What Educators Want from Digital Tools (2.0)

What Educators Want from Digital Tools (2.0) | Cool tools for education | Scoop.it
This study of more than 3,100 teachers revisits key questions explored in the original Teachers Know Best report: how teachers use digital instructional tools in the classroom, as well as their attitudes towards technology and whether they believe existing digital tools are effective. As with the original report, research centered on consumer analytics and insight provides an opportunity to shift from anecdotes to a richer understanding of whether product developers are creating the digital tools that teachers want and need,

Wonderful ways to engage students to show what they know. My students love many of these tools and we look forward to exploring more.
WEAC's curator insight, April 28, 9:51 AM

"With a myriad of web tools and apps available to teachers, it’s sometimes mind-boggling trying to identify which are the most effective for the classroom. But if you’re looking for some innovative ways to showcase student work, here’s an awesome visual collection of resources spanning 11 categories—audio recordings, collages, comics, posters, slides, digital books, narrated slideshows, movies, animations, screen casts and study aids—to help get you started!"

Virtual reality — from the living room to the classroom | #VR 

Virtual reality — from the living room to the classroom | #VR  | Cool tools for education | Scoop.it
VR has long been heralded as a potential influential tool in academia. A 1998 study, Educational Uses of Virtual Reality Technology, published by Christine Youngblut of the Institute for Defense Analyses, found that when compared to traditional classroom environments, students of different backgrounds, ages and across a variety of different experiments generally had a positive experience with virtual reality. Moreover, their virtual lessons were evaluated as either being superior or on par with human instructors, and motivation among students was “extremely high.”

There is a coming new age in education, where students can learn by experience. This will be driven by virtual reality technology, and powered by UGC content. We are just beginning to see huge breakthroughs in the imaginative educational content that developers are creating for kids and young teenagers alike. The VR landscape is evolving — all the way from the living room to the classroom.
