A Comprehensive List of Apps and Tools to Flip your Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Chrome Apps | Scoop.it

"A flipped classroom is sometimes the best teaching/learning model some teachers have to use with  their students. The use of technology in a flipped classroom should never be regarded as a supplicant of the teacher but only a complimentary element that increases students learning outcomes.  I have talked a lot and in more details about the flipped classroom and have also devoted an entire section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning for tutorials, guides, and presentations on the use of a flipped learning methodology."

No more multiple account frustration with Google Chrome ~ Lisa Nielsen: The Innovative Educator

No more multiple account frustration with Google Chrome ~ Lisa Nielsen: The Innovative Educator | Chrome Apps | Scoop.it
Editor’s note:  I asked Chris to write this post after he taught me something that has saved me so much time, energy, and frustration because I have personal accounts, professional accounts, and yes, even an account for my dog!  If you have multiple accounts, this post is a must read.  Thank you Chris!!!!


Guest post by Chris Casal


Most educators know that it is a best practice to keep separate professional and personal accounts.  While that makes a lot of sense, in practice this proves quite difficult.  If you have multiple accounts or have shared computers, you likely have experienced the frustration of logging on and off, or adding an account but having to continually enter new credentials.

Google begins barring browser plug-ins from Chrome

Google begins barring browser plug-ins from Chrome | Chrome Apps | Scoop.it
Reliant on plug-ins like Silverlight, Unity, and Java? Make plans to move on or change browsers, because most plug-ins will be banned from Chrome in the next year.

 

In case it wasn't clear before, a Google decision has shown the writing is on the wall for plug-ins such as Java and Silverlight that for years have been used to extend what browsers can do.


Starting in January 2014, Google will ban all but the most widely used browser plug-ins in favor of programming methods that use standards built directly into the Web, Chrome security engineer Justin Schuh announced in a blog post Monday. And those plug-ins will be barred "over the coming year," he said.

Starting at the beginning (of the year or thier school life) makes sense - then this becomes part of the dialogue right through their academic and working careers.

I like the idea of packing this into the first week of school. It needs to be followed up, of course. My bigger worry is how much to teachers and parents know about these topics? They need to be incorporated into the training as well.
