The 30 Best Educational Games for the iPad: Adult Edition

The 30 Best Educational Games for the iPad: Adult Edition | coursematters.org | Scoop.it
Most educational games for the iPad aim squarely at the kiddish crowd. But those punk whippersnappers who need to get off the lawn shouldn’t have all the fun. Adults can enjoy their own as well, including these!

Using Social Media In The Classroom For Real-World Learning

Using Social Media In The Classroom For Real-World Learning | coursematters.org | Scoop.it
There is already evidence that teachers are using social media as part of teaching strategies, with the aim of encouraging students to view social networks as less of a pleasurable distraction, and more as something that can be used in projects and for personal expression in a medium they prefer.

The use of social media for learning is essential, particularly in secondary (high schools). Too many teens are engaged with social media, for fast periods of time, with no return on their investment. Schools and their pupil's would benefit from the social media angle.

Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012: The Flipped Classroom

Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012: The Flipped Classroom | coursematters.org | Scoop.it

As I noted above, the idea of the “flipped classroom” wasn’t new to 2012. Nor was it something devised by Khan Academy or TED. Video-taped lectures assigned as homework can be traced back to Colorado math teacher Karl Fisch who had his work popularized in turn by a story in 2010 by Daniel Pink who called the practice “flip thinking” or the “Fisch flip.” But well before that, many other educators were thinking about ways they could “flip” or reverse instruction: chemistry teachers Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams recorded their lessons circa 2007. And in the 1990s, let’s not forget, Harvard professor Eric Mazur pioneered the idea of peer instruction in order to alter his own teaching practices away from heavy reliance on lecturing.

9 Simple Tips For Connecting With Your Students On Twitter - Edudemic | coursematters.org | Scoop.it
My goal is not only to answer the “why do I have to take this course?” question when they enter the class but to spark and encourage a life-long interest in science. Twitter is an excellent tool to reach and teach my students about science both during the class and long after those final grades have been submitted by posting content that engages and interests students.

myHomework Student Planner

myHomework Student Planner | coursematters.org | Scoop.it

myHomework is an app where students can manage their school life. Available on the iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, Windows 8 and the web, myHomework replaces the traditional student planner.

 

This is a great app for all students: elementary, middle school, high school, college and beyond. The most important feature of this app is that it is simple and intuitive.  There's not much to it.  Sometimes, apps for organizing are too time consuming to set up and use. This one is simple as 1-2-3.
