14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools | Tech in Education | Scoop.it

Saying that it has always been this way, doesn’t count as a legitimate justification to why it should stay that way. Teacher and administrators all over the world are doing amazing things, but some of the things we are still doing, despite all the new solutions, research and ideas out there is, to put it mildly, incredible.

As a teacher working in a school where we are wanting to introduce BYOD as the norm, we do have a lot of barriers to building that culture in the school environment.  Food for thought going forward.

Google Apps, I believe are leading the way to student productivity. As teachers, we may see this as another hurdle in learning new technology, but students will grasp the concepts of Drive, Sharing, Collaborating, and etc, much easier than their teachers. I never thought about using the drawing as a whiteboard tool. Will have to give it a shot. Our district currently doesn't support hangouts, but with iPads we can probably use facetime in much the same way as described.

Google Sites not only offers an easy-to-use interface for publishing content to the web quickly, but also offers a host of integrations with other Google Apps services. You can easily embed documents, spreadsheets, and presentations you’ve created in Google Drive by using the insert function. The feature I really like is the ability to embed a video. Now that Drive allows you to store and play several video formats such as mp4 and wmv, you can easily upload your video to Drive and embed it on your site for others to view.
