25 Teaching Tools To Organize, Innovate, & Manage Your Classroom

25 Teaching Tools To Organize, Innovate, & Manage Your Classroom | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

"Over the years, many of us have personally experienced the growth of technology in today’s classrooms. Instead of taking notes, students are now occupied by surfing the Internet, scrolling through Facebook, and messaging their friends on their smart phones, tablets, and laptops. Instead of focusing on the instruction, teachers are constantly required to interrupt class in order to remind those students again and again, that class time is for learning, not texting. However, as today’s students are using more technological devices, it is imperative that teachers have access to the resources to keep pace with the growing tech culture."

Teaching tools in a "tech culture" - even in the classroom...maybe especially in the classroom our teaching tools adapt in order to teach children best practices in organization and learning skills.

It's an early beta but looks promising for making more interesting presentations. Not at "swoopy" as Prezi (that's good).

Matt Bergman describes how he helps his learner built their UDL Toolbox for Presentations. He introduces the tools this fall and then has them use each of them to try out so they can discover what works best for them.  These tools include:

 

> Prezi

> Google Presentations

> VoiceThread

> Domo.GoAnimate

> Wideo

 

Matt has also embedded an audioboo file on this post for those learners who learn best by listening.
