Technology Tidbits: Thoughts of a Cyber Hero: Top 100 Sites/Apps of 2013

Technology Tidbits: Thoughts of a Cyber Hero: Top 100 Sites/Apps of 2013 | Bring Your Own Device BYOD BYOT | Scoop.it

"Well, here it is my favorite and most popular post of the year, my Top 100 Sites/Apps of the year!!!  Continuing w/ the trend from last year, readers are going to find more and more apps on the list and less sites, as the flux in mobile learning and BYOD (bring your own devices) continues to rise.  Also, you'll notice that there are a lot of learning tools for Digital Storytelling & Math.  I believe the reason for this is because storytelling is a learning tool that can be used by a wide range of educators for any subject, and Math is a very popular subject w/ lots of diverse ways to go about teaching it.  W/ that I hope you enjoy this list and as always thanks again for reading!!!"

Ann Ewel's insight:

I am looking for new online tools to share with our teachers -- and this list looks like it has many that are easy to use -- and that enhance learning.  Like Geddit  -- where the students can give the teacher feedback on how well they understand -- sounds very cool.

Infographics can be useful tools whenever you are trying to convey information with a strong visual approach. Infographics are especially good at making numerical data easy to see and understand.

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | Bring Your Own Device BYOD BYOT | Scoop.it

"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs.

 

In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves.

 

Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."

Inquiry Learning isn't something I do that often.

Martin Debattista's curator insight, February 28, 2:30 AM

Many of these app are also available for Android - Dropbox, Evernote, Skype, all Google apps obviously etc. 

Mick Huiet's curator insight, March 15, 2:06 AM

This is a very logical organization of apps.  It would be interesting to compares other schools or districts app usage in this manner.

Deborah Fillman's curator insight, November 6, 2013 5:06 PM

Love the idea of teaching kids digital "self-defense," rather than focusing on erecting barriers they might see as challenges to overcome, or "problems" to solve. They not only need to guard against bullies and predators, but also that  that they have a "digital footprint" that will follow them throughout their lives. 

 

Tina Jameson's curator insight, November 7, 2013 5:07 PM

Prepare students for their online future: this freely available online tool allows students to 'play' and work their way through different levels, building up vital understanding of 'digital footprints' and cyber safety in the process.  Seems to be aimed at a junior primary to middle school level.

 

This article explains how one Librarian has used the tool successfully, and provides links to the 'Digital Passport' program.

Llandrillo Library's curator insight, November 29, 2013 5:02 AM

Having to earn a digital passport or badge before you can get access to email or laptops/tablets in school is a great way of spreading the digital citizenship message and making sure everyone has had the same standard of training. This would be useful approach across all sectors, not just primary.
