7 Features of Google Keep for You To Teach With :: Teacher Tech :: Alice Keeler

7 Features of Google Keep for You To Teach With :: Teacher Tech :: Alice Keeler | Common Core and Technology | Scoop.it
Google Keep is an easy way to take quick notes, create to-do lists, or save important information. You can describe Google Keep as “digital post it notes.” Google Keep is great for teachers and students to capture quick thoughts and to collaborate. One trick I use a lot is using the web version with the mobile version at the same time. Taking a picture with my phone in Google Keep quickly gets the image onto my computer.

William Muller's curator insight, July 24, 2015 2:44 PM

This is a very good example of a teacher engaging every student, the students doing most of the speaking; articulating what they see or understand, and having the students bring it together while using critical thinking skills to formulate their arguments to support their reasoning. Bravo to all teachers who step outside of the traditional...Bravo!

4 Chrome Extensions for Teachers - May 2015 * Teacher Tech * by Alice Keeler | Common Core and Technology | Scoop.it
If you are like me, you have way way way too many Chrome extensions. The more extension you have, the more likely you are to run into your browser crashing or running slowly. SimpleExtManager allows you to toggle your Chrome extensions on and off. For those extensions that you use less regularly you can leave them off until you need them.

Coding on iPads - Beginner to Pro - IPAD 4 SCHOOLS | Common Core and Technology | Scoop.it
Code and programming may not be the most important topics on the planet but it is an area of study that sufferers two major problems. one: an industry with millions of unfilled job positions and two: a world where not enough teachers feel confident to run programming projects. The iPad can offer a solution in these situations.

Free Technology for Teachers: Convert PDFs to Google Docs to Differentiate Instructional Materials

Free Technology for Teachers: Convert PDFs to Google Docs to Differentiate Instructional Materials | Common Core and Technology | Scoop.it
Recently, we discovered a feature of Google Drive that has changed how we prepare and access materials and resources for our students. As we attempt to make all curricula digital and thus make it available to all students, the idea of using PDFs was always a problem. PDFs are just not editable in most situations, and this was an issue when it came to modifying and differentiating documents. Adobe Acrobat was our “go to” application for this type of conversion, but it was costly and often hard to come by in an educational setting. Note: We still use Adobe Acrobat for complex projects or documents that do not convert well in Google Drive. With the most recent update to Google Drive, OCR (Optical Character Recognition) capabilities are better and easier than ever.

Some of the things you can do with apps below include: randomly pick student names and teams, divide students into different groups, create random teams in class and many more:

Top iPad Apps for Sketchnoting and Visual Notetaking ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Top iPad Apps for Sketchnoting and Visual Notetaking ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Common Core and Technology | Scoop.it
Sketchnoting is the art of visual recording in which the sketchnoter draws on a multimodal set of tools to communicate their ideas. Unlike traditional note taking, sketchnoting is a primarily visual medium in that it foregrounds the visual element and  highlights connections and hierarchies. Sketchnoting involves the blending of words with drawings, shapes, diagrams, and graphic organizers ( e.g arrows, pointers, bullet points..etc). In short, sketchnoting, as I like to think of it, is an advanced form of doodling.

How Minecraft and Duct Tape Wallets Prepare Our Kids for Jobs That Don’t Exist Yet (EdSurge News)

How Minecraft and Duct Tape Wallets Prepare Our Kids for Jobs That Don’t Exist Yet (EdSurge News) | Common Core and Technology | Scoop.it
Whether it’s Minecraft or duct tape wallets, the childhood passions that seem like fads, if not totally unproductive, can alternatively be seen as mediums for experiencing the virtuous cycle of curiosity: discovering, trying, failing and growing. At DIY, we’ve created a way for kids to explore hundreds of skills and to understand the ways in which they can be creative through them. Often, the skills are unconventional, and almost always the results are surprising. I don’t think it’s important that kids use the skills they learn on DIY for the rest of their lives. What’s important is that kids develop the muscle to be fearless learners so that they are never stuck with the skills they have. Only this will prepare them for a world where change is accelerating and depending on a single skill to provide a lifetime career is becoming impossible.

Would you agree that valuing effort is a part of growth mindset and maker education? How about failure being approached as interactive?

Comprehensive List of Free e-Book Websites for your e-Reader

Comprehensive List of Free e-Book Websites for your e-Reader | Common Core and Technology | Scoop.it

If you own an e-reader you often can only buy e-books from the bookstore that is bundled on your device. Many of the budget e-readers out there don’t even have a bookstore that is accessible by users and many people are left to fend for themselves to load content on it.

Here is a comprehensive free e-book resource catalog online. All of these books are hardware agnostic, which means they are not locked by DRM (Digital Rights Management). All you have to do is simply download a title and load in via the USB cable from your computer to your e-reader. Many of these sites also provide the books in more than one format, so they will work with your Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Barnes and Noble Nook, Sony e-reader and hundreds of others.

Coding for Kids Revisited - Edutopia

Coding for Kids Revisited - Edutopia | Common Core and Technology | Scoop.it
While it feels like we just wrote 7 Apps for Teaching Children Coding Skills, it's been a year, and as we know, that’s a couple of lifetimes in the technology world! Over the past year, we've discovered even more fabulous sites for teaching coding.

With programs like the Hour of Code and other sites, it looks like many children have been exposed to computer programming, but we feel that we still have a long way to go. Graduates with programming skills are in high demand, and it's clear those numbers will only increase. In addition, the skills acquired through programming, like logical thinking, problem solving, persistence, collaboration, and communication, can be applied to any grade level, any subject area, and in every part of life. Programming isn't just limited to computer science majors in college. Like we said a year ago, kids can code -- we have the sites and resources to make it happen. And it's never been more important to provide students with opportunities to be exposed to programming, especially girls and minorities. In the interest of space, we've limited our list to resources for coding with elementary students (ages 5-11), and best of all, free resources!
