Great Ways to Use Google Docs - Presented Visually ~ Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

These days a good way to capture the attention of an audience is to present information visually. For this reason, I created a glog of popular ways to use Google Docs for Learning to share with the teachers at our middle school. Just look at the glog, find something that interests you, and click on a link to see snippets of samples implemented by our teachers.

Great way to turn Power Point presentations into YouTube videos using Prezi!

Vittorio Canavese's curator insight, March 30, 2013 11:41 AM

Prezi non può essere considerato propriamente uno strumento per i webdoc, ma costituisce un'esperienza interessante e utile magari per arrivarci e cambiare il modo di concepire la documentazione per la didattica.

20 Ways To Make Professional Development More Effective

20 Ways To Make Professional Development More Effective | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Administrators often ask how to best utilize their staff meeting time to promote best instructional practices and improve professional development.

 

It has been said that once teachers start teaching, we become the most uneducated of professionals about our own profession, failing to research and implement the cutting-edge best practices that make the difference in student engagement and learning. We can’t use 20th century practices with our 21st century students.

 

In order to encourage and even demand curiosity, creativity, learning, sharing and growing in our students, we must model those traits within our own profession; a staff meeting is the perfect time to cultivate these skills within and among our colleagues.

Aidan Tan Zhao Chern's curator insight, March 14, 2016 11:44 PM

This article i am going to talk about today is about teaching and education in the 21st century. First of all, I agree with the writer that 20th century practices cannot be used with 21st century students, because they are the one who will benefit from it and support the future, and this plan is only foolproof if the students comply.
