This is a pretty good list from informED, but it's missing the most important way to avoid teacher burnout: Find support, and fight for improvement by being active in your union.

5 Tech Savvy Teaching Tools That Your Students Will Love and Your Peers Will Envy ~ EmergingEdTech

5 Tech Savvy Teaching Tools That Your Students Will Love and Your Peers Will Envy ~ EmergingEdTech | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

by Kelly Walsh

 

"Do you know a teacher who just always seems to know about the latest technology, and makes it look so easy to produce cool content that students find fun and engaging? Maybe you are one of these teachers? It’s doesn’t have to be hard to use slick tech tools in the classroom. There are so many free, easy to use tools out there. Here are five of my favorites to recommend.


"In addition to explaining the basic functionality of each tool, I’ve provided an example, and offered some thoughts on ‘ease of use’ and whether or not there is a paid plan (all of these tools have free offerings, one has a Premium Plan).

 

"Be patient with yourself if you try these for the first time and find yourself running into challenges. Some are really easy, and some are a little harder. Don’t be too afraid to click stuff and see what happens. Sometimes you have to cast aside caution a bit and take a chance (and yes, sometimes that means you’ll get tripped up, but more often you’ll probably surprise yourself and figure it out!)."

The Mobile Industry In Numbers

The Mobile Industry In Numbers | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

This is the H1 2012 edition of the 100 Million Club - the watch list of the top mobile platforms and handset manufacturers.

This Infographic by VisionMobile will give you some insights into the mobile market and help put things into perspective.

Here are some of the insights:
- Smartphone sales penetration continues to accelerate, growing from nearly 30% in Q3 2011 to nearly 40% in Q2 2012
- Nearly 2 out of every 3 smartphones shipped in H1 2012 were Android devices
- Despite low device sales, the Windows platform already has over 100K available apps in Windows Marketplace
- Although Symbian is obsolete, it still has a sizable installed base – larger than bada and Windows Phone combined
- In the handset market, Apple and Samsung account for 63% of revenues and over 98% of the profits, depriving other vendors of oxygen and therefore the ability to invest in handset differentiation and marketing
- In the smartphone market, Apple and Samsung claim more than half of total shipments. Nokia is shipping more Symbian handsets than WP handsets and their smartphone share has fallen to 7%, down from 16% in H2 2011

These are simply the core facts...

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 27, 2014 1:20 PM

These are really not new, but they are always worth repeating. What is new is perhaps the intensity and frequency with which they happen. The cross-cultural awareness is certainly the case. What works for me culturally does not work for someone half-way around the world. In fact, it might not work here. Educators  need to be aware of that cross-cultural awareness.

Lena Leirdal's curator insight, August 30, 2014 6:36 AM

I love infographics! Learn - create - collaborate!

 

Right 'up the alley' when addressing 21st century skills. I find particularly the "learn"-part interesting: the need for skills to "access, evaluate and use different forms of information, exihbit fluency with tech tools, and exercise critical thinking". Definately a focus relevant for my master´s thesis.

"Your students will often use images, music, and content created by other individuals. Part of teaching our learners digital citizenship, is showing them how to respect copyright and how to properly cite where they found the content they use. Creative Common licensing is a simple way for people to define how their content can be used and remixed. Below are a few ideas and resources to help you teach your learners about creative commons:"

"As educators ponder how to reach disengaged students and foster interest in STEM subjects, the growingmaker movement may hold the keys, according to Sylvia Martinez and Gary Stager, authors of Invent to Learn: Making, Tinkering, and Engineering in the Classroom.


“When we encourage children to build with sand, blocks, paint and glue, we are simply asking them to take what they know and apply it to the real world,” they explain. “In the truest sense, children are natural engineers and we can create classrooms that celebrate this fact.”
