Handy iPad Posters to Use in The First Week of School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Handy iPad Posters to Use in The First Week of School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Class Tech | Scoop.it

"If you are planning to incorporate iPad in your classroom teaching then you definitely need to work on some preliminary stuff before anything else. These are basically formalities and conventions students need to abide by when using iPad in class. Making students explicitly aware of their responsibilities behind using iPad in class will certainly help you tap into the full educational potential of this versatile gadget. I have gone through my archive and picked out these handy visuals for you to use with your students."

10 good ways to integrate Mobile Phones in class

10 good ways to integrate Mobile Phones in class | Class Tech | Scoop.it

When it comes to integrating mobile phones in learning , many teachers show a deep-seated concern over it. But let's face it students as early as primary grades have phones and have already developed key skills to use them. Phones and other digital media are part and parcel of their lives if not an important part of it. So instead of banning them from using the digital media they are already familiar with, it would be better to look into ways to embrace these media and leverage its power to enhance students learning. In this regard, the visual below outlines 10 useful examples of how you can integrate phones in classroom learning. Have a look and as always share with us what you think of it.

The beginner's guide to Google in the classroom | Class Tech | Scoop.it

Google offers a ton of solutions for students, teachers, and classrooms.

The handy infographic below takes a look at some usage statistics on Google tools in the classroom along with a few tidbits about Apps for Education if you’re not familiar with them. Keep reading to learn more. 

 

Do you use any of Google’s tools in your classroom (whether they’re specifically geared towards teachers, students and classrooms or not)? What are your favorites?

11 free online storage services to claim your space in the cloud | Class Tech | Scoop.it

Find out where you can get free cloud storage and what the limitations are. Organize your files and sign up for free cloud storage accounts to keep everything backed up and accessible for nothing.

 

It’s so easy to generate a mountain of digital files nowadays. We take more photos than ever, shoot hours of video, and love to share. Cloud storage provides convenient access wherever we may be, like a digital filing cabinet, and it’s also great for collaborating on projects and provides a simple way of sharing files with selected family, friends, or business contacts. But it can also cost a pretty penny.

It is good concept to try Flip My Classroom.

Helen Teague's curator insight, August 3, 9:17 AM

Beth Dichter's insight:

This infographic/visualization provides six steps that show how to flip a classroom. It also makes it clear that after you work through the six steps you must also review what has taken place, revise as necessary and then repeat.

The six steps are:

1. Plan

2. Record

3. Share

4. Change

5. Group

6. Regroup

But to understand what they mean by each of these you should go to the post. Flipping the classroom takes time, but today there are many locations where you can find great videos that will work for you. There are numerous tools available that help you create videos on your own, or take an existing video and add comments, questions, etc., so that it will meet your needs. If you are considering using video as a way to flip your class in the upcoming school year this post also provides links to additional resources that you may find helpful.

Maker Education and Experiential Education - User Generated Education

Maker Education and Experiential Education - User Generated Education | Class Tech | Scoop.it

"As those who follow me on Twitter and via this blog know, I am an advocate of the Maker Educationmovement.  The reason, as I’ve mentioned, is that I come from a background in Experiential Education.  Many of underlying principles and learning activities related to maker education fit nicely into the tenets and principles related to experiential education.  Since this discipline-learning philosophy has been around a lot longer than the more formalized, current maker education movement, those attempting to move maker education into more traditional educational settings might draw from the writings and literature of experiential education to help explain and contextualized maker education."
