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

There are several reasons why you would be thinking to use collaborative white boards in your classroom . As a teacher, you can use these collaborative web tools to explain abstract hard to grasp concepts to your students through  diagrams, illustrative drawings, mindmaps...etc .

 

You can also use them to get students working collaboratively on a classroom project.The cool thing about these collaborative whiteboard tools is that they are web-based and therefore do not require any software installation and you can access them anywhere with internet connection. Here are three new tools I recommend for you today, check them out below and share with us what you think of them.

Smart and Fast Are Not Enough: The Need for Better EQ

Smart and Fast Are Not Enough: The Need for Better EQ | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

Far more than your intellectual potential (IQ), your emotional quotient (EQ) predicts your success. 

 

In a study of workers at all levels, the single most important factor that distinguished star performers was EQ, as Daniel Goleman reports in Working with Emotional Intelligence. Of all the strengths required for excellence, 67% are emotional competencies.

Webmasters help for hacked sites – Google | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

Unfortunately, it’s likely your site was hacked.Every day, cybercriminals compromise thousands of websites. Hacks are often invisible to users, yet remain harmful to anyone viewing the page — including the site owner. For example, unbeknownst to the site owner, the hacker may have infected their site with harmful code which in turn can record keystrokes on visitors’ computers, stealing login credentials for online banking or financial transactions. 

In this first step, we explain how and why hacks happen, and review options for recovery.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 13, 2013 11:13 AM

There’s been a lot of talk about 21st century learners, 21st century teachers, and connected classrooms. There’s a daily influx of new technology into your inbox and your classroom feels woefully behind the times even if you’re flipping your 1:1 iPad classroom that’s already online and part of a MOOC. What are modern teachers to do with all this jargon and techno-babble being thrown at them all day long?

Simple. Take a step back. Breathe. And pick out just a small number of things you want to try in your classroom. Whether you’re itching to try a BYOD classroom or simply integrating a HyFlex model, it’s easy to take one digital step at a time, right? No need to try and revolutionize your classroom in one afternoon. That’s a recipe for failure.

In my experience, I’ve seen teachers attempt to integrate 30 iPads into their classroom by handing them out and then trying to figure out which apps are worth using. Integrating something as powerful as the iPad takes months of preparation, professional development, and buy-in by the students. If they just think ‘hey a way for me to play Angry Birds during class!’ then you have a steep hill to climb. So that’s why I’d encourage you, the modern teacher, to tackle each modern method one at a time.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, March 13, 2013 5:11 PM

It is worthy of note that this list is comprised predominantly of affective attitudes and skills, that is, how a teacher handles themselves and their relationships. technology amplifies human behaviours; those behaviours need to be professional, sustainable and relational.

You Want Me To Use This In My Classroom? What's The Point? | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

 

There is one in every school. There is one in every district. There is that one teacher, no matter what you do, no matter how much time you take, how slow you go, how much one-on-one time you spend with them, there is that one teacher who is not going to integrate technology into their classroom. They dig in their heals.

 

===> They bury their heads in the sand. <===

 

They shut the doors to their classroom, leaving technology (and perhaps ultimately quality learning) out in the cold.
